When I look at my shoe closet there are a few key missing pieces, one of which is the “in between” flats. I call “in between” flats – flats that aren’t dressy/cutesy but at the same time aren’t quite as casual or sporty as running shoes. I’d like to have some more comfy shoes for running around on weekends, but I don’t want to spend a fortune on them since I will probably only wear them maybe 10 times a year (just being honest – I can’t wear casual shoes to work so they would be basically daytime weekend only shoes, and in the summertime I usually resort to sandals so I’m sure these wouldn’t get worn tons and tons, but they are essential none the less).
Anyway here are a couple options I am thinking about.
TOMS: I love that this Company donates a pair of shoes to a child in need for every pair of TOMS that are purchased. Who doesn’t love a company with a little heart and soul? The only thing I’m not sure about is that I wonder if these would make my feet look really long. Shoes like these, without laces, seem to make the foot look a little longer don’t you think? Although I’ve seen these on several people and like how they look on others, just not too sure how I will feel once they are actually on my feet (just one of those things I am weird about).
Here's a nice mellow yellow option, although I think I'm really fond of that dark grey above. Classic Canvas TOMS in Yellow Bridgeport Linen, $48.
For something that stands out a bit more, I'm really enjoying this fun red color. Classic Canvas TOMS in Red Bridgeport Linen, $48.
These may appear to be a bit over the top, but I have seen these pictured on people and paired with simple clothing, they are actually quite cute. Tyler Ramsey Hand Painted TOMS, $68.
KEDS: Since I’m kind of an old school type, and I dig shoes with laces, I could just go back to the classic Keds. I’m loving this dip-dye version in grey or purple even.
Keds Champion Dip Dye Shoes, $40. The grey is classic, but that purple is kind of fun too!

CONVERSE: These are a little bit sportier so I'm a little hesitant, but I think I like these too. They come in grey or yellow (and yellow would be a fabulous and fun little color I think).
What casual “in between” shoes have you been rocking? I’d love any suggestions. :)
