When Sneakers Just Won’t Do


I understand.  We all love our shoes.  We love our heels, our boots, our sandals and even our oh-so-comfy sneakers.  But when I became a new mom I learned that most of the favorites in my closet were just not up to par when having to chase around after a toddler.  My heels all got hidden in the back of the closet because there was no way I could possibly run around in those all day anymore.  Sneakers soon became my go-to shoes, even though I absolutely despised having to give up on style for comfort.  I was soon on the hunt for the best of both worlds… a shoe with chic style that was as comfortable as my sneakers.


Enter the Felize Driving Mocs from M. Gemi



My life saver.  My holy grail of shoes. Literally. These beauties have the classically chic look I desired while feeling like a sneaker!  Finally the perfect match for my new mom-life!  Over the past few years, I have
acquired several amazing colors of these shoes and since they come out with fantastic new colors each season, I am already deciding on my next pair!  I just cannot stay away.  They actually mold to your feet with each wear and they look perfect to wear all day long from school drop off, to running errands – and you never have to give up that style for comfort!


Not only are these shoes luxurious, stylish and incredibly comfortable, but I love that they are handmade in Toscana, Italy.  You can completely tell that so much care and craftsmanship has gone into the making of each pair from the minute you open the beautiful box!  When I received my first pair, to my surprise, there was a handwritten note in the box that said the shoes were made specifically for me with my name written on it!  How cool is that!  Since M. Gemi only works with smaller family-owned factories in Italy, they really do make each pair just for you!  And you can absolutly see this craftsmanship, in every beautiful detail of the shoes!  My favorite details are the pegs on the back and bottom of the soles.  For some reason I think these make the style look ultra chic.


Another great detail — There is a color of Felize to fit every outfit, season or even your mood!  They come in Suede, Leather, Metallics, and I am scoping out the gorgeous Calf Hair ones!   I personally have a deep Magenta, Latte, and a Cappuccino Mule style which is my absolute favorite!  Some others include Black, Midnight Blue, Poppy, Pink Blossom and several Neutral Hues.  On January 27th,  M. Gemi will also be launching several new fabrics and colors which I am also very excited to see!  These include, Brown Sugar (love!), Pink Azalea, Cobalt Blue, Caramel, Orange Peel, and a Graphite on both Printed Croc and Printed Snakeskin – how will anyone ever choose!
