For fall 2015, it’s all about the bootie at Aerosoles. There are more styles than ever to choose from, with each one being more stylish than the last! Speaking of, this season is as much about style as it is about comfort, featuring a new, pointed-toe silhouette for the brand, alongside the ultra-plush heel rest technology found in the Nostalgic heel style. Modern hardware detailing that are equestrian, country, and moto-inspired take precedence, while additional adornments such as fringe and multiple zips and buckles are hard to miss. Rich, fall hues, such as a vibrant cobalt, and fabrics such as brushed suede reign supreme for the season in a collection comprised of favorites found on your feet both during the work week and weekend. See the slideshow above for some of my favorites from the lineup, hitting stores and Aerosoles.com in August.

Summer is great; fantastic, I even venture to say; the weather definitely seems to lift the moods of the Manhattanites around me, people leisurely lounge and day drink, and the fashion is just phenomenal. With that being said, when dressing, one must strike the perfect balance between the sweltering, miserable heat down in the subways, and the freezer box bursts of chilly air found in offices, stores, and restaurants.
I create a balance for these drastic temperature changes by: 1) always carrying a roomy bag to stash a lightweight cardigan or scarf and water bottle 2) dress in layers 3) if the temperature is below 75 degrees, pants are extremely helpful.
Remember too, that in the heat, especially as the day goes on, feet have the tendency to swell; I wore these medium width Plush Pillow 3″ wedges for literally 13 hours, and my feet didn’t hate by the day’s end. Comfy shoes are essential, so if you are already feeling some discomfort and tightness in the morning when you put on a pair, chances are it’s going to increase ten-fold, so throw a back up pair in your bag!
Summer allows for more wardrobe playfulness to be on display, and I don’t hesitate to grab bold color and amazing texture; here, I work in the smoothness of wovens via my shoe straps and pants, the softness and dimensionality of cashmere in my sweater and lace in my top, then back again to a texture by glancing at the espadrille wedge heels and beautiful almond and neon yellow geometric weaving at the base of the bag. As an added peek-a-boo color surprise, the Rebecca Minkoff bag includes a blue polka-dot print lining; trés chic!

“They’re not just shoes…they’re Aerosoles” — that may be the Aerosoles tagline, and it might sound a bit cheesy, but having shoes that are designated to provide comfort and deliver on that promise truly are life savers. I can’t even begin to count the numerous times I’ve made bad footwear decisions; I’m the queen of rationalizing, so style over comfort is a decision that I luckily haven’t had to make with this brand.
And of course, over here at Fashion Pulse Daily, we don’t talk about ANYTHING unless it is fashion-forward! Courtesy of the brand, I tried out a few of the new arrivals for spring, and picked a few more so that you can begin to craft your spring/summer footwear collection without having to have a change of flat or flip flops in your bag, in the car, or at the office. P.S.: Aerosoles features a new website, so that you can easily browse or shop online and in-store, and the footwear boasts a plush footbed, sueded lining and diamond patterned sole for protection from the ground.
Here are our top picks from Aerosoles, all coming in at under $100:
Chlose Encounter, $49 (four color options): the gladiator style has become more of a summer staple, rather than a trend, and I love that this style is a modified version of it. Plus, the zipper in the back proves to give a perfect fit and an ultra-quick way to get them on and off!
Plush Sign, $79 (available in three color options): the marriage of a traditional criss-cross strap with a casual, well-grommeted lace-up detail is perfect for a myriad of occasions in my book!
Golden Rule, $69.99-$79 (available in three color options): LOVE the sleekness of this shoe, and the obvious sturdiness of the heel. The best part though? The fashion detail, found in the contrasting (yet still versatile) black ankle strap!
Argentina, $99 (available in three color options): although these are at the higher end of the price point, we think they are WORTH it! Great with a suit, an lbd, and even super cute little lace shorts, it really is so easy to get the most out of these back-zip, stacked heel shoes.
bec 2 differ, $69 (many color choices, three new print offerings for spring): what better way to kick off the warmer months than with a fresh floral print? We envision these with a smart little capri pant in a shade of black, taupe, cream, or cool melon.
