Katy writes: Oh, Outblush. How did I ever shop before you? (Mostly unsuccessfully, if I recall...) Here's my current quest: a pair of chunky, platform-y sandals like these great Dansko ones but non-leather.
- I wear a size 7.5 shoe
- I'm willing to pay up to $150-ish for a well-made pair
- no deadline - the Boston weather is taking its sweet time getting warm, so it'll be a while before I can parade my tootsies out in the open.
- as for color, I don't have much of a preference, as long as it's nothing too outlandish like neon pink or highlighter yellow
- preferably nothing higher than a 2" heel, but I can handle up to 3" if they're platform
- they need to be vegan and have that funky-grandma vibe like Dansko/Hasbeens/Dr. Scholls
Your shopping kung fu is strong, and if you manage to find sandals for me, I will proclaim your superiority to all.
Thanks so much for the help!
