I am coming out, it’s true I am having a true affair, one that is hand-laced, and one that has completely wrapped me up, you know kind of obsessive-like. My affair is based on stability and I gotta say, loads of cushion room, with flexibility that lasts day after day to support me every step of the way. Oh silly you, did you think I was having a real affair did you? My love affair is with SAS Shoes! It’s a new day and time for a new outfit and with any good outfit comes a pair of shoes! I am insanely shoe-crazed and I simply can’t express my affection for a soft, creamy leather, that just blends in with my feet, while providing comfort that lasts the day long. I believe that there are not enough hours in a day to wear all the shoes that I love, but there are plenty of shoes at SAS Shoes that are flattering, feminine, fashionable and so very comfortable. This is my story of lavishly living my shoe obsessions out loud, and sharing with you the Definition of an SAS Shoe.
Brands are not easily defined, some get distracted and try too much, and often just when a brand is getting good it goes the other way. When the founders of the SAS company set down their beliefs and values in how to craft a quality shoe, they were determined to drive a straight and steady path, keeping the shoes they created from their brand, comfortable, dapper, easy-to-maintain, ergonomically correct and quality driven. To this day, the same shoes premises that started years ago, still exists and is the reason why SAS brand is a leading brand in dependable, sassy, yet fashionable, hand-crafted footwear. This is not a story about a bargain shoe, this is about a shoe that bargains your foot begging it to be worn, day after day because the comfort of the shoe is superior to any brand out there!
Meet my Penny J
Penny J is this fantastic classic shoe, that is foot-friendly, fashionable an so exciting to pair up with Fall and Winter Fashion. Penny J’s online description is as follows: “Hand-laced moccasin construction wraps soft leather completely around the foot. Wide sole base for increased stability and a lightweight sole for cushions each step.”
My definition of the Penny J is a flexible shoe that offers a balance of stability, style and support while actually being a staple of any wardrobe as it is dependable and easy to match. Do you know that moccasin construction means?
Definition of an SAS Shoe
Let’s take a look at the SAS so that I can offer you an in-depth description showing the depth of love, quality and care put into this shoe and why it exceeds any shoes that I have put on my feet to date.
Peel away the insole of the shoe and suddenly you have the beginning of what makes the SAS Brand so innovative and so quality-driven. What you will see on the insole of the shoe is a shoe the leather wrapping around the front part of the shoe which means that the soft leather completely encompasses your foot.
This is so important in the feel of this shoe and all the SAS products because it makes it more flexible and so much softer around the ball of the foot(think aches and pains of the day from spending time in shoes).
Getting Green and Cushy With Penny J
Take a look inside of this shoe, again, under the insole(lots of good stuff under there!), and you will see a green cushy section, which adds that extra cushioning the balls of my feet need. Seriously, once I leave the house for the day, I am not changing clothes, I am dressed and the shoes feel so delightful, I could say that they are like walking on air, but that is so cliche. Rather, I will tell you that this is part of the Tri-Pad comfort system, which means there is extra cushion to the inside ball of the foot, the outside ball and my heel! Boo-yah, engineered, shock-absorbing, reliable and so top-of-the-line I just can’t say enough!
Heel Of A Penny J Without Insole In It
Now take a look at the back of the shoe, again the insole of the shoe, and you will see that the hard section in the back part of the shoe which was done purposefully in order to add support to the heel.
Want to know what 2 needles and thread can do for a shoe? SAS knows and instills it into every pair of shoes that they create. An actual person, not a machine actually takes 2 needles and thread and attaches the VAMP(where the top of the shoe cover meets your toes) to the shoe, and this technique is an art form that can take years to master, so only the best of hand-lace the shoes you see and buy from SAS.
Finally, as you look at the outside of these outstanding, designer, most dapper looking shoes, you might notice elastic ‘gore’ on each side of the shoe.
What is this ‘gore’ stuff? Your foot is flexible and that challenge must be met from both the inside and the out, and I have shown you the flexibility from leather on the inside, now see what ‘GORE’ does for the outside. The Elastic Gore provides a little GIVE on each side of the shoe, so your toes are not squashed rather comfortable. Additionally, you don’t want to lose your shoes, so, the GORE helps your shoes stay on your feet so that you can look Sassy all long!
Clearly you can see the color is black patent and trimmed in a red rouge. The color is brilliant red, and it is elegant and stylish. Pairing this up with ankle crops as I did, also allows for you to add a dash of red elsewhere in the clothing of choice. I am not going to tell you how to dress, we all see shoes differently, but I am going to tell you these are a staple of any good wardrobe.
Now just to tease you all, and really that is about all I can do with this marvelous shoe I am about to share with you, may I present the The Pink Catalina shoes.
These are mine and they are featured in the limited edition color, Taffy. I have to tell you that there are only a limited number of these for everyone, so if you miss your chance on this, you miss!
I was not going to miss out on Pink Shoes that are Boat Shoes(my Fav!). The sparkle, the durability, all add to the foot-friendly savviness that comes together in this shoe! You bet there is sparkle on this shoe, and that was one of the things I loved about the style and color– Taffy! The ties are authentic, and comfortable to handle, and more importantly they stay-tied! The insides are crafted with quality just like my Penny J and I live inside of these!
The sparkle on this shoe is not just on the back of heel area, but the side of the shoe sole also has glitter built right on in.
As I am the queen of pink, and have declared my eternal love to this brand of shoes, it is only fitting that I chose this pair. In all seriousness, love the shoes, but the shoe was crafted to bring about recognition of “Go Pink”. Comfort abounds shoe wall to shoe wall in this kickie boat shoe that lets me celebrate my pink pride this October for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Find out all the details on how you can help raise awareness for National Breast Cancer Month on the SAS site while you are scurrying to see if you can find your size before everyone beats you to it!
Shoes are such an important part of any outfit, in fact, I believe shoes create the outfit and I often build from the bottom up, giving myself a new sense of style each time I pull an outfit together. My craving for one-of-a-kind fashion, hand-crafted, durable, yet trendy shoes has led me to what I believe is the greatest find of my life, SAS. My journey begins each day when I step into my shoes and hopefully it will never end. The selection is vast, the options endless and as I say, “so many shoes, and so little time!” Lavishly live exquisite craftsmanship and the definition of an SAS Shoe out loud! Take a look at the foot-friendly chic shoes that SAS offers and you will see why I am so bias. What do you look for in a pair of shoes?
