Looking for comfort for your commute to work? There's nothing wrong with that, but girls this look below screams WRONG

As a true heel addict, I will wear shoes that, if walked any distance in, promise blisters. When it comes to work I have in the past year (it took a while to come round) began 'opting for comfort'. Now those are 3 words I would never have used when it comes to my style - until I was introduced to FitFlop in SS 2011. That's the danger with comfort, get a taste of it and suddenly your feet are telling YOU what to wear! Last week I was given a preview of FitFlops Autumn/Winter 2012 collection and they have the perfect commute to work shoe. Ironically on my way to the meeting, my eyes sorely spotted a woman rushing up Henry Street wearing a dark (skirt) suit teamed with runners. If that lady is reading this, please ditch those runners and take a look at these.....

Meet Fitflops new Ballerina style shoe - The Dué - they are a half wedge half ballet pump. With their uber-cushioned underfoot they kick the comfy runners ass and you'll agree they'll look far more fab with your smart work wear than any sporty options. The patent leather gives them a dressy finish, as well as the Hot Cherry colour shown above they also come in Inky Blue, and Black. This new style will come in a leather finish as well but personally they don't have the same appeal particularly if wearing with a skirt. Surprisingly these comfortable soles come with an affordable price tag of €99.95. They won't be available until later this month but you can pre-order. You can locate your nearest stockist here
You may not be ready to shop for winter boots but here is another new style from FitFlop that I just have to share with you. These are a boxer style boot called The Polar Sneaker. For me they are a cross between the Ugg and a High Top. They can be worn laced up (boxer style) or turned down (ugg style). The thermo-cosseting curly sheepskin lining is so soft you need to stroke it (like I did) to believe it. These come with a price tag of €179.99 which is a big reduction in price of previous FitFlop boots.
