Sam Edelman Dora Slingback Pumps

The Shoes I Wear Every Single Weekend

Honestly, is there anything more challenging than finding a good pair of going-out shoes that aren’t killing your feet by the night’s end?

A quick but insightful post today, inspired by all of my girlfriends who ask me every single time I wear these shoes where I got them… And you won’t believe the cost.

Here’s the deal:

They’re point-toe slingbacks by Sam Edelman — classic, sophisticated and sexy without being over-the-top. They come in a shitload of colors, too.

The 4″ heel is very walk-able (dance-all-night-able), and the strap is adjustable so you can adjust it to fit your feet. They’re perfect for both work and weekends, honestly. Plus, they just went on sale, so it seemed like the perfect opportunity to share with you!

I have the “Nude Patent” (Caramel Nude is the closest match) and “Black Patent,” and  yes, I wear them ever single weekend — with jeans, dresses, skirts, you name it. I also like the suede red pair — and the leopard-print pair is super-sleek, too.

… How many pairs is too many, you think?

Sam Edelman, on sale for $65 here in 9 colors (+ extra 10% off)
Lord and Taylor, on sale for $47 in snakeskin print


Zappos’s sister discount site,, also has a variety of similar styles in-stock, but they don’t tell you when a size is sold out (even if it’s listed on the site), which is annoying.

Lastly, one thing to note: If you shop these on Sam Edelman’s website, you will get an extra 10% off with e-mail sign-up. Score!

Happy shoe shopping, my friends. Is it Friday yet?
