Stalk Her Style - Sport Luxe without looking too sporty

Sport Luxe featuring Scholl Orthaheel


I'm sure you'll recall me regaling you with tales of my unhappy feet?  They are still in the throes of plantar fasciitis and frequent trips to my physio aren't the only thing I'm having to do.

But "Shoes, glorious shoes!"  Who doesn't love a new pair of shoes?  You can rely on them giving you that shopping high even if you're not feeling your most svelte or glamorous.  A great pair of shoes has the power to make your day just perfect.

Unfortunatley, when you're in constant pain, shoes are not your best friend.  At least, they're not if you just grab a pair from your closet and expect them to support your flat feet all day.

Since the onset of plantar fasciitis I've been reduced to wearing sneakers all the time.  They're nice sneakers (New Balance with lots of arch support and heel cushioning) but they're not very, um, me. They are perfect for the gym (which is my new obsession) but for trying to rock them in a "sport luxe" way - not so much.

And then the nice people at Scholl offered me a life line, telling me about their range of Orthaheel shoes, which are all available to buy at selected locations around Australia.

Scholl kindly offered me a pair to try and I chose the Rhyme leisure shoe in Dark Tan.  The rhyme is the perfect shoe for wearing on those busy days.  It looks great with jeans and rather cute with a denim skirt.  Here I'm wearing my Rhymes with leather look leggings from Moss Clothing, an oversized tee from Sussan, and a kaftan from Katies.

The Rhyme leather and suede sneaker is ortho-friendly, which means when I finally go down that route (putting it off, no idea why), I can just velcro those bad boys into my Rhymes.  They come fitted with a pair of 3/4 footbeds which featured the Orthoheel profile anyway, so they're supremely comfortable.

I wore these all day yesterday and was on my feet a lot (this isn't advisable for anyone with PF, but really, who's got time to sit down all day?). A coffee with the girls saw me taking off my shoe and handing it round the table, such was the interest in my new Rhymes.  It turned out that out of the 4 girls for coffee, 2 of us had PF, one wore orthotics already and the other just liked the look of the sneakers!

They are the perfect shoe for when you want the comfort of a sneaker but you don't want to look like you've been to the gym.

So, I've started a new obsession - shoes that are comfortable.  I never thought I'd say that, but needs must!  Scholl have a wide range of shoes built for comfort, and you can see their range here.

If you've posted about personal style this week, we want to see it.  Link up below and share the love.

  1. I really need to start thinking more about comfort. Glad to know it doesn't mean cutting on the style.

    1. Honestly I've had so many great comments about these shoes. I'm hoping to feature some other brands that are foot-friendly, too, over the coming months.

  2. Now that's a smart sneaker. Definitely not getting any gym vibes from those!

    1. Yep, it's amazing how much we take our feet for granted isn't it?
