Target Shoe Haul (Spring 2015)

April 2015 058Today I am going to talk about my February-April Target Shoe Haul. I am trying something new this year. I have decided to branch out of my Merrell only shoes and try something different. I still have my favorite pairs of Merrell shoes and I will always be a loyal customer but it was just time to branch out and get a few more choices for 2015.

I do know that I have purchased more pairs of shoes than anyone really needs and I do have to admit I have several other pairs of shoes as well that won’t be discussed in this post due to the fact that they were purchased in 2014. I try to rationalize the amount of shoes I have purchased because they were so inexpensive compared to the shoes I usually purchase. So…let’s get on with the review.

First up is this pair of Women’s C9 by Champion Cala Slide Sandals from Target. They are comparable to the Nike and Adidas brand shoes I have purchased in the past for a lot more money. I got these shoes on sale for about $13 from Target. I find these very comfortable and the material does not itch or rub on the tops of my feet. They are very soft and comfortable and fit true to size. For the price…what do you have to lose?

April 2015 069These next two pairs are from Target Women’s Mossimo Supply Co. Dedra Woven Elastic Slip-on. They are so comfortable. The shoe is stretchy and so comfortable. I did go up a half size in these shoes, but I wouldn’t have had to. I have had several people comment on these shoes and have gone out to purchase their own! These are comparable to high-end designer shoes for a whole lot less money. I purchased the black pair and went back to purchase the bronze pair.

April 2015 063The bronze pair I wasn’t so sure they were going to go with my clothes and to my surprise, they matched perfectly! Sometimes shoes just look better on and more so when you have a complete outfit just needing the right pair of shoes. AND…these shoes made the outfit!

April 2015 066April 2015 064Ok…now things are about to get crazy. I went to Target to purchase the Women’s Dianne Cap Toe Espadrille Flat in the cream colored shoes with the black tips after seeing them in the Target flyer. They resemble a high-end designer again…at a whole lot less money. So…I rationalized that I could get three pairs and still be ahead financially. I read the reviews and they were mixed. So I first went and purchased the cream pair without trying them on. Bad decision on my part…I needed to go up a size. So I gave my daughter that pair and went back to Target to pick up a size bigger. I absolutely loved how they looked and how comfortable they were. My pair has held up beautifully but unfortunately the pair my daughter got has failed. They started to come apart at the sole.

April 2015 065But since I had such great luck with the pair I received, I went back to Target and picked up the black on black pair and the leopard black pairs. I figured that even if these shoes didn’t last past this season…it didn’t matter because I had saved a lot of money and I was able to get three pairs so I could hopefully make these last longer. Well…the cream and the leopard print shoes have held up beautifully, but I have yet to wear the black pair as you can see in the picture above. After all is said and done, I would still recommend these shoes. I love to have the look of high end for less money. Mossimo has done it again…I just love this brand at Target. It just fits!

April 2015 067 April 2015 068Then I saw these knockoff Converse style shoe in various colors. Women’s Lenia Sneakers by Mossimo Supply what a throwback…I just had to take these babies home. They would look so cute with skinny jeans…ha, that is hilarious…I don’t have skinny jeans! I am planning on wearing these with some cropped jeans and some capris. Nothing against skinny jeans…but that is not a style that I can pull off.

So I purchased the black and the grey because I wear those colors a lot. I have only worn the black pair so far…but they are surprisingly comfortable for a flat shoe. I wore them to work and they felt so good that I couldn’t really tell that I was wearing shoes! And they were so cute with my cropped jeans. Love them!

By now you have to be asking yourself…how many more pairs of shoes does she have? Did she buy these all in one trip? Well I only have a few pairs left to review and no…these weren’t all purchased at the same time. All of these shoes were purchased from the end of February through the beginning of April.

The next shoes are Birkenstock look-a-likes. I love these! They are so comfortable and I love that the price didn’t break the bank. I had one concern and that was regarding the fit. Would these fit my narrow feet? Would they fit my friend’s feet as she has wide feet? AND…we both can wear these shoes! It is like the “Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants”…did I just age myself there? Anyway, these shoes are Women‘s Bailey Two Buckle Footbed Sandals by Mossimo Supply. I purchased the white pair and the Cognac shoes. They are very comfortable as well. I have been unable to wear these yet, as for some reason, the Midwest is having some crazy weather this year and I haven’t had the chance.

April 2015 073 April 2015 075These two pairs of shoes I scored for a heck of a deal on clearance. They are the Chandra Scuff Slipper in the Chestnut and Grey colors. I purchased these because they were on clearance. They looked comfortable and they felt comfortable so what did I have to lose, right? I absolutely love them! I wear them almost everyday. I have two dogs that I take out and just walking around the yard in the Midwest, my feet definitely welcomed these cozy warm shoes. For the price I paid for them, I am happy. I do have a pair of Bobs slipper shoes that I already enjoyed and they fit slightly better on my feet. These are a little looser fitting, but I could possibly have gotten too large of a size for me feet. I am very happy with these slipper shoes and they have held up amazingly.

April 2015 072Alright…one last pair of shoes from Target. They are the Women’s Caged Rylee Heel in Cognac. I have yet to try these babies out, but I am really looking forward to it. I tried them on with boot cut jeans and cropped jeans. They look amazing and sexy. I bet if you wore boyfriend jeans and/or skinny jeans, these shoes would totally add that edge. They are high heel shoes, but as I am 6 feet tall, I bought them anyway. Sometimes a girl just needs to embrace her height and buy a pair of heels! I love that these shoes were inexpensive and the material feels great on the feet. The edge of the shoes does not bother or rub my ankles or toes. That was my only concern…I am getting ready to bust these babies out and give them a whirl.

All of these shoes I purchased on sale or on clearance. I am very happy with these shoes. I just love Target and thought I would share the love…my new found love for their shoe line this season.  Why not give them a try? I did…and I am so glad I did!

The best part is…if you have a RED Card (either Debit or Credit)…you always receive 5% off on top of any sales and you receive FREE shipping! So worth it.  Target RED Card
