Today I am sharing with you a review of some new shoes from Rockport. When they initially contacted me, I was hesitant, as I knew Rockport from years back when my Dad was wearing their shoes. The name conjured up some shoes that were meant for stability, cushion but not as much looks. However, times have changed, and Rockport has some wonderful shoes to choose from. The image is different and the styles are on trend with the looks of today. I was thrilled when I saw these floral flats made with their “Total Motion technology”. For me, as for I imagine many women, the appeal of comfort and style is what one looks for in a shoe. They are the Total Motion Adelyn Ballet flat.
As you know, I am very particular about shoes, as it was only 8 years ago, when I could only wear sneakers due to my Ehlers-Danlos condition. I found that I had a hard time standing in any shoes other than a tennis shoe, as I needed more support, and stability. Rockport has such stability in these shoes. They have flexibility, as well as stability as the insoles provide “thermoplatic polyurethane plates”. They have foam footbeds which provide cushioning. They also use “Sports technology” with cushioned centers to provide comfortable movement every time one steps. The rubber bottoms are also a great feature on both the heels and flats in the Total Motion collection. The Sports Technology is by Adidas and aids in heel cushioning, shock absorbtion and stability. Read more about the Technology here.
I found these floral flats comfortable from the time I put them on. In addition to my condition, I also have a high arch. The cushioned footbed aids in the fit of the shoes and they were not slipping off my foot like some shoes will do with such a high arch. I was asked to choose from 3 pairs and it was not difficult at all as I zeroed in on the floral pointed flats, as the pinks, reds and green looked so lovely and elegant. When I received the shoe, I loved that they were quite substantial, made quite well, and I looked forward to wearing them.
I can see myself wearing these flats with many looks and love that they possess the style and comfort that I seek. Today I paired them with a pink crochet pencil skirt from Ann Taylor, a monochromatic look with the same colored top, but added the classic white blazer with peach star button details for a more structured and classic look. The textured and patterned Rockport Adelyn Ballet flats were the perfect complement with this look as they added a fresh floral print for spring completing the outfit. I can see myself wearing these with perhaps a LWD ( little white dress) , a pair of boyfriend jeans for a more casual look, or dressed up as I have today.
C/O- These shoes were gifted by Rockport. My review and opinion are that of my own.
