Stranded {Footwear Edition} + $100 Etsy Gift Card Giveaway

Today I'm linking up with Shay & Erika for  STRANDED!

What 3 Footwear items would you bring if you were STRANDED on a deserted island?

 This was pretty easy for me to decide....I love SHOES. Love them.
It's embarrassing how many pairs of shoes I own, but if I were Stranded on an Island, I know just the 3 pair I would bring.

{ONE}
Flip flops!
THESE are my favorite flip flops because they are so comfortable & they last for YEARS and YEARS!
 
This is my 2nd pair of Rainbow Flip Flops. I love the braided strap detail.
If you aren't a fan of the braided strap, these one's just have a plain strap. This style was 1st pair I had....they lasted me 4 or 5 years!
This style comes in 3 colors {HERE}

 They also have Men's with thicker straps. Kevin has THESE ones:
The Men's style comes in 4 colors.

{TWO}
The 2nd pair of shoes I would bring are my UGGS. 
I LOVE MY UGGS!
I have 4 pair :)

Kevin got me these ones almost 10 years ago when I was pregnant with Kate:

I have these ones {HERE}
 I wear them all the time during winter. 
My next pair were these ones {HERE}:
 
Then a few years ago, I got these {HERE}:
 And, I also got these {HERE}

I really like these ones {HERE} because they can be tall or short.
Aren't they cute? I like the gray and the black.
I need an UGG intervention. Ha!
 I have gotten 4 pairs in the last 10 years, but they are just so cozy & don't wear out....even after 10 years....plus did you know you can get Ugg replacement insoles?
Yep! They are awesome & only $15! Get them HERE.

I figure that Uggs will be perfect for nighttime when your feet need a break from the sand. Plus, when you walk around on the sand in your Uggs, your Uggs won't get sand in them because they are taller boots. And, of course you can spray THIS water & stain protectant on your Uggs so that if they get water on them, they will be protected! 
 
 I LOVE this stuff!


 {THREE}
My running shoes, of course :)
THESE are the running shoes I have:

I have run over 250 miles on this pair of shoes, so after another 100 miles, I will need to get a new pair of shoes. I got fitted for this shoe in the Spring, so now I know what fits my running style.
The new colors of this shoe just came out, so I am deciding between THIS color:
or THIS color:

A year ago, I wouldn't have brought my running shoes, but last summer got back into running  after a 10 year hiatus (read about it HERE) and now my running shoes are part of my life...even on vacation, so I would for sure have them if I was Stranded.  We were in Tahoe last week on vacation & I went running 5 out of the 6 days we were there!
If I had my running shoes, I could go on long runs along the island to pass time :)

 So, there you have it....the 3 pairs of shoes I would want to have with me if I was Stranded!


The shoes I picked for that are different than my 3 go-to/everyday pair of shoes, so I thought I would share those also. I LOVE talking about shoes :)


 {ONE}
Since school is stating next week, my go-to shoes & favorite pair of shoes are hands down THESE flats:
THESE are the most comfortable flats I have EVER worn. 
I got them almost 2 years ago for Back to School. They feel like I am wearing slippers.
They also come in Nude:

I have the black pair, but I also have this cognac color only available HERE:


They are so worth the money, especially if you have a gift card to put toward them.
I got the tan pair a year after the black pair because I loved them so much.
 I am on my feet a ton during the school year & these flats are worn 4 times a week during the Fall and Spring.  When I am doing a lot of training & running, these flats make my feet feel like they are in heaven. LOVE them!

{TWO}
I am OBSESSED with these booties!
 They come in 2 colors....Mushroom:
 And Black:
 I have them in both colors :)
The heel isn't too tall, which is perfect for tall girls like me.
And, they are waterproof. They are SO comfortable! 
I teach in them & my feet don't hurt.
 {THREE}
These are my go-to boots for Fall & Winter
I wear them 3-4 times a week during the Fall/Winter.
They go with everything and they hold up! 
I have had mine for 2 years & they are in great shape!
Get them HERE
They are on sale right now! Save $20 & get them for under $150
They come in several colors, I have them in whiskey.
So, there you have it...my 3 pairs of shoes for being Stranded & my 3 pairs of shoes for everyday wear :)

Here are the next dates & topics for the STRANDED link up!
 You can see my 3 medicine cabinet items {HERE} & my 3 book choices {HERE} & my 3 Netflix choices {HERE}
