Chic & Comfortable: Isaac Mizrahi Moccasins

I've struggled with knee issues since I was young and as a result, I've always had a problem wearing flats. While I'm not very tall (well quite frankly I'm minuscule at 4' 11") and love to wear heels, there are just some outfits that call for flats. For many years I was forced to purchase flats from places like Naturalizer and Aerosoles and it nearly killed me. About 2 years ago, one of my favorite designers, Isaac Mizrahi (anyone remember his show on the Style Network?? I was obsessed) created a line for QVC, which is one of my all time favorite place to shop.

I hadn't ordered anything from him when his line first came out but within a few short weeks, the QVC community was raving about his Python Embossed Leather Moccasins (at date of post $54.94). Isaac had hit the mark with this shoe...the design was classic but had all the modern technology necessary to make this flat reach the pinnacle of comfort. My shoe prayers had been answered! 


Platinum
It was my 21st Birthday so I decided to treat myself to two pairs. I ordered a pair in black and platinum. Since then, Isaac's moccasins have become my absolute favorite flat. I rarely wear anything else. I have only one other pair of flats and they're from the Coach outlet. After years, they've finally been  that broken-in but they still cause me knee pain. There is literally no break-in time with Isaac's shoes! 


Black

While the images may suggest that it is just a driving moccasin, it truly takes all different forms depending on your outfit. It can look like a ballerina flat with a dress or a boat shoe with a pair of shorts. It is by far the most transitional shoe is my wardrobe - I wear them during all seasons. For my working girls, they are absolutely a must buy. You won't need change shoes for a long walk from the bus/train to the office. 


Insole




In addition to a triple padded insole, the articulated outer sole makes every single step feel like a dream. I've walked in these while on vacation the entire day. Before Isaac came out with these, my only option is the dead of summer would be sneakers, which meant socks. My family and I typically travel to Florida...in August...enough said.

The moccasins are all leather and come in a variety of wearable colors - 10 colors to be exact (natural, bijou pink, blue azure, spearmint, platinum, black, navy, flame, gray, bordeaux). They are available in whole and half sizes, and regular and wide widths. 







My newest edition to my collection has been the navy. They were recently on sale and I couldn't pass up the bargain. What I love most about the navy is the deep color. Given that the legal profession is still very conservative, the shoes go great with a any navy-dominated outfit. I've also wore them with non-professional outfits - I styled them with a pair of skinny jeans and a navy & gray cable knit Calvin Klein sweater (Costco, $16) with a hot pink bauble necklace. By far one of my fav outfits with these shoes.
