I love fancy shoes as much as the next fashionista, but they aren’t always practical. Like, when I’m running to the store or in a hurry I want a shoe that I can just slip into and go. It helps when they look good, like the Icebug Mist (sent for review purposes). This shoe is stylish (I love the color scheme and the cute little pixellated bug graphic) and intensely comfortable.
The Icebug Mist-L RB9X is a great solution to my athletic footwear needs. Whether I’m walking, jogging, or full on running my feet don’t bear the brunt of the impact. Is there anything worse than sore feet at the end of the day – with no one to rub them for you?!
It has done a lot of raining here in the suburbs of Chicago which means slippery walking surfaces. This was the perfect chance to confront and challenge the traction on the Icebug Mist shoe.
Well, it wasn’t much of a challenge. I didn’t slip or feel myself slipping once; even when I tried to use the grass as a slip and slide. The soles of these shoes really grip to help you stay balanced and on your feet.
I also want to mention that my feet actually stayed dry while I was performing my tests which surprised me. I thought for sure I would be left with wet socks.
Everything about these shoes screams “Buy me in more colors” and “wear me everywhere”. They are girly, but not too girly which is perfect for when you want to be noticed but not stereotyped. I can highly recommend them for hiking, working out, and running errands. I wear mine quite often and haven’t had a tired foot yet which is a nice change.
Icebug has several styles of footwear to choose from. Each pair is made with quality in mind and made to withstand the environment you wear them in. Be sure to check them out and connect with Icebug on their social media channels.

Coolway Azalea Boots
I’m a country girl; always have been always will be. I may be living in the city now but there’s a phrase that sums me up pretty well:
You can take the girl out of the country, but you can’t take the country out of the girl.
I don’t try to hide who I am, in fact I show it off whenever I can! When I start talking fast look out ’cause the bumpkin is bound to come through. I have a twang that even my friends can’t understand sometimes! With that said, let me ask y’all something. What is a country girl without a pair of cowboy boots?!
I’d like to think that even if I wasn’t a country girl I’d still be drooling over these Caliope boots from Coolway (sent for review purposes).
These boots suit me to a t. They’re flirty and sassy all while not being loud and boisterous. They are in no way over the top cowboy boots. In fact, you can remove the braided straps and pull-on loops for days when you’re just not feeling much like a cowgirl. That versatility makes these boots perfect for everyone!
Go casual or dress them up, whichever style you prefer these boots will match and enhance it.

The upper part of the boot is made with genuine, distressed leather with a soft and comfortable leather insole. The midsole is made of Polyurethane and the outsole is rubber.
The 1″ heel offers a slight lift without compromising your balance. The entire shoe fits snug while allowing your toes to wiggle freely – that’s highly important to me.
I really love the distressed look of the outsole, they really did a great job on these boots! They even offer dual-side pull-on loops to help get them on. I’ve had that issue way too many times – difficulty pulling a boot on when it doesn’t offer a side zipper opening. The loops make it effortless to slip your foot inside.
I am really loving Coolway and their amazing boots and I know you will too. You can use the store locator to find a retailer near you or you can shop Coolway boots online. They offer men and women’s footwear in several styles, colors, and sizes.
If you’re looking for a hip, urban boot then you must check out Coolway! Be sure to connect with them on social media for the latest fashions and deals.
Imagine if high tops and boots got together and had a baby. That’s what I think of when I break out these Ankle Booties (sent for review purposes) from Antelope. Not to mention these are anatomically designed to provide support and a feeling of comfort.
These ankle booties are an interesting spin on the average boot. The laces offer a visually different yet appealing style while adding extra security to your feet. If you like your boots to feel snug as a bug in a rug then just tighten the laces, or loosen them if you prefer more wiggle room.

Inside the shoe box was a dust bag which I think is great. You get these bags with mid – upper level purses to keep them in pristine condition. Why wouldn’t you want the same for your shoes?! At least I’m assuming that’s what this bag was for – I could be totally wrong but this is what I’m using it for!
I’m definitely a fan of the laced up appearance of these ankle booties. They remind me of my childhood high tops which I miss ever so much. They offered support in ways other shoes rarely do. Speaking of support, these boots have a soft, padded insole that gives you great comfort and support when you’re standing for long periods.
Usually when you’re choosing footwear you are forced to choose between leather and suede. There’s no choice with these ankle booties because you get the best of both world! That’s right, they are made with top quality, supreme leather and suede that was hand-cut. The 2 inch wedge is crafted from polyurethane with rubber outsole on the bottom.
Antelope ships free across the US and Canada so you can shop online with ease. The 753 Ankle Booties are available in black and brown and they have many other gorgeous styles as well.

When I moved to the greater Chicago area I was kind of lost. Not physically but in pretty much every other sense. It was definitely a culture shock. I’m from the country – where there are fields and woods for miles. I’m also from the quasi-south so while it gets chilly during the winter it’s rare to see 30 degree weather and below.
Chicago on the other hand – brrrr! What I’m really looking forward to is the snow. I’ve heard stories about Chicago snowfall and I’m excited, terrified, and nervous all at the same time. I’m not really sure what to expect but I do know I’ll be seeing way more snow than I ever did in Virginia or Carolina.
The thing with snow though is it melts. Not only does it melt but it leaves puddles and you know what puddles lead to – wet feet. I don’t place a lot of stock in Old Wive’s Tales and I know there’s a lot of controversy on the correlation between wet feet and getting sick but I’d rather be safe than sorry. That’s why I’m super excited to have a secret weapon in my fashion arsenal.
These weatherproof boots from dav
As you can see these aren’t your typical, ho-hum rainboots (I received these boots for review purposes.) They’re incredibly cute and ohmygosh comfortable. I’m patiently waiting for a flood so I can really test them out! In the meantime I’m settling for wearing them around town because they go with all of my night-out outfits!
I’m sure you’re wanting more details on these boots so here’s the skinny:
- The boot has a soft fabric lining and cushioned insole for all day comfort.
- They are waterproof to the top of the boot and the soft fabric lining wicks away moisture – no wet feet for you!
- They are lightweight and able to roll up to fit in your carry on luggage.
- They feature a textured rubber outsole for good traction, reducing the chance you’ll slip and/or fall.
The only downside I’ve seen to these boots is that they tend to run small. I went a half-size up (I wear a 9.5 usually so I went with a 10) and they fit perfectly! From reading reviews on various sites others have noticed the same thing so when you’re ordering your pair be sure to size up!
Speaking of ordering, you can shop directly from the dav website! If you’re looking for a different style to keep your piggies dry there are tons of fashion friendly options to choose from. Most boots are available in sizes (US) 5 – 11 and their fall line is full of winners.
