Rockport Shoes ~ My Newest Obsession?

When I was contacted to review a pair of Rockport shoes, I was interested. Mainly because I have heard a lot of great things about the shoes – when it comes to style and fit. Yet one look at the style I was considering, and I wouldn’t have pegged them to be comfortable. Hey, I’m honest.

Yet, I was told this: “I tell you, you will love the comfort and the fact that you can wear them for whatever you have to do – you won’t have to ask yourself if you can spend all day in them or not!“.
That’s one serious statement, especially when it came to the pair I was about to test out. I introduce, the Katja Slide Woven Sandals!

Take a look at these babies. Fashionable? YES! These Katja Sandals certainly catch the attention, but I honestly would have never thought they would be feet-friendly. After all, they have 3.4″ wooden heel. And the woven upper looks rough.

The verdict? I love Rockport’s!

My viewpoint, if I can put on these beautiful and amazing shoes and be shocked that they felt GOOD – they are great shoes. The first day I wore them, I went to lunch with a friend and shopping all day long. I never felt uncomfortable once, the woven upper is very soft and hugs the feet. That is great considering I’m not used to this style of shoe at all, never mind the higher heel. And my friends’ first comment when I walked up to her? “Nice Shoes!!” I’m so happy to report that Rockport’s fully met my two criteria in order to be considered a worthy shoe. And, I think I tested out a shoe that I fully expected to not get that passing grade. A+ for the shoe and for the pleasant surprise!

Rockports have a reputation for fine cushioning, ultimate comfort, and supreme style.
You know what? It’s all true!!

The Katja Sandals I have come in 3 colors and retail for $140 – yet are currently on sale for $79.99. They can be purchased at or use this handy retailer search to find a store near you! In Canada, I see you will most likely find Rockport shoes {and accessories! Ya!} at SoftMoc, Sears and Quark’s.

And, Rockport has styles for Men as well as women, do you know a man that could use some style with comfort?

Now if you’ll excuse me – I’m off to find more Rockport shoes to add to my summer collection…
Wait though. Before I go, wanna enter to win a pair for yourself? I knew you would…

I am so not a shoe person so I don’t have many but I had a pair very similar to these, broken in to perfection, the kind of shoe that is always in style, they were 15 years old and perfect.
