I’ve talked about Grasshoppers before. It’s the kind of brand that definitely puts comfort first. I already had their gray, Windham Stripe boat shoes and wanted to give this neutral, versatile style a try too. They resemble something in-between TOMS and those trendy slip-ons you see so much today. I also like the look of the slight wedge and the support that comes with it. For those of you with higher arches (like me), these slip-ons are for you. I thought the black color looked the cutest.
They were comfortable right out of the box. No need for any added insoles or cushioning. I’ve taken several walks in the park and survived two days of straight traveling with them on. I’m a true 7 (although I usually like to go up to a size 7 1/2 and sometimes as high as 8 1/2 in boots). These are supposed to hug your feet pretty well, so I got them in a size 7 and they were perfect. There’s also some added stretch material over the top so your feet won’t feel too snug.
The Jade is perfect for a casual day, especially if you need to do a lot of walking. Wear them with a t-shirt and your favorite high-waisted jeans (or shorts) and your set!
