Expanding on those advancements, Geox introduces it’s new groundbreaking technology, Amphibiox, the new generation waterproof line.

Styles like the super feminine Cleopatra T-Strap in (available in nappa suede and brushed leather), the luxe breathable and waterproof D Lola Ballet Flat and more trendy silhouettes like the cool, quilted Geobuck patent leather Winter Club Sneaker to the boldly colored Nubuck leather oxford and sneaker wedges are some of my favorites.

Sorel Footwear Fall 2012 Women’s Collection

Normally I’m not a fan of thunderstorms, except if I’m at home under the covers enjoying a lazy day. Of course this was a different story when I was a little girl, I loved to play in the rain then. Today, the river-sized puddles we get in NYC are not a favorite of mine. It always seems that no matter how far you leap over it, you still get wet feet but thanks to Sorel Footwear that has changed. I’m transported back to being a little girl jumping into the rain puddles. Try as they may, most rain boots are not high on the fashion footwear list – don’t get me wrong, there are some interesting prints and some brands have certainly made statements but as someone who loves her heels – I was always hoping for a more fashion-friendly pair of rain boots – one I can wear without clunking around. I found found my answer in the Sorel Footwear Medina Rain Heels – yes a real heel – 4” heel with 1” platform to be exact.

While this baby is a very fashionable rain boot, it’s all business – it’s vulcanized rubber provides a waterproof foot environment and a felt lined collar increases comfort so you stay dry, warm and protected in cold, wet weather conditions.

The Medina Boot is not all Sorel Footwear wows us with for Fall. The Slimpack Riding Boot is Sorel’s lightest, most sleek Pac boot yet, offering the timeless style of an equestrian riding boot with incredible function and comfort.

With this boot, Sorel has integrated waterproof warmth into the timeless silhouette of an equestrian riding boot to deliver a winter weather solution that will keep you dry and protected in cold conditions without sacrificing style. Another great boot is a bit more classic Sorel style. Inspired by Sorel’s iconic Men’s Conquest boot, the Women’s Conquest Carly is the sophisticated sister.

Lightweight and cozy, this insulated boot features a full-grain leather and nylon upper, rubber shell, bungee and lace closure and stacked leather heel to ensure that feet stay dry, warm and protected during everyday adventures in winter conditions.

I know my favorite, which one is yours?

Aerosoles Supports The Women’s HIV/Aids Collaborative of NY

Few people know this but in high school I used to be a peer educator on HIV/Aids. I was in charge of the condom presentation; my presentation board had an array of condoms – colored, flavored, etc but I’m getting off topic here.Anyway, as I was saying, not many know that I was a peer educator, but many know my love, ok lust, alright obsession with shoes. So when this event came up, you know I had to attend.

Aerosoles-in-Store-HIV-Event

The event hosted by Aerosoles on 5th Ave between 21st & 22nd. Zia*, Angelique* and I were going to attend but at the last minute Angelique*, who had to work a little later decided not to attend at the last minute. So Zia* and I walk into a crowd of women shopping like crazy in the small boutique. Although it started at 5 pm, and we got there at around 5:45 pm or 6 pm and there was already a long line at the register (I guess the economy isn’t THAT bad), but everyone really got some great savings. First you get 15% off your first purchase, 25% off all boots and if you bought two pairs of shoes, you get an additional 20% off your second pair of shoes. With savings like this, I guess horde as many shoes as your cash or credit flow will allow.

Anyway, although Aerosoles isn’t exactly my cup of tea (what? 1-inch heels? I’m sorry I don’t speak that language). Zia*, on the other hand, was in heaven, she practically has an Aerosoles collection growing in her closet, I did manage to find some cute shoes, though.

Zia*, on the other hand, got two pairs to add to her collection. Usually, the girl likes color as much as a vampire likes sunlight but she did take home colors way out of her comfort zone (which is black, brown, tan or gray).

She got the silver in the above style, she really wanted the gold, which shocked the hell out of me, but they didn’t have her size. She also got these in PURPLE!!

Of course, she took those home on a trial basis. Like I said a vampire to sunlight. For all I know, they may go right back to the store tomorrow. Anyway, more shopping happened around us. I must add that this woman (in the black jacket) also purchased the silver ballet flats when she saw them on Zia*.

We also ran into a new friend of ours, Amanda, who I met at the PUMA event (she invited us to the book launch for Slim Satisfied and Sexy) and she left with two pairs of boots. I’m not showing her face because I didn’t ask her permission but here she is with her two pairs of shoes

Anyway, I didn’t forget the main purpose of the event, which is to bring awareness to the Women’s HIV Collaborative

 

Aerosoles-in-Store-HIV-Event9

I’m not sure what percentage of tonight’s proceeds went to the Women’s HIV Collaborative but from the amount of shopping done tonight, it will be a good amount. Although I didn’t buy any shoes from Aerosoles tonight (I”m saving for a big upcoming trip), I did order some very cute boots and they came today….YEAHHH!!! Here they are (I am not saying the brand because I don’t want to see these everywhere, especially since I want a chance to wear them properly first)

Aerosoles-in-Store-HIV-Event10

 

As an extra reward, all attendees got a 15% off Lifetime coupon to Aerosoles. Zia* has one and so does Angelique* (we took one for her), so if anyone wants mine, let me know.

On the way out we ran into Kim on her way to the event. The three of us talked for a while (me mostly complaining that I’m not yet well known in the blog world to get an invitation to the Robin Thicke Album release party tonight………oh poo).

That is all, until the next event tomorrow.
