The Perfect Summer Shoe

During my trip to San Diego in April, I got a sneak peek at the goods for a new online shop, Painted Bird. Nicole, the shop owner, discovered these colorful crocheted shoes from India. Once she felt how comfortable they were, she bought several more pairs. Together, she and her shop partner Jen have made it possible for everyone to own these cute shoes.

I’ve seen them in person, and trust me, they’re as awesome as they look online. And with so many colors, they’re bound to have one that you fall head over very heels in love with.

Their online shop just opened, so get over there and check them out!
