At first glance, it would seem that My Shoe Connection only offers prom shoes, bridal shoes, and other special occasion footwear for women, men, and children. If you dig a little deeper, however, it turns out that this site also offers some fun trendy casual shoes for both warm and cold weather. I was so very surprised at the huge selection of fall and winter boots available on this site. I actually had to talk myself out of reviewing a pair of boots because a small part of me (the part that does not suffer from allergies) is looking forward to the arrival of Spring.

The shoes I selected for myself were these canvas Casual Wedges in Pink Camo. Since the huge wave of 3d flowers emerged last Spring, I have kept my eye out for a pair of warm weather shoes that I liked. Many of those sandals had a strappy and severe tribal look to them, but these are fun and flirty.
I have to admit that, while requesting these shoes, I thought to myself, "I might just sprain an ankle chasing after the children in these shoes." It turns out that these shoes are very secure. I ordered my true size, which is a 7M and they fit my foot perfectly. They actually cradle my feet, which do not slide forward or backward in the shoe while I walk. The sole is rubberized and offers great traction. The footbed is curved so that your foot rocks forward with each step. They would work great with any denim, khaki, or canvas pants, shorts and skirts, as well as with a casual dress.
Although this shoe is comfortable, there is not much cushion in them. They feel very similar to wearing a wedge-type espadrille. This is fine for anyone like me who has no problems walking around barefoot on hardwood and tile floors.
These casual wedges retail for $42.95 on My Shoe Collection. In addition to the Pink Camo, they are also available in a Grey and a Red skeleton pattern. You can view these and their entire selection of shoes, dresses, handbags, and accessories by visiting MyShoeConnection.com.
