Shoesday Tuesday: Derby Boots By Tamu McPherson

It all started at the end of October, a couple of weeks before our trip to Lisbon. The absolute and urgent need for a pair of derby boots came over me (sorry, not sorry for the drama, this is fashion after all, sigh). I insist (winking as I try to convince you with flirty eyes), I needed a cute, TRENDY flat pair of shoes in which to keep up with my husband and son as we explored the charming Portuguese city. My husband, the Lob(v)ster, is 6’2″+ and walks lightening fast. My son is following in his footsteps at the tender age of nine and currently walks faster than I do. So, as a matter of practicality, a pair of derby boots seemed like the best solution for Lisbon’s cobblestone streets and steep hills. I didn’t find that must-have pair before we left for that trip, and had to satisfy myself with a pair of trusty Stan Smiths – true classics, they did the trick as always. But my search was not over, by the time we set out for our family sports weekend in London a few weeks later, I boarded our flight with what have really become my go-to, knocking-around favorites – pictured above by Mauro Leone. My #EvaChenPose is pretty good, eh? But ever curious about what else is on offer out there, I searched out a few more styles for me and you. Find them below in the gallery. Some are very similar, but as in my case, it was a small detail like a stitch across the toe, that ultimately convinced me. What do you think? Are you a derby kind of gal? Tell me in the comments! And, don’t forget to click the images to shop these booties! xox, Tamu
