Summer passes by so quickly! To take advantage of the nice weather we always try to get away and explore a few new places, whether it is a two-week trip to Europe or a Saturday night stay at the beach. When traveling, the comfortable go-anywhere outfits are always the ones I reach for. We recently came across Portovelo Shoes, and thought they were the perfect easy, comfortable summer shoe for kicking around at home or hitting the road. The classic colors red, white, navy, and grey would go just as well with a cute summer dress as with relaxed jeans. Orange soles and an orange stripe at the back bring in a playful punch of contrasting color, while the striped elastic adds a little nautical flair.
Designed to be the ideal travel shoe, Portovelos are made of flexible canvas fabric and have lightweight soles with a bit of cushioning. The company founder has visited all 7 continents, and was inspired to design the shoes with her many travels in mind. Plus, a part of the proceeds of each pair go towards an organization working to help people in need – at the moment they have partnered with Flourishing Futures in Ulan Bator, Mongolia, providing reliable meals to children living in poverty. (Partner charities are nominated by travelers who have personally experienced their work.) We love good design that does good. We have found this shoes so comfortable and cute – check them out online!
Note: I was gifted a pair of shoes for the purposes of this review, but as always, all opinions are my own.
