The big game is around the corner and to celebrate we came up with a pretty sweet idea on our morning show: Jonny, Holly & Nira 94.5 Virgin Radio. Why not incorporate our love of shoes?! Sounds perfect to me! Listen up on air this week (Jan 28 – Feb 1) as I quiz you with a ‘Nira Shoe Clue’ for a chance to win a $150 Gift Card to buy your very own pair of shoes from one of my favourite shopping destinations: Park Royal!
Of course it was only fitting for me to do some much needed research for this project and pay a visit to Park Royal in West Vancouver to pick out some of my favourites shoes this season, take a look.
PS – Happy Shopping!
Dallas Shiny Boots
A bootie is a must have, it can save you in almost any situation especially if you have an on the go lifestyle like myself! Jeans, shorts, dresses, tights you name it, a bootie can complete the outfit. I gravitated towards these L’Intervalle Dallas Shiny Boots because of the angled heel which gave it an original flair, plus the stainless steel detail at the toe was a major added bonus!
Pearly Lace Sneakers
With work and being a mom of three I’m constantly in and out of the house: from work, to school pickups, to play dates, to soccer, to hockey, to art class, to groceries, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg, haha. You may not be surprised if I tell you that slip-ons are my best friend. Seriously, the time you save is impeccable and to find a stylish, cute and comfortable slip on is an ultimate score. Let me introduce you Simons Pearly Lace Sneakers. It was honestly love at first sight and the creamy pearls had me at hello!
I do love to make a statement and a metallic statement is a ‘winning’ moment at all times in my book. Finding a metallic sneaker at this time of the year is the perfect way to transition to spring. Life can feel a bit scheduled and to some degree a little mundane at times, but a metallic sneaker with jeans and joggers always adds a little pep to my step. These Jaysen street sneakers are not only the perfect shade of subtle sass, but also the perfect shade of comfortable.
Nike Women’s Air Zoom Pegasus 35
One of the things that I’m trying to focus on is balance, it’s a lot harder than it sounds! One way to find balance is to give my health more of a priority with the goal of working out a minimum of two times a week. May not sound like a lot to some of you, but hey, we all need to start somewhere! I usually hit the gym right after work, which means I need to get into my gear starting at 4am. In that case I need comfort and I need fun, cue the Nike Women’s Air Zoom Pegasus 35. These are comfortable, they are mesh for circulation and breathability factors and you guessed it, the metallic gold is a no brainer for why this running shoe is my choice.
Many believe that December is the month of glitter and shimmer, that is true, but don’t be fooled, the party doesn’t stop there! The mixers, fundraisers, charity luncheons and galas continue. The little black dress is always a staple, but why not make your shoes the ultimate accessory? Perhaps even the envy of the event. If you need a pair of party heels that can add the twinkle to your toes, look no further, hello Trinity Sandals by Michael Kors.
