If you want to look stylish, but don’t want to chase your kids in 4-inch platform heels, then Tsubo shoes may be the hip solution to your footwear needs. Tsubo (pronounced SOO-bo) is the Japanese word for “pressure point” and the company promises to “relieve the pressure of life in the city.” The company’s two designers, who spent time at Reebok and Puma, have created shoes with rubber bubbles and layers of cushion – think running shoes in disguise!This modern, 2 3/4″ wedge cradles your foot, while giving you height. It comes in almond, black, and brown.
My (always perfectly styled) friend Sue swears that Tsubo’s Acrea shoes are one of the most comfortable pairs she owns. These cute pseudo-Mary Jane’s go great with jeans or a dress and come in black, chartreuse, or camel.
These ultra-modern ballet flats have extra cushioning, perforated air holes, and a removable footbed – perfect for those days that are chock-a-block with errands. For shoes that combine comfort and urban street chic, Tsubo is a step in the right direction.
