The Find: Linea Paolo Shoes

When I was an intern, I bought myself a pair of Linea Paolo heels at the Nordstrom half-yearly sale.  They were so comfortable that I could give Capitol tours in high heels.  I could walk home from work and save money on Metro.  I could even stand in them at a cheap-wine fundraiser for hours.  Then, one day, I stepped onto a cobblestone street and snapped the heel in two.

I tried replacing, but the brand had disappeared.  It was no longer carried at Nordstrom.  It had basically fallen off the map until two years ago, when I saw pairs popping up at a few retailers.  So I snapped up a pair from Amazon, and I’m so glad I did.

Amazon has a great selection of Linea Paolo pieces, as does Nordstrom.  These Bellini low-heels are so great.  They look awesome with jeans or trousers and they are very comfortable after just one or two wears.  They come in seven colors (shocking that I chose the leopard).

I also like the look of these simple Linea Paolo loafers and the cool details on these black booties.  They make a great shoe in the sub-$150 price point.  If you haven’t tried the brand before, give them a look.

    Oh my goodness, I had a pair of Linea Paolo black heels when I was in DC and loved them to pieces. So much so that they sadly go worn to death. I never replaced because I couldn’t find them again. I will go looking now and see what I can find!

    How is sizing on these? Should I go up a half size in the pointy flat?

      I’m an 8.5, I bought an 8.5. But in a higher heel, I sometimes go 9.

      I have a pair of flats and a pair of hella from this brand. I generally wear a 10 in pointy flats and either a 9.5 or 10 in heels, and I find the size 10 comfortable for both.

        *hella = heels. I honestly don’t know where autocorrect gets these things… Is it 2001?

    So I am dying to start wearing loafers, mainly because they look so comfy, but I have absolutely no idea how to wear them. Can they be worn with skirts or dresses? Only jeans and pants? If so, what cuts and what lengths?

    I’m totally loafer-clueless. Please send help!

    Nordstrom currently carries this brand!

    I first stumbled across it earlier this year when I was just browsing and HAD to have these purple pumps (https://shop.nordstrom.com/s/linea-paolo-pia-pump-women/5003068). They are so surprisingly comfortably and pretty…I was hooked immediately. I also have these flats in pale pink (https://shop.nordstrom.com/s/linea-paolo-belinda-flat-women/5172911).

    Has anyone tried the Peggy midheight version? I can’t tell if the pitch of the heel seems odd? Thanks for the recommendations, I’m excited to check these out!
