Amazing Shoe Collection at Shumaker #Review #Giveaway ~ Ontario 10/21

| September 26, 2016 | 37 Comments


Suitcases packed-check, passports sourced from the back of a dusty drawerchecktoddler airline survival kit assembled-check. We are all ready for our summer vacation to Portugal. We are heading off on a European adventure. Spending time with family in London before heading to the Algarve, to soak up some sun and splash around in the ocean. But before we leave, there are just a few last minute tasks to complete, and one of the most pressing is to find some new shoes for Mama. I have been sporting the ugliest pair of rubber gardening shoes for the last two years and my husband has banned them from leaving the country. My only pair of flip-flops had to be abandoned  in a  water park at the start of the summer, when the sole didn’t make it down the steps, and I was left with just the toe post wedged between my toes like some eery invisible ghost sandal. 
Luckily I was afforded the opportunity to head to Shumaker at Carlingwood Mall and check out their new line of fall shoes as well as snapping up some deals on summer clearance sandals. The store is new to Carlingwood this year but has been operating since 1948 as a manufacturer and distributor and has launched 8 stand alone locations around Ontario this year alone, including another Ottawa location at Place D’Orleans. 
Shumaker stocks quality footwear, their line of shoes, sandals, running shoes, formal and occasion shoes are meant to be worn again and again offering comfort and style for very reasonable prices.  I fell in love with a beautiful pair of moss green high heels, with delicate lattice cut flowers that snaked up the ankle. They were beautiful. Unfortunately, they were also part of the clearance section and as such were the last pair left and were slightly too big for me. I had to reluctantly leave them on the shelf. 
I moved onto a pair of sporty sandals that will work well on the beach or for a light hike. They were in an easy to coordinate light grey shade but featured punches of hot pink on the sole and inner sections. They were so light it felt as though I were barefoot, and the Velcro fastening offered practicality I am pretty sure I will live in them for a couple of summers to come! 
I also picked up a pretty pair of copper and pink toned sandals that could work well in the day with flirty little sundresses or flippy skirts for sightseeing. My third and final choice was a pair of black and snakeskin sandals, featuring a small square heel making them ideal for a night out yet they were comfortable enough to wear all day long as well. 
Shumaker also stock a full range of accessories including bags and scarves, gloves, belts and umbrellas.  The only problem is now that my shoes are so gorgeous, it makes the rest of my outfits look a bit shabby, ho hum I guess we need to go shopping again- I wonder what the stores are like in Portugal….
