these shoes were made for walking…

You'll have to wait a few more months to see the film adaptation Jack Kerouac's revolutionary novel On The Road.

But the good news is you can start dressing like Kristen Stewart's character Marylou, thanks to New Zealand-based footwear label WhyWho.   

Inspired by the mid-century "dichotomy of primly dressed adolescents hiding mysterious deeds and dark secrets underneath polo shirts, pinafores and Mary Janes," sisters Cate King and Sarah Busby's Summer collection boasts everything from trusty, leather sandals in neutral tones to strawberry suede, patchwork brogues.  But aside from the label's unique designs and unusual pairing of materials, we love these shoes most because they're actually comfortable.

Bottom line: Stop daydreaming of hitting the open road. Just go ahead and do it.
