Amber at #YSHQ is getting married! Read the proposal story of one of our favorite sales team girls below!
Backstory: Amber and her fiance Yoni go way back to 2010 when they lived in the same building on the UWS. After almost a year of passing by each other in the elevator and at the gym, Yoni asked the doorman about Amber, and unfortunately discovered she was moving out! He got the doorman to put in a good word for him, and the doorman got Amber to leave her number at the front desk. The rest is history!
"We were together 4 years. We had talked about marriage but I was never pressuring him and we never felt in a rush. I had no idea he had picked out a ring. He had been hiding it in our apartment. I was shocked when he proposed! I was out with coworkers for happy hour and he told me to come meet his friends. I begrudgingly went not wanting to leave my friends to meet him at Grand Banks. He came and met me toward the west side highway and we starting walking toward the boat. All of a sudden he got down on one knee and...boom! He had photographer friend there to capture it all."
"So the spot was that pier but it has an incredible view. A few years back, we were playing mini golf there and sitting on a bench and it was where we first said "I love you" to each other. He had actually carved it in a bench that day. So the day he proposed he carved WYMM in the bench (Will You Marry Me). So he proposed in the spot where we first said I love you but totally tricked me into going there because I thought I was just going to that bar!"
"We proceeded to get drinks at the bar where our first date was and I called everyone I knew."
Stay tuned for more about Amber's wedding and her bridal Foldable Flats in a post coming soon!

Yosi's daughter, Sadie, was so excited to share her favorite shoes with us in this special blog post! See the shoes she selected below plus a little Q&A we did with Yosi.
Does Sadie love wearing her #YSKids flats?
When she tried them on for the first time she enjoyed running around in them it was really exciting when she was able to wear them. I was like "finally my baby in YS!"
#YSFlats hanging above Sadie's changing table. Super cute, right?!
What inspired you to make kids flats after you started women's?
Watching friend's daughters trying on their mom's flats and slipping their feet in these oversized shoes for them really inspired me. It was really fun and easy. Kids really enjoy the ease of just slipping them on.

You're my go to, my number one choice.

You get pedicures with me, travel to the beach with me - we spend the entire summer together. I always pack you in my bag for my warm weekend getaways.
I get so sad when the leaves change and you're no longer in my life for the next few seasons.
I take you for granted. From day to night, sunshine to rain, for work & for play, you're still there, waiting for me to wear you day after day.
Thank you being you, Roee. I'll celebrate you today by loving you a little extra!

Once upon a time there was a woman and a man who fell in love. The man proposed to the woman, the woman said yes, and they set off on planning the fairytale wedding of their dreams...
This story has been told since the beginning of time - the quintessential love tale of a prince and a princess, falling in love and building a life together. Only this version tells more than just the story of love, it tells the story of something new for brides everywhere - an innovation in the wedding experience itself, and it was all because of the love one man had for one woman.
That man was Eric Samra, brother of Yosi Samra, and that woman was Robin.
Robin dreamt about a magical wedding nothing short of a perfect. She pictured every single detail, from the texture of the floral arrangements, to the feeling of the fabric of her gown. She traveled all the way to Israel to seek out a premiere designer who would craft her a picturesque wedding gown befitting a queen.
After securing the dress, she embarked on another adventure to find shoes to match her unique, Israeli wedding gown. In the midst of trying on hundreds of different styles of heels, Robin realized something:
While a fabulous pair of heels is a necessity for every bride, she also needed a pair of shoes that were both beautiful AND comfortable for pre-wedding and post-wedding wear. "I wanted shoes that I could wear when getting dolled up and also slip into once the dancing began. I knew an old pair of flip flops or hotel slippers would look terrible in pictures and take away from me feeling like royalty on my big day." When she couldn't find any shoes that would work, she asked Yosi, her brother- to-be, to design her a pair of Bridal Flats that would both stun her guests and save her feet.
The Robin was created simply as a gift from Yosi to his future sister, to add to her perfect wedding experience. Little did he know that was creating the first ever Foldable Bridal Flat - a new wedding accessory that would soon be the savior of bride's feet all around the world.
Robin’s dream wedding and one-of-a-kind flats were so beyond compare that the secret needed to be shared with everyone. A table in the main area of the reception was laid out and piled high with YS flats so ladies could take off their heels and put on comfortable shoes for dancing. In the center were pairs of The Robin, beautifully displayed so everyone could see.
That evening, Yosi and his team decided to post a photo of the shoes on Instagram to show off Robin's big day and see what YS girls thought of the new flats. Within minutes of posting to Instagram, the picture was flooded with likes and comments asking where people could buy these flats, with dozens of brides-to-be stating they had been searching for shoes just like The Robin!
That's when Yosi knew he had stumbled across something truly great.
Little did Robin know that her reluctance to wear any old shoes for her pre and post-wedding experiences, would unfold into the discovery of something that every bride needs:
Elegant, comfortable shoes to perfect her wedding wardrobe, and save her feet for the biggest night of dancing of her entire life.
"The greatest ideas always stem from love."

This mommy-to-be is loving our Samara flats. She styled hers with a pretty pink lace dress for Mother's Day, but mentioned she plans to re-wear this look post-baby. Check out what she said below!
"Also, I’ve been living in Yosi Samra flats these days. They are honestly so comfortable & I keep a pair in my diaper bag at all times because (especially lately) I’ve found myself wanting to take off my shoes halfway through the day. These are the perfect shoes for comfort & I always get so many compliments on them that it’s a complete win-win in my opinion!" -Sheradin Gregory

We're obsessing over this mom-on-the-go's latest look. Amber paired her Yosi's with ripped skinny jeans, a striped tee and an adorable pretzel bag - perfect for a day at the park with the kiddies!
"Usually anytime I know we are going to be walking a lot I wear these Yosi Samra flats because they are so comfy and have been my favorite city flats for YEARS! I have about 20 pairs of them and have gotten pairs for all of my friends, sisters, and my mom because I think everyone needs a pair. When David and I went to Europe years ago you probably remember me wearing my Yosi’s the entire 6 weeks we were there. I love these bright ones for summer and they are so dang comfy. " -Amber Fillerup Clark

Denim on denim is a major trend in the fashion world right now. Pair our denim flats with your favorite jeans for your new summer uniform. We love Dani's rendition with her cute graphic tee!
"I think that the perfect spring shoe is something that you can chase your little ones in, feel comfortable in for all day outside outings, go on adventures, but still look cute as a mom. These are my absolutely hands down favorite shoes. I can’t stop buying them because they are so comfortable. Yosi Samra has the best flats. I am dying over these sliders and these espadrilles. Having shoes that still let me feel put together yet are so functional is exactly what these flats are. If you don’t have a pair of Yosi flats, girl, get on it. They will change your life babe." -Dani Marie

Summer style means flirty dress, and gold espadrilles! Blogger Kaitlin packed this dress along with her Yosi flats for an easy vacation outfit. Do you love this look as much as we do?
" This dress was the perfect throw on & go piece for a day of lunching in Naples! I love that since it has a sweater top, it doesn’t leave you shivering whenever you walk in somewhere with air conditioner blasting. When I realized I had my favorite Yosi Samra foldable flats in my purse, I decided to shoot with both those and my Converse to show just how versatile this piece is!" -Kaitlin

To get us excited for Spring, here are some Spring-y activities
that we can't wait to wear our new YS flats for:
Coachella, Governors Ball, Sasquatch, Firefly, Osheaga, Lollapalooza, SXSW...too much music, not enough time
Cinco de Mayo Parties
Shoes and Booze are always a good combo ;)
Picnics and Day Trips
Flats with both comfort for walking and style for photos are perfect for trips!
OK, maybe it won't be warm enough for a couple months, but we still can't wait to watch a sunset on the beach with someone special...
February in New York City has us shivering and dreaming of far off beaches and globetrotting adventures, so we thought we'd warm everyone up by sharing some amazing adventure destinations that totally inspire us! Of course, we all know that a trip is nothing without the photos, so we're also sharing our recommendations for shoes that are perfect for picture-taking and adventure-making!
There are two reasons you will walk until you drop in Naples: One - there are so many museums and monuments to see, that they call the city an “open-air museum”, and two - you’ll need to exercise after all of the yummy, authentic thin-crusted pizza you are guaranteed to eat.
So what shoes are both comfortable and will help you fit in with all of those stylish Euros? We recommend the Lara Calf Hair in Ballet Pink.
If your idea of adventure is lounging on the beach while sipping a cold cocktail, and not responding to emails - The Maldives is the spot for you. There are over 1,000 islands that make up the Maldives, which means an endless supply of beaches to lounge on.
How to style this relaxing adventure? We recommend the Roee Flip-Flop.
Pyramids of Gaza, Egypt
The history and reign of Egypt and its rulers has influenced every aspect of human culture for centuries and centuries. We are so inspired by the beauty of Egypt, and in particular one woman who has been a female style icon, though maybe by accident, for centuries: Cleopatra.
So what to wear when riding a camel and dressing like a queen? We recommend the Samra Frosted Croco flats (in Sienna)
Perth is both a beachy paradise and a major cultural hub in Australia. With beautiful beaches, amazing music and theater, and arguably some of the best nightclubs, there is something for everyone.
So what shoe fits an adventure that has a bit of everything? Samantha Perforated Leather flats.
