Plae shoes are so fun for kids and parents! They have interchangeable velcro tabs and the tabs come in so many fun designs. But above that, these shoes are packed with features. They are anatomically formed to naturally contour to a child’s foot, they have incredible traction for both loose and hard surfaces, the toe guard keeps little toes safe, a flexible sole allows free range of motion, and their Eco-Ortholite insole provides great shock absorption.


And here are the new styles you and your kids will love, now available at

Plae shoes is based in San Francisco and they are designed for the needs of children. Since children’s bones don’t totally fuse until they are about 18 years old, the shoes address the requirements of kids’ feet throughout their development. As a result, Go Plae shoes are flexible, adjustable, and durable enough for all sorts of play. The interchangeable tabs adjust to fit thinner or wider feet, and also provide a way to change the look of the shoe so that the child can coordinate colors and patterns with their outfits, or even their moods! Each shoe has excellent traction on a variety of surfaces, contains a toe guard to help protect the toe, and even contains an anti-microbial/bacterial bio-oil insole.

Not only do Plae kids shoes contain all sorts of wellness properties for children, they are eco-friendly. The uppers are made from recycled PET plastic (milk jugs). The EVA heel cup is made from recycled cork, and the shoes adhere to ISO 14001 as certified environment-friendly leather and suede. If that’s not enough eco-friendliness for you, note that the factory in which these shoes are made is solar powered and is a fair labor factory. You can have a completely clear conscience as you purchase these outstanding shoes for your children.

Men’s Newport H2 by Keen

Keen Newport H2 for Men

This men’s Keen sandal resembles their very popular styles, with breathable design and their famous toe guard so you can hit the hiking trails without worry of injuring your toes. One of my favorite features about this shoe is they are MACHINE WASHABLE!!!

Nothing cuter than your son and his father wearing the same sandals! I love this sandal for kids the same reason I love this sandal for men. They are super durable and even hold up under the craziness and roughness of kids playing. They have to toe guard to protect their little piggies, and they are MACHINE WASHABLE – this is a MUST for kids who have stinky feet! Not only do parents love this sandal, but kids love it because they can still run at lightning speed while having the breeze blow through their feet on warm summer days.

Come see the rest of our fantastic Keen shoes at More coming in just a few days!

New Vionic Sandals: Getting Ready for Spring!


If you haven’t heard of Vionic shoes and sandals yet, we’d be surprised considering these shoes have been featured in Oprah Magazine consistently over the last couple of years. Here’s why:




We just received some of the new Vionic sandals and shoes for spring and we are in love with the line. Here are some of our favorites…

Vionic Tia

Vionic Tia

The Vionic Tia reminds me of yoga pants because of the stretch strap and the casual style – it makes me think that I’d be in danger of never taking them off if I dare put them on. I mean, if they are anything like my yoga pants, I’ll be wearing them all day and night! The Vionic Tia wouldn’t be a Vionic sandal without it’s superior arch support, a rare feature in women’s sandals. It is also lightweight, flexible and has a rubber outsole to create traction on slippery surfaces. We have it in three colors: Black, Berry, and Teal.

Vionic Paden

Vionic Paden

Are you a fan of the T-Strap sandal? If so, you’ll love the Vionic Paden. One of the reasons I like the T-Strap style is because it makes my feet look longer (in a good way!) and is a little more sophisticated than a regular flip, allowing you more versatility with outfits. With amazing arch support, shock absorption and adjustable strap, this is one of my favorite Vionic sandals of all time. We carry the Vionic Paden in Tortoise.

Vionic Samoa

Vionic Samoa

I love the studded detailing on this two-strap sandal from Vionic. The Vionic Samoa sandal is not only super chic, it’s super practical! With two adjustable straps over the top of your foot, you can easily slide these on and off with a customizable fit. Plus, the footbed is covered in microfiber which is not only comfortable, it also cleans well. We carry the Vionic Samoa in Pewter and Black.

Vionic Rizzo
Vionic Rizzo

Maybe you are more of a wedge gal – if so, you’ll love the Vionic Rizzo. This resort-wear inspired wedge has elegant knotted straps the scream “WEAR ME TO THE TROPICAL RESORT you picture yourself in all day at wo

rk!” In my experience, Vionic wedges are extremely comfortable while giving you that lift you desire. The Vionic Rizzo features a 2.25″ heel height, and has all the other wonderful Vionic features, such as amazing arch support. We carry the Vionic Rizzo in Black.

Vionic Floriana

Vionic Floriana

Back by popular demand! The Vionic Floriana has been one of Vionic’s most popular sandals, aside from the Vionic Tide Sandals. This is a thong-style sandals and features beads and studs on the straps, really bringing this sandal up a notch in chicness! My favorite color from this spring line is the Gold Cork, featured below. But if that’s not your cup of tea, we also carry the Vionic Floriana in Bronze Croco, Black Croco, Natural Snake, White, Pink Snake and Teal Snake.

That’s Not All…

There are so many more new spring styles that just came to our site from Vionic – come check them out and join me in getting spring-ready from the foot up!
