New MBTs Are Arriving Daily!

MBT Boxes

They’re here, they’re finally here, MBTs are arriving! For those of you who have been anxiously awaiting new styles and colors as well as some of your old favorites, this is the time to check out! MBT is back and better than ever, and has sent some great shoes to us.

Why are these shoes so popular? It’s all about the rocker sole. The natural instability of these shoes forces you to balance yourself, thus helping you improve your posture. There is great shock absorption. Many customers have reported an alleviation of pain in their joints as well. They are easy to wear, and easy to use when you have to spend hours on your feet.

Teachers, medical professionals, and even many other folks whose jobs require a great deal of standing or walking have touted these shoes for years. Here’s your chance to get in on the comfort!

If you loved the Kisimu sandals, you’ll love the Kisimu 3. It’s available in Honey for women, and black for men and women. The Kisimu series has been one of MBT’s most popular sandals over the years, and this version is sure to please as well. I personally have found them to be one of the most comfortable of all of the MBT products I’ve tried.

The Sport 3 for men and women is a new version of the Sport series. It has a slimmer profile and toe box than the Sport 2, and a streamlined appearance. You’ll find that feeling of the rocker sole  is just as pronounced as always, and this shoe is a fabulous shoe for exercise. It’s also lighter in weight than the Sport 2 was, making it much easier and comfortable to wear.

A great casual shoe for women is the Muziki. This slip-on Mary Jane has a canvas upper and is available in Military, Chili, and Dove. This could be the perfect casual shoe for shopping, running errands, and just being out and about. Just slip it on and go!

These are just a few of the new shoes available from MBT at Footwear etc. Come check them out while they’re still available!

My New Favorite Shoe: the Orthaheel Fiji

orthaheel fiji

I needed some new flip flops. I wanted a pair with great support, and some style. I may need orthopedic features in my shoes, but the last thing I want is to look like I’m wearing the shoes of an Old Lady. When I found the Orthaheel Fiji, I was ecstatic!

This is no ordinary flip flop. Not only do you get outstanding support and comfort, you also get a shoe that is easy to care for and looks gorgeous! What specifically makes them so great? Let me count the reasons:

1)      The arch support is phenomenal. (It should be, it’s designed by a podiatrist!). I have actually used these shoes when I needed to walk for a few hours, and my feet felt great.

2)      The shoes contain a deep heel cup. This provides stability and helps keep your feet from pronating.

3)      The footbed is easy to clean, so if you walk on the beach and get the shoes full of wet sand, don’t worry! (Just use a damp cloth to clean them up.)

4)      The straps are adorned with faux jewels, and these shoes come in Jade, Ivory, Black, or Mustard Synthetic. You can wear them for casual or somewhat dressy occasions!

5)      The lightweight midsole provides terrific shock absorption, so you’ll want to walk for miles in these shoes!

6)      The rubber outsole gives you great traction so you don’t have to worry as much about slippage.

7)      Orthaheel shoes are recommended by wellness expert, Dr. Andrew Weil, as well as have received the APMA seal of acceptance.

These stylish flip flops are GOOD for your feet! I absolutely adore mine. They are perfect for a trip to the market, a visit to the shore, or even when you go out for a nice dinner while wearing a sundress. What more could you possibly ask for? Check out the Fiji today, and see why Orthaheel flip flops are so phenomenal.

Love Mary Janes? Check out the Pikolinos Gandia!


pikolinos gandiaMary Janes are amazingly versatile shoes. You can wear them with slacks, dresses, even jeans. The dressiness is entirely dependent on how the shoe is styled, and that’s why I’m excited about the Pikolinos Gandia 849-8964F. It’s not your everyday Mary Jane!

For one thing, it’s got lots of embellishments. Note the decorative stitching all along the toe box and at the heel. The ornamental holes in the toe box not only add visual interest, it also helps keep your feet cool! (Such a bonus!) I really like how the heel is not just leather, it also has a stacked wood grain. Even the leather upper is two colors, yet it’s classy, not garish. I love the fact that I can wear this with a variety of outfits in my wardrobe. But its classy and interesting style isn’t just what makes this shoe great….

It’s comfortable! (Of course it’s comfortable, or wouldn’t carry it! The adjustable strap gives you a custom fit, and there is a gel and foam padded midsole so that you feel like you’re walking on great cushioning. There is even a second insole that helps your feet stay cool and dry. The 1 ½” heel is just high enough to look elegant, yet still makes this a great shoe if you’re on your feet a lot of the day.

The Gandia actually comes in a non-Mary Jane version, called the Gandia 849-9094. It’s basically a pump version of the same shoe, and comes in Tortue/Cuero Leather, or Sandia/Cuero Leather. These are also beautiful, easy to wear shoes with unusual styling that can make you feel unique!

Check out the Gandia shoes from Pikolinos. They exude style and comfort that will make them favorites in your collection!

Sebago Thayer Oxford: Casual Elegance for Men!

Sebago Thayer

I love shoes that can be both casual or somewhat dressy. There are so many shoes that can do that for women, but men sometimes have difficulty in finding that perfect go-to shoe. Here’s a great option: the Sebago Thayer Oxford. It’s suitable to wear with jeans, or khakis, or dressier slacks. This shoe would have been perfect for our wild weekend in which we attended a college graduation, followed by a birthday party. This classic design and incredibly comfortable shoe could easily be used as that all-around shoe that works for almost any occasion.

Sebago is famous for its boat shoes, but isn’t limited to just that kind of design. With the Thayer Oxford, you can have a great fit with this lace-up as well as a wonderful footbed that provides comfort and support. This model is lightweight and durable. With its energy return heel pad, you can have continued cushioning and shock absorption. The EVA Die Cut Outsole is durable and flexible, and the Latex Rubber Comfort Control Footbed is stable and supportive. I really love the classy look of the full-grain nubuck leather upper.

The Thayer Oxford is available in Milkshake Nubuck or Chocolate Brown Nubuck, and even comes with two different sets of laces for more color choices. Hm, there’s another birthday party coming up, I think my husband needs a pair of these….

Look for the Sebago Thayer Oxford for the ultimate in classic styling and casual elegance for men!
