Smartwool Socks – Phenomenal Comfort and Gorgeous Style!

Smartwool

As the weather cools, I love to wear cozy socks. But sometimes socks itch, or make my feet sweat, or just don’t hold up well. I just found Smartwool socks, and they deliver a much more positive experience!

These are not just your everyday socks (although you’ll want to wear them every day!). They are made from high-quality Merino wool, which helps keep your feet warm and dry. Some models are cushioned, some have a supportive arch brace, and all of them have outstanding moisture-wicking properties. They also contain a technology called WOW™, which adds an extra layer of yarn in the high impact areas of the sock. This technology makes the socks up to 30% more durable than conventional socks.

There’s a style for everyone. Need some unobtrusive socks to wear inside your flats? Check out the Women’s Secret Sleuth. It’s available in Medium Black Wool or Medium Natural Wool, and has a profile such that you really don’t see the sock when you wear a flat shoe.

Like classic cable socks? There’s the Smartwool Women’s Cable. Available in Black, Chestnut, or Grey wool, this sock is a crew length with beautiful woven cables. The Women’s Cable is perfect for everyday wear and goes with all sorts of attire. It’s even made in America!

Men have some beautiful and comfortable choices in the Diamond Jim socks. These socks are available in Taupe or Black wool, have the same extraordinary qualities of Merino wool, and even have a supportive arch brace woven into the sole. What’s not to love about this classically-styled yet innovatively-designed sock?

These are just a few of the available models from Smartwool. Keep your feet cool, dry, and comfortable this winter!

Orthofeet Shoes for Sensitive Feet!

 

Orthofeet AstoriaIf you have sensitive feet – and you know who you are – finding truly comfortable shoes can be an arduous task.  There’s a brand that specializes in shoes for people with persnickety feet: Orthofeet!

If you’ve got heel pain, arch pain, hammer toes, diabetic feet, and even arthritis, this brand can really help alleviate your symptoms. What’s so special about Orthofeet?  They provide superior shock absorption and cushioning. They help propel your foot forward. The wide, high toe box has very soft linings to help reduce pressure points on your foot. The insoles are anatomically shaped to provide extra support, and the shoes are shaped to allow the use of custom orthotics. And many models are available in wide and extra wide widths!

There are many types of models of Orthofeet shoes. Need an Athletic shoe? Women can check out the Tahoe. It’s a phenomenal walking shoe that is truly kind to your feet. The “Tie-Less Lacing System” allows for easy on and off, and the orthotic insole contains a deep heel cup and an anatomic arch support.

A casual Men’s shoe is the Clearwater. It’s a fisherman-style sandal with adjustable Velcro straps, and provides plenty of ventilation to keep your feet cool and dry.  This casual shoe is perfect for everyday wear, and is a nice alternative to an athletic shoe. The Velcro straps are customizable and allow you to have the perfect fit.

A versatile slip-on shoe for women is the Astoria. Available in Navy or Black leather, this shoe has an adjustable Velcro strap on each side of the upper. I love the fact that this shoe can go with all sorts of attire, and provides superb comfort without looking like a shoe designed for 900-year-old people.  If you don’t want anyone to know that you have “special needs feet,” this shoe can help you keep your secret!

‘Tis the season for some really cute boots! I can’t wait to try out some of the new models from my favorite manufacturers. There’s a style for everyone, and every occasion! Here are some of the new boots that are now available at Footwearetc.com:

BeautiFeel has a gorgeous bootie called the Fina. It has a herringbone pattern with a red patent leather adjustable Velcro strap. I particularly LOVE the metal buckle that the patent leather strap is attached to. The entire design of the shoe is dainty and elegant, perfect for wearing with a suit or other stylish dress. The 2 ½” heel is low enough to be comfortable, but it’s high enough to look beautiful. As with all BeautiFeel models, this boot is made from the finest quality leathers, and contains a very cushioned footbed for outstanding comfort.

Rieker has a gorgeous ankle boot called the Kendra 63. It’s casual yet luxurious due to its supple leather upper. It’s easy to get on and off because of the side-zip entry. What’s especially great about this boot is how lightweight and flexible it is. You can wear it all day as well, because the footbed has cushioning and the 1 ½” heel makes it easy on your feet.

A casual knee-high boot is the Earth Women’s Bigsky. It has style reminiscent of a cowboy boot, but is very wearable all over town. With its beautiful leather upper, the boot also contains a unique wellness footbed that has a cupped heel, anatomic arch support, and cradled toe area. This boot is incredibly comfortable and shock absorbent, and the slide zipper makes it easy to get on and off.

And of course, there are the UGG Boots. A brand new style that is absolutely adorable is the Women’s Josette. Think Classic Short with a gorgeous leather bow on the outside. The top-quality sheepskin will definitely keep your feet warm and cozy this winter, and you’ll love the gorgeous colors available (Sangria, Black, and Chestnut). I can’t wait to get a pair of these for the cool weather!

Introducing…Daneli Shoes!

Daneli Dusseldorf

Footwear etc. now has its own line of shoes, called Daneli shoes! There are four brand new models that are classic in style and phenomenal in comfort. I just tried these on and I am absolutely sold on how great they feel. Here’s a sneak peek:

The Daneli Women’s Dusseldorf is a stylish Mary Jane with a 1 ¼” heel, an adjustable Velcro strap, leather lining and premium leather upper. It feels luxurious, yet it’s comfortable enough to wear all day long. This is one of those few models that I would feel very comfortable wearing to the office and then to a night out on the town. The low heel adds some elegance, yet it is completely comfortable and does not put stress on the metatarsal part of the foot. This particular shoe even comes with an additional insole that has extra support and cushioning that you can use instead of the insole already in the shoe. I am really impressed by this shoe and I think it should become a very hot item!

You can never have too many ballet flats, and Daneli now has a beautiful model in the Phoebe Bow. It has gorgeous lines, and is made from the finest quality leathers. Containing foam padded removable inserts, this stylish flat molds to your feet, and feels completely luxurious due to its leather lining and premium leather upper. I love the bow accent; it almost looks like a rosette!

An easy-to- wear slip-on loafer is the Daneli Women’s Nature. It has a textured leather upper and a button accent for not just visual interest, but for convenience in getting the shoe on your foot. The texture almost looks like the bark of a tree (hence the name Nature)! It is also fully leather lined with foam padded removable inserts, and comes with the bonus packaged insole that has more cushioning and support. This is a fantastic casual shoe.

If you’re in the market for a flat Mary Jane style, check out the Daneli Women’s Narelle Mary-Jane. It’s a casual style that you could wear all day long. As with the other Daneli models, it has the adjustable Velcro strap, premium leather uppers, and full leather linings. For extra cushioning and support, swap out the original insole for the included extra insole. You might want to wear this shoe all the time!

With these classic styles, Daneli shoes are sure to be a hit! Get in on the action at footwearetc.com and pamper your feet with these gorgeous new models.

Clarks Women’s Ashland and Women’s May Poppy: Everyday Shoes for Work AND Play!

Clarks May Poppy

I like to get a lot of mileage out of my shoes. In particular, I like to be able to wear the same shoe from one activity to another. That’s why two shoes have really caught my attention: the Clarks Women’s Ashland, and the Clarks May Poppy. What is it about these two models that grabbed my attention? Lots of things!

The Ashland is a classically-designed shoe available in Brown, Mid-Brown, Black, and Navy Leather. They’re all neutral so they can go with lots of different wardrobe pieces. It’s easy to wear, since it’s easy to slip on and off and the leather upper is luxuriously soft. The OrthoLite® footbed provides lots of cushioning, and the style is such that you can wear it with jeans or with nicer slacks. I could easily wear this from work to play! The beautiful embellished stitching and decorative buttons provide some casual elegance, and I can’t wait to take this shoe out on the town!

The Clarks May Poppy is going to be my #1 work shoe. I would have absolutely no qualms about wearing it out to dinner or elsewhere afterwards. Again, Clarks has come up with some beautiful, classic styling that is perfect when you need to look professional OR casual. The 2” heel makes it easy to be on your feet for hours, and the OrthoLite® footbed provides outstanding cushioning. The flexible outsole provides great traction as well. It’s available in black, brown, navy, and brown crock leather, and definitely meets my criteria for a great everyday shoe.
