For the lightest, coolest, most flexible shoes you’ll ever find, check out the NoSoX line. These shoes are incredibly lightweight and are perfect for traveling. The mesh uppers compress easily so that you can pack them in your suitcase and not have them take up much room or weight.

These shoes are terrific for just “knocking around.” They are cool, since the mesh fabric is very breathable. They are designed to be worn with or without socks, making them very easy to wear. The EVA insole and outsole are very light and spongy so that you feel like you’re walking on air. What a great option for a very casual shoe! (more…)

Top Sellers for Summer!


Casual comfort is the name of the game during the summer months, and our shoe sales truly reflect this concept. Here at Footwear etc., we love seeing the new trends and products that come out, and what models our customers choose. With hot colors and cool styles available, you’ll love these popular shoes!

Earthies makes a gorgeous, lacy-looking flat called the Bindi. It’s available in Light Teal, Black, or Biscuit Nubuck, and these colors are flying off the shelves! No wonder this flat is so popular; it’s very lightweight yet supportive due to its anatomic arch, and the cradled toe area helps distribute your weight away from your toes. It’s casual enough to wear with jeans, and dressy enough to wear with skirts. A wellness footbed plus superb style makes this shoe a winner!

Orthaheel’s Tide is the perfect flip flop. It’s available in a LOT of colors, and is likely to be THE most comfortable flip flop you’ll ever own. The arch support and deep heel cup provide support and stability unlike that in any other brand, and you’ll find this shoe easy to wear all day long. It’s perfect for the beach (since it’s water resistant), as well as out around town. I find that it really helps reduce stress on my legs and absorbs shock very well. No wonder this shoe is so popular!

Like driving mocs? Check out the Clarks Dunbar Racer. It’s a casual slip-on with decorative stitching and a durable yet flexible outsole. It’s available in Red, Fuchsia, Tan, Orange, Gold, White, and Citron leather, which will give any outfit a pop of color! It’s perfect for weekend activities, or even merely as the ultimate driving shoe given the reinforced heel. I also love the cushioning in the footbed!

See why these shoes are Footwear etc.’s top sellers. You’ll love how they make your feet look and feel!


From Casual to Dressy, There’s a David Tate Style for You!

David Tate North Star

We’ve got a new brand here at Footwear etc. that’s creating some buzz…David Tate Shoes! Why are they so popular? It’s all about the styles. These shoes are very fashion forward, yet also encompass classic style and great comfort.

These shoes have some phenomenal features, including a variety of widths for each model, so you can get a custom fit. I also really like the fact that their boots come in both medium and wide calf widths.

By using the finest skins and fabrics, you can feel the luxury in each step you take. And with styles ranging from casual sandals to dressy pumps, there’s a David Tate shoe for every wardrobe.

Some of my favorites include:

The North Star – a dressy sandal with an adjustable ankle strap and rhinestones on the fabric upper. This shoe exudes sophistication and you’ll want to wear it to your fanciest events. Available in Silver Satin or Black Satin, this gorgeous shoe is perfect to use with formalwear.

The Fitter – a really cute flat with a bow on the toe. I love the texture of the leather! This shoe is available in Yellow, Turquoise, Silver, Black, and Natural Lamb Mini Lizard Leather, and feels completely luxurious on your feet. I can see myself wearing this shoe to a wedding next week – and it’s comfortable enough in which to dance the night away!

Like slip-ons? Check out the Samantha. It’s a gorgeous slip-on clog with a stretch material upper. It’s dressy enough to wear with nice slacks, but casual enough to wear with jeans. The footbed is padded and has perforations at the arch, which makes this shoe even more comfortable. The flexible outsole is particularly nice since it has a grip tread so you don’t have to worry as much about slipping. It’s available in Navy or Black!

David Tate Shoes are perfect for the fashion-forward, discriminating wearers. See how these innovative designs provide superior comfort!

MBT Men’s Safety: the Only Steel Toe Rocker Soled Shoe!

MBT Safety

Here at Footwear etc. we constantly have customers who need work shoes with steel toes. Many of those customers are on their feet all day and greatly prefer the comfort provided by shoes with rocker soles. For this special case, only one shoe will do: the MBT Men’s Safety.

The Safety is aptly named, since it contains a Class 1 steel toe, designed to protect your feet from possible injury due to falling objects, stubbing your toes, etc. The Safety also has a durable lug sole, which can help provide traction. And as with all MBT shoes, you’ll love the feel of the rocker sole and the natural instability it provides. By forcing you to find your own center of balance as well as helping to propel you forward as you walk, this shoe is fantastic for people who are on their feet all day.  This may be the perfect work shoe for those who need extra protection in their shoes.
