Announcing: Arcopedico Shoes!

Our new kid on the block comes out of Portugal, and is a brand of casual shoes with great support. Arcopedico shoes range in styles from lace-up shoes with knit uppers, to Mary Janes with leather uppers. They come in a bunch of fun colors, and will definitely make your feet feel great as you show off your sporty style.

The great part about this brand is that they have an orthopedically designed outsole that contains twin arch supports. What this does is distribute your weight all over the entire footbed. The cork and latex in the footbed also provides extra cushioning, so you’ll feel comfortable walking and standing for hours. These shoes even have great air circulation properties, so your feet can stay cool and dry. What more could you ask for in a shoe?

Arcopedico LSThe Arcopedico Women’s LS is a lace-up shoe with a knit upper. It’s available in some really fun colors, like red, orange, black, beige and grey gunmetal, so you can make them work with almost anything in your wardrobe. I particularly like this shoe for casual weekend wear; they’re comfortable yet rugged enough to wear around town.

Arcopedico ShawnaI happen to love Mary Janes, and a style I really like is the Arcopedico Women’s Shawna. It has a leather upper that is soft, and contains accent stitching for visual interest. The upper is really soft and luxurious, and comes in a variety of colors as well (such as red, green, pewter and black). This shoe is dressy enough to wear to work or during a casual evening out. It may be a casual Mary Jane, but it definitely is attractive enough to wear to your favorite restaurant!

These are just a couple of the new styles available from Arcopedico. Check out our website for more timeless and versatile designs!

We’ve Got Belts….by Ariat!

Leather isn’t just for shoes. Sometimes you just need a good belt – not just one that merely holds up your pants, but one that is stylish and comfortable. Now, Ariat has answered that need with a new line of belts for men and women!

Ariat Chloe BeltMade from comfortable, premium full-grain leather, these hand-tooled belts provide not only comfort, but beauty! Intricate stitching and hand painted details set these belts apart from the masses.  Rugged simplicity is the key component in the styling for men, whereas anything goes for women!

Another feature of these belts is the Grip Strip™ technology. If you’ve ever been annoyed by your belt slipping, these belts are for you!

Women’s styles include models that are hand painted, adorned with rhinestones or studs, and even cutout details. Men’s styles tend to be much more classic in appearance, but still contain details that make these belts attractive for any occasion. The buckles on the men’s and women’s models are also removable.

Ariat Diesel BeltIf you like bling as much as I do, check out the women’s Chloe. I absolutely LOVE the hand-painted details on this belt, and the feminine details on the buckle. It’s 1.5” wide and comes in small through XL in size. (See the size chart for the product to determine which size you’d need.)

A beautiful belt for men is the Diesel belt. It comes in Brown Rowdy Leather, which is sort of a pebble-finish. I really like the simple yet elegant buckle, and the contrast stitching. These come in numerical sizes, so order one size up from your waist size.

Belts don’t just have to be utilitarian. Try out the new belts from Arat. For style and practicality, they can’t be beat!

 

Join the Wave of the Future with Clarks Wave® Footwear!

We all need good walking shoes. They don’t always have to look like athletic shoes either; you might want to have something a little more formal yet provide outstanding support, and make walking the fun experience it’s supposed to be. Clarks has an entire collection of shoes devoted to exactly this premise: the Clarks Wavewalk™ collection.

The Wavewalk™collection carries the seal of acceptance from the American Podiatric Medical Association, and is designed to make walking much more of a joy.  How does it work? The collection contains a unique curved sole. This sole allows you to use your natural momentum to roll forward smoothly with each step. This mild rocker sole minimizes the impact of each step. Superior shock absorption helps reduce stress on your joints, resulting in less body fatigue as well.

There are a variety of styles available for both men and women. A few favorites include:

 Clarks Wave.Tackle

The men’s Wave.Tackle – this slip-on shoe is the perfect casual shoe for sloppy weather. It’s waterproof and contains a durable rubber outsole that provides outstanding traction and durability. Stretch gores in the upper allow you to get the shoe on and off easily. It’s a great rugged shoe for everyday wear. It’s also orthotic friendly, in that it contains a removable OrthoLite® footbed.

3-clarks-wave-cruiseThe women’s Wave.Cruise  – This Mary Jane-styled shoe is elegant enough to wear to work or out on the town, yet contains the same outstanding mild rocker sole and support features of all the other shoes in the collection. The removable EVA heel support allows for the use of orthotics, and the removable dual density OrthoLite® footbed adds cushioning and shock absorption. This is a great shoe to wear almost anywhere!

Clarks Wave-PioneerA great lace-up shoe for men is the Wave.Pioneer – this is a wonderful shoe for casual wear, yet provides phenomenal support and mild rocker sole action so that you can walk for hours on end. I really like the casual style of this shoe; this would be a suitable shoe for weekend wear, or for any casual occasion. Its classic style combined with the OrthoLite® footbed and mild rocker sole make this shoe a can’t miss item!

Clarks Wave-ShelterThe Clarks Wave.Shelter – even boots are available in this collection. With a side zipper for easy entry, this boot is also lined with faux shearling for warmth and softness. You can walk for miles in this cozy, comfortable boot.

These are only a few of the many possibilities from the Wavewalk™ collection. Try them for a fantastic walking experience!
