What wouldn’t she love about this brand? They have engineered these shoes and slippers to provide incredible support and comfort and hid all of that wonderful stuff into sleek and trendy designs.

This year Oprah chose to highlight the Vionic Faros ankle bootie – a beautiful suede shoe with a 2.25″ wooden heel, andfun fringe and studs on the side. It’s hard to believe that a heeled boot could contain the incredible arch support that the Faros does. This bootie is available at footwearetc.com in Greige, Black, andLight Tan.

Also featured on Oprah’s Favorite Things 2016 List are the Vionic Relax Slippers. These have been popular for years, probably because it is hard to find slippers with arch and heel support. Plus they are soft and cozy, easy to get on and off, and have an adjustable top strap to fit all widths of feet.

6 Reasons Pedicures Are Good For You!

6 Reasons Pedicures Are Good For You!

If you love getting pedicures then this is the news you want to hear! There are so many benefits to getting pedicures besides looking good.

PEDICURE BENEFITS:

  1. NAIL HEALTH. Buffing your nails more than makes them look shiny and new, it also encourages blood flow to the toes. Why is that important? The blood flow carries important nutrients to that area, promoting healthy nail growth.
  2. DETECTION OF FOOT AND NAIL PROBLEMS. When you have someone paying such close attention to your feet during a pedicure, they may be able to detect foot or nail problems in the beginning stages. Think about how many feet they’ve seen! Directly consult your doctor if you or your manicurist suspect anything unusual – and maybe stay away from the salon until you get a clear from your doctor!
  3. GOODBYE DEAD SKIN. Dead skin can build up into calluses and that’s just not pretty! Removing the dead skin will keep your feet clean and looking good.
  4. MASSAGE FOR LYMPHATIC & BLOOD FLOW. Don’t go for the ‘on-the-go’ pedicure and forgo the foot massage – in my opinion, the best part of getting a pedicure! Many manicurists have been trained to properly massage feet and hands. Not only do these massages decrease your chances of developing vericose veins, it also stimulates blood and lymphatic flow, giving your feet relief.
  5. INGROWN NAIL PREVENTION. If you’ve ever had an ingrown toenail you know they are no fun. When you cut your toenails, think square edges, not rounded. Pedicures help clean out disease-causing germs, helping to prevent ingrown nails as well. All simple but important steps in prevention.

PEDICURE TIPS:

  • Bring your own files and pedicure tools if possible. This ensures that you are receiving a sanitary pedicure, even though most reputable salons sterilize their tools.
  • Ask the manicurist to push back the cuticles instead of clipped. Cuticles are an essential part of your nails, protecting healthy growth.
  • Don’t wax or shave your legs before a manicure because this creates tiny cuts in the skin, leaving you vulnerable to infection from germs and microbes.

Now that you have plenty of excuses to get a pedicure, go ahead and book that spa date! And you might as well add on a manicure while you’re at it – you wouldn’t want to leave your hands out of similar benefits and relaxation!

Announcing Rockport Cobb Hill Collection + Total Motion Pumps!

Announcing Rockport Cobb Hill Collection + Total Motion Pumps!

Rockport Cobb Hill CollectionBig news from Rockport this fall – Cobb Hill shoes are now part of the Rockport family and will be know referenced as Rockport Cobb Hill Collection. When you combine two incredible brands like Rockport and Cobb Hill, you can expect great things! I know we do.

Since the creation of Rockport Cobb Hill Collection, we have received some incredible styles for the fall season. I’m very excited to announce our expansion of women’s Rockport shoes this season following the great success we’ve had on with our men’s Rockports.

Perhaps one of the most exciting announcements is the arrival of their dress pumps featured on Good Morning America! They did a segment on the high cost of wearing high heels. Women looking for that sleek, stylish thin stiletto look have suffered through pain and discomfort for the sake of fashion. But in recent years more and more fashion brands have been innovative in combining health, comfort and fashion.
