Fit Flops – Not Your Everyday Flip Flops!

I don’t know about you, but I like to wear flip flops year round. There’s nothing better during warm weather, and they’re so easy to slip on when the weather is cool and you just want to run out to get the newspaper. But I hate flip flops that have no support, and fall apart easily. My feet were so happy when I discovered FitFlops; they are everything I love in flip flops.

Let’s face it, most flip flops are boring. But FitFlops are anything but boring! Where else can you get shoes like this with interesting metallic leathers, or patent leather, or even suede? There’s a style for every look in your closet! And you don’t sacrifice comfort for style. In fact, you may want to stay in them all day long!

Thanks to its Microwobbleboard technology, FitFlops create muscle toning properties while also providing outstanding support. They actually increase the amount of time that your muscles are engaged as you walk, and therefore allow your muscles to get a better workout than in conventional shoes. They also absorb shock, and can help reduce foot pain and pressure from plantar fasciitis. You can feel the arch support, which I really love. And they’re fun to wear!

The FitFlop Walkstar 3 in Bronze is a particular favorite of mine. Who knew that there could be dressy flip flops that provide toning properties? I love that you can have dressier attire and still have flip flops to go with your outfit! Perfect for a night on the town. Another favorite is the Oasis in Chocolate – the suede is soft and feels great on my feet. These are wonderful all-around flip flops, great for any occasion or attire.

Don’t sacrifice comfort and potential toning properties just for the ease of a flip flop. Check out the great styles and colors of FitFlops. You’ll never purchase a pair of no-support flip flops again!

UGG Boots and Shoes – Not Just for Women!

Men can rejoice at some fantastic new styles of UGG Boots just for them! UGG Australia has introduced a variety of boots and shoes, perfect for every situation. You don’t have to just watch the ladies get new stylish footwear, men can have their choices too! Here are just a few to check out:

The Ladigo and Calafia are perfect shoes for everyday wear. Made with interchangeable leather and sheepskin insoles, you can wear them for casual occasions, or even to the office. The outsoles provide excellent traction during sloppy weather.

For the coldest and sloppiest weather, try the UGG Butte. It’s warm and cozy with its high-quality sheepskin, and has waterproof leather to keep your feet dry. The Vibram outsole is specifically designed for wet and snowy weather. It’s the ultimate winter boot!

The UGG Australia Men’s Rockville II is a stylish motorcycle boot. You can choose which insole to wear depending on the weather; leather for warmer temperatures, sheepskin for the cold. The molded rubber outsole provides great traction, and the buckles provide an edgier look!

The UGG Beacon is another rugged, waterproof boot for men. The combination of sheepskin and leather in the upper makes for an even more durable and breatheable boot.  The genuine sheepskin sockliner wicks away moisture, so your feet stay warm and dry.

And if you need a comfy slipper to relax in, consider the UGG Ascot. But it’s not just a slipper; it has a reinforced heel and toe, and the outsole is molded rubber so that you could wear it around the town if you wanted to. And as always, the plush sheepskin keeps your feet warm, yet wicks away moisture so that they stay try and comfortable. What’s not to love?

 Men, don’t assume that the women have all the choices. UGG Australia has just the right shoe or boot for you too!

True Balance Technology in New Balance Athletic Shoes, and for Aravon’s Riley and Ria!

I love New Balance shoes. They consistently fit my feet well, through a variety of styles and a variety of sizes as my feet have changed over time.

Now there’s another new style for me to love: New Balance’s True Balance. Another great toning shoe from my favorite athletic shoe company!

As with all New Balance shoes, the True Balance models come in narrow, medium, and wide widths. There’s no sacrifice in comfort here, there’s a width for everyone.

But the exciting part about these shoes is that they are terrific toning shoes! Using their True Balance Sole, these shoes create natural instability so that you unconsciously work a little harder with each step. The solid rubber outsole provides superior durability, and the balance board technology contains a spring system design that helps you tone as you walk. The ABZORB insert also provides great shock absorption, protecting all of your joints. We can all use that, can’t we? And True Balance technology also helps those of us with plantar fasciitis, keeping that sheath stretched as we tone our glutes and calves.

The New Balance True Balance shoes come in several styles, including: the WW850 (which comes in silver, white, black, or light blue mesh), and the WW1100 (which is available in silver with blue, silver with black, or white).

But it’s not just New Balance coming out with the True Balance technology; you can also get more formal shoes that utilize it as well. Enter the Aravon Riley and Ria for everyday wear!

The Aravon Riley (sneaker style) and Ria (Mary Jane style) utilize all of the True Balance benefits but in a shoe you could even wear to the office. The hook and loop closures ensure a custom fit, the antimicrobial sock liners help keep your feet dry and odor-free, and the removable Velocor footbeds allow you to use custom orthotics if you need them. Here are the toning shoes you can use for everyday wear, without them looking like they belong in a gym!

Discover the benefits of the True Balance technology in New Balance and Aravon shoes. There’s a toning shoe for every aspect of your life!

Take Care of those UGG Boots this Winter with the UGG Care Kit!

Let’s face it, UGG boots are an investment. You’re getting the best quality sheepskin available, in very high quality boots. You could get some cheap knock-off, but those don’t hold up the way that Authentic UGG boots from UGG Australia do. So if you’re going to spend the extra money to get the best quality boots you can find, why not protect them so that they’ll last as long as possible?

This is precisely why the UGG Care Kit was developed. When you’re investing in a good pair of boots, taking care of them is important. The UGG Care Kit contains everything you’d need to ensure that your boots look and feel fabulous for as long as possible. The kit contains the following:

Sheepskin Cleaner – this solution removes tough stains, and gives the sheepskin a clean and bright look.

Sheepskin Protector – protects against damage caused by rain, snow, dirt, and stains.

Sheepskin Freshener (my personal favorite) – helps keep your boots from smelling like FEET. It eliminates odor caused by bacteria and keeps your boots fresh smelling.

Also included in the kit are a sheepskin brush and a stain/scuff eraser.

I’m certain that this kit is going to come in handy for me this winter. I don’t want my boots to look good for just a couple of weeks until the weather gets sloppy, I want them looking great all season long (and beyond). So protect your investment with the UGG Care Kit. A little care will keep your boots looking great for a long time!

Dansko Professional Pink Ribbon Clog for the Cure!

I love Dansko products. My Mary Janes have gotten me through work, and some long parties. The Kelsey is my ultimate casual comfort shoe. My go-to shoe for whenever my feet hurt (for any reason) is the Professional. And now, I have another reason to love Dansko. They’ve come out with a Professional in pink ribbon patent leather to support Breast Cancer Research.

For every pair of Professionals in pink ribbon patent leather purchased, Dansko will donate $5 to the Susan G. Komen Foundation for Breast Cancer Research, up to $25,000. Even your shoe choice can help support this incredibly important cause.

The Dansko Professional is the premier clog for all-around use. I regularly wear mine to work, with dressier clothes as well as jeans. I see lots of medical professionals and teachers wearing them; they’re great for when you have to stand on your feet all day. They are slip resistant, perfect for slick environments at work or during sloppy weather. They provide exceptional support and stability. Using the rocker sole has helped keep my feet stretched and alleviates my issues with plantar fasciitis. I love the soft, high-quality leather used for the upper, and the durability of the polyurethane outsole. And now, you can get them in pink patent leather to support Breast Cancer Research. Comfort shoes to benefit cancer research? How can it possibly get better?

Check out the stylish Dansko Professionals in Pink Ribbon Patent Leather. They’re not only good for your feet, they’re great for your conscience too. And who knows, maybe increased awareness to the cause might help someone you love.
