OluKai’s New Collection: Shoes, and Sandals, and Boots Galore!

The new collection from Olukai is in at Footwear etc., and it looks fantastic! There are some phenomenal choices in a wide variety of styles to select from, and I can’t wait to try them out! If you love supportive flip flops/sandals, shoes and even boots, you MUST check out this line. Their styles are unlike anyone else’s, and are a wonderful addition to your collection. Here are a few I’m anxious to check out:

The Nohea is a casual slip-on shoe. Made with soft nubuck leather, this shoe also features an anatomical footbed that is removable and washable. It’s the perfect casual shoe for weekend wear, or just around town. It’s available in Dark Java/Tan Nubuck or Black/Tan Nubuck, so between the two of them they can go with almost anything you wear.

For a stylish wedge/flip flop, try the Melia. Available in Black or Java leather, this stylish shoe is dressier than the average flip flop. It even contains a hand-sewn coconut bead detail and decorative footbed microstitching. I like the fact that I can have my wedge and my flip flop combined into one shoe!

OluKai also has a new boot available, the Kaona II. It’s a casual bootie with a rustic appearance. Made from premium leather, this boot also has a side zipper so that it’s easy to get on and off. With its non-marking rubber lug sole, this boot is also weather resistant and perfect for the cooler weather. I love the casual styling with the highest quality materials. And with OluKai, you know that you’re getting a comfortable, quality boot with an anatomical insole.

There are many other styles now available, so don’t wait to check them out! OluKai shoes, sandals, and boots are terrific values and there’s a style for everyone.

More Happy Shoes from Alegria!

I love it when Alegria announces new patterns and colors (as well as new models) to its line. By far, these choices are the most interesting of any brand I’ve ever seen. I really enjoy shoes that are not bland or boring, and Alegrias are anything but! Here’s some of the new styles that have piqued my interest.

Alegria Women’s Abbi – this is a lace-up shoe! You can really get a customized fit this way. The embossed pattern adds elegance, and the shoe is available in Black, Brown, or Surreal (a floral pattern) leather. The mild rocker sole alleviates metatarsal pressure, yet the flat heel provides stability in the shoe. It’s a good choice for those with Plantar Fasciitis or who do a lot of standing during the day. You can even insert your own custom orthotics into this shoe.

Alegria Women’s Classic Breezy – this clog is available in a bunch of beautiful colors, including my favorite, Dusty Rose Leather. I love the leather cut-outs in the upper. This is an easy-to-wear shoe that contains all of the usual fantastic features of every Alegria shoe, like the removable patented interlocking footbed system with latex, memory foam and cork. It’s comfortable, stylish, and can go with a bunch of outfits in my wardrobe.

Alegria Women’s Classic Fabric – here’s a new twist on an existing favorite model. Alegria has added some intricate fabric and patent leather to the Classic style. It’s a very unique style that lovers of pattern will really enjoy. Of course, lovers of good arch support will also be thrilled.

Alegria Women’s Kaitlyn – this could be your next favorite everyday shoe. It’s a Mary Jane style, yet provides a more secure fit than most Mary Janes you’ve probably seen. Available in White Floral Leather, Dark Floral Leather, and Black Nappa Leather, this really cute shoe is also stain resistant and slip resistant. I really love the floral patterns, they just exude happiness.

New Models from Gravity Defyer

Yes, you CAN have your cake and eat it too. You can have that comfortable shoe you’ve always wanted, without it LOOKING like a “comfort” shoe. Take a look at a couple of the new models from Gravity Defyer!

I really like the Men’s Arigato. It looks like a regular sneaker, but has all of the phenomenal benefits you find in every Gravity Defyer shoe. Available in black or white canvas, it’s a great casual shoe appropriate for those active weekends, or anytime you want a sporty shoe. It’s got the VersoShock Trampoline Technology that puts spring in your step as it absorbs shock, and helps propel you forward. Twin stabilizers also provide lateral stability. It even adds 1 ¾” to your height!

A new woman’s shoe is the Nivita. It’s a slip-on that is suitable for casual or “business casual” wear. I love the versatility of this shoe; I could wear it with a huge percentage of my wardrobe. It’s a comfortable shoe you could use for every day. As with all Gravity Defyer shoes, the VersoShock Trampoline absorbs the shock you induce as you step, and helps propel you forward. The Smart Memory Master Spring aids the trampoline by providing smooth transitions between when you stand still and when you move, and the twin stabilizers provide additional stability. This shoe also adds 1 ¾” to your height, in case you want to feel a little taller! This is a wonderfully easy-to-wear shoe.

Celebrity Sightings of Vibram FiveFingers – Not just for Elite Runners!

Barefoot running technology isn’t just for elite runners who want to experience the feeling of running barefoot while having protection for their feet. It’s for anyone who wants to feel more connected to the ground, and allow for the natural stimulation of muscles in your feet and lower legs. Anyone can benefit from this technology, and lo-and-behold there have been numerous celebrity sightings of Vibram FiveFingers shoes!

One of the latest sightings of celebrity wearers is the children’s musical group, The Wiggles. Vibram FiveFingers are the perfect shoes for all the activity of their stage show, and are fun to look at as well.  Other celebrities that have been observed wearing these shoes include: Josh Duhamel, Kate Hudson, and even Donovan McNabb. If they’re good enough for celebrities, they’re good enough for all of us!

I really like the fact that with these shoes, you can wear them for running, for strolling about town, for just relaxing, or even for beach wear. You get all the benefits of being barefoot, yet the soles of your feet are protected from rocks, heat, and other road hazards.

Vibram FiveFingers are available in a variety of styles and colors – with laces, or in slip-on styles. There’s a shoe for everyone! Just remember that if you haven’t experienced barefoot technology before, you might need some time to adjust. Wear them for just a few hours at a time, on non-consecutive days, until your feet and legs get used to the extra simulation. With the increasing popularity of these shoes, you’ll find a fantastic selection available.

Check out the Vibram FiveFingers shoes. If celebrities love them, you might too!
