Harvey’s Seatbelt Bags – Unique Style, made in the U.S.A.!

Sometimes it’s hard these days to find products that are made in the U.S. Manufacturing typically occurs overseas because it’s cheaper for the company. I’m so happy to have found Harvey’s Seatbelt Bags; they come in a wide variety of styles and colors, are really cute and practical, AND they are made right here in the U.S.!

These bags are made from automobile seatbelts! I’m not kidding. As a result, they are incredibly durable. Each bag is sewn by hand as well. You won’t find these just anywhere!

Many of the bags even have metal feet for protection. They are also fully lined. You can get these fashionable bags in a variety of different sizes and styles.  For example, the Stella Hobo Handbag has a magnetic top closure, one internal zip pocket and three internal slip pockets. The Convertible Tote Handbag has an adjustable strap, a zip-top closure, four internal slip pockets and one internal zip pocket. There are many styles and colors for you to choose from!

Harvey’s Seatbelt Bags aren’t purely for the novelty value; they are great utilitarian bags that are really cute. These would make fantastic gifts, or for a splurge for yourself! And you can feel great about your purchase because you’re supporting jobs that have stayed in the U.S.!

New from BeautiFeel Shoes: the Melody

I personally don’t want to wear the same style of shoes that seemingly everyone in the universe wears. I like distinctive designs and colors. That’s what made me sit up and take notice of a new shoe from BeautiFeel: the Women’s Melody.

Is it a shoe? Is it a sandal? It’s a bit of both. It has a peep toe, perfect for showing off your latest pedicure. It has a distinctive design, with a combination of suede and patent leather in the upper. I particularly love how the lace-up design produces a custom fit. As with all BeautiFeel shoes, the heel-to-toe foam footbed provides outstanding shock absorption as well as stabilization of your arch. You can really feel the difference of the finest quality craftsmanship in this shoe.

BeautiFeel shoes are known for their high quality all natural materials. The latex rubber outsole is slip resistant and flexible. You’ll love the cushioning properties of the shoe, and the fact that moisture is wicked out of the shoe to help your feet stay comfortable.

My favorite aspect of this model is its incredible versatility. With all of the comfort features in this shoe, you’d think that you would have limited usage of this particular model. Not so; I could easily wear this shoe with jeans, or even dressier outfits. I appreciate being able to maximize the value of this hand-made shoe!

Available in Black Suede/White Patent Leather or Cacao Suede/White Patent Leather, this shoe could easily become one of your favorites for the warm weather months. Check out the BeautiFeel Women’s Melody  – this distinctive yet elegant design could become your next go-to shoe!

Flip Flops for Fantastic Fun!

You can never have too many flip flops during the warm months. I love how you can have casual versions that you can wear to the beach, or even dressy ones to wear to work (and many styles in between). Men and women both have a lot of choices to choose from, here are a few customer favorites:

Orthaheel makes a beautiful bejeweled flip flop called the Carla. Available in Gold Metallic, Bronze Metallic, Chrome Metallic, and Black Metallic, this phenomenal shoe is dressy enough to wear to work or out for an evening on the town. You’ll especially love how fantastically supportive this shoe is due to its biomechanical Tri-planar Motion Control footbed with deep heel cup. It’s also recommended by  wellness expert Dr. Andrew Weil and by the American Podiatric Medical Association.

An elegant flip flop by Naot is called the Jennifer. It contains a velvet nubuck and leather upper with decorative metal on the straps. It has great traction, and I particularly love the suede-covered cork and latex footbed that provides outstanding support.

The Helen by Mephisto is a versatile shoe that you could wear in both casual and slightly dressy situations. Available in Gold, Bronze, Black, Blue, Brown or Tan leather, this shoe provides phenomenal support due to its cushioned cork footed. You are really getting superior quality with Mephisto shoes, as they are handmade. See what this level of support can do for your feet!

Men also have options, such as the OluKai Kalo.   This comfy flip flop not only has an anatomical compression-molded midsole, it also has soft and thick jacquard webbing with a jersey knit lining. This is a great all-around flip flop for the warm weather months.

Juil has created a great men’s flip flop: the Apollo.  It is elegantly styled, yet can still be worn for casual outings. The anatomically-shaped leather footbed provides support, and the copper inserts provide Energy Flow Technology to help you tap into the Earth’s energy to help give you some spring in your steps. You’ll love how these shoes feel.

Step into Summer with some great new flip flops. You’ll be amazed at how versatile they can be.

Top 5 Reasons to Buy Orthaheel Products

I just bought my very first pair of Orthaheel flip flops. I knew they’d be good for my feet, but I had no idea the profound effect they would have on my life. I have chronic foot and knee issues, along with recurring Plantar Fasciitis. Have they made a difference to me? Absolutely. Here are the reasons why you should purchase them:

1)      There is great arch support. This makes a huge difference if you have “weaker” feet, or are prone to Plantar Fasciitis. I never realized how little support my other shoes were giving me until I put these on.

2)      There is a deep heel cup. This provides excellent stability, even in flip flops and slides. They are the most stable shoes I have ever owned of this type. They’re even more stable than some of my other conventional sandals, and I’ve got flip flops.

3)      The orthotic footbed actually helps you keep your body aligned properly. Misalignment definitely exacerbates my chronic knee issues (due to a floating kneecap). I find I have less knee pain because I’m aligned properly in these shoes. This would be amazingly beneficial to those with back problems as well.

4)      They are endorsed by the American Podiatric Medical Association and by Health and Wellness expert Dr. Andrew Weil. If those folks say these shoes are good for your feet, you can believe them!

5)      Orthaheels are stylish. Often, shoes that provide orthopedic value are just plain ugly. These are not. There are plenty of styles available for both men and women that look good on your feet as well as feel good. In fact, my teenaged daughter, who typically dislikes my shoes, actually said that these were nice. You have no idea how high that praise is.

I happened to get the Orthaheel Women’s Tide. These are great all-around flip flops that I can wear to the beach, or even out on the town because they are attractive. I’m even wearing them to work, as I type this. Yes, I don’t want to take them off. There are many other attractive and comfortable styles in the Orthaheel line (like Mary Janes and slides), check them out. There’s definitely one for everyone, and you will LOVE how they’ll make your feet feel and look.
