The Most Versatile Clogs Ever: the Merrell Encore Clogs!

I love the fact that clogs are so easy to wear. Just step into them and go! Clogs can be a part of so many types of casual attire, and one of my absolute favorite brands, Merrell, has an outstanding collection of clogs in the Encore series. What makes them special? Let me count the ways….

  • They are available for both men and women.
  • They are rugged, yet lightweight and flexible.
  • You can get them in Vegan-friendly models as well as models with leather uppers.
  • There is an air cushion in the heel for stability and shock absorption.
  • They are durable! You can go wear them out on the trail and not worry about them holding up.
  • Whether they are made from mesh or leather, they are breathable so that your feet can stay cool and dry.

The Encore series has a variety of models. Several of my favorites are:

The Women’s Encore Breeze 2 – this is a vegan shoe and is one of Merrell’s most popular models of any kind! The anatomical footbed is particularly wonderful; you can walk for hours in comfort with this shoe. The lightweight construction and breathability make this a phenomenal shoe.

The Men’s Encore Bypass – whether it’s to go grab the newspaper or to go for a short hike, this shoe is perfect for all sorts of applications. Its molded nylon arch shank and EVA foot frame provide superb stability and comfort. The lining has even been treated with the Aegis antimicrobial solution, so you don’t have to worry so much about foot odor! What’s not to love?

The Women’s Encore Disc – this is the shoe for those of us who LOVE color. It has all of the phenomenal properties of every Encore shoe, but comes in Rojo Synthetic/Mesh or Denim Blue Synthetic/Mesh. I love the circular patterns on each shoe that add visual interest. I might just need to get one in each color…

For the easiest-to-wear shoes ever, check out the Merrell Encore series. Take them outside to play, or enjoy them as you hang out at home.

Marchez Vous makes some of the most glamorous and stylish shoes out there. I love the richness of colors, and the beautiful curved heels. Company founder, Yeardley Smith – who just so happens to be the voice of Lisa Simpson – has superb taste and great foresight into what styles and colors are appealing to a wide variety of women. These styles are phenomenal dress shoes, and now there are some stunning new colors and models out there. (And see how nicely they go with Anuschka bags?)

My favorite pump, the Ines, now comes in a gorgeous Coral Suede. This is a fantastic color that will make your wardrobe pop! It’s elegant, yet fun and flirty. This gorgeous shoe is also really comfortable, and even though it has a 3 ½’ heel you’ll be able to wear it for hours.

Another great new color is Apricot, and you can see that in the Michelle and the Anne. The Michelle is a thong sandal with decorative metal details, and the Anne is a wedge with a criss-cross strap over the top of the foot as well as natural raffia in the sole. This is another color that really stands out, and can go with a lot of items in your bright, warm-weather wardrobe. These shoes just scream “Summer!”

Like Aqua? How about the Fleur in Aqua Snake Embossed Leather? This is a gorgeous dress shoe that you could even wear to a wedding! The peep toe design and gorgeous woven upper is stunning and can have a place in any wardrobe. As with all Marchez Vous shoes, the poron cushioning in the footbed helps make this shoe comfortable for hours on end, and the strap around the ankle provides a custom fit. It’s an absolutely stunning shoe!

One of my absolute favorite colors just so happens to be a hot color for this spring! Teal is such a happy color, and now it’s available on a bunch of cute shoe models. Take a look at some of the hot new styles in teal available now at footwearetc.com!

The New Face Women’s Canto in Teal Musgo Synthetic is a casual athletic-styled shoe. The man-made upper actually is teal with embossed circles in darker teal, and the toe has embellished stitching. You’ll love how the soft footbed makes your feet feel. With superb craftsmanship and stunning style, the Canto is the perfect shoe for casual attire.

Like Mary Janes? Check out the Naot Taramoa in Teal Nubuck. This shoe is incredibly comfortable due to the suede-covered anatomical cork and latex footbed. I really enjoy how Naot tries to set apart its many different styles of Mary Janes, and this one has interesting pleating and stitching on the top of the foot. The diagonal strap with Velcro gives the shoe a customized fit, and has a removable insole.

For athletic shoe lovers, there’s the New Balance W890SG2 running shoe.  It provides exceptional shock absorption due to the ABZORB cushioning in the midfoot, and is lightweight and durable. The teal accents in the upper and in the sole really add visual interest to this outstanding running shoe. You will love the terrific support that this shoe provides, and the teal accents really add style.

A beautiful thong sandal is the Earthies Toro. The laser cut-out detailing on the upper adds femininity, and the wellness footbed provides an anatomic arch support and cradled toe area to ensure comfort. I love the beautiful styling of this shoe. The teal color really pops, especially since it’s even on the heel. What a beautiful change of pace from the ordinary!

These are just a few of the gorgeous new teal shoes available this spring. Be sure to check them out and add some style to your life!

Trending Now…Cork-Accented Shoes!

Cork

Like the look of cork? Footwear etc. has a bunch of new styles containing cork-styled accents. You can have the interesting look of cork on the upper of the shoe, on the straps, on the heels, and even on the outsole. Cork lends a casual yet classy look to any shoe, and here are a few new models that you’re sure to love!

The SoftWalk Women’s Bandito – this sandal contains SoftWalk’s famous eggcrate footbed, which gives you cushioned comfort with every step. The outsole, however, has a cork-wrapped design, and adds visual interest to the shoe. Love that casual comfort!

The Arcopedico Women’s Scala is a Mary Jane style that has a leather upper that looks like cork! This cute shoe has an anatomic footbed so that your feet can be supported all day long, and the instep strap lets you adjust the shoe for a custom fit. I also like the fact that the outsole is non-slip. I won’t worry so much if I get caught in the rain!

Helle Comfort has a gorgeous sandal called the Elske. This shoe has a patent leather and cork upper with rhinestone embellishments. This is an elegant sandal that you could wear with almost anything! It’s particularly nice since the microfiber-covered footbed is padded and gives great cushioning as well as arch support.

My go-to brand for whenever my feet need extra support, Orthaheel, has a cork-styled sandal in the Yasmin II. This is the perfect shoe for casual wear. The Tri-planar Motion Control footbed provides outstanding support, and I love the cork styling and button embellishments on the upper. It’s an unusual look and I love that it’s just not your everyday old sandal.
