My friend Leah is this awesome chick. You’ll see her custom hashtag floating around Twitter that reads #mamavation. That’s all about Mom’s getting off their butts and getting motivated. She’s the one that keeps you pumped up and inspired. She also introduced me to Earthies.
What are Earthies?
Shoes. Not just any shoes, but amazing shoes! Believe me, I’m a shoes worst critic. I have a wide foot and used to be able to compensate by going up a half size. However, with the ways shoes are being manufactured today, it’s like their are all A width and the rest of us have the feet of Godzilla.
“Earthies® is the first footwear collection to bridge the gap between fashion and wellness in answer to the demands of even the most discerning fashionista who not only prioritizes style, but also personal health and well-being. As a company with a more than 40-year reputation in the design of “good-for-the-body” footwear based on its heritage brand, Kalsø Earth® Shoes, Earth, Inc. is in a unique position to establish Earthies® as a pioneer in the newly-minted category of fashionable wellness footwear.”
She asked me if I’d like to review a pair. Before I said yes, I researched. They were true to fit. They were a normal fit. And? They were a standard cut! Meaning? I could size up my 9.5 to a 10 and have a great shoe.
I was nervous when they got here, but I slipped them on and started strutting and they were comfortable! So much, I wore them to the Opera last night with dress pants. That’s right. New shoes, 3.35″ heel, and tons of walking. Sure, my feet were sore by the end of the night, but considering I’m a gal who wears flip-flops 24/7? They would have been sore even in my most well-worn shoes.
I checked out their site this morning, with feet that normally would have been in pain 24 hours later and found out it’s because of their wellness footbed. “A cupped heel sets the foot into the proper supported position. An anatomic arch increases touch points along the transition from the heel to forefoot. And, a cradle toe area evenly distributes weight away from the toes.”
In other words? The shoe is made the way it’s supposed to be. With support. Cushioning. Call me a convert! I’ve now added more pairs to my wish list. Admittedly, they are pricey. My pair cost $160. However, I’d rather spend the money on one pair of shoes like these than 3 or 4 pair of crappy heels that hurt my feet, or worse, fall apart after a few wearings. Ask the people that know me, I’m going to quality versus quantity.
Know what’s even better? I’m going to give a lucky reader a pair of Earthies. I like to think of it as a little early Holiday Cheer. Something to perk you up or help pull together a great outfit in a pinch.
One lucky Daily Pinch reader will win a pair of Earthies shoes. Style will be based on inventory, but will be in your size!
