Let’s talk about shoes. I’m not sure about your family, but I find some of my family more challenging to shop for shoes than others. Here is why.
First off, let’s start with myself – I think I am actually the easiest to shop for. Like many women, I love shoes – I love ones that fit my personal style, while also providing comfort and function (I want the shoes to coordinate with a number of outfits).
When I got these Luxe Bobs I instantly fell in love. I put them on and have been wearing them non-stop. They are super cute and comfortable and I love that they coordinate with my purse.
Now let’s talk about my husband for a moment. He would not actually be that hard to shop for when it comes to style, the hard part is that he needs a size 13 shoe that is very durable – that boy is hard on his footwear.
Both him and I were very impressed with the Expected – Bremo- Charcoal canvas with leather shoes from Skechers. They are vintage washed with a relaxed fit. He really liked the roomier fit and the memory foam footbed – instant comfort. These shoes feel extremely durable which is a huge bonus in my books.
Now for the girls. Our daughters have very different feet as well – people often say it is good to have 2 girls because you can pass down shoes from one to the other, but in our case that has not been the way it goes. You see, my oldest daughter has very long, narrow feet. She is a tall girl and we have often had a difficult time finding shoes that are not too wide for her foot, there is nothing worse than a foot sliding side-to-side causing discomfort.
Julia says these GO Walk – Interval- Heathered Mesh Slip On shoes from Skechers are her favorite. First of all, she loves the fact that they are slip-on, and the memory foam provides her maximum comfort. I am thrilled that they seem to be a perfect fit for her narrow, long feet.
Our little girl Emily is a ball of energy – she is pretty easy to shop for when it comes to shoes, because her feet seem to be a standard size. When looking for shoes for her, we like ones that fit her fun-loving personality and can handle a lot of go, go, go. The Lite Kicks II – Gamer Girl shoes offer just that. They are interactive – offering a fun memory game on one of the shoes. Honestly, at first I was unsure if it would be a distraction, but a lot of thought must have went into how it is made. There are no lights or sounds that come on while walking or running and there is the option to have the noise off when the child is playing the memory game. You can see below the flowers on the shoe – those are the buttons for the interactive game.
