What are Juils?

You know that feeling you get when you are walking barefoot in the grass or on the beach? You get that same “feel good” mood-lifting effect from wearing Juil’s Footwear. Wearing Juil’s is like the next best thing to being barefoot.

 

I reviewed a pair of JUIL Mesa sandals last spring and honestly, I wore them ALL SUMMER LONG. They became my favorite pair of sandals. I even found myself wearing them around the house as slippers… So comfortable and actually just quite addictive.

Aren’t they cute?!

So of course I was dying to try a pair of their new ballet flats! I received the Juil The Wing Tip Women’s Ballet Flat, one of three ballet flats they now offer in addition to their large selection of sandals.

juil the wing tip flats

First off, these flats are wicked cute! What’s not to love? Perfect shade of brown, soft and supple design, stretchy elastic to keep them on and a cute wing tip design on the toe. Absolutely just the cutest flats I’ve seen in a while!

I got size 7 (I normally wear a size 7 in flats and 7.5 in other styles, but they only come in whole sizes). Well, I should have gotten size 8 I think! I recommend if you wear a half size that you size up because these do run a big snug. Just something to keep in mind!

Price: $99

Buy Them: juil.com, Amazon.com, Get them on Nordstrom.com

Each pair of JUIL shoes are made with their exclusive Energy Flow Technology™, containing copper conductors (cute little dots) that connect your bare toes directly through the outsoles.

How To Wear Wedge Sneakers 3 Ways

Wedge sneakers are a huge trend for Fall 2013 / Winter 2014 and that means there are so many different pairs to choose from, it can be totally overwhelming trying to find a good pair. Then once you’ve found the perfect pair of wedge sneakers, what do you wear them with?!

No worries, I put together 3 outfits that are similar to outfits I’ve actually worn recently with my wedge sneakers. I have the Naturalizer Paitlyn Wedge Sneakers in “antiba green suede”. When I first took them out of the box, I thought they looked narrow and were concerned about how comfortable they would be. And then I put them on. And then I died and went to Heaven from the sheer amazement of how ridiculously comfortable they are and how easy they are to walk and stand in. It doesn’t even seem scientifically possible, But once you put them on, you’ll be a believer too.

I chose green because I wanted a unique pair that would stand out apart from the crowd. They come in black leather, taupe suede and dark brown leather as well if you want something more neutral and easy to pair.

Wearing: LAMO Cruiser Leopard Boat Shoes

lamo cruisers

I’m in love with these Cruiser Loafers from LAMO. They fit true to size, are comfortable with bare feet and no break-in time = no blisters! They are a cross between boat shoes and slippers. Very super comfortable so you can wear them all day long, but cute enough to keep on your feet no matter where you are going. An ideal slip-on shoe for summer as far as I’m concerned! I’ve been wearing mine constantly.

Best of all? They are affordably priced at just $39.95. You can’t beat that! They come in two different colors, but the leopard, of course, was my choice. It’s actually fuzzy like leopard fur which is a bonus. I’m just in love with these…

boat shoes

These are breathable and light enough for summer, but would also be suitable for Fall as well. I love the LAMO label on the back of the shoes too. Nice attention to detail and a success of a shoe, in my opinion.

Wearing: Therafit Carly Brown Sandals

therafit sandals

I’ve been testing out Therafit Carly Brown Sandals for a couple weeks now and have found them to be as comfortable as promised.

While I find them to be comparable to FitFlop’s, they are considerably less expensive. Ranging in price from $59 – $69, you can choose from the sporty “Sandy” in 3 hot colors for summer, the sparkly “Tiffany” in silver or black, and my favorite style, “Carly”, which comes in orange or brown (shown above).

The Carly that I’ve been wearing offers great support for a sandal – comparable to the support of a sneaker. These are an excellent choice if you are looking for a comfortable pair of sandals to bring on a vacation where there will be a lot of walking like at an amusement park like Disney World for instance. It’s easy to keep them on your feet because of the deep heel cup, so you don’t have to hang on to these with your big toe like most thong style sandals.

The entire construction of the sandal feels like it was designed to fit your feet like a glove. (Isn’t that what all shoes should feel like?) I also appreciated the stimulating acupressure points built into the sole of the shoe. The massaging effects the little bumps had on the soles of my feet made them feel energized.

About Therfit Sandals:

Therafit By Dr. Lisa was created by Dr. Lisa Masterson, from the Emmy award winning series, “The Doctors”, and designed for the everyday woman. She knows that as women we have to run errands and keep up with our busy lives either at work, at the gym, or just picking up the kids. To do all these tasks, we need shoes that won’t neglect our bodies and will support us all day long.

Known as the “12 hour shoe” because of its comfortable design, it comes in three different styles to choose from and a variety of colors. Therafit sandals use the same patented Personal Comfort System that their sneakers use. You don’t have to sacrifice style for comfort now! Therafit sandals are designed for ultimate comfort by using 86 reflexology nodules built into the footbed and a deep heel cup for all the support an active girl needs! Wear these sandals by the beach, or on a road trip; they won’t let you down!

therafit

Overall, I would definitely recommend these sandals for anyone that is looking for a fashionable pair if COMFORTABLE sandals that they can wear all day long without worrying about discomfort, blisters or fatigue. The price point is affordable as far as comfort footwear goes and there are enough colors and styles to choose from to please most consumers.

Let me know what you think! Would you buy comfortable sandals like this with the promise of all day comfort?

Comfortable Sandals for Women with Problem Feet

Not everyone can wear stilettos and high heels all day long! They are pretty and all, but let’s face it, most of them are pretty darn uncomfortable! Don’t worry, there are comfortable shoes in the world. You just have to know where to look.

When I was pregnant, my feet grew (swelled) almost a whole shoe size and none of my shoes fit. I pretty much lived in flip flops for my entire pregnancy because it was the only thing that would fit on my poor, fat feet. They weren’t very comfortable though, nor did they provide any support. Pregnancy does a lot to your body and wearing comfortable shoes or sandals during that time is quite important.

Pregnancy isn’t the only time comfortable shoes are a requirement. If you have young children you need to chase around all day, chances are you opt for comfortable sandals during the summer. And yet if your kids are all grown up and you are over 40, you probably have trouble feet and can’t wear those pumps anymore anyway.

Whether you suffer from diabetes or just have problem feet with issues like corns, bunions, custom orthotics or have recently had foot surgery, you need a comfortable pair of sandals you can wear all summer long. We found JUST the pair!

My Review:

DiabeticShoesHub.com specializes in offering a wide selection of comfortable footwear for people with problem feet. I had the opportunity to review the Drew Milan Sandals and I found these shoes to be supremely comfortable. Not something I would wear everyday because they aren’t the most fashionable shoes in the universe, but if you are looking for comfort, support, ability to adjust and customize the fit as well as narrow and wide widths, then these are an ideal pair.

The casual style makes them versatile and easy to wear with anything in your wardrobe. The other day I wore them with my leopard print jeans rolled up, a white tank and a chambray button down shirt. I wore them all day and was amazed that I completely forgot they were even on my feet! I definitely recommend these sandals to anyone who is looking for supreme comfort this summer.
