If you haven’t watched my You Tube video introduction of the NEW Dr. Scholl’s Original 2.0 sandals, then you need check it out!
The Dr. Scholl’s Jamie Trainer was the second pair of Fall shoes that Dr. Scholl’s asked me to review.
I’m a mother of 2 young children, but to be honest, I’m not much of a sneaker gal. I like comfortable shoes but I don’t usually want to LOOK like I’m comfortable… Afterall I’m The Fashionable Housewife! lol
Well, I was a little hesitant to try these on when I saw the picture on the outside of the box. Once I opened the box though and actually took them out and looked at them, I warmed right up!
They look a lot like Converse sneakers but are WAY more comfortable! I almost died… I could not believe how soft, supple, squishy and ultimately comfortable these sneakers were! Can I wear these to bed? Seriously!!!! I haven’t even felt slippers this comfortable….
- Canvas upper in an athletic sneaker style with a round toe
- Free Step(TM) minimalist construction creates a natural foot strike
- Lace-up front, side medial eyelets
- Neoprene stretch collar
- Seamless Dri-Lex(R) lining wicks moisture away
- Aegis Microbe Shield(R) controls odor
- Removable insole with Dr. Scholl’s(R) Massaging Gel
- Traction outsole, flat heel
It’s got to be those Dr. Scholl’s Massaging Gel Insoles ($19) that make them so gosh darn comfy…. The sole is super flexible which made me want to dance in them all day. No break-in period required with these! Though, keep in mind these do not have arch support so if you feel you really need arch support you might want to get a different insole for these. They have removable gel insoles so they can easily be switched out.
I wore these to a Labor Day party and I had them on for about 9 or 10 hours. This was my first day wearing them and I had no blisters, no discomfort, just pure squishy bliss all day long. I wore them with PowerSox CoolMax No Show Socks which was a great combo but you really don’t have to wear socks with the Jamie Trainer since they have such a comfy lining.
These sneakers SLIP ON. Super convenient for busy moms or when traveling (going through airport security, roadtrips, etc). The laces are just aesthetic to make them look like a sporty sneaker, although they will tighten a bit if you need them to be a bit more snug. I have wide feet and I buy wide width whenever available. I found these fit me quite well so if you have narrow feet, you may find that these might be too wide for you. This could be remedied by wearing thicker socks though as far as fit goes.
(These sneakers are my favorite, but I also love vans shoes uk.)
If you are thinking of getting a pair of Converse sneakers, STOP! Try these first! So much cuter and miles more comfortable! You’ll never want to wear any other shoes ever again! They are hands-down the most comfortable sneakers I have ever worn.
They come in lots of great color combos. Here are a few of my favorites…
