Without exerting a whole lot of effort, I’ve managed to slim myself down over the course of the last year. While I am no where near the shape I was SEVEN loooong years ago (gravity is not my friend) … I am finally resting at my pre-ANY baby weight. I’ll take it.
A few weeks ago SuperDad convinced me that it was time to buy myself some new clothes at my very favorite store, White House/Black Market. I was giddy, ecstatic! I wrote a post.
So I have these fantastic new clothes just burning a hole in my closet…waiting to get worn out on the town…. or perhaps to Disney in April for the Disney Social Media Moms conference. But I was having some trouble with the shoes.
Enter Earth Footwear. The wonderful women at Global Influence and Bookieboo, LLC (the fabulous behind Mamavation) offered me the opportunity to review a product from Earth Foothwear’s new spring line…. with their new “positive heel” and their more affordable pricetag. Win on both accounts!
I’m going to admit straight out that when I received the shoes I was not overly thrilled. The style that was sent to me is not one that I would pick up and try on in the store….honestly, I wouldn’t even give it a second glance. I put off trying the shoes on for a bit…but when I did I was so excited about the positive heel that I started to take a second look at the shoes overall. When I began to pair them up with some of my new clothes, I was more than surprised (and pleased!) to find that they would round out the outfits nicely! (My mom used to tell me over and over not to discount clothes until I had actually tried them on…. she’s right again!)
Versatile shoes are always a plus, so I tried them out with a more casual outfit….plain ol’ jeans and a black tank top. An outfit like this I can wear out for lunch with the girls or, if the star align, out for a fun Girl’s Night Out!
Earth Footwear is known for its “negative heel” shoes. This new line has a “positive heel” that allows for some height without putting your feet through the trauma that high heeled shoes often do. I love high heeled shoes but they do not love me. With the onset of fibromyalgia during my pregnancy with SuperBaby, high heeled shoes are something I save for a rare occasion. An occasion I will have time to recover from the next day with sore feet and legs. These new Earth shoes have a padded heel to displace shock, a reinforced arch to help stabilize your feet and a multi-density latex cushioning layer for extra support. These shoes were sounding better and better.
Sure enough, I can wear these shoes without feeling that swelling and aching in my feet that I normally get when I wear shoes with a heel. Yeah!

I was compensated for this post by Global Influence as part of a Bookieboo LLC campaign w/ Earth Footwear and received a free pair of Earth Shoes for the review. These wonderful people know all too well that I speak the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth….and they continue to hire me anyway.
