Super comfortable, fashionable shoes from Arcopédico

 

Are you a “shoe person?” What I mean by that is do you enjoy wearing different shoes throughout the week? Do you have different shoes for different outfits? Do you have shoes that match your purse?

I’ve always been a sneaker person. Growing up I was a “Tomboy.” I was outside, playing in the woods behind my house, from sun up to sun down. If I didn’t get filthy dirty, then I wasn’t truly playing. My mom had to force me to take baths every night before going to bed because I was covered with dirt and mud from playing outside.

I guess my Tomboy beginning is the reason why I never really got into shoes (I prefer to be barefoot). My friends loved buying shoes, but for me, a good pair of sneakers that mom could toss in the washing machine was all I needed to be happy.

Me as a young child. I’m a girl! But I sure look like a little boy in need of a haircut. Ha Ha.

In my late teens into my early 20’s, that all changed. Once I was old enough to go to parties and hang out with my friends at clubs, I suddenly cared about what I wore on my feet as much as how good my outfit looked and how perfectly my make-up was. It was then that I was able to appreciate why people were so into shoes.

Fast forward a few decades (sigh…). I’m still a sneaker girl at heart, but I do appreciate having a few different options in my closet. I like having a more dressier shoe (more than a sneaker, less fancy than heels), a few dress shoes and some fashionable boots. I like being able to switch things up from time to time. I still lean towards sneakers as my “go to” shoe, but I do enjoy wearing something else as well.

Are you familiar with the brand Arcopédico? I wasn’t until I was pitched a pair of shoes from them.

I was sent a pair of Arcopédico shoes to try out.  I was sent to review Arcopedico’s Leta.

The Leta is considered a “slim” shoe. I’m not exactly sure what that means, but none the less, I love this shoe. It’s super cute and goes with a lot of the clothing I have. You could pair these shoes with skirts, dresses, jeans, and shorts. This is a fun shoe for spring, summer and fall.

The Leta features:

  • Elastic laces which allow you to slip this style on and off with ease.
  • The sole features Arcopedico’s twin-arch support, keeping your feet well supported all day.
  • Removable insoles (perfect if they get stinky when wearing with no socks) and are washable.
  • Made of Lytech which is soft, lightweight, breathable and will not pinch or bind your feet.
  • Vegan

Leta B comes in white and taupe and has a decorative, colorful pattern on the sides. I have the white ones.

There is also the other version of this shoe, The Leta, which is available in red, navy, black and grey and features one stripe.

These shoes are so incredibly comfortable. These feel like “house shoes” because they are so comfy (like a slipper), but these are meant to be worn out and about.

You can wear these with, or without, socks.

The shoe it’s self is soft on the outside. It might look like stiff material (like regular sneakers) but the shoe is very flexible.

Not to sound lazy, but I enjoy not having to tie my shoelaces. In fact, most of my sneakers have the laces double knotted so I can slip them on without tying them. These shoes come with elastic laces, making it easy to get them on/off.

I can’t comment much on the arch support, but I can tell you that I can wear these to work and my feet are perfectly fine at the end of the day. I’m on my feet a lot at work, and do a lot of walking back and forth. These shoes have been nothing but super comfy to wear.

I haven’t had the opportunity to wash the insole yet. I wear socks and I don’t think I have stinky feet. I guess that is a great option if you need it.

I like how these shoes seem to “mold” to my feet. Because they are soft, they stretch where you might need a little more room. Unlike other shoes that you have to “break in” before they are stretched out and comfortable enough to wear for long periods of time, these shoes were ready to go from the moment I took them out of the box and placed them on my feet.

I love the colorful design too. These shoes match with so much in my wardrobe.

I only see the brand on Facebook, in case you wanted to check out their account there as well.

What do you think of these shoes? Do you think you might want a pair for yourself?

Step back to school in style with Aerosoles

 

Back to school

Can you believe it’s back to school time? I sure can’t. It seems like only yesterday we were enjoying the Fourth of July fireworks.

Our oldest started her first day of college today. Our son doesn’t start back to school (high school) until after Labor Day.

Children and teens are not the only ones who are going to school this year. Many adults are also “hitting the books” to finish a degree (or start a new one) or to learn a new skill to better themselves and their jobs.

I WISH I was going to college. I think about it all the time. I am 12 credits shy of my Bachelor’s Degree (maybe more since it’s been almost 20 years since I dropped out). I would go back in a heart beat if we could afford it (we don’t want a student loan – we do not want any debt).

When you have to trek all over campus, or if you find that you are on your feet all day at work, you need comfortable shoes. My job requires me to be on my feet a lot. Comfy shoes are a MUST.

One of my favorite shoe brands, Aerosoles, has plenty of great options to choose from whether you need a quality sneaker to hike all around campus or a classy heel for a night on the town.

Aerosoles sent me to review one of their sneakers – Air Cushion in Black Nubick.

Air Cushion Aerosoles

I’m a sneaker girl. I prefer to be barefoot but that is not practical when you leave home.

I love sneakers because they are super comfortable and provide my feet with much needed support.

I almost always wear white sneakers (all white). For a change of pace I asked Aerosoles if they could send me the Air Cushion sneakers in Black Nubick which is a black material and with shiny black accents.

During the cooler weather months I tend to wear a lot of black dress pants to work. Black goes with everything plus being overweight black can be a bit thinning too. I like that these shoes pair perfectly with my black pants. At the same time they look just as good with my denim capris. They can go with just about anything I wear.

Aerosoles Air Cushion sneakers have the following features;

Stitch ‘N Turn

To create this seamless smooth design, we start inside out, stitching the upper to the flexible rubber sole, which has our unique diamond pattern. Then, we turn the shoe right side out and insert our extra cushioned footbed. The result is an ultra flexible shoe that cradles your foot in the utmost comfort.

Diamond Flex Soles

You will always know an Aerosoles shoe by our unique diamond flex sole found on every pair. Our rubber composition soles with a unique diamond pattern are designed to disperse friction away from the foot.

Memory Foam Insole

Comfort foam footbed and sumptuous padded insole soothe and pamper your feet.

Sueded Sock & Lining

Breathable and super soft our footbeds provide a soft layer for your foot to rest on.

I like the look of this shoe. It’s very trendy without being OVERLY trendy – if you know what I mean?

I opted for the black shoe, but it’s available in a variety of color combinations.

Aerosoles Air Cushion

This shoe is incredibly comfortable. Sometimes with new shoes there is a breaking period where you might find the shoe uncomfortable for a few times until it “molds” to your foot and/or stretches out. I did not have that problem with this shoe. It fit perfectly and felt comfortable from the first time I wore it.

I love memory foam insole. It feels so good under my foot. With each step the foam cushions my foot. I think that is the reason why my feet don’t feel as tired as they normally do after standing on them for a long period of time.

For me, these shoes are like wearing my favorite bunny slippers – they are THAT comfortable.

I like that these shoes are casual, but also something you could wear to the office (unless your office has strict dress codes). These shoes have a nice casual/dressy look to them.
