I definitely have a love for shoes, which I’m sure most of you were already aware of. I do have a slight problem though with purchasing shoes for myself without thinking about the pain they will give me as I wear them around. Its not that I have feet that can handle a variety of shoes. I’m a dancer (I teach classes on Tuesday nights), so my feet are used to all sorts of torture from all types of shoes. I just know that with three young kids, I spend most of my day tripping over toys and/or running after them. So- needless to say- I now look for style and comfort! When I first heard of Earthies, a division of Earth, Inc. I knew I’d found a great site.
Earth, Inc. started in the 1960′s in Denmark with the idea of making a shoe that was comfortable based on simple principles of whole-body wellness. These were originally designed by a yoga instructor named Anne Kalso. Her idea was to structure shoes to mimic you were walking on the beach barefoot. Now Earth Brand includes: Earthies, Kalso Earth, and Earth Footwear. Kalso Earth Shoes give the shoe a negative heel (similiar to the yoga “Mountain Pose”) naturally causes your body to be direction over the frame. Earthies are characterized by an anatomical wellness footbed to help position the feet in a more healthy manner – its Wellness, Elevated
Earthies sent me a pair of The Valencia in bright yellow, which I am so excited about! When they arrived, I was amazed at the packaging my Earthies came in. They were each neatly wrapped and packaged inside a normal cardboard shoe box, but Earthies actually took the time and found packaging to wrap around the flower on top. I found this to be such a nice detail that many shoe companies doesn’t usually do. This pair of shoes is really not only comfortable, but made of high quality materials. You can also see the strong craftsmanship used to make these. Its no wonder Earth Inc shoes are made with our wellness in mind. These slide on platform sandals fit me really well and feel like I’m wearing a pair of comfy flats. I ordered my pair in my normal size 8 1/2 shoe size and I would recommend you do the same thing. Their shoes seem to be true-to-size.
WIN: Earthies is giving away a pair of The Valencia to one lucky reader, too!
