The first time I heard about Earth Footwear was from Leah Segedie, creator of Mamavation and an amazing inspiration for better personal health and fitness. Leah was wearing some rockin’ boots at Houmas House during the Bloggers on Bourbon luncheon. Leah is the perfect ambassador for this brand, which promotes posture and fitness through their shoe design.
Fast forward a few months and Leah arranged to have Earth Footwear send me a pair of sandals to check out for myself. I could immediately tell these shoes were quality when I opened the box – each shoe came in its own dust bag made of recycled materials. I put a sandal on my right foot and immediately could feel the comfort in the sole.
The Fey 2 Earth Footwear sandals have a comfortable leather upper. Sophisticated, yet playful. Debonair, yet casual. The range and versatility of the Fey 2 is what makes it so memorable and, well, so perfect. Unflappable, it’s always at its sophisticated best – especially now, with a freshly updated leather-lined footbed. Thin overlays of soft leather add texture and depth, and are neatly contrasted by the peek-a-boo toe. Adjustable buckle and hidden elastic stretch material add a hint of practicality, helping to create a truly superb fit. These sandals retail at $129.00.
While I’m not quite ready for orthopedic shoes, I do realize that traveling by plane and foot requires a bit more attention to pampering the feet. Fortunately, I don’t have to reach for the grandma shoes just yet. The most defining feature of Earth® Footwear is a slight 3.7° incline – a unique design that positions the toes 3.7º higher than the heels. The natural angle re-distributes body weight – strengthening, toning, and engaging muscles throughout the body. Couple this with the anatomic arch support and Biofoam cushioning, you’ll feel like you’re walking on a cloud.
The Fey 2 is one of many designs and styles of sandals, boots, and other footwear by Earth Footwear. Leah and Earth Footwear have arranged for one lucky reader of TravelingMamas.com to have a chance to win their own pair of Earth Footwear sandals in the Fey 2 style, just like me. These are perfect for the Traveling Mama who loves exploring the world in a comfortable, yet fashionable way.
