Skidders Shoes and Socks

Posted by Robin . on Wednesday, April 13, 2011, In : Shoes 
I'm constantly in search of adorable footwear. Mostly for my daughter but, I'm always happy to find something for all the other kids in my life (and sometimes even for myself!). Recently, I came across some insanely cute footwear that I had never seen before and totally fell in love.

Skidders footwear is absolutely unique. It is footwear designed to be worn indoors or outdoors and made with the comfort and safety of kids in mind. The Skidders shoes go on like socks, are as comfortable as slip...

Sanuk "Not a Shoe" Giveaway!

Posted by Robin . on Friday, April 1, 2011, In : Shoes 
I'll admit it, I'm what you might call a "shoe-aholic". The thing is, I don't go crazy buying shoes that are going to make my feet suffer all day. Give me comfort and give me style. I like a laid back style and stuff that is casual and comfortable. Luckily, there's a shoe company that seems as though they've made their shoes just for me.

Sandals...they've made their sandals just for me...."They aren't shoes, they're sandals"....whichever they are, they're Sanuk. And I've got a major crush on ...

Umi Children's Shoes

Posted by Robin . on Wednesday, March 16, 2011, In : Shoes 
When it comes to children's shoes, I expect a few things in my purchase.

I expect them to be adorable.

I expect them to be affordable.

I expect them to be comfortable.

I expect them to last, especially if they are a bit pricier.

The Umi shoes that my children own are all of those things.

Umi shoes are probably my favorite shoes that my kids have ever worn. They each have several pair and every pair is absolutely adorable, wonderfully comfortable and have held up better than any of their other ...

I've been wanting some new black winter boots this year. I'm not the kind of person to spend the amount that a certain, well-known, three letter brand of winter boots charges. (rhymes with bug) I've been browsing and shopping and now my feet are toasty warm in the most adorable, stylish pair of new black winter boots! And, they are totally affordable!

Rocket Dog has been one of my favorite brands of shoes for a while. This summer my newest addition to my collection was a pair of super cute, li...

For the past few weeks, my feet have been happy.

I mean, sublimely happy.

We're talking "I'm walking on sunshine" kind of happy.

Until I take off my Sanuk shoes. Then my feet get a little sad.

I remember the first time I saw Sanuk shoes. My father-in-law, proving to be hipper than I, has been sporting them for years and I've been coveting them for as long. You can tell when someone's wearing Sanuk shoes. It's like they're in on a little secret that you may not be privy to and they've got a little...

You know what I love?

My daughter's laugh. And when something makes her sublimely happy.

You know what makes her laugh?

Her Wee Squeak shoes.

My daughter is very much like me in her love for shoes. She squeals with delight when she gets a new pair and she is adamant about picking out her shoes in the morning. She generally changes her shoes no less than three times throughout the day. One of her very favorite pair of shoes is her adorable tennies from Wee Squeak.

Wee Squeak offers children's sho...

Delicate Soles - Rollable Shoes GIVEAWAY CLOSED

Posted by Robin . on Tuesday, August 3, 2010, In : Shoes 
Several months ago, I attended a baptism that my husband was photographing. I wore new high heels that day. Gorgeous high heels that ended up being one of those "pain for beauty" type situations. My feet were killing me by the end of the afternoon. I really would have loved to change my shoes during the small reception but, I couldn't really tote an extra pair of shoes with me.

Then, I found Delicate Soles.

Delicate Soles carries incredibly stylish rollable shoes that are so compact, you can ...

Lindsay Phillips Snap Shoes CLOSED

Posted by Robin . on Tuesday, July 13, 2010, In : Shoes 

One of my personal favorite things about summertime is flip flops. Oh yes, I love shoes of all kinds but, flip flops are definitely my favorite. Some of my most favorite flip flops - the comfiest, cutest, most versatile - are my Lindsay Phillips Switchflops. I got my first pair of Switchflops last summer and adore them. Switchflops are flip flops with interchangeable straps fastened by velcro. I love the versatility and love being able to change the look of the shoes simply...

Oka b. Shoes That Love Your Feet CLOSED

Posted by Robin . on Saturday, June 26, 2010, In : Shoes 

No one ever told me how much I'd be on my feet once I became a mom. Between cooking meals, running errands, daily housework and attending the many functions and parties that fill the calendar, the life of a mom is busy day in and day out. Those bon bons we stay at home moms eat all day, must be eaten on the run. When it comes to footwear options for the busy mom, it's generally either form or function. The choice must be made between comfort and fashion.

At least, that's what...

Weboo Shoes - Unlike any other kids' shoes! CLOSED

Posted by Robin . on Wednesday, June 16, 2010, In : Shoes 

I feel like cute shoes are just a necessity. You know, food, clothing, shelter...and cute shoes! Now, I've got myself and my daughter totally covered in that department but, it gets a bit harder when it comes to my son. I'm sure that the mothers of boys know what I'm saying. Sure, there are cute shoes out there but, my 6 year old wants fun shoes, theme shoes. Let's face it, usually the theme shoes are just a little too cutesy and babyish for my cool little boy. He recently r...

Jollys Garden Clogs CLOSED

Posted by Robin . on Monday, May 10, 2010, In : Shoes 

I love me some easy on-off shoes. I'm a flip flop fanatic but, sometimes I need something that will protect my feet a little better and really don't want to go through putting on my tennis shoes. When I'm working in the yard or doing heavy duty cleaning around the house and garage, I like a comfortable shoe that I can easily get off and on.

Jollys shoes and clogs are perfect. They have been a leader in all-weather shoes for over 25 years and are made in Germany from 100% CFC...

Eleven Collection Shoes Giveaway CLOSED

Posted by Robin Haws on Tuesday, March 30, 2010, In : Shoes 

You all know that I'm nutso about shoes. If you didn't know that already, let me tell ya, I'm nutso about shoes.

As much as I adore a new pair of shoes for myself, nothing makes me quite as giddy as an adorable pair of shoes for my kids. My daughter sports her precious See Kai Run shoes all the time and she looks way too cute in them. When she got them, I lamented over the fact that my son was too big for See Kai Run.

Then I found out that there's an answer to this dilem...

So, y'all know how crazy I am about shoes. Doesn't matter if it's shoes for me or for my kids, I am in love with shoes. I was sent a pair of shoes recently that are so awesome they seriously make me want to have another baby. Really. These shoes are fantastic!

Foxpaws Shoes are the most adorable, chic, stylish little shoes I have ever seen for babies. I am in love with them! The Classic Giraffe pair that Foxpaws sent me to check out are exquisite. The stitching is per...

Umi Shoes Gift Code for Everyone!

Posted by Robin Haws on Thursday, November 26, 2009, In : Shoes 
My kids run everywhere. If they are moving towards something, they are more than likely running. They set their sights to get where they are going with constant disregard for puddles, sticks, rocks, end tables and anything else that may be in their path. When shoes come off they are haphazardly tossed aside, thrown into closets or baskets and shoved under beds or couches. My kids aren't abnormal. They are kids and kids are hard on their shoes.

Children's shoes should be built to last. Kids do...

Soft Star Shoes has been making quality footwear for over 20 years. All of the shoes are handmade in the USA and all the materials come from US based tanneries. The leather used in making these shoes is environmentally friendly and safe for your feet. One of the really great things about these shoes is the inner lining.

Daniel Green CLOSED

Posted by Robin Haws on Tuesday, November 3, 2009, In : Shoes 

Just in time for those cold winter nights! Daniel Green is giving away two pairs of their amazing shoes!

I have always loved house shoes. I like to wear shoes inside. In the summer, I always have flip flops on but, in the wintertime, I really like to have a comfy pair (or pairS) of house shoes that I can wear. My absolute favorite house shoes ever are from Daniel Green.

The story of Daniel Green is pretty amazing. It all began with two brothers in the late 1800s. The ...

Wee Squeak CLOSED

Posted by Robin Haws on Sunday, November 1, 2009, In : Shoes 

One reader will win a pair of the Beibi line shoes from Wee Squeak!

Footwear that's fun for kids is the perfect way to describe Wee Squeak. I remember the first time I saw a pair of these shoes. It was a few years ago when I was working at a daycare and a little girl who had just learned to walk came squeaking into the room. Everyone's faces lit up as they exclaimed how cute the shoes were. Every shoe at Wee Squeak is adorable. Not all make noise and the ones that do,...

My Pair Tree Review and Giveaway CLOSED

Posted by Robin Haws on Thursday, October 8, 2009, In : Shoes 

One reader will win a My Pair Tree!

I have a lot of shoes. Let me be more specific. I have a ton of flip flops. I have a pair of flip flops for every possible outfit I could wear. I have flip flops that I only wear in the house and some I only wear outside. I have flip flops that are casual and some that are only for a little less casual outfits. I have tall and flat flip flops. You get the idea. Where do all of these shoes end up? Usually in a pile on the floor or pi...

Uneaks Kids Sneakers CLOSED

Posted by Robin Haws on Sunday, September 27, 2009, In : Shoes 

One reader will win a pair of Uneaks sneakers!

Kids grow out of their shoes fast. If you're like me, you're sometimes left thinking about all the money spent on the shoes that are worn for only a few months. Even boys tend to have several pairs of shoes to go with all of their clothing and personality changes. Wouldn't it be great if you could have one pair of affordable shoes that would go with everything?

Take a look at the shoes from Uneaks. These sneakers have see...

Polliwalks Shoe Review and Giveaway CLOSED

Posted by Robin Haws on Friday, September 25, 2009, In : Shoes 

One reader will win a pair of Polliwalks!

One of the things that happens when you grow up is your shoes have to grow up too. It's a sad fact that adults just can't get away with wearing fun shoes. I've accepted the fact that my fun shoes have to be limited to my houseshoes, lest I face public ridicule. I've decided that my kids' shoes should be as fun and cute as possible since the years are short and they will soon have to put them away for more practical choices.

I ...

Livie and Luca Shoe Giveaway

Posted by Robin Haws on Wednesday, September 2, 2009, In : Shoes 

My daughter definitely inherited my love of shoes. Seriously, at age two, I've seen the girl pass over toys in favor of shoes. Despite the occasional mismatched pair, she seems to have fairly decent taste. One pair of shoes that we can both always agree on are her Tootles from Livie and Luca.

Aren't they cute? She and I both just adore them!

Livie and Luca shoe company was started by three moms with a passion to create shoes perfect for in...

SwitchFlops Giveaway CLOSED

Posted by Robin Haws on Sunday, July 19, 2009, In : Shoes 
One lucky reader will win a pair of SwitchFlops!!

I'm a shoe fanatic. I like them all, but the shoes I can never have enough of are flip flops. I'm obsessed. I'm always buying more of them and love when I can find a really comfy or really unique pair. When my pair of SwitchFlops arrived in the mail, I was beside myself. What women wouldn't be excited to get a package and know there's shoes inside!?! I knew these shoes would be cute, but I must say, I was surprised by ...
