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 I always thought.

Sure, I have adorable shoes. Then I've got my comfortable shoes. The comfy shoes are certainly cute but, they aren't winning me any fashion awards! I don't spend much money on my high fashion shoes because, honestly, they just don't get worn that often. It's very rare that I'll be in need of shoes and not have to tend to my motherly duties. All the while, my heart breaks because, I'll be honest, I'm a shoe fanatic. I'm sure I could have continued half-heartedly compiling my comfy shoe collection while sacrificing the soar a woman's heart gets when she hears the words, "Oh, where did you get those shoes?!".

Until now.

OKA b. shoes use the principals of reflexology through the massaging foot bed on each shoe. The material used, created through Microplast process, gives a shoe that is extremely cushioned while also being antimicrobial, waterproof and washable. Let me stop right here and tell you that until you are a mom, you don't understand how wonderful it is to have an antimicrobial shoe. My shoes have had some of the ickiest stuff on them and, inevitably, any shoe in a household will end up in a child's mouth at some point.

When I first got my OKA b. shoes I was ready to give them the ultimate test in my life. None of my other "fashion" shoes can stand up to a full day at home with the kids followed by a family trip to the grocery store. By the end of the night, not only was I soaring from the compliments I'd received that day, I wasn't anywhere close to needing or wanting to take off my shoes. My feet felt as comfortable as if I'd worn my house-shoes all day. I will also say that aside from the obvious fashionable look of these shoes and the utter comfort, the price is something that a busy mom will love as well. To be able to purchase an affordable pair of shoes that you can rock from daytime chores to the nighttime dinner date with the hubby, is a dream come true for a mom looking for a little fashion in her life. Plus, let's not forget that there are two great styles for men as well! The Camden style for men is so perfect for my husband that I need to look no further for what he'll be getting for his birthday this year.

Not only do I recommend these shoes to my family and friends (and every woman who stops me around town), I recommend them to anyone and everyone who is a woman or has a woman in their life who could use a rockin' pair of shoes. There are so many styles to choose from but, if you aren't sure, OKA b. makes it easy by offering Gift Certificates.
