Fashion and Comfort found in Earth Footwear

Fashion and Comfort found in Earth Footwear
This post was created as part of the Earth Footwear #WalkYourWorld Campaign, for which I am a financially compensated blogger. The opinions are my own and based on my own experience.

You know you are getting older when you start looking for shoes based on comfort more than fashion. Since I turned 40, not only has my body changed, but I have also been having issues with my feet. No longer can I wear totally flat, archless-but-fashionable shoes all day. Those days are gone. I now look for comfort and color thanks to Earth Footwear.


In my search for a cute pair of black flats, I grew frustrated as nothing quite fit my foot correctly—or if they fit, they were not comfortable. I chose to try the Pilot shoes from Earth Brands, a new shoe in their fall collection. Since they were a Mary-Jane style, I knew they would stay on my feet if too large. Just look at the description on their website; it had me intrigued.


“The essential update to the timeless mary-jane with rich burnishing, laser-cut strap details and a petite metal accent for an extra dash of style. .

  • Premium leather upper with glove-soft leather lining
  • Exclusive comfort footbed cushions your foot from heel to toe
  • Exclusive contoured comfort design supports your foot from heel to toe
  • Contoured arch support for all-day comfort”

I have a narrow heel, so my first concern was whether I would slip out of them. Nope! It was as if I had found my Cinderella slipper—my foot fit perfectly in the size 8 regular (my normal size). With just a slight heel, they will complement both pants and a skirt.


The design on the Mary Jane flap is just subtle enough not to stand out, while creating a unique look. They even come in four fall colors, so I might buy another color to add to my collection. Earth Brands features an expansive line of comfortable shoes for the everyday. The Earth® styles include dress shoes for work, casual shoes for after-work, and just about everything else. Women can’t have enough shoes. Every Earth® style features a cushioned footbed to distinguish and deliver shoes with comfort!


I spent an entire day wearing my Pilot shoes, and my feet were happy.


Now that I have experienced the comfort and craftsmanship of Earth Brand shoes, I am excited to order a pair of booties for the fall. Not only do they make good shoes, but they also give back by planting a tree in rural communities around the world for each pair of shoes sold.

I’ve been looking for a favorite company to get shoes good for my feet that are attractive – wow does this site fit the bill!!! I want to tell everyone young, too, how much it is not good to wear those heels, or even “flat” flats – just wear them for a few hours you won’t be walking, but other than that, get nice shoes like this you will be glad you did!
