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.
