Trust a shoe store’s employees to know more about shoes than you’d ever want to know. Here at, we look, read and hear about shoes all day long. We’ve become submersed in the culture of healthy shoe options and of course we practice what we preach. After studying every item we sell, we buy products from our site just like you do. Here is Part 1 of our favorite shoes that we’ve bought from our favorite store.

Rich, CEO:
The Sole Sports Flip flip-flips are one of my favorites. Not only do they look good, but they are extremely comfortable with their not-too-high arch dijon-blacksupport and cushioned heel support.
Finn Comfort men’s Dijon is the most comfortable casual walking shoe I have ever owned. With their soft footbeds and ample room I can wear them all day, even on hard floors at conventions.

Barbara, Pedorthist/Customer Service:
The Cogent Roxie’s double rockers equate to double comfort in my book.  Differing from other shoes offered and they lack the arch support I so dearlyroxie-sky-blue love, the Cogent rocker offers another approach to cutting back on foot fatigue. Instead of relying on just the arch support in other shoes, these rockers help spread the body weight effectively from heel strike to toe off, offering a bit of welcome propulsion.
The Naot Folk Mary Jane appeals to my Granola side, while offering me the luxury of a very well made shoe I wouldn’t hesitate to wear to any function.

John, Content Writer/SEO Specialist:
I purchased my first pair of Aetrex socks after I wrote about them on our website.  In a way I wanted to see if what I read about them was true – Are aetrex-copper-athletic-socksthese socks really the healthiest socks I’ll ever wear?  Well, that would be a big fat YES!  Aetrex socks are definitely the healthiest socks I’ve ever worn.  They feature Copper Sole Technology™, which removes 99% of the fungi, bacteria and odor in the socks.  After the first time I wore my low cut Aetrex athletic copper socks I noticed I had no foot odor whatsoever.  My feet were dry too because they also come with Moisture Guard™ – a feature that wicks moisture away.  And since these socks are manufactured with CUPRON™ yarn, my feet look and feel healthier than they ever have before.  I LOVE AETREX SOCKS!!!
Cloud Nine men’s sheepskin moccasin slippers are the real deal.  They are SUPER comfortable.  I swear I feel like taking a nap soon after I slip them on because the sheepskin lining is so soft and pillow-like.   I bought thecloud-nine-moccasin-chocolate chocolate colored pair because when I have company over it’s nice to wear comfortable slippers that are somewhat stylish.  To enhance my comfortable experience even more I decided to add arch support insoles, and now they’re even more comfortable to wear.  Another thing that’s nice is the fact that because my Cloud Nine slippers are made with sheepskin, they’re thermostatic, which means feet stay warm in the winter and cool in the summer – I got my slippers a few months ago when it was winter and now it’s spring and I swear that’s completely true!  You can’t go wrong with Cloud Nine sheepskin slippers.  Every time I put them on I literally feel like I’m walking on cloud nine!

Chris, Warehouse Manager:
orthaheel-kiwi-blackThe Orthaheel Kiwi is a great slide.  The mesh lining keeps my feet cool and the foot bed is very supportive.  I can wear them all day and my feet don’t get sore or tired.
