Swoosh. Swoosh. Swoosh.
Oh don’t mind me, friends, that’s just the noise of my feet waving their white flag of surrender to all the insanity I’ve already put them through this summer–and it’s only the first day of July. Truth told, the rest of me might be waving that flag right along with my feet, as these intense days are indeed rather intense and Mommy may be feeling a tad cranky-tired from all the fun together time, but another story for another time…
My feet. You see, as far as seasons go, summer is pretty demanding on the peds. There is the whole no-shoes bit, with bumpy driveway gravel, hot sand and roughed up grass. The constant battle against cracked heels and the endless attempts to pedicure-up toes with a pretty polish. Add up lots of park runs, swing pushing, pool swimming, and the unified commitment my children and the dog make to jumping on my baby toes at least 16 times each hour and you have yourself a summer in the life of feet.
It’s a wonder they haven’t up and walked out on me, really. I feel horrible for them, I do.
So when Bzees introduced their shoes to me, they had me at their tagline, “light feels right.” Something light and refreshing for my tired soles? Yes, please.
And then Bzees explained more, “Filled with magical unicorn down, Bzees Cloud Technology is designed to feel, well, like a cloud…weightless, energized and free.” I laughed at their fun humor, my feet cried in relief, and together, we were completely sold.
What does Cloud Technology actually mean?
The Mom of the Year answer: My Bzees arrived, I put them on and wore them for five minutes. I was so amazed, I took them off and made my 13 yr. old Mother’s Helper put them on. She is the coolest 13 yr. old in the history of the world, so she didn’t bat an eye and fully agreed that they were blissful. Bzees are so incredible they demand to be shared.
The official answer: there is an air-infused outsole (micro-cellular air bubbles trapped within that enables them to be lightweight, extremely soft and bouncy), dynamic stretch uppers (a dynamic fitting stretch upper material over/across the top of your foot that enables your foot to move freely with support), free-foamTM footbeds (specially blended micro-cellular polymer foam that delivers high resiliency without compacting and creating a low pressure walking experience that’s like walking on a cloud), and THEY ARE MACHINE WASHABLE.
Really. I know. I’ll let that last point sink in. Kids’ dripping ice cream or those horrid melty red ice pops? No match for Bzees. You can wash them, mom!
As Bzees explains, their shoes are “the simple and stylish footwear choice to add a spring in your step through your day’s highs and lows. Easy-to-wear and easy-to-wash, they’re your ideal companion for everyday reality: all that’s unexpected, whimsical, and downright messy in life.”
Let me break this down: we moms are horridly rough on our feet. Bzees has created stylish, fun options that feel like a dream and are okay to throw in the wash after our kids work their worst on them. In short, they are a miracle.
Even cooler? One pair is up for grabs to one of YOU, readers. Any in-stock pair of your choice! Enter through the Rafflecopter widget below. As long as you are 18 or older and live in the continental United States, you are eligible! Giveaway will close on 7/8/15 at 5:30am ET.
