What woman doesn’t like shoes? I know before I had kiddos shoe shopping was one of the things I indulged in all the time – probably more than I should have, hehe. But now that the girls are here it’s rare that I get a new pair of shoes instead I’m constantly buying shoes for their ever growing feet! But I found some shoes and sandals that are just awesome and would make a great Mother’s Day gift for that momma in your life who may not be able to splurge on shoes for herself all the time anymore.
Those shoes and sandals are made by Havaianas. Havaianas stands for style, comfort, affordable luxury, and positive energy. As a part of this positive energy Havaianas believes in social and environmental responsibility and so they participate in many programs and contribute to organizations ensuring they do their part to support society and our planet.
And now to the shoes!! As I mentioned they sell both the Havaianas womens sandals collection as well as shoes, but I decided to go with the Origine Eco Espadrille in acqua. I will be honest with you I hate my toes… absolutely despise them and so I don’t really like to wear open toe shoes, but finding a comfy casual pair of summery shoes with closed toes is near impossible. That is until I found these shoes. And oh my gosh – I L.O.V.E. these shoes. I decided to go with these specific shoes because they are eco-friendly being made of jute which is grown along side the Amazonian River. And so they don’t require any fertilizer or pesticides to make. I absolutely adore the stitching that holds the fabric to the sole and they are just so stinkin comfy. I seriously wear these shoes constantly. I don’t even care if they match my outfit, hehe. Unlike many slip on shoes these stay on even when chasing after my crazy kiddos when out at the park or playing in the yard at home. Plus even when my feet are a lil pudgy and my ankles start to swell – thank you pregnancy – they still feel great! In my Origine Eco Espadrille’s I can be trendy, environmentally conscious, and I won’t break the bank – perfection for a momma.
Now for those of you who like to show off your tootsies Havaianas has a huge selection of sandals in different styles, colors, ect. You can even design your very own custom sandals so you can be truly unique! Or perhaps design a pair as a Mother’s Day gift in your momma’s favorite color!
An interesting fact: Did you notice the textured rice pattern on the foot-bed? This is the same on all Havaianas and is one of their unmistakable features which dates back to the first pair of Havaianas that were made in 1962. They were inspired by the Zori, typical Japanese sandals which are made of fabric straps and rice straw soles. Bet ya didn’t know that!
