FROM OFFICE TO VACATIONS—FOOTWEAR TRENDS TO FOLLOW

Published by:

Admit it, there are days you wake up and simply pick the first pair of clothes you see in your wardrobe because you are running out of time and are super exhausted. A normal working weekday unfortunately looks a lot like this for most of us. We can’t rush through similarly while choosing our footwear for the day though. What if the very first thing you spot are your bathroom slippers? The horror!

Comfort plays a major role today when it comes to deciding the right footwear. Fashion shoes that score high on the style scale and that can take us from the boardroom to the bar and on a vacation are outright winners for us. No competition at all. Do such shoes exist? Why, of course they do! You only need to know the right style to pick and where to buy them from and you are good to go on a vacation straight out of office.

FOR WOMEN

Strut around in sandals: Sleek, stylish sandals can work well with your formal office attire and are good to walk around and party in as well. Open-toed sandals mean you also get a chance to show off those polished, pedicured toenails. Pick from the fancy sandals available at Crocs, such as the Crocs Isabella Huarache W Oyster/Berry Sandal that comes in pretty marine colours. Its soft translucent straps mean lesser chances of getting blisters.

OFFICE-FRIENDLY FOOTWEAR FOR MEN AND WOMEN

Published by:

Corporate dressing has evolved over the years with boardroom fashion having become a dedicated fashion category in the clothes and accessories space. While you need to get workwear wardrobe sorted out, it is important to not ignore your workwear shoe options as well. Why not? Well, you really don’t want to wear your slippers below your crisp, ironed formal skirt now, do you?

Before we help you choose just the right work footwear according to your individual style needs, here are certain dos and don’ts you need to follow when it comes to office-friendly footwear:

  • DO smart casual dressing. If yours is a strictly corporate environment, denims will only look cool if you pair them with an equally cool pair of Oxfords.
  • DON’T go scruffy, ever! Closed shoes are a must to avoid the muck and grime while on your way to work.
  • DO comfortable work footwear. Avoid wearing high-heeled shoes that will have you swaying uncomfortably through the day. Keep it formal, keep it low.
  • DON’T overdo casual Friday. And by that we mean, leave the shower slippers home.

Now that you have these listed down, time to make a note of the different office-friendly styles that will help you nail the corporate look from head-to-toe. All the brownie points for dressing the part with none of the swollen toes or blistered feet.

FOR WOMEN

Job position: Junior to mid-level executive, needs to be on-field or running about on assignments through the day
Footwear solution: For you, comfort is of utmost priority and yes, relaxed fashion is a real thing. Ballet flats are perfect if you wish to give your corporate attire a cutesier vibe. To maintain a serious yet stylish look, opt for loafers for women. They are simple, super-comfy and cover the dos mentioned above. The Crocs Walu II Canvas W Ice Blue/Pearl White Loafer would be a nice, pleasantly-coloured addition to this section.

Crocs – the most comfortable footwear

Published by:

If you think about it, you are running about for most part of the day. In the morning you are chasing a bus or a train to reach office on time.  Once at work, you are busy running from one meeting to another, from one project to another.

Imagine doing this on a daily basis in extremely uncomfortable shoes and you really should not be surprised if you end up with blisters on your feet. There’s only one way to avoid those painful, uncalled for shoe bites. Change your shoes!

Comfort must gain priority when you are choosing footwear for yourself. But that doesn’t mean you compromise on style. Crocs footwear for men and women gives you the best of both worlds. If you didn’t already know, we give you five reasons as to why Crocs is the most comfortable and stylish footwear around:

  1. For all the space you need: Yes, your toes need space too. Crocs footwear provides ample space for your toes to fit in. The large foot room means your toes aren’t sticking uncomfortably with each other and have space to breathe, wriggle, dance and whatsoever they wish to do. Absolute freedom!
  2. Got your back: More like your ankle, but you get our point. Most Crocs shoes come with the utility ankle strap option that gives you greater support while walking. The Croslite material band keeping those sore blisters away.
  3. Material advantage: This brings us to point number three i.e. the leverage it gains from the Croslite material used in the manufacturing of Crocs footwear. It is lightweight, odour-resistant, and greatly absorbs impact to provide maximum cushioning. Run all you want!
  4. Added comforts: The speciality of each Crocs pair of shoe is the massaging heel nubs that provide that soothe the stress your feet are placed under during the course of the day.
  5. Light as a feather: Okay, calling it featherlight is just us being poetic. Essentially developed as boating shoes, its buoyant properties definitely make walking in a pair of Crocs footwear akin to walking on air. The fact that they weigh mere ounces adds weight to their credibility as being the most comfortable shoe ever! See what we did there?

If you still aren’t convinced (really?), here are some reasons why people of every age and gender will love them.

Crocs shoes for men: Comfort and rugged style – what more would you want from your footwear? Aside from classic clogs, you can choose from a wide range of sneakers, loafers, beach line shoes, etc.

6-point checklist to consider when buying kids’ footwear

Published by:

kids-crocsWhen it comes to providing for your children, nothing but the best will do, isn’t it? Definitely so! And this also includes fulfilling your child’s sartorial needs. Growing up, you become their point of reference for all things fashion and it is you who they will depend on to help make the right style choices. So you have a lot to think about when you set to shop for your little one.

Picking up clothes will be easy for you to manage—just look at the number of options available both online and offline when it comes to cute kids wear? It is often in the shoes department that you falter. If you are used to online shopping as the majority of us are, then rest assured knowing that shopping for kids’ footwear online is as reliable as it gets. How do you zero down on the best kids shoes online? Here’s a 6-point checklist you need to consider:

Odour-resistant: You know your child is going to be running, playing, jumping around and doing a host of other activities through the day in those shoes you slip onto their feet. Buying shoes that are odour-resistant are a must if you want avoid all the health and other troubles that stinky feet will bring along.

Getting the toe box right: Ventilation and the right spacing is extremely essential when you picking up a pair of shoes especially when you want to buy the best shoes for your toddlers. Foot support is a result of the big toe stabilising the natural foot arch. Go for shoes that are spacious and provide advanced toe box ventilation that will also keep your child’s feet cool and let the debris picked up trickle away easily.

Not stiff, but secure: Stiff shoes mean weakening of the foot muscles. Rather than going for sturdy, stiff shoes that will make walking and running more painful for your kid, opt for shoes that promise a secure fit. For example, shoes that with an ankle strap in child-friendly material.

Go light: You don’t want your child to feel as though the weight of the entire world is resting at their feet. Pick shoes that come in materials that are extremely lightweight and will let your child go about their activities without any inhibitions. The Croslite material is perfect for when you want your kids’ footwear to be ultra-lightweight and soft.

Footbed concerns: What’s the point of investing in a pair of stylish shoes if the footbed or sole is tough as a nut and causes your child more pain than happiness? Shoes that come with soft cushioning to give a massage-like feel are just what your prince and princess need.

Colour me bright: Your child’s footwear needs to match his/her vibrant personality.  And what better way to do this than by choosing shoes in bright colours of brick red, lime green, pink lemonade, ocean blue, sunshine yellow and the likes. Let footwear selection make your child as excited as they get when they enter a candy shop.
