Earth Shoes - Fashion meets Fitness

We all know that just because a shoe looks good, doesn't mean it's exactly doing your poor feet any favors by wearing them. What if there was a way to wear fantastically chic footwear and do your body good by burning more calories with every step?

Earth footwear brilliantly creates shoes that are designed to optimize the everyday walking experience. How did they do that you ask? It's known as the Kalsø® Negative Heel Technology® – a unique inclined sole that positions the toes 3.7º higher than the heels (basically a negative heel, if you can picture that). The slight angle shifts weight subtly back over the heels, and can help strengthen and tone the body while also burning calories.

But what if you're like me, and you're not concerned with burning calories at the present moment because you're pregnant and sore (emphasis on sore).


Being pregnant, one of the best things we can do for our body is wear comfortable shoes with proper arches. Because of the negative heel technology, Earth shoes will help our growing and shifting bodies stay aligned, keep pressure off our knees, ankles, and aching back.

Honestly, I've had a lot of back issues during all three of my pregnancies, and I believe wearing Earth shoes during these last few months have made a tremendous positive impact on the way my back feels. I've been wearing the style Aria ($119) because they look great and much stress off my back.

I'll admit it, I used to be one of those girls who would sacrifice comfort for style when it came to footwear. I now realize that is something I don't have to do. Thanks to Earth Footwear, I have plenty of options to look great and have happy feet at the same time! I already have my eye on the Zenith Boot ($149) for my next Earth purchase.
