Women’s Boots That Are Fashionable Yet Comfy

I always look forward to boot season! I just LOVE a cute sweater paired with jeans and an awesome pair of boots. However, I have struggled to find boots that are supportive, look good on my feet/wide calves and that I can spend a whole day in without foot pain. Enter Aetrex women’s boots! I love all the attention to detail, not just in how they look, but in how they fit and feel on your feet. I’m going to share some of my favorite styles with you this Autumn.

The Kara Ankle Riding Boot

The Kara is a top winter and fall ankle boot with a comfortable stretch sweater design and functional side buckles for adjustability. This boot helps to align your knees, hips and back with built in Lynco® orthotic support while customizing to your foot with slow recovery memory foam cushioning. It keeps your feet odor free and prevents bacteria growth with anti-microbial technology and has soft fabric linings for comfort. I also love the side zipper, heel tab and side buckles for adjustability and ease of putting on and taking off. Most importantly, there is a removable foot bed so you can use these shoes with your Aetrex orthotics as well!

Chelsea Tall Riding Boot

Riding boots are a must-have for cooler weather, and the Chelsea combines fashion and comfort in an effortless style. I love how the sweater design in the back of the boot accommodates wider calves and provides a comfortable, unique look! This boot helps to align your knees, hips and back with built in Lynco® orthotic support while customizing to your foot with slow recovery memory foam cushioning. These also have a removable foot bed so you can use these shoes with your Aetrex orthotics as well!

Tessa Short Sweater Boot

The Tessa is a snug ankle boot with flexible sweater material that accommodates your movements to maximize comfort. The side-zip provides easy on/off wear making it great for casual Fall days. Featuring the Aetrex “Healthy 3” – Lynco Arch Support, Memory Foam Cushioning and Anti-microbial technology to keep your feet healthy and comfortable. I love that these are lightweight because of the cork/EVA midsole, making them good for a long day on your feet. The soft tumbled leather uppers not only look luxurious, but feel so soft, and look great without squeezing your feet.

Become the Ultimate Spring Jogger

By: Larysa DiDio, Guest Blogger for Aetrex

The temps are warming up just in time for your cabin fever and spring fever to merge!  Studies show that exercising outdoors not only burns more calories, but also boosts your mood like crazy.  Jogging is one of the best activities to help shed excess winter weight in the fastest amount of time.  Here are six tips to becoming the best (Spring) jogger you can be:

  1. Dress in Layers.It may look warm outside from your living room, but looks can be deceiving.  Chances are the temps are still a little bit nippy and the wind may be whipping.  To keep yourself from running back inside as soon as your feet hit the concrete, be sure to bundle up in easy to remove layers.  Usually a light thermal under layer, a breathable heavier layer and a wind resistant shell are what you need.  You’ll get warm fast and when you do, you’ll be able to easily tie a layer around your waist until your cool down at the end.
  1. Wear Proper Footwear. If you live in colder climates, the onset of spring doesn’t necessarily mean the absence of slippery spots.  Also, winter weather along with salt and ice may have left the running terrain less than ideal.  Watch out for residual ice and pot holes, and make sure that your sneakers are snugly fitting and are supportive.  My favorite brand of sneaker is Aetrex.  Their sneakers contain an orthotic footbed for support, balance, and alignment and memory foam cushioning for comfort. Plus, Aetrex shoes have advanced technology that help avoid any smelly odors.
  1. Wear Sunscreen and Sunglasses.  Even though it’s still a bit chilly, the sun and wind can wreak havoc on your skin and eyes.  Protect your skin with hypoallergenic sunscreen that doesn’t clog your pores and protects against both UVA and UVB rays.  Be sure that your product has an SPF of over 30.  Additionally, be sure to wear lightweight, protective sunglasses that give you protection from harmful sun rays, and also from biting winds and debris on roads and trails.
  1. Go When it’s Warmest.  I usually recommend that runners head outdoors first thing in the morning to keep their motivation high and establish a schedule.  However, when it’s a bit chilly and dark, I recommend checking out the forecast and go when it’s the warmest and the brightest.  It’ll help you enjoy your run so much more!
  1. Start Slow.  Be kind to your body.  Start with a nice easy jog of one to three miles, adding some bits of walking if necessary.  If you haven’t been running outdoors (or even on a treadmill), be sure to have fun and start light.  Gradually get yourself back into it by adding 10% total mileage per week.
  1. Motivate yourself With an Event. Everyone needs a goal or a gentle shove and sometimes, signing up for a race is what your body and head need for motivation!  Google local races and plan on training for two months before the big day.  Enlist the help of a friend or family member to help keep yourself motivated.  Need some help with training?  Check out Couch To 5K .

Aetrex Healthy Three – I’m loving it!

L2205W

As a health enthusiast, it always baffles me when people take their foot health for granted. Our feet are such an important part of our body. We depend on them to get us where we need to go, and as anyone who has ever had a foot issue knows, when your feet aren’t happy, you aren’t happy. This is why I think it’s so important to treat our feet with the love and respect they deserve!

To me, supporting our feet with proper footwear is essential to good foot health. If you are squeezing your feet into unsupportive, ill-fitting shoes, you are surely creating serious future foot problems that can be inconvenient as well as uncomfortable or even painful.

I love that Aetrex’s shoes feature the “Healthy Three.” I absolutely adore my Lynco orthotics! The fact that they are now incorporated into the footbed of the Aetrex shoes is simply awesome! They help to keep my body in alignment and my arches properly supported. I also love the super-comfy memory foam that cushions my foot and provides a customized fit. Last but not least, the anti-microbial technology maintains a healthy environment for my feet and helps to keep the “stinkies” away.

I know that when I have on comfortable shoes, it makes it that much easier to get through my busy day. When my feet are bothering me, it just makes everything I do seem like a chore. I love that these shoes help my feet feel awesome AND that they look super-cute! It’s a win-win!
