Sometimes I wonder what kinds of shoes I owned as a kid. My mom had cowboy boots that I loved (and wore whenever possible) and a pair of clogs I happily borrowed when I was in about 6th grade. That’s about all I remember though. Around the acreage, I was almost always barefoot. Why not, right? My feet were used to being free. I could run or walk across our country driveway or the gravel drive that separated our home from our cousins next door. Running across gravel was imperative to being able to flee from predators when playing tag, Bloody Murder or Kick the Can. It was a different time, a different location. We didn’t have to worry about broken glass or nails or anything like that. Just the occasional thistle.
Those were the good ol’ days. Maybe it’s because I’m older and not running about the yard, but it is seldom that I am barefoot. So I might as well find shoes (or really cute boots) to outfit my feet.
Once again, Lugz comes through with some variety for my shoe rack. Although most of the Lugz footwear we featured have fallen into the category of boots, they do offer other options including comfortable sneakers. I spent the fall, winter and spring wearing my favorite pair of boots but this past week, I finally felt confident packing away the winter jacks, snow pants and heavy gear. My snow boots were part of that project, but my Lugz Sophia boots get to stay in my closet for days/nights when sandals won’t work. Of course, I need something in the middle of those two. I wear Saucony and Asics that are dedicated for fitness activities along with a few pair of older shoes that have seen better days. None of those fall into the cute nor fashionable category. Lugz came through with something that I think fits both of those: ZROCS, a comfortable, sporty, casual Oxford sneaker.
There were a few different colors to choose from but I opted for white with raspberry accents. Currently on the website they only have Mulberry and Blue accents. Most of my adult life, I’ve worn professional (read: dark) colors and I’m finally at a point that I want to break that cycle. That’s one of the reasons I opted for pink boots. They’re festive and brighten a mood. These raspberry (pink) shoes are much more subtle but still convey that playful feel.
Plus, they are comfortable. But I haven’t met a pair of Lugz footwear that isn’t. While most of the time I’m wearing sandals now, it’s nice to have a non-sandal option besides my running shoes. Simple. Classic. Comfortable. Lugz hasn’t let me down.
Scott picked up a new pair for himself as well. He has more variety in his closet than I do, opting for a better selection of colors and styles. He decided on a pair of Lugz Court Classic shoes. This low-top canvas sneaker compliments a pair of golf or khaki shorts and dresses them up in a way that sandals cannot. Are they comfortable? Of course. Scott hasn’t met a pair of Lugz that aren’t either.
While I’m very conservative with where I choose to wear new shoes, Scott has felt confident wearing his new Lugz to places like Walt Disney World and a weekend trip to Chicago. We are so happy with their products that we’re thrilled to be able to offer a pair to one of you! Enter using the giveaway widget and remember to come back daily for additional chances to win!
