Hey Dude Shoes is a super cool line of Men’s and Women’s shoes that are uber-comfortable. The company prides itself on the comfort of its shoes, and to that I can attest! My husband reviewed a pair of Hey Dude shoes last year, and he loved them. He still wears them a few nights a week and they’re still as comfortable as they were when he first purchased them!

Last May, Hey Dude only sold Men’s shoes, but said they would soon be coming out with a Women’s line. Well, they’re finally here, and I’m excited to present to you one of their female styles–the Pasione Lady!

These shoes are C.O.M.F.Y!!! First of all, there’s a thick layer of furry fluff lining the whole shoe that feels like a dream to walk on. The fluff keeps my feet super warm and snug, and I almost don’t want to wear socks with them because they feel like slippers inside! Hey Dude has managed to take the classic lug boot style–which can be fairly heavy–and make it super light; only 5 ounces! And the insole conforms to your feet, giving them cushioning and support.

I wasn’t sure if I could pull these boots off, but I think with the right outfit, anyone can make these awesome boots work–and believe me, they’re so comfy and wonderful, you will want to make them work! I only wish it was colder here in California (the “cold snap” snapped and is already gone) so I could wear these more often!

Hey Dude also sells the Abetone Lady shoe, a few other Women’s styles, and tons of Men’s styles. All of their shoes can be purchased online or through one of their Stockists (check their online map to find a store near you). Or, if you’re really lucky, you could win a pair of the Pasione Lady Shoes today!

We just got back (a few hours ago!) from a super fantastic vacation at my hubby’s family cabin in Idaho!  On the way up to the cabin, we stopped at my grandma’s house, and I commented on her sparkly clean kitchen floor, and how she must never have to sweep because she doesn’t have kids in the house and she has a cute dog to clean up the crumbs!  Its true, she said, she probably sweeps only once a month.  What?!  I HAVE to sweep up our crumby floors 3x/day!  I don’t know how my boys manage to get half their meal on the floor, but walking around barefoot is risky business around here.  So as not to step on the crumbs between sweepings (and OH how I HATE food on my feet!  Uuugghh!!), I wear a pair of Dearfoams ballet-style slippers all winter long, from sunrise to sunset, but as soon as it got warm around here, I realized these aren’t my favorite year-round slippers.  My feet were getting too warm in socks and slippers, and wearing them barefoot was still making my feet sweat.  I needed a good summer alternative–something with a TPR rubber outsole and open toe.  Of course, I turned again to Dearfoams because I knew I already loved their comfy slippers and that they fit my feet well.

I found my perfect match with these Photo Print Bow Scuff slippers.  They are so tropical and the epitome of summer!  Look at this huge cushion of comfort.  The heel wedge is nice and super thick, so I feel like I’m walking on pillows all day.

I love that I can wear these indoors and not worry about scratching our wood floor or slipping in the bathroom, and especially how I can run outside to get the mail, take out the trash, or hang out on the porch.  They are the perfect indoor/outdoor slippers that don’t look like your grandma wore them.

Because the amount of fabric across the foot looked fairly thin to me, I worried about these slipping off my feet, or having trouble staying in place, but the fabric was actually surprisingly very tight and my feet are quite secure.  The shoes stay on without flopping around or sliding off.

These are on sale at dearfoams.com for $20.40, and they have so many cute cute summer spa slippers!!  I want a pair of each!  I am completely a Dearfoams junky now, and I doubt I’ll try another brand as long as I live.  They are so affordable, and are sold in many of the stores I shop.

The last time I sat and enjoyed all 3 hours of church without getting up in the middle was the day before my son was born.  Since then, church has been an endless take-the-baby-out fest of feedings, temper tantrums, and diaper changes.  I take the kids out so as not to disturb the quiet calm in the chapel, yet I find myself sometimes contributing more noise than the baby, and with my shoes of all things!  Click, click, click, click.  I try to walk as softly as I can, but sometimes nothing will help save taking them off and walking barefoot.

I love the sound of heels on pavement, but there are certain occasions where a quiet shoe is needed.  Now could there be a more perfect name for a brand of quiet shoes than “Ssh-oes“?  How great, right?  Well, they stand up to their name, let me tell ya.  I was more excited than Christmas morning when a box of two pairs of Ssh-oes arrived.
IMG_4505
I didn’t know what shoes I’d be sent, and my first thought when I saw they were ankle strap shoes was, “Oh no!  I hope they are tight enough!” Having skinny ankles makes it hard to find straps with enough holes and a secure fit, so I usually avoid them, but these are totally great!  The fit was snug and exactly right on the first hole.  These are the Stacy shoes in black, sold for $89.00.  PS–I’m a true size 6.5, and these in size 7 were a PERFECT fit, so order a half size up.IMG_4486I think ordering shoes online without trying them on is VERY scary, but this brand must have been tested tried and true because they are instantly comfortable and well-fitting.  I didn’t need a day or two to break these black heels in, and three hours at church while roaming the halls with a baby and a bag was nothin.  These heels are so slick!  I think they look very ‘designer’, and are so lightweight.  They are made with blister-free lycra and leather lining, and I was SO IMPRESSED with the two extra heel stops included in the box.  What an unexpected surprise that will hopefully avoid a trip to the tailor’s when I wear these out after months of use!
IMG_4493
Next up are the Rita shoes, sold for $69.00.  See, I really was JUST thinking about how I needed to find some cute summer wedges, and almost hit “purchase” on a Payless order.  So glad I didn’t.  These are exactly what I had in mind for some fun outfits.
IMG_4499
Now let’s get back to the “comfortable” feature.  I have several really gorgeous pairs of shoes that I don’t wear for more than a 5-min photoshoot because they hurt like a bear.  I could wear either of these pairs all day.  They are truly designed well, and extremely lightweight.
IMG_4502
I am happy to report that these are every bit as quiet and comfortable as they claim to be.  Everywhere we walked, I kept pointing out to my husband how loud his shoes were and how utterly silent mine were.  On the way out the door, I kept tip-toeing on our hardwood floor so as not to bother our downstairs neighbors, then remembered I could put my heels down if I wanted to because they don’t make a sound.

Ssh-oes Spring collection is full of some fun colors and styles!  I would wear any of these and love them.  Cute, huh!  Go check them out!
