Taos Cabin Boots Are Cool

Happy Feet Plus - Taos Cabin Boots are Cool

Back in September I told y’all that we just started carrying Taos footwear.

The line has proven to be pretty successful for us. One of our owners, Jane, really loves the Cabin boot. Jane’s from Canada and rarely gets to wear boots here in Florida, but she just couldn’t help herself when she saw this one from Taos.

The Cabin boot has a cool, relaxed, rolled-down look to it. Jane says that they are as comfortable as wearing slippers. The insole is easily removed so you can use your own special orthotics or other footbeds. (Jane likes the Birko-Sport 2-part footbed.)

You do have to hurry, though. Supplies are limited. If you want a pair you better act quickly.

Great footwear at great prices. What a great deal! Stop by a Happy Feet Plus store near you and save.

Cool Weather Squeeze

Happy Feet Plus - Cool Weather Squeeze

 

Do your feet seem to hurt more in the cold weather months? It could be that with the transition from summer sandals to winter shoes and boots that you are squeezing your feet into constrictive, and painful, footwear. If you are, there is a greater chance of aggravating your bunions, or other foot pains and ailments.

All summer long your feet were happy spending a lot of time in sandals, especially if they were supportive sandals like Birkenstock or Finn Comfort. With the cooler temperatures, you’ve got to switch to closed footwear. If your feet are hurting more nowadays, take a look at the toe box width and the arch support in your everyday shoes.

A narrow toe box, especially in a pointy-toe shoe, will aggravate an existing bunion or start you on the path towards a painful bunion. Shoes or boots without any (or enough) arch support may allow plantar fasciitis pain (in your heel) to develop. You may also feel pain in the ball of your foot. This could be as a result of wearing high heels and stressing the metatarsal area, or simply because your footwear has insufficient metatarsal support.

Relief can be found. Look for footwear with a wide toe box that will not squeeze your toes. Also look for footwear with great arch support, especially in the medial and metatarsal arch areas.

Several closed shoe options exist in the Footprints line as well as in Finn Comfort, and Taos. Clogs are a great choice if you need room for your toes to move and breathe. Birkenstock, Dansko, Finn Comfort, Footprints, Tatami, and Taos offer dressy and casual clogs.

Great footwear at great prices. What a great deal! Stop by a Happy Feet Plus store near you and save.

Comfort Gone Cute

Happy Feet Plus - Taos Footwear

Have you heard of Taos footwear? Probably not.

Taos is a small manufacturer that has been around for only about 5 years, but during that time they have made a big name for themselves as an independent label featuring comfort casual footwear.

With no fanfare, last week we began offer Taos footwear to our on-line customers. The response has been unexpectedly outstanding. So what is it that makes these shoes, sandals, clogs, and boots so different?

Taos describes them as “comfort gone cute”. Yes, they have style features that are different than most of our other brands – more about that later. Most important for us though is what goes on under your feet.

The Taos footbed meets the Happy Feet Plus “seal of approval”. It has a strong metatarsal arch, a moderate medial arch and is firmly cushioned. The sandals also feature a toe bar that strengthens the feet as you walk and helps your toes grip the footbed.

When you browse the 20+ styles of Taos footwear we offer you’ll notice a mix of conservative to funky. The Tempo sandal features adjustable straps in a familiar walking style. The Bungie Jump shoe, on the other hand, is one of the funkiest shoes we sell. Instead of straps or laces it does indeed use bungie cords to keep the soft leather upper comfortably secured.

You’re not going to find Taos footwear in your big department stores or on-line super sites. But you will find them here, at HappyFeet.com. We love them. You will too.

Great footwear at great prices. What a great deal! Stop by a Happy Feet Plus store near you and save.
