For the new year, Naturalizer is doing something that we’re calling “New year, new you, new…feet.” Naturalizer’s reflexologist (and mother of three), Michelle Ebbin (photo below), knows a thing or two about being a busy mom on her feet. We wanted to reach out to Mom’s and encourage them to take care of a part of their body they don’t often pay attention to. Michelle has worked with clients such as mommy Salma Hayek, devoted wife Ashley Judd and proud father Peter Gabriel (amongst other fab a-listers).
When selecting a shoe, you should be able to walk for at least 15 minutes without discomfort or pressure to any part of the feet. Even if you live in heels, you should be able to feel balanced and stable enough so that you are not carrying all of your body weight on the balls of your feet. Balance ensures that your core is stable and energy circulation can flow easily. Stability promotes stress relief and improved posture. Every woman knows how annoying sweaty, sliding feet can be. And when your feet can’t breathe, your energy can’t flow. Find shoes with a breathable lining. By keeping your feet cool, and comfortable, you can relieve and prevent energy blockages in the feet. Hard, clunky shoes are more than just ugly, they can affect your circulation. The lighter the weight and the softer the cushioning, the less pressure on your feet which means better circulation. The 2010 shoe mantra – NO BREAKING IN: Flexibility means no “breaking-in” period. Supportive, lightweight shoes lessen the impact of gravity, which can wreak havoc on your feet and your entire body. Buy shoes that feel good straight out of the box.
I had the chance to check a pair of the new N5 Series. i picked the adorable Lockhart. The Naturalizer Lockhart pumps add a modern look to your wardrobe. Textile or leather upper in a dress pump style with a peep toe. Decorative buckle and o-ring detail at the vamp. Smooth lining, features N5 Comfort Elements. Non-slip outsole. 2 inch heel. I love that these shoes can be worn with dresses or with jeans. Wear them to a business meeting or a night on the town with your girlfriends ok… or your Husband. My mind is on next weekend in LA with my friends having fun and enjoying our 20’s!
