Love Your Soles With Rio Soul & a Giveaway

There are two things most people who know me know about me. They are that I love shoes and I also love the color pink. When you combine the two I am in shoe heaven.

As much as I love shoes, they don't often love me back. In fact, it’s pretty hard for me to find a comfortable pair, and that's mostly because I have very flat feet. It also doesn't help that I deal with arthritis pain in my feet. What that combination equals, is that even a small amount of extra padding or arch support makes my feet hurt.

Fortunately for me there is a lovely new minimalist trend in footwear. And with the idea to 'Free Your Feet' Rio Soul has made the perfect shoe for me! My Rio Soul's are the most adorable and comfortable shoes I have ever seen for walking and yoga! In fact my Rio Soul shoes are so comfortable I have been wearing them solely since the first time I tried them on. They are my new everyday shoe of choice.

I have the Chiclete which is a lovely bright pink, with a yellow design, and red highlights. The beautiful color combination of the Chiclete has been noticed everywhere I wear them.

Have you ever found shoes that make you feel like dancing? That is exactly how these shoes make me feel. In fact, as soon as I put them on I feel like a workout princess. I wouldn't be surprised if I've walked further and stretched longer just due to the extra comfort alone. Never-mind the boost I get from knowing I have on fabulous looking shoes.

The sole is super flexible, making them perfect for yoga and extra comfortable for daily wear. If you look through the pictures, you will see how easily I can bend the sole. It also gets great traction making them perfect for yoga or dance classes. It feels like the shoe moves with me, giving my foot the protection it needs without any ridged restraint.

I have sweaty feet and I love that the fabric is breathable, allowing my feet to stay nice and dry even when I am working hard.

I simply adore that these shoes are functional, comfortable and fashionable. You can see the soul of Rio in the vibrant color combinations and the feel energetic spirit when you slip into these shoes. If you need a great new pair of shoes I highly recommend you browse around Rio Soul and find the pair or pairs that speaks to you.
