Walking My Way to Fitness With Therafit

We’ve talked a lot about goals since the new year started. I have pretty well defined fitness goals. I even have them broken down into smaller monthly goals. One of my most important goals is to get to ten thousands steps a day. I would like to increase by one thousand a month which leaves me two months to play with since my health isn't always cooperative with me. That is a lot of steps and the most important thing to me in helping achieve that goal is a good pair of walking shoes.

The first brand that came to mind was Therafit. I practically live in my Therafit Deborah sneakers and was really excited to see that Therafit offers a walking shoe, the Renee. You may remember that Therafit builds their shoes in a way that makes them not only super comfortable but they also help with my back by improving the way I stand. It really goes beyond just being a comfy shoe. This is the kind of shoe you want if you are going to be walking a lot or standing for extended periods.

There are really so many reasons to love these shoes! Like before I’ll start at the top. Unlike the Deborah, which is mesh, the Renee has a stylish leather upper. The attention to details and accents on the upper is really very nice. It isn’t just a plain leather walking shoe, it looks fabulous and has some grey and silver accenting as well as white. I love the reflective logo on the tongue. I’ve taken some close-up pictures so you can see just how nice it is.

It has a shock absorbing, EVA, removable insole which has heel and arch support. I was pleasantly surprised that this didn't bother my feet because I have pretty flat feet and tend to not like padding. I really love that you have the option to take it out if it does annoy your foot in any way. It has polyurethane gel insert comfort pads between the EVA insole and the next insole which is made from cosmo fabric.

Next is the EVA midsole and the shock absorbing wedge. This is the part that makes it adjustable. In this wedge there are three adapters  You can leave them all or take as many or all of them depending on your preferences. They are really easy to remove you just firmly press from the inside and the rod will easy pop out. To put them back in you just push them in from the outside. It really is that easy, I tried it in every arrangement and decided that I like it with them all, which came as a surprise to me since I typically prefer less support.

The outsole is rubber and has specially designed tread. On the front section of the shoe it had traverse tread to give you better push off and on the back of the shoes it has tread that reduces slide. These soles are fantastic for me because as you know I am clumsy and any extra grip is always welcomed. The shoe also has Aegis microbe shield which helps control odor, stains, and deterioration.

Now that you know why they feel so good take a peek on the Therafit site at how good they look! I love the color varieties and as you know I am typically pink girl so I was really tempted by the lovely pink and white Alexa. I know they are really that comfortable and I will want to wear them with everything since my walking goals are so big so I decided on the beautiful white Renee which would go with a wider variety of clothes. I may still need the pink pair, I mean really a girl can’t have too many shoes, especially when they are this comfy!

  60. Hi girls. It's hard to chose just one pair. I had foot surgery almost 2 years ago and they still hurt a quality pair of shoes like #Therafit would make a big difference. I love the Carly Orange sandals.

    Thanks for the chance to win.

  86. My choice would be the Renee walking shoe for my wife.

    ReplyDelete
  87. The initial choice is the Tiffany Black Sandal as it would be easier to get on and off my feet, and it would go great with the outfit recently given to me (as a birthday gift). Moreover they would be something that I would show everyone I know.... being I havent been able to afford a new pair of shoes. The very fact that these are available in my size is all the more reason I hope to be selected the winner!
