Stomping around in @JackLily_shoes

A very special post from my sister in Edmonton!

When little feet start pitter-pattering, it’s time for shoe shopping! Scott started walking just before his first birthday, right as spring arrives and we want to get outside. In choosing his first ‘real’ footwear, I wanted shoes that are light but well built, with good ankle support that will help those toddling steps before confident strides and eventually full-out sprints. There are several ‘pre-walkers’ that’s ideal, except my son’s got big feet. His first pair of runners were size 5.5.

We came across Jack and Lily and decided to try them. There is a wide selection in styles and colours and we picked the Argyle Whites. When they arrived in the mail, I was delighted first of all with the cute little box they come in, complete with a clear window and a handle on top. The shoes themselves are fantastic. Lightweight, with a sturdy yet thin sole, these little guys are well made works of art.

Instead of the single digit sizing, Jack and Lily has a range of months sizing, much like kids clothing. For us, the shoes were a little big for now, so we will have to save them for a while til Scott grows into them. I am curious to see how well the soles hold up on slippery surfaces as it does not have many ridges that works as anti-skidding.

We will let you know in a couple months!

Aetrex Concept Flagship Store Grand Opening & VIP Party

On Thursday, June 2, I took off my super uncomfortable $10 flats and got my feet scanned at Aetrex’s new flagship store in Englewood, N.J.

If you like shoes from GEOX or ECCO, you’ll definitely enjoy the shoes here at Aetrex. They’re very practical and ridiculously comfortable. If you’re going to be walking around New York City all day long, you better invest in a pair — it’s totally worth it.

But this store is way more than just a shoe store. “The store will feature state-of-the-art interactive technology that will bring people one step closer to a healthy and active lifestyle by matching them with products designed for their specific needs,” said Larry Schwartz, CEO, Aetrex. This awesome Aetrex’s iStep Wave machine shows you if you have flat, arched, narrow or wide feet. In my case, I was slightly narrow. It measures foot size and determines arch type and pressure points in less than 30 seconds.

If you’re a shoe fanatic like me, you’ll really appreciate this extra factor. Aetrex is also renowned for its over-the-counter Lynco Orthotics, the world’s #1 foot orthotic system. No more custom-made orthotics made only for athletes or the elderly. This is available for everyone!

Check out these seriously comfortable loafers I got! Visit www.Aetrex.com to get your own!
