The best mom shoes may differ based on your age, profession, as well as the stage that your children are in. If you are a stay at home mom with young kids like us, the best mom shoes would be those that could serve different purposes.
Tips for Choosing the Best Mom Shoes
Stay at home moms have different shoe requirements than working moms. Thankfully, we don’t need to wear closed or high-heeled shoes that are often required in corporate set ups. But we do need the best mom shoes that can cope with our fast-paced lifestyle.
If you have youngsters, especially from kinder school to grade school, you will need shoes that can live up to your lifestyle. At this point, a stay at home moms’ routine revolves mainly with preparing food, grocery errands, driving the kids to school and practices, and even just the park or the playground.
You need a pair of shoes that give you comfort for long walks and even flexibility and protection for times when you need to dash or sprint after your child.
While comfort is of utmost importance, we cannot neglect style. Of course, even when we haven’t taken a proper bath or a good look in the mirror, we try to look good and also feel good. So we want our comfortable shoes to follow that design element as well.
In my case, I have slim feet. So I do look for shoes that have a slim shape because if I wear shoes with a wide toe cap, I feel like a duck wading in the mud.
Buying good quality shoes for me is very important because I don’t want to keep on buying new stuff. It irks me to have to spend so much time looking for the pair that suits me every few months. So my regular pair should last me at least two years before I find another perfect pair.
The next best thing to quality that makes this mama happy is of course, if the pair of shoes that I like is on sale. As a mom of two growing children, I am like many other moms who think about our family budget, first and foremost. That is why, if we need some stuff for ourselves or for the home, we wait until there is a sale event in the store so that we can buy what we need for less.
That is why hubby and I were super happy to learn about the big big sale of The Sports Warehouse in Bacolod. There are rubber shoes from popular brands like Nike, Adidas, New Balance, and Arena that are discounted up to 80% off!
Hubby got a new pair of New Balance leather shoes while I had the Nike LunarSolo running shoes. They are comfortable, look good, and had a 35% mark down. I totally love them. Since they are good for running, they are also good for walking, aren’t they? Plus, if I decide to go running, this would be a great pair of shoes. This momma is super happy! 😀
