Running after kids in the summer—from toddlers to teens—we are constantly looking for go-to shoes that are as comfortable as they are stylish. That’s why we’re loving the new Evolve Footwear line, which has patented energy return technology (in short, a responsive footbed to give you a mini energy boost with each step!). Designed to help moms with all we do every day, from the playground to work, school meetings and more, the collection includes sandals, sneakers and pumps in a variety of colors.
We asked a few members of The Local Moms Network to test run the Evolve collection—see their reviews:
This month has been so busy with birthdays, graduations, dance recitals and end of year celebrations! One of the biggest events was my 5th graders graduation from elementary school! For the big day, I wore the Robin Pumps from Evolve. I opted for the navy suede style that was incredibly soft, comfortable and stylish! As a tall mama, I don’t wear heels all that often, but I loved how these pumps were both lightweight and flexible, thanks to their rubberized footbed that felt like an airy cushion. In addition to the comfort, I also love that they are super stylish and great for special occasions, or a fun way to dress up jeans.
They’re Crazy Comfortable
Amanda Vlastas of West University Moms (above) has two active boys, ages 3 and 6, so she’s on-the-go all-the-time, and says her new sandals kept up with even her most hectic days. “The sandals have a cute vibe and feel like I’m wearing sneakers,” says Amanda, adding that they have quickly become her faves: “When I find a shoe that’s comfortable and easy to get on and off quickly, I usually wear them every day.”
Megan Sullivan of Greenwich Moms, another #boymom (of 3!) is a fitness devotee and has been incorporating her new Evolve sneakers into her workout regime, from gym classes to walks with friends. “I feel an extra bounce in my step during my workouts which is great for my motivation. Then when I’m done, they’re comfortable all day long and are perfect paired with my usual athleisure pieces,” says Megan.
You Don’t Have to Break Them In
We don’t know any moms who have time to “break in” shoes, and the fact that these were wearable out of the box appealed to Sarah Paddack of Libertyville Area Moms, who is mom to a son, 6 and a daughter, 3. “They are so comfortable. Like the most comfortable shoe I’ve worn—and I have very sensitive skin and feet that easily hurt and blister with new shoes,” says Sarah. She adds: “These shoes have me feeling like I can keep going since my feet never hurt in them. It feels like I’m walking on air.”
Amanda says she was grateful that these shoes go with basically everything in her closet. She says wants them in every color and has dressed her sneakers up down for day and up for a casual date night: “I’d wear these shoes to run errands in all day, take a walk with the kids or out for a night with the girls or with my husband.”
As moms, anything we can do to streamline our day but also help us feel put together, and, most importantly, comfortable, is a no-brainer. Fashion is important but as we’re juggling 5,000 things (and that’s just in one day!), we need it to be easy.
