Last year I was in search of the perfect comfort shoe. My search started in part because of my upcoming Gift Guide event but I am a shoe fanatic,Â connoisseur, lover of all things footwear. Seriously I have two closets full of shoes, and that does not include shoes I have donated over the years. So last year I found a brand that was formerly known as J-41 and I held a great review and giveaway. Well they were in the process of rebranding to Jambu at the time, along with launching their new website and this year as part of their launch they wanted me to help spread the word on their name and the fabulous brand.
Truly these shoes ARE the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn. EVER!
I like my shoes to be versatile. As a woman and mother I like to be able to wear shoes that I can maneuver with the kids and still wear out on a date with the hubs. I also love a comfortable shoe that can move with me when I move with the kids, but still be stylish and not a “tennis shoe.” Basically I am not your average sweats and t-shirts or t-shirt and jeans mama. My step-father coined me best as a “classy broad.” Need I say more. In addition to style and functionality I also am conscious of the brands; are they eco-friendly, are they trade friendly (equal rights and labor in developing countries), etc. Here is why Jambu was so appealing to me, in addition to their fabulous line of stylish footwear.

Be You with Jambu
Versatile: Unlike other outdoor brands, Jambuâ„¢ shoes are designed by women for women, therefore, details such as floral motifs, contrast stitching and materials keep Jambu a step ahead creating an outdoor fashion feel.
Comfort: With its Memory Foamâ„¢ Footbed, Jambuâ„¢ will cradle your foot and keep you comfortable all day.

The pair of shoes I received for review were the “Journey” which are part of the Sporty WedgeDesign line of Jambu. This cute, sporty wedge features pretty floral motif detail, soft, nubuck leather and is quick and easy to put on. Perfect for a lady on the go, the Journey has a contoured foot bed and extra cushioning for additional support and comfort (Jambu, 2010). Truly these shoes are perfect for on the go, are stylish for casual everyday activities like running errands, chasing the kids at the park, but are chic enough to wear out for an evening.
The shoes are similar to a clog, with the feel of wearing a wedge and the comfort of wearing your favorite tennis shoes. Growing up in Arizona I have always loved to be barefoot so shoes are always so cumbersome and what I ADORE about the Jambu line is the breathableÂ design of their shoes, the no stink insoles, and the extra cushioning for comfort. Plus the soles are rugged and tough and show little to no wear with how much I am in them.
My favorite pair? I could not pick just one. Narrowing my decision was hard enough, but needless to say that any shoe from the Sporty Wedge line would be a favorite. So to pick a true wedge or a sandal wedge? That was the question.
If you love a great shoe but are wanting a multi-purpose, fully functional, COMPLETELY comfortable shoe I would recommend Jambu. You can find them online too at Planet Shoes and Zappos. But feel free to browse their site and find out more about each line of shoes and their eco-friendly materials and animal friendly Vegan collection.
