This blog contains sponsored by Earth Footwear, however, opinions and images are my own.My feet get me from place to place and meeting to meeting. My days are long and comfort is mandatory.
I believe that there should be royal simplicity in a bootie that can go from day to night.
My clothing is an extension of who I am so my booties are as well. I look for cushioned, arch-supported boots that offer a classic yet simple design so that it can match with whatever I dress in. Travel is so much a part of my life that when I pack, I attempt to bring along one pair I can wear for those 2 days trips. Besides travel I am an active mom with 2 boys and we are all over the place.
We live deep in the suburbs on old farmland where you can walk and walk for miles. We spend a lot of time outside and I head out with my boys to keep active. Pittsburgh has so many different types of areas to live in from city to suburbs, farmland to neighborhoods, you just have endless options.
One thing is certain in Pittsburgh, the trails and beautiful landscape beckon you to connect with the earth and we do. This is my story of lavishly living life out loud and keeping royal simplicity in a bootie.
Royal Simplicity In A Bootie
We travel around Pittsburgh a lot for different engagements from food to meetings and I like to add just a little height to my petite frame so the heel of 2″ on this makes it perfection. The small boost and the cushioned arch support keep me moving with comfort. Hint * sometimes I do not wear socks inside of these boots because the inside is so soft in fact it is made of premium leather uppers and offers a glove-soft leather lining (think soft as butter).
I love being able to be sock-free because some days are long and if the only freedom I have on the job is letting my peds feel free then so be it because they are in a supportive environment and looking trendy!
One thing I did not realize is when we moved into our current home how far out in the country we really were. Now that I have adjusted it is fine and in fact I love dressing more ‘country-like’ because of our ‘out there’ location.
Earth Shoes Background
If you know me, you know I love to know more about the shoes that are on my feet and how they came about. Behind every good pair of shoes is a great story and Earth Brands Footwear has a great story:
“Earth® was founded by Anne Kalso, a Danish Yoga Instructor, who set-out to create shoes that made total body wellness its mission. Anne believed that wellness starts from the ground-up. To walk tall, one’s feet must be grounded and comfortable. To this day, this philosophy is designed into every Earth® shoe.”

Meet The Royal Boot
My ROYAL boot is from Earth Royal collection from Earth Brands. If you are not familiar with Earth Royal it from the ‘Earth Walk your World Collection’ found on the Earth Footwear website. The Royal bootie provides a comfortable footbed, arch support and heels that are over padded which provide you with comfort for day-long wear.
Why ROYAL is Perfect For Me
The boot is chestnut brown which allows me to easily mix and match it with leggings, and denim. Suede jumps the boot from basic to fabulous and the faux zipper and buckle on one side give it that ‘western’ look that is kickie with jeans! The boot is not heavy on the foot, it is light and airy to stride in. Trust me, after playing basketball in them I know!
Exploration Of My Farmland Neighborhood
We spend a lot of time out and about and one of our favorite spots is right on our walking trails and at our neighborhood park. My kids love to run the track, hit baseballs, play tennis and roam the trails. Really with this for a backyard could you pass it up?
Often I will pick them up from school (after I have been working day long) and just head on over to the park with them so they can have fun. One day, I actually forgot a change of shoes and I had on my Royal boots. We literally parked the car in our driveway and just took off for the hiking trails.
I never hesitated I just got out with them and I had fun, walking on the trails and collecting leaves and acorns. The ability to just get out there and have fun is possible in these comfortable Royal boots. The footbed is so cushioned and comfortable.
My feet were feeling great possible because Earth® offers an innovative cushioned footbed that is great for all day comfort from a padded heel that displaces shock to an arch support! We walk our trails, and we shot a few hoops and then we headed home. My feet were none the wiser and I can tell you I was so surprised.
