I have discovered a new shoe – and it has quickly become my firm favourite for travelling!
Right now, NZ is in Level 1 so we’re only travelling domestically, but I actually wear these shoes everyday.
If you’re looking for an authentic OmegaWalk review, I originally saw the shoes advertised on Facebook, and it claimed they are great for walking if you suffer from plantar fasciitis – which I did a few years ago. So I bought a pair and they duly arrived (allow for courier delays at the moment), fit like a glove and are so comfortable I contacted the company to ask if they had an affiliate program so I could let you, dear reader, know about them.
So here it is: from Omega Walk, the Superflex 2 shoe with it’s cushioned insert making it probably the most comfy shoe I own. It is also extremely light weight for travelling, and looks cute!
BUT WAIT, because I am now so impressed by the cushioned insole, I sell these separately through my Travel Store – which you can read below.
*Disclaimer they will pay me a small commission from your purchase. They are also advertised in US dollars but ship for free world-wide, so just allow a bit of time for that.
Tip: I erred on the side of going half a size larger to account for the cushioned insole and they fit perfectly.
Buy the insoles separately
Great news : you can now get the 3D cushioned plantar insoles to put in any shoe or boot from my Travel Store (shipping NZ-only).
Check out the new Sole Purpose range of cushioned inserts here. They will work best in a shoe/boot/gumboot that has a little wriggle room.
Here’s another shoe I also like which can handle getting wet on river walks, on boats, etc.
I was originally contacted by Tropicfeel as they are making shoes from recycled plastic bottles, so for that reason alone I was keen to try it.
This brand new shoe went gang busters as a kick starter campaign and I, along with a bunch of global “influencers”, was asked if I’d like a pair sent out from Spain. Sure! I said. Nothing to lose, but potentially something new to gain. And now I want to tell you about it as I have worn them so often and can honestly recommend them.
The Tropicfeel is a very clever shoe.
It is super lightweight and can be worn in water and as a trainer all day long. It dries quickly and honestly and truly my feet do not stink when I take them off even with no socks!
Update: after a year of wearing without socks they may offer just a little “scent”!
This shoe would be ideal for people who enjoy the outdoors in a leisure capacity. Things like boating and walking through bush, on the beach, at a lake. The rubber sole traction is also great (I have a slippy slidey phobia so traction is important to me!)
I just wear them with my 3/4 pants and they look really cool.
They come in a few colours but I have these ones: black and teal. The laces are also stretchy so you just slip them on.
Jump onto Tropicfeel to get more details or buy a pair*. They are shipped from Barcelona, so expect to wait a couple weeks depending on where you live. Free shipping to NZ (and most of the world actually).
* I have decided to become an affiliate of Tropicfeel so if you buy a pair of shoes I will get a small commission.
