T.U.K. Shoes: Where Girly Meets Goth

TUK

Who says the girly girl and grunge goth can’t merge styles? We certainly don’t! T.U.K. is combining these two seemingly different styles to create its sought-after footwear collections, which are being rocked by famous celebs, including actress Riley Keough, punk rockers Avril Lavinge and Haley Williams, former Dainty Kane singer Dawn Richards, model Ireland Basinger Baldwin, and Internet personality Audrey Kitching, just to name a few.

Infusing black leathers and dark velvets with cute designs, like hearts, polka dots, kittens and flowers, T.U.K. shoes appeal to both the punk rocker and the prom queen. The brand is best known for its signature creepers— those shoes featuring thick crepe-soles with leather or suede uppers— but also creates eclectic flats, heels and combat boots. And, let’s not forget about its wide variety of creepers, sneakers, dress shoes and boots for men!

The San Diego-based company was founded in 1991. Since then, it’s remained the go-to footwear brand for bands, music fanatics, artists, fashionistas and individuals seeking bold and creative styles.

If you want to get your hands on a pair (or several) of T.U.K. shoes, creepers or boots, visit us online at ShoppingBlitz.com. We’ve recently added T.U.K. shoes to our 400+ list of popular brands and are frequently updating our styles.

Why You Should Wear Merino Wool When Working Out

fitness--pushups_shutterstock_167044349

Calling all gym junkies, yogis and outdoor enthusiasts— it’s time to utilize merino wool activewear. Wool has many amazing properties that make it the ideal material for exercise clothing. While you may think wool is just suitable for winter conditions, it’s also appropriate for working out on those hot summer days. The material is soft, comfortable, lightweight, breathable and quick-drying and will keep you cool in the heat and warm in the cold. Many brands are taking advantage merino wool’s outstanding properties, particularly Ibex— a Vermont-based merino wool company providing high-performance activewear and outdoor apparel. Read on to learn more about the benefits of wearing merino wool while working out.

  • Temperature Control. Wool’s temperature control properties make it ideal for both warm and cold weather conditions. Unlike synthetic fabrics, merino wool responds to changes in body temperature. It absorbs moisture and evaporates it into the air to keep your body comfortable and dry in all conditions. Due to its ability to absorb and evaporate moisture, merino is incredibly breathable and won’t create static electricity or uncomfortably cling to your skin.
  • Extreme Comfort. Merino wool is super soft and flexible. Its tiny fibers allow the material to bend more than other wool fibers, so the material feels soft and gentle against your skin. Additionally, the material is naturally elastic so it will stretch with you, making it perfect for exercise.
  • Odor Resistance. Merino wool has anti-microbial properties that keep your garments fresh and odor free, no matter how much you sweat. While your other workout clothes will start to smell after a single use, wool apparel and accessories won’t stink. This means you can wear them for longer and more times between washes, which is particularly beneficial for backpacking and camping.
  • Easy Care. Wool is stain-resistant, machine-washable and anti-wrinkle, so merino wool apparel is extremely simple to care for. It won’t be easily stained by dirt or grime, and you can simply throw it in the washer and dryer to for an easy clean.
  • Sustainability. Merino wool is a 100% natural and renewable fiber, so it’s good for you and the environment.

These are some of the many reasons to wear wool while working out. To shop for wool clothes online, visit ShoppingBlitz.com.

5 Major Dance Class Essentials

It’s the beginning of fall, and while that means a return of school, fall leaves, and pumpkin-flavored everything, it also means a return of dance class season. Whether your dance class is about to start or just did and you’ve found that you’re woefully ill-equipped, you’ll need supplies, pronto! Ordering them online is the best way to get dance supplies quickly. But what should you buy? If you are relatively new to dance or simply haven’t had to buy the items yourself, you may not be sure what to prioritize. At Shopping Blitz, we’re here to help! Here are some of the absolute basics that you cannot do without:

Shoes

shoes

Dance is an art form that involves your whole body, but most of the stress is placed on your feet – literally. Almost all of your movements are supported by your feet, and if your shoes aren’t up to the strain, your whole performance will suffer. If you’ve been dancing a while and have shoes that you trust that are well worn-in, great! However, there’s a big difference between worn-in and falling apart, and if you don’t think that your current pair will last the month, you need new shoes now.

Branching out to another style? Perhaps you’ve always been a ballet dancer and would like to add tap or jazz to your repertoire. Shopping Blitz has the best brands, like Bloch jazz sneakers, dance pumps, and ballet pointe shoes, to ensure that everything from practices to performances go well.

Clothing

Having comfortable, appropriate clothing for dance is almost as important as having the right shoes. Clothing should ideally be stretchy, lightweight, and easy to move around in; pieces that are too heavy or tight can hamper your range of motion and make the performance of certain moves difficult. You also don’t want anything that you could easily get tangled in.

Depending on the type of dance you are involved in and the requirements of your individual class, the right kind of clothing can vary. For instance, jazz groups often have a bit more freedom to choose the style of clothing, whereas many ballet classes may require a black leotard and pink tights. Ask if your class has any specific restrictions or guidelines before making a purchase. Also, know your actual measurements so that you can choose the right sizes the first time.

Hair Accessories

hair accessories

Have you ever seen Center Stage? The movie is about a bunch of teenagers trying to get into an elite ballet academy, and one of the first things you notice is that all of the dancers have their hair up. The last thing you can afford when dancing is to have your hair getting into your face and disorienting you. Even putting it up in a standard ponytail can sometimes leave it whipping around into your eyes. With that in mind, we carry Capezio products like Bunheads hair nets, bobby pins and hairpins, jeweled clips and hairbands with flowers, and many more options to keep your face free!

Legwarmers

Legwarmers may have become popular mainstream fashion items in the ’80s, but they actually serve a purpose in dance. If your muscles get too cold, they will be stiff and limit your movement and your ability to perform. If you are required to wear a leotard, legwarmers might make the difference during the cold winter months. Or perhaps you prefer dance shorts to pants that you have to change when you get too hot; you can easily remove legwarmers without the hassle if you get overheated during a warmup or rehearsal.

Toe Pads

No matter which dance style you perform, your feet will take a beating. One of the dangers of dancing with only shoes and hose is that there is very little to protect your feet from the rubbing that can occur. While this may not be a problem all the time, it can put a halt to your practice while your blisters heal, and can be a real issue during a performance when any irritation will limit you physically and only continue to get worse as you move. Toe pads can be worn underneath shoes and hose, and will protect your feet from the types of rubbing that can really hurt you and your dancing.

When shopping for dance shoes, clothes, and accessories online, keep your practical needs in mind. At Shopping Blitz, can get items to you quickly, and if you need to make any returns, it’s free and easy!

 

Cool Job Series: The Teacher

shutterstock_144566138

This month on our #CoolJob Series, we are highlighting yet another job we greatly admire – the teacher! Regardless of the subject they teach, teachers help pave a bright future for students and help them grow into intelligent, responsible, kind and well-rounded adults. Most teachers spend five days a week with their students and serve as one of the most influential people in their lives. Whether a teacher teaches elementary school, middle school or high school, he/she guides students through a pivotal stage in their development and helps them grow.

Along with serving as great role models and building a bright future for our children, teachers have a wide range of responsibilities. Some of those responsibilities include preparing lesson plans, teaching classes, encouraging students, evaluating student progress and maintaining discipline. After the school day, many teachers continue their work at home. They may bring home tests to grade or continue working on preparing lesson plans. To get everything they need to and from school and home, they need a durable, spacious and easily to carry bag. Check out our featured products at Shopping Blitz that are perfect for teachers:
