Product Spotlight: Teva Cozumel Beaded Flip Flop Sandals

I won’t lie when things get quiet around here at Shopping Blitz headquarters I often find myself daydreaming. My swivel chair morphs into a hammock and the concrete floor becomes the softest, whitest sand
I have ever seeTeva Cozumel Beaded Flip Flop Sandalsn. My coworker’s snores become the sound of waves crashing and my cubicle dissolves into miles of pristine blue water. And like that I am on vacation! Nothing gets me in the mood for my mini retreats like promoting some of my favorite summer gear.

I recently stumbled across Teva‘s new Cozumel Beaded Flip Flop Sandals while browsing our new product selections. What drew me immediately was the unique design and flow. From the waterproof leather uppers to the Mush midsoles promising comfort no matter where the warm weather takes you. These sandals invoke for me not only lazy days at the beach but adventure, road trips, letting loose and letting go. In the words of the ultimate adventurer Jack Kerouac, Live, travel, adventure, bless, and don’t be sorry.”

Manufacturer Spotlight: OOFOS

It seems like everyday here at Shopping Blitz headquarters we are adding new brands to our repertoire. And while everything we sell is high-quality and the best of the best, every once in a while one comes across our desks that really stands out. So the Editors of The Blitz have created the Manufacturer Spotlight.

Our first spotlight is on OOFOS, truly a sandal like no other. Picture a shoe that is contoured to fit every angle of your foot. Made with OOFOAM, a combination of compound and their patented footbed design. A sandal that bends when your foot does and supports it on the way down as well! OOFOS supports the bone structure of your foot while cushioning the impact of walking at the same time. Test results show that Oofoam technology is 37% more impact absorbing than any existing EVA, the most used material in footwear. What sets OOFOS a part from the pack is its restorative component. A lot of manufacturer’s claim their sandals provide support and comfort but OOFOS actually restores your foot’s energy and provides instant recovery

Poorly designed footwear can not only make your feet hurt but cause stress and impact on other joints; hips, knees and back to name a few. For this reason and many others we at Shopping Blitz are personal fans of the OOFOS brand. We spend a lot of time on our feet just like you do, and we want a sandal that can carry us from day to night. We love that due to OOFOS’ flexibility, the sandal can move with our foot rather in opposition to it.

At Shopping Blitz we believe in testing the merchandise before we sell and almost our entire staff now owns a pair of OOFOS. It only took one test drive for us all to become hooked! From music festivals to long days at the office… a pair of OOFOS keeps your tootsies refreshed and ready for more. Because of their reasonable price they are a great choice as wedding favors! No better way to thank your bridal party and guests than with sandals that will refresh their feet from a night of dancing and celebrating.

Have a fantastic 4th!

An oddly falling 4th is upon us and one that leaves us scrounging around for plans. A friend of a friend’s BBQ, the alluring but overcrowded beaches, hoping most of all to be invited somewhere with a pool! While this year’s festivities falls on an off day it doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate with style.

A good pair of sandals can make a stroll on the boardwalk feel like a walk down the runway, make time on your feet with family more palatable and hours spent waiting on the fireworks seem to fly by.

We have three sure-fire recommendations for the holiday:

1. Don’t forget your sunglasses or sunscreen. You want to keep your baby-soft skin protected!

2. Match the right gear with the occasion. Whether it be a pair of flip-flops for the beach, some wedges for a party, or just something to throw on to make gardening look even better.

3. And of course don’t forget to hydrate between drinks!

Whatever you do, do it safely and do it with joyful abandon! ~The Blitz
