Making The Walk To Work A Joy

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Foot Petals. All opinions are 100% mine.

I feel like I’ve been on my feet since I was 16, when I got my first job as a library page. I’ve worked ever since, usually standing (12-14 hour shifts as a standing pharmacist are very hard on my feet, and running around as a mom is just as tiring). If I’m not comfortable, if my shoes hurt, then everything hurts, including my back and neck, and then that walk from work to the train station feels like a million miles to me.

I always made sure to wear comfortable shoes. Pharmacists, nurses, and any professional that is used to standing or running around on their feet all day tend to gravitate to padded clogs and nursing shoes. I have at least four pairs! If you walk to work, you understand the feeling too, and probably always shop for comfort first. Sometimes just investing in comfy shoes isn’t enough, and anyone with tired, aching feet knows we need something extra. Foot Petals Sock-free Saviors are the best way to save us from those aches (and maybe even let us pick shoes based on style more often as well).

April 1st is National Walk To Work Day this year. It’s the first Friday of April every year, and many people in Manhattan walk to work every day. Walking is a great way to get in exercise and great for your health, and it’s better for the environment if many of us got into the habit of walking more, so don’t stop! Just make sure you are wearing good walking shoes, and Foot Petals Sock-free Saviors!

I wear clogs when I work- padded closed clogs in the winter, and open back clogs during the warmer seasons. I go commando in my clogs (because socks with clogs looks incredibly dorky to me) and with Foot Petals aka Sock-Free saviors, our feet can go commando in our shoes. They prevent odor with long-lasting microbial protection, and while Foot Petals are washable, the anti-microbial protection won’t wash away.

Foot Petals Sock-free Saviors are ventilated to keep feet both cool and dry, and perforated to make them easier to trim to size (I trimmed mine down to small). They have premium PORON® cushioning to absorb shock for all day comfort, and can be worn with any closed-toed shoes.

And they are plush… nice and thick and comfy, like walking on a layer of marshmallows (or petals), but you can’t see them while wearing them after you trim them to your size. You’ll feel super comfy walking to work in these!
