For many of us in North America the time has come to store our clunky winter boots and seek out some summer shoes! Amidst the sound of joyous celebration there comes the urge to SHOP for that perfect pair of shoes. If you are someone who loves to be barefoot like I do you may be looking for shoes that are super-comfy, light but still provide the support you need. OTZShoes have the answer.
OTZShoes has a fascinating story. In a nutshell the one of the owners developed OTZShoes based upon the oldest shoes ever found which belonged to Oetzi, the iceman, and dated back to 3300B.C. He realized he could redesign this iconic shoe incorporating today’s trend, comfort and technology.
Each Spring I look around for the perfect shoe to join me in my adventures. It has to be comfortable, provide lots of support, be fashionable and not irritate my back injuries. This many not seem like a long list of requirements but I’ve found it can be quite challenging. Too often I find the support and comfort without the fashion.
I was given the opportunity to review my choice of color in the OTZ300GMS line. This shoe is a unisex model which features a linen upper in various colors, each with a CORKlite™ footbed and outsold made of rubber and Jute fibers.
I chose to review the OTZ300GMS Linen Fluro Pink simply because it is very fashionable and would be something people would notice. After reading the online description I had high hopes of the support and comfort it would provide.
My review of OTZ300GMS
The shoes arrived in a box with a travel bag. I was immediatly pleased with the vibrant color of the Pink linen. The shoe’s linen upper adapted to my foot contors, the openening was very snug at first but as I put on the shoes over a week it gradually expanded until it was the perfect size.
The CORKlite™ footbed is removable, but with my back issues I chose to keep it in place, realizing I need the support. It softened and molded to my foot over time and now I find it to be very comfy and my heels don’t slip at all.
These casual, comfy shoes are very light, provide me with the support I need and are fashionable.
The OTZ300GMS is offered in a variety of colors and textures, even Pony Hair so I’m sure you’ll find one which fits your taste and with an opening price of $80USD I consider them a very good buy!
