Win a pair of Kalso Earth shoes! {giveaway}

by Andrea on June 8, 2012 · 80 comments

Hey everyone! It’s Friday again and I think we should talk about shoes! But not just any shoes, Kalso Earth Shoes! If you haven’t heard of these, you need to check them out because they are so insanely comfortable and cute!

I recently featured the Empire in one of my Disney Fashion posts and I now own these shoes. The negative heel technology took me a couple of days to get used to, but I can tell that my posture is much better when I am wearing them. I also love that they are adjustable in just about every place possible so they really fit my foot.

What I love about Kalso Earth Shoes

I love that I have better posture when I wear these shoes. I am a chronic “slumper” and I need all the help I can get! The pair that I was sent to review are really neutral and versatile. I love wearing them out for a day of errands with jeans and a cute shirt! They would also be really cute with a maxi-dress if I had one. (note to self: buy a maxi dress)

I am also dying to try the Prosper sneakers. I love slim sneakers and this pair is just calling my name! I love the color combo too.

What I would change about Kalso Earth Shoes

There isn’t much that needs changing, but I will admit that I was a little surprised at how substantial the sole was on the Empire sandals. These sandals are wonderful, but they definitely aren’t dainty. I don’t necessarily think that is something that needs to be changed as long as you are aware of it!

The Kalso Story

Part of what I love so much about these shoes is the company! Kalso Earth Shoes have been around since 1970 growing and changing the way people walk. Anne Kalso has an amazing story to tell and I am personally inspired by her ability to build an entire business around a simple moment in time and her own inspiration.

 …In 1957… she observed the excellent posture of indigenous Brazilians, and the impressions left by their bare footprints as they walked through beach sand. She observed that the footprints laid were deeper in the heels than in the toes. This natural body position resonated with the thoughtful Kalsø . It echoed a formative yoga pose she knew well – Tadasana (the ‘Mountain’ pose). As she herself emulated the pose of the native Brazilians, she noticed how her own posture improved, and how her breathing passages opened.

    What a great business story about how Kalso earth shoes started. Posture really does matter, I learned this after a car accident. My PT is working with me to improve my posture after some back injuries. I like all the style but really thought Exquisite was pretty.

    My favorite shoe (today anyway!) is the Rhyme in Rosso. I love to have a stylish, go-with-anything sandal that can quickly be slipped on while hurrying out the door. The Rhyme fits that description to a “T”.

    I would have to say its a dead tie between “the Enchant” and “the Rebel” Depending on the time of year it is. I would have to say i may get more use out of the rebel just because its a fall and winter boot that can even be carried over into the cooler spring nights. Thank you for the giveaway :D
