Shoes with a Cause

BOBS are a shoe with a cause; they are Skechers way of giving back.  For every pair purchased a pair of shoes are given to a child in need.  To date Skechers has donated 3 million pairs of shoes worldwide!  That is amazing but there are still many children in the world that are in need of a good pair of shoes to protect their feet form the terrain and elements, 300 million in fact.  That is a lot of feet to protect.

Together we can help to put a dent into this number.  You may be thinking that you are just one person but lets say you have 2 kids and buy a pair of shoes for yourself and one for each of your children.  That is 3 pairs of shoes just from your family.  Might not sound like much but 3 pairs of shoes per family is a great start, even 1 pair per family is something and a step in the right direction.

Bobs are not only concerned with helping people but they are earth-friendly as well.   BOBS by Skechers are one of those companies.  The box that BOBS are sold in is not one of the bright, glossy boxes meant to catch the eye that you see most shoes sold in.  That is because the packaging is earth earth-friendly.   If you have read other reviews of mine you know that I like products that do the simple things to improves their carbon footprint.....and mine.

My Opinion

I have recently had a chance to to review BOBS from Skechers. I chose to the Black Doily BOBS.  I though they were super cute on the site and were my favorite by far.  My personality maybe colorful but I love black because it is so neutral and goes with so many other colors.  But they also had natural (a cream color), pink, and blue for the Doily as well.    

When I got them I was excited to try them on.  So I immediately put them on.  They were SO comfy.  I could tell right away that I was going to love these shoes.  My first thought was "I have to get more.  I have to get the other colors in these exact shoes".  I loved them.  It is not usually love at first site for me with shoes.  Well I take that back, I love shoes at first site a lot but once I try them on they are usually disappointing and I can't have them because they are uncomfortable.  This was not the case with BOBS.

The shoes were well constructed and I love that they had a pillow arch cushion in the insole.  Arch support is super important and many shoe companies forget about this very important detail, especially in slip on type shoes and sandals.

These are great for me since I live in  Arizona because our winters are mild so I can still wear a sandal type shoe but still have my foot protected. 

I love that they have so many different shoes to choose from.  They have something for every style.  They are all reasonably priced too.  Make sure you purchase a pair and support a great cause!  Don't forget when purchasing BOBS you aren't just buying one pair of shoes....You are buying 2.......One for you and one for a child in need.
