little flower designs on my shoes, little flowers in my garden
Jambu makes a bunch of shoes, and only some of them are vegan, but they are always coming out with new designs even in their vegan line. I first stumbled across Jambu brand many years ago at a local sporting goods store. I found a super cute pair of shoes there, and then couldn't believe my eyes when they were actually vegan! It even said the word "vegan" on the label. So Cool. I've been a Jambu fan and loyalist ever since then.
Cruising through the Jambu spring line up of women's vegan shoes, I decided to try out the Deep Sea Vegan Sandal in Charcoal color. They also have some cute little slip-ons that look super comfortable. I'm glad I made the choice I did though, because I really love these shoes!
It turns out that these Deep Sea Vegan Jambus are just exactly what I was looking for. First of all, I think they're really cute. I like the cute out flower designs, and the little floral print on the ankle strap, and the contrast stitching. So I feel fun and sassy when I wear them. The upper part of the shoe is made with a comfortable feeling and nice-looking vegan leather.
this is usually what happens on a leash walk with the doggies - two pulling in one direction, one pulling in another direction! ha ha. Stevie loves to go-go-go, and Snoopy and Dottie love to sniff and pee! These are great walking shoes.
They're also super comfortable. The inserts are made with memory foam, so they're smooshy and luxe-feeling on my feet. As soon as I got them, I got all excited and wore them for a dog walk. Of course I got a little blister on my pinkie toe (you'd think I'd know by age 42 about the art of breaking in a new pair of shoes), but the soles of my feet felt great. Now that my feet are used to these shoes, I don't get that blister anymore either.
Lastly, I really like how these shoes feel like a sandal, but are secure like a shoe. I mostly wear flip-flops, but supposedly that's not great for your feet. Also, sometimes Mr VE&T and I like to go for little joy-rides on our bikes, and I don't necessarily feel like using my fancy bike shoes and "clipping in," especially since he just has a basic cruiser for a bike. I don't love riding in my flip-flops because my darling little toes feel so vulnerable and exposed. But these shoes are great for joy rides! They stay on nice and firmly, and also with the closed toe - my little toes are protected and looking cute all at the same time!

The local store where I used to be able to find Jambus went out of business, but luckily, Jambus are easy to find online, like at Planetshoes. The internet is pretty cool for a lot of reasons, including reading vegan blogs and shopping for vegan shoes. Plus! The folks at Jambu created a 10% coupon code for VE&T readers: the code is jambuveganeats and it's valid from now until May 31. Yippee! Let's be shoe twinsies.
