We took Joya shoes for a super road test. I went walking with a friend of mine the other day. A nice stroll with our kids in strollers. This dear friend doesn'??t drive, so she walks everywhere. I mean, everywhere. She has worn out the walking system on Google Maps.
So instead of a park close to her house, she suggested one in an adjacent towns. One I would otherwise drive to. No matter. It was a nice day. I work out. I was up for it. Too bad my sandals weren'??t. I felt every single pound on the pavement by the time we were there.
There'??s a new revolutionary shoe line called Joya from Swiss shoe developer Karl Mueller Jr. that brings a comfort footwear to both men and women. Wish I had these around mile 2.
Joya'??s shoes have a lotta soul. No really. They do. That'??s why they're so comfortable. They have Joya'??s Sole Technology--four layers of cushy love with a patented active air pump so you'??re walking on the softest shoe you could imagine. Seriously, it'??s like they strapped marshmallows to the bottoms of your feet. I believe I might have gasped when I took my first step. They resemble those heavy sloped workout shoes that claim to tone your butt, but you'??re walking effortlessly instead of clunking. They also have a million adjustable straps, so these puppies will fit anyone'??s dogs.
Now I won'??t lie. You might be walking on air, but you'??re also walking that fine tightwire between fashion and function'?¦and you'??re falling off that wire, darling fashionistas. These aren'??t that stylish. I thought choosing the Cairo sandal in black (seen above) might make it look less like a nurse'??s shoe and it did. But there will be no gallivanting through the chicest part of town in these. They'??re more casual with jeans or cargo capris. Hey, wait'?¦that actually does sound sort of stylish. Not every sense of style needs to be Carrie Bradshaw chic, right?
With how comfortable they are, who cares? This is where I insert a cheesy pun like '??they'??re still a Joy-a to wear'?'?¦Cheesy but true.
The Women'??s Cairo sandal is available at for $195. Visit joya-usa.com for store locations near you.
