I work, live and play in Brooklyn. While many women get around by car, my main mode of transport is by foot. I'm pretty serious about taking care of them so I can keep racing around for many years to come. That's why I'm working these Fresh Foam Arishi by New Balance into my shoe wardrobe.
Yes, I love high heels and boots. And i do write about style quite frequently. In my life, I need a variety of footwear that fills different needs.
Most days I'm walking miles to get everyone where they need to be, and I try to get in as many workouts as possible. For the nonstop days that are part of my busy Mom Boss life, the Fresh Foam Arishi provides lightweight breathability, comfort and the support I need.
I can wear these all day, from drop off to the gym, and look and feel great.
Finding shoes that can support my epic days is a big deal. Take last Monday for instance, I logged over five miles without even batting an eye. Here's my Apple Health tracker from last Monday. And no, this wasn't a "long run day" this was a day where I was just doing what I do. Getting the kids where they need to be, tackling work projects, and doing a little bit of errands.

The Best Overnight French Toast Recipe
We've hit the winter lull--that lengthy stretch of season with no plans, no parties, nothing to do, and nowhere to go. I have to admit that at first, I welcomed the quiet obligation-free weekends of January. After the nonstop hustle-bustle pace of November and December, my family ...read more
Supportive Walking Shoes Active Moms
The Fresh Foam Arishi can handle whatever my day brings. The shoe is designed to keep me moving in comfort all day, every day. Whether I'm walking, running or cycling, my feet can feel supported and stylish.
On this particular day, I climbed 14 floors and walked a TON. My feet felt great. When I went out to dinner that night, I switched into heels knowing I'd taken care of my feet all day.
I've been testing these beauties from New Balance since I picked them up at our Meredith #MTNightOut2 Event in NYC a few weeks ago. Momtrends is all about sharing what works, I've been putting the mileage in on these ultra cushioned Fresh Foam Arishi and think they are ideal for busy moms.
Where can I take them? Let's start with the school drop off, then for a spin on my Citibike and finally for an afternoon 5K run with my girls. These lightweight performance shoes can keep up with me no matter how many miles I put in.
Don't we all need a show that is designed to keep up with mom life—all day, every day? Let me know if you try them!
The Fresh Foam Arishi is available now at newbalance.com and other footwear shops.
