As my pregnant body continues to grow, it’s become increasingly difficult to spend a full day in heels. Don’t get me wrong – I’m not tossing all of my finest footwear into the back of my closet just yet, but most mornings I’ve been sliding on a pair of flats for comfort. The newest pair to make it into my shoe rotation is a pair of Ariat Strathmore clogs.
Normally when I think of clogs I picture nurses walking the corridors of a hospital…not anymore. Ariat has managed to take the comfort and support of a clog and add some style and flair. What results is a great everyday shoe that can be appreciated by all women who need to take a break from their heels. The greatest thing is that they still have a bit of a heel allowing me to wear longer pants without tripping all over myself…something that’s much easier to do now that I’m 5 months pregnant.
Ariat’s co-founders set out to make the world’s most innovative performance riding boot. Since their first pair of boots shipped in 1993, they’ve expanded their focus to include riding boots, work boots, and casual footwear. All of their shoes are designed with the highest quality materials to dramatically reduce fatigue and stress to feet, legs and the lower back; a pregnant woman’s dream shoe!
They even have kids’ shoes!
Zareen, a Mommies with Style writer, was able to share a pair of Ariat’s children’s boots with her daughter:
Mia’s been kickin’ it in a pair of Ariat boots this fall. She loves them because they are 1. pink and 2. “cowgirl boots”. Very important criteria in her little world. I love them because they are 1. adorable 2. durable 3. functional in any kind of weather and 4. she very willingly puts them on in the morning.
Mia’s been wearing the Ariat ProBaby boot in distressed brown/pink camo. They are cute and well made. They have an 8″ height and come with Ariat’s “Booster Bed” that provides extra wiggle room for growing feet. Comfort, style, durability – what else could you ask for in a child’s boot?
