Summer Park Strolls In Comfy Famous Footwear Shoes




Is there anything not to love about summer? It's definitely my favorite season of all! Vibrant, colorful flowers at every turn, the smell of fresh cut grass, and warm days with a lovely breeze make me one happy girl! After being cooped up in the house all winter, there is nothing I love more than strolling through the parks with my family once the warm weather hits. We are pretty lucky to have several really gorgeous parks close to my home, and on nice summer days, you'll probably find us taking full advantage of the walking paths and playgrounds in them.

Mariah and Jason are easy like Sunday morning, usually opting to dilly dally along with the dogs, or slowly walk along the water's edge. But Allison is a little fireball with so much energy to burn, and that makes her eager to hit up the playgrounds. Go! Go! Go! is her motto!

Whether it's hopscotch, tree climbing, or tackling the mountain of stairs, she always finds a way to release some of her pent up energy. I'm a mixture though. I like to scale the rocks and stairs, or see how high I can swing, but I also like to take every opportunity to stop and admire the flowers.


When enjoying the great outdoors, it's important for us to have shoes that will allow us to spend hours on our feet comfortably as well as stylishly! In order to find shoes that fit my families summertime activities, we enjoy shopping at Famous Footwear for their fun and exciting collection! I live for sandals in the warmer months, and knew that these Madden Girl Thrilll sandals were going to be my new favorite summertime time shoe. I love that they are so versatile, pairing well with dresses, jeans or shorts! Allison is a sandal girl too, but for park play, it's important to have a little more protection around the toes, as well as a barrier to keep those pesky pebbles from slipping under the soles of her feet. She recently opted to buy a pair of Sperry Top-Sider Biscayne Boat Shoes for her outdoor adventures and has been putting them to good use!

Famous Footwear is a fabulous place for summertime inspiration. Pop on over to see their latest shoe varieties and explore what others are wearing.

    1. So true, Pat! My husband used to invest in those shoe inserts thinking they would help (never did) until he finally started buying good shoes. No more back problems!

    2. Good - CUTE - shoes are often hard to come by! I have two pairs of dress shoes that I rotate at work. I wish I could wear more, but I can't find any with enough support, but that are dressy enough!

  5. Allison is like my boys - energetic. Although Mica is calming down now that he can read really well. There have been times where I've stopped off at a middle school track and made them run. They were always too energetic for running errands.

    I love both of your shoes!

    1. That's really smart making them get out there and run some of that energy off! I need to do that with Allison, I think. Bedtime is at 9, but she's still bouncing around at 11:30 every single night. We need a better plan!

  8. Agree! Comfy shoes is a must! Love the sandals and the shoes too...I need to buy a new pair of sandals but never really have time to do it. I can go around the malls and go through the entire sandal collection of the world and still feel I haven't found what I am looking for :D
