We're sure, at least once, when you've walked into any shoe store you've wondered if that store's employees wear the shoes they're selling to you. Well, fortunately, in the case of our store, the answer is yes. Our Co-Owner Erika has always been a lover of shoes. So, after purchasing the store with her husband ,Brett, she decided to bring in a few more fashionable ,yet comfortable, options.

Since the Birkenstock Arizona is one of our most popular shoes, it makes sense that it's one of Erika's favorites too. It's a comfortable and durable shoe that styles well with various outfits.

#3: Papillio Mary
As a lover of heels, it's no wonder this Papillio wedge is Erika's #3 pick. We've talked before about the long term damage heels can do to your feet if you wear them for long periods of time. Wedges can achieve the same height and stylish look as a pair of stilettos without some of the pain. The Papillio may be a wedge ,but you have to agree, it's as cute as any heel we've seen.
Upper: natural leather
Footbed lining: suede
Sole: polyurethane (PU)
Heel type: wedge heel; height: 40 mm

Next up, we have a pair of sneakers, the Skechers Bobs Skipper. Skechers are a new addition to our Boger's Shoes lineup. A durable slip-on option, the Bobs Skipper features bungee laces to easily adjust for a tighter fit. With their soft washed-finish canvas upper and a cushioned Skechers Memory Foam insole, these Skechers are a wonderful sneaker pick. An interesting fact, the Bobs Skipper is crafted from 100% vegan materials. Another amazing feature, in case the memory foam insole didn't have you sold, for every BOBS purchase, a donation is made to animals in need.

Lastly, we have the ultra light weight Sanuk Donna Hemp. Slip-Ons are the perfect shoe option when your hands are full. Moms, who always have their hands full, would benefit from these easy-on and easy-to-clean shoes. As a mom of two, it's no wonder these shoes are on Erika's list.

What kinds of shoes are Erika's Favorite?
As a shoe store owner, Erika knows that shoes are more than just something to look nice on your feet. Your feet support your whole body all day long and that requires a lot of work. So, while our shoe-loving co-owner does love stylish shoes, she knows it's important that they are comfortable, supportive and good for her feet.
It's easy to walk into a store and think no one there buys the shoes they're selling. So we're glad we can show you that's not true for our store. We may not have tried every shoe we have in stock but we do stand by each one of them. Whether we wear them personally or not, we can assure you of their comfort, style and pain-relieving features.
