Art & Sole: A Spectacular Selection of More Than 150 Fantasy Art Shoes from the Stuart Weitzman Collection
As a mother of two, and the wife of shoe designer Stuart Weitzman, Jane Weitzman created the perfect gift for Mother's Day and shoe lovers alike with Art & Sole. Art & Sole features 150 fantasy art shoes made of highly unique materials she has discovered and commissioned by artists over the last years for the Stuart Weitzman display windows.
In addition to Mother's Day Art & Sole also makes a great Thank You gift for a host during the upcoming Memorial Day weekend. Sticking to her philanthropic roots Jane will continue to donate 100% of profits to Ovarian and Breast Cancer Research.
My Experience: As a shoe-lover and an admirer of stunningly creative works of art, I could flip through this book and stare at the amazing photographs all day long. It just blows me away to see the various types of materials that the artists used in creating their masterpieces. You'll see shoes made of all types of things, including feathers, paper, ceramic, metal, Plexiglas, resin, playing cards, wire, cotton, poker chips, fresh flowers, and even frosting! My eighteen year-old daughter is an aspiring artist and has already gleaned some inspiration from Art & Sole that she will apply to a sculpture she is planning. We love this book!

BEARPAW brand was founded in 2001 with the intention of redefining casual footwear by utilizing sheepskin, nature’s own technical fabric, to create comfortable and stylish shoes.
Sheepskin naturally regulates body temperature so feet stay cooler and drier in the heat and warmer in the cold. In one of the most competitive footwear market segments, BEARPAW has carved out a niche area by providing customers with comfort and sensibility to set itself apart. From slippers to boots to casual footwear, only the finest materials are used to produce BEARPAW shoes. Built to deliver quality and style, every pair of BEARPAW shoes focuses on comfort and fit, using the highest standards of craftsmanship
My daughters, ages 15 and 17 absolutely love BEARPAW boots! My girls are very stylish young ladies. When I was given the opportunity to review BEARPAW's luxurious boots, my girls were absolutely thrilled. Each one of my daughters selected their favorite pair. Kendallyn chose the Women's Meadow Boot, and Myelie chose the Women's Boreal Boot.
Meadow 10" Boot
This medium-height women's boot by BEARPAW® offers a style that's well paired with denim, a casual skirt, or country dress, with a ruggedly comfortable design ideal for kicking around town. The upper is made of soft suede for a natural look, and the boot's luxuriously cozy lining provides increased cushioning and all-over comfort. The top of the boot can be folded down to expose some of the lining, creating a fashionable accent. The newly designed treaded rubber sole offers improved grip and durability.
- 10" tall
- Boot opening measures approximately 14 inches around
- Cow suede upper
- Sheepskin and wool blend lining
- Sheepskin footbed
- Woven heel and collar logos
- Classic TPR rubber cupsole with stitched detail
Kendallyn's Experience: She absolutely loves her Meadow boots because they are not only comfortable, warm and cozy like slippers, they are also stylish! They are a perfect pair of boots to own to complete your fashion wardrobe because not only do they look adorable with a skirt, but you can also pair them with skinny jeans or leggings. They are so versatile!
Kendallyn rocks her BearPaws
Women's Boreal Boot
When the snow is deep and the weather is cold this is the boot that you will reach for every time. The 16" shaft and wool blend lining will keep out the snow and the cold and, of course, the sheepskin footbed will keep your feet warm and comfortable.
- 16" tall
- Cow suede vamp and heel counter
- Nylon shaft with decorative patch
- Pocket detail and bungee cord drawstring
- Wool blend lining
- Sheepskin footbed
- Woven heel logo
- Semi clear rubber outsole with cork cupsole
- Water shedding tread design and stitched detail
Myelie's Experience: Myelie chose Boreal style boots because since winter is rapidly approaching, she wanted a stylish snow boot that would look amazing with her skinny jeans as well as her skirts. We live way up on a hill where we get our share of snow. Myelie often has to catch the bus for school, and must walk quite a long was to her bus stop. She absolutely loves her Boreal boots because they are very warm and cozy as well as oh, so cute! Definitely fashionable.
These boots were made for walking! (Not really, but they sure do keep a girls feet warm!)
Another thing we love about BEARPAW is that they are just as fashionable as UGGS but way more affordable. They also seem to last forever.

Live Life Comfortably in BEARPAW shoes.
BEARPAW shoes desires to be seen as more than just footwear, but as a lifestyle, one that reflects who you are and what is important to you. Comfort, contentment, serenity, adventure, happiness and joy are what comes to mind when I think of BEARPAW shoes. Not only because I love the styles they offer, but because they are a company based on helping others. BEARPAW believes they have a responsibility to act as stewards of the environment and in making the world a better place.
My teenage daughters, Kendallyn and Myelie are huge fans of BEARPAW shoes. BEARPAW has the most adorable line of boots, shoes, slippers and flip flops for women, men and kids.
You must check out BEARPAW'S new Spring line of footwear! They have Flip-flops, wedges, moccasins, and spring boots in new floral patterns you are sure to love.
My daughter, Kendallyn recieved a pair of BEARPAW IVY Boots from the BEARPAW Spring Collection, So cute and comfortable! These will compliment many spring looks, such as shorts, skirts or skinny jeans.
Kendallyn also selected a pair of BEARPAW LILY flip-flops shown below:

"At BEARPAW, we believe that helping and caring isn't everyone else's responsibility. We need to do our part as well. Our employees are wonderfully involved in our communities as well as philanthropic programs that truly make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate.
A brand's reputation is only as good as it's people and engaging employees out in the community has been the foundation of BEARPAW's values since day one. Employees consistently volunteer their time and efforts at many community projects and programs.
Below are a couple of the exciting non-profit organizations that BEARPAW partners with:
KIDS is an organization which helps children who are in distress around the world.
HiSoles4Souls® is a shoe charity that collects gently worn shoes and monies to provide shoes to those in need.
I recieved samples of BEARPAW footwear. The opinions are my own.
The Cushe Surf-Slipper is stylish, and oh, so comfortable! They almost feel as comfortable as being barefoot , or wearing cozy slippers and can be worn as a slip-on by folding down the back! These shoes are also so cute. I get many complients on them.
Disclosure: I was sent a pair of Cushe Surf-Slipper shoes to test and to keep. The opinions are my own.
I am impressed! Western Chief has great boots for men, women and children. I recieved the cutest pair of zebra print rainboots from them, and my daughter (whose feet are the same size as mine) keeps stealing them from me:) I absolutely love them! I love how Western Chief has so many styles to choose from.
So many choices, I thought I was in boot heaven!
Western Chief's extensive line includes work boots, steel toe, hiking shoes, sheepskin slippers and boots as well as rain and snow boots for men, women and children. And now fashion Chooka Shearling Sheepskin Boots.
If you have anyone on your holiday gift list who is in need of some really great boots, then shop Western Chief

I love to wear slippers around the house, but I also tend to run outside many times during the course of my day.......chasing after my four year old, grocery shopping and picking up kids from school. So I don't really have the time to think about switching from 'indoor' shoes to 'outdoor' shoes. Thankfully I found Sockwa, and I am really excited about them! I think they are perfect for busy mommies like me who enjoy being comfortable yet still look stylish.
What is Sockwa? Sockwas are shoes designed for just about any outdoor terrain, but are as comfortable as just wearing socks, and they protect your feet just as shoes would.
See my comfy lookies feeties? I LOVE 'EM!
