Work hard, play hard. That’s what life is all about isn’t it? Well, in my case, also comfort. I don’t consider myself a fashionisto by any means but I’m the kind of guy who tries to keep up with trends and style, even with my classic sensibility.
I’ve always liked Rockport shoes since I was gifted a pair as a teenager. Since then, my love affair with the brand has grown and I love their #RockportChallenge because not only does it give me an opportunity to try out some of their best offerings, but it also gives me the opportunity to pass on some perks to you! Check the end of this post for an opportunity to win your very own pair of Rockport shoes!
DresSports Luxe is Rockport’s latest venture to combine the comfort of athletic shoes with the style of business dress shoes. And I have to say, I’m definitely a fan. I’m the type of person who believes you really shouldn’t be wearing tennis shoes (or sneakers or whatever you call them in your neck of the woods) unless you’re working out. It goes without saying that tennis shoes shouldn’t be paired with business or even business casual looks. But doesn’t mean that you have to suffer with foot pain throughout those long work days just to be dressed stylishly and appropriately.
Here are some of the features of DresSports Luxe:
- VIBRAM outsoles give a durable grip on a variety of surfaces
- Padded collars and tongues help prevent blisters and lace bruising
- Strobel construction provides forefoot flexibility
- Ortholite footbed with EVA cushioning provides fast comfort and lightweight support
- ADIPRENE® by adidas provides shock absorbing heel cushioning
- Rich leathers give immediate fit, comfort and become more beautiful with each wear and shine
I got to try out the brown Cap Toe Oxfords (pictured above) and they’re super comfortable. When I put them on the first time I actually thought about all the stylish but horribly uncomfortable dress shoes I’ve worn in my life. These shoes are padded for extra comfort and while they look like a very classic style, inside they are anything but. I definitely felt like I was walking on a well-supported cloud of air. I’ve still got to break them in a bit, but I have not experienced any blisters or discomfort that usually comes with a new pair of kicks.
Here’s your opportunity to win!
