Tuesday Travels: Walking on Sunshine – Win a Pair of Olivia by Crocs

traveWelcome to Tuesday Travels, a summertime series at Traveling with Baby.  This season, my son and I are excited about sharing some local day trips and field trip ideas for families with little ones.  This weekly series will also feature travel tips for families with kids-in-tow and related product reviews and giveaways.  I enjoy hearing about your traveling adventures, too.  If you have an idea for Tuesday Travels, please e-mail me: drgarnecki[at]gmail[dot]com.


When I travel by plane or car, I always wear my most comfortable pair of shoes.  It used to be sneakers, but those were too restricting when blood would pool to my feet after sitting for hours and hours and hours!  Ever since I was gifted with my first pair of turquoise beach Crocs, they have been my top choice for unfettered comfort in travel ever since.

Olivia is loaded with personality.

These sweet and demure slingbacks bring a spring to my step.  They were turning heads left and right with the attractive blingy rhinestone button on the side.  I felt like Dorothy in her ruby red slippers when I slipped these babies on my tootsies.

My patients noticed them right away.

Ooooh.  Are those new Crocs?  Those are REALLY cool!

olivia_10335_side_506I heard comments along that tune multiple times at the office.  That’s quite a big deal because, Folks, I have NEVER EVER had compliments on my shoes.  NEVER.  NOT ONCE.

Yes, I did wear combat boots for a few years.  Yes, I do prefer to live in my sneakers (even when I’m wearing skirts).  But, I think I have finally understood why so many women love shoes.

Pretty shoes are so much FUN!

What’s SO great about these shoes, besides the fact that they’re red and cute, is that they’re flats with molded arch support.

As a chiropractor, I absolutely recommend Crocs to my patients who suffer from scoliosis or low back pain.

They’re perfect for folks with flat feet or high arches.  They’re wonderful for anyone who has to be on her feet all day long, yet she wants to feel as fresh as a daisy at the end of the day, as well.  They’re great for anyone who suffers from low back pain, or a woman in the end stages of pregnancy who needs breathable foot support and the capability of slipping them on/off herself without bending over.

Besides the looking and feeling great at the office, they’re also fun to wear at the pool.
