Springtime is almost upon us where I live and it is my favourite time of year. It always gives me a feeling of optimism, hope, freshness and new beginnings. Oh and of course, the latest fashion!
Nothing says spring and summer like bright, happy colours and today I’m excited to be reviewing the first of two styles from the Homyped Spring/Summer collection – Jirany.
If you don’t know much about the Homyped brand, it started in Victoria, Australia in 1969. They create anatomically designed footwear using innovative bio-mechanical features for superior support, comfort and these days…style! You can read more about the brand here (link: https://www.homyped.com.au/our-difference/).
Now I have to be honest and say that when I think of new shoes, I don’t really associate style with ‘anatomical design’. Comfort is important, but how many times have we fallen in love with a pair of shoes even though they were uncomfortable to walk in? We have all been there, to the detriment of our backs and feet!
However, with age comes wisdom – or so they say – and we now look for a style that is comfortable, but doesn’t make us feel or look like our grandmothers! I know I’m a grandmother but that doesn’t mean I can’t wear the latest styles. I’m Sizzling Towards Sixty remember!Comfortable doesn't have to be boring!Click To Tweet
When the lovely team from Homyped approached me to review their new season collection, I first checked out the website.
Although my memory of the original styles were somewhat staid and in my opinion made for comfort more than style, over the years their shoe design and style has reached a new level – and are suitable for all ages.
After viewing their collection online, I couldn’t wait to try the Jirany sandal. It not only looked great but after slipping my foot into it when it arrived in the post, I can assure you that it is SOOO comfortable to wear.
The reason I am happy to review their product is that it is top quality, excellent value for money, looks great and my feet feel like they are walking on a cloud. I run a lot so my poor feet get a good thrashing. I need something that will keep my feeling happy.
I love wearing this brand and the ‘Jirany’ proves you can combine style and comfort AND look fabulous! Apart from the colour, I love the detailing down the bridge of the foot. The beading makes this sandal very stylish and reminds me of an Ancient Egyptian theme. Perhaps I was Cleopatra in a former life!
This style also comes in Gold Dust and Black. I think the Gold Dust would be great to dress up an outfit for a stylish Spring/Summer lunch or dinner. Sizes range from 5 – 11.
One feature I was very happy with is the adjustable strap across your toes so that you can get the perfect width fit. There is nothing worse than have a pair of shoes that don’t fit snugly and comfortably. The adjustable width makes this the perfect shoe if you have been walking or standing all day and your feet are a little swollen.
I like that the website has a ‘Foot Sizing Chart’ that you can download and print. https://www.homyped.com.au/our-difference/the-homyped-difference/
Use it to make sure you get the right size and width. This is so convenient if you are shopping online and can’t make it to a store to be fitted for the correct size. I tried the sizing chart and found that in the Homyped range I am actually a Size 7 with a C+ width size.
What is so different about Homyped?
Reading through the Homyped website, I note that their shoes have a variety of features like Customised Fitting which allows for orthotic inserts. Plus shoes in their range are multi-adjustable and provide pressure reduction… just some of the personalised options available.
Now that I’ve worn the brand again after a number of years, I’m definitely returning to the fold. I can look good but more importantly, my feet will have the added benefits of comfort and support.
Plus The ‘Jirany’ also looks great with my fresh pedicure!
I’d love to know what you think of this style.
