It’s Monday and the 5th day of Nurses Week. Today we are please to offer a $50 giftcard and Free Shipping from Ponto Footwear. With a need to find a greener way, two guys Aaron & Joey set about finding a better way to make shoes for men and women. They’re made of almost 100% recycled materials. And the sole is made from plant-based foam, which gives a great cushion to the comfy shoe. In addition the name Ponto gives a nod to their childhood So. California beach and they donate a portion of each purchase to the Ocean Cleanup Project among other great programs. And when you’re ready for a new pair, Ponto will essentially buy back your Ponto Footwear through your donation to Soless4Souls program; reducing the waste in landfills. Donate your gently loved shoes to Soles4Souls and they’ll give you $20 credit towards new Ponto shoes.
I received my review pair late Saturday and I have to say they’re great! The shoes are quite flexible and very light weight. I have to say I’m really impressed. The first design is a “dress sneaker” that’s simple but “looks like work, and wears like leisure.” The shoes live up to this description very well. They warn you to go up a half size because the shoes fit well. They’re designed for a sock less foot. I have to say, I can’t go sock less, but I do have some nice really thin ankle socks ( from Amazon – affiliate link) and they work really well together. I ordered my normal size. Yes I probably could go up that 1/2 size, but these fit well and are quite comfortable. I did have to use a shoe horn because the backs are so flexible that they bend over and for me it was just easier to slip on with an aide. If I was 20 again and extremely flexible, I wouldn’t need anything.
To be honest, I wasn’t sure about them, but I really like them. I asked for the black ones. Black shoes often make my feet look tiny and awkward, but these do Not. So I’m impressed! I think they’ll do nicely for work and I was in need of new black shoes. So it’s a Win for me! YAY! Thanks Joey!!!
