The Perfect Mardi Gras Shoe Has Arrived Mommas :: Mox Shoes
Dear NOLA moms,
I’ve found your next great shoe…Mox Shoes!
I am a mom to twin toddler boys so comfort is my #1 priority when dressing myself these days. I often find myself in the stay at home mom uniform of yoga pants, tennis shoes, and some kind of athlesiure top. I need to be able to chase my kids, carry two boys at one time, and be able to survive a parade route all day. Far too often, I’ve had to sacrifice fashion for function.
I dreamed of, wished for, and fantasized about a shoe that was actually cute and wouldn’t have me cursing myself halfway through whatever activity I had planned that day. Plus, if I didn’t have to plan every outfit around tennis shoes, maybe I could open up my wardrobe options to include more than workout clothes! (Yes please!) I’ve tried every shoe under the sun, but I never found that magic one…until I discovered the Mox Shoe. To say it’s been a revelation has been an understatement. They are cute, and they can survive a night in the quarter or a weekend of Mardi Gras parades or a day of tailgating or simply chasing two wild boys all around the Crescent City. THEY HOLD UP.
I ordered my first pair in green and I think it’s the perfect shoe for a NOLA mom. I wore them throughout the Christmas holidays and now they are transitioning perfectly as I head into Mardi Gras season. They are bright and fun and fashionable AND they are a friend to my feet, not an enemy!
And one of my favorite perks of the Mox Shoe is how much easier it makes life for a mom on the go. What shoe should I pack for Disney? The Mox Shoes are perfect! What shoe should I wear to the Muses parade? Definitely my Mox Shoes! What shoe can I wear to Jazz Fest? The Mox Shoes it is! What shoe can I take on my beach vacation and wear to a nice dinner or on the beach with my swim suit? The Mox Shoes! What shoe can I pack in my carryon because my kids have taken up all of the other luggage space and that’s all I’ve been left with and now I need to pack a week’s worth of clothes into the smallest suitcase we own? The Mox Shoes!!!
It is a friend to moms everywhere! I’ve recently purchased them in a few more colors because it’s one of the best investments I’ve made in my wardrobe since becoming a mom. I love that it takes the guesswork out of trying to look cute and be practical at the same time. And the absolute best part is that they are affordable.
NOLA moms…It’s almost time to strap on our purple, green, and gold and carry ladders through the streets of New Orleans while pulling our children in wagons behind us. We will lug coolers packed with food we prepared and bought. We walk countless miles down the avenue, through the quarter, and along neutral grounds. We will get there early to claim the best spot. We will dance our booties off to the sounds of brass bands. We will navigate beads, and ladders, and coolers as we venture to find bathrooms. We will hoist children onto our shoulders and walk along floats while chanting “throw my something mister!” And we will give up our chairs when tiny feet have had too much. And then we will carry exhausted children in our arms as we head home. And gosh darn, we deserve to look good and FEEL good doing it!
As for me and my feet, we will be doing to mardi gras MOM-bo in our green Mox Shoes!
