We Love Jambu Shoes! 4 Picks From The Latest Styles
Jambu shoes have been a longtime favorite of us here at the Barking Dog. Years ago, Jambu shoes caught our attention by uniquely combining sublime comfort with cute styling, and including feminine details on otherwise sporty shoes. We’re happy to say the brand still comes through all fronts! Out-of-the-box wearability, good arch support, soft linings, memory foam footbeds, and odor-fighting Microban antimicrobial treatment are just a few features that keep us coming back. The numerous vegan-friendly and wide width options are added bonuses. While they may feel as comfy as sneakers, many styles of Jambu shoes are wonderfully versatile – perfect for travel (or for maximizing a limited shoe budget). Here are four of our favorite styles:
The Jambu Cornflower features the kind of comfort and sensible beauty that have made the Jambu brand a modern classic. Soft kid suede uppers offer a luxurious feel while a memory foam footbed and lightweight outsole keep things comfy underfoot. Floral and lace trim embellishments provide the feminine details we’ve always loved in Jambu shoes. A hook-and-loop closure means easy adjustability, and the non-slip All-Terra outsole (which incidentally features an adorable map design) provides wear-anywhere practicality. The Jambu Cornflower receives the APMA (American Medical Podiatric Association) seal of acceptance for promoting good foot health. Available for $110 in medium and wide widths from Amazon and Jambu, and in medium width only at Zappos.
The Jambu Free Spirit Encore is a water-friendly shoe perfect for beach walking, stream wading, or boating, but is cute enough to hit the town. The open and airy styling is uniquely paired with sneaker-like support for all day comfort. The stretchy uppers and grippy outsoles offer practicality whether you’re in water or not. Online reviewers love the out-of-box comfort and cute styling of this fun, vegan shoe. Available in medium and wide widths for $110 at Jambu, $90-$110 at Zappos, and $50-$100 at Amazon (medium width only).
We love the skate-inspired Jambu Erin fashion sneaker for its sweet style sense which includes fun floral cut-outs and use of various textures on the upper. Elastic bungee side laces make it easy to slip on and off, and supple pigskin and faux-pigskin linings provide a wonderfully soft interior feel. A memory foam footbed and non-slip traction rubber outsole add function to this adorable shoe. “They are so darn cute. I would wear them every day if I could,” says one reviewer. $108-$110 at Zappos, Amazon, and Jambu.com.
If you’re familiar with Jambu & Co., you may have realized the company has a couple of subsidiary brands. One of these is JBU, which offers the beautiful, vegan-friendly JBU Caymen sandal. Don’t let the stylish lizard- embossed straps and espadrille detailing fool you, this sandal is still full of practical features like a memory foam footbed and hidden hook-and-loop fastener (beautifully concealed under a sleek metal buckle). Available from Amazon ($17-$45), Zappos ($38-45) and Jambu.com. ($75).
