Sponsor Spotlight Review ~ Zipz Shoes {Spring Shoe Runway}

spring shoes

It is a perfect time to showcase your favorite Spring Shoes. Kobiso and Jamie’s Precious Peas are proud to present Spring Shoe Runway Event.

Sponsoring my giveaway for the Spring Shoe Runway event is Zipz Shoes!

About Zipz:
    ZIPZ® are removable and interchangeable shoes, like nothing you’ve owned before! Match any ZIPZ® COVERS with any same size ZIPZ® SOULS to create one of-a-kind mix and match shoes. Our shoes are handmade to ensure comfort, quality, and reliability. Invented in California, Designed in the U.S.
Zipz are available in adult youth and toddler sizes (toddler 8-11 it would be kinda difficult to get a zipper on anything smaller). Toddler sized covers come in 2 different styles, the 2 strap and the T-strap. The adult and youth sized covers are available in hi-top, lo-top and zip-on (slip-on). There are many colors and prints to choose from as well! Here's a photo of each style:

My experience: 
I received a pair of Zipz by winning a giveaway on the Zipz Facebook page! I was contacted by the owner John Stefani to claim my prize so I took the opportunity to ask him to sponsor this giveaway! I chose the Zip-On style because I have been wanting some new slip on shoes. Since having Charlotte my shoes don't fit as well anymore. At least that's the excuse I use to get new shoes and maybe clothes! Let's start my experience with the shipping. My Zipz were shipped in a fabulous Zipz shoe box inside another shipping box. Care was definitely taken to insure that my awesome new kicks arrived in excellent condition. (Mom's can say "Kicks" right? I just picture Amber rolling her eyes) 
The selection of styles is very hip and could really be for any age! Don't worry if you don't think your hip enough, they have solid colors too. But I assure you, you are hip enough to wear these! They are double padded and are comfortable enough for me to wear to my cashier job. I would have to say that they were a little on the larger side. I love this because children can still grow into them and I worry about buying shoes online just in case they are too small. No worries here! I also love the construction of Zipz. The "souls" are very durable. Amber wears shoes out like she is Fred Flinstone driving. She has been wearing OUR Zipz for a few weeks and they still look new (a little dirty but not worn out)
OK, We have discussed comfort, style & durability. Let's talk VERSATILITY! Women change their minds. Frequently. I changed my hair color so many times in high school that for a while I didn't know what my natural color was. Zipz allow you to change your shoes easily, anytime, without buying a whole new pair! In the video below I will show you how awesome this feature is! Here is a list of benefits I have found with wearing Zipz:
  • Storage- having 1 or 2 "souls" and several covers for them significantly cuts down on closet clutter. A serious space saver!
  • Money savings- You could buy a pair of Zipz and an extra cover for half the price of a single pair of shoes! You can get a great deal right now with their TV special: $49.95 for a complete pair PLUS an extra cover! That's basically 2 pairs for $50!!! There's a link at the end of the review!
  • Easy to wash- You can literally zip off the tops and toss them into the washer and dryer! I don't like doing this normally because the heat melts the glue in the sole and my shoe is ruined. Being able to wash only the top is genius!
  • Variety: You could go from a hip print at school to a classic look for work by simply taking along a pair of solid colored tops in your purse or backpack and changing in the car!

Check out Zipz on Facebook and Twitter! Remember, I won this pair on their Facebook page!
