A Day to Celebrate Mom In Comfort

We love our moms so much and always look for ways to make them happy. This Mother’s Day, introduce her to the wonderful world of Ja-Vie flats!

Let’s face it, gals: Motherhood is just another word for running. We run to pick up the kids from piano practice, then run home and fix dinner, just in time to run back to soccer practice. The next day we run them to school, so we can run to work then run back home to fix dinner! Aren’t your feet getting sore just thinking about it all?

The super-comfy construction of Ja-Vie flats cushions your feet in a cloud of comfort, no matter what you’re doing. There’s a style to suit every mother’s need, whether she’s a new mom, experienced mom, or a grand-mom. Here are a few of our suggestions:

New Mom: Our cuddly Black and White Baby Dot Flats or our mood-boosting Daisy Flats with their perky flowers, would be the perfect addition to every new mom's wardrobe. We know exactly how it feels to need a pick-me-up while running errands on such little sleep!

Busy Mom: For moms with a little ones who keep them running, our go-anywhere Indigo Stripe Flats are the perfect throw on with jeans, as are one of our newest must-haves, the Denim Tropical Flats.

Yoga/Fitness Mom: Suppose Mom is into yoga or tai-chi. Our Santa Fe or Desert Stripe Flats will fill the bill.

Nature Mom: Our fashionable Compression Socks will help with swelling and keep her legs protected while running or hiking outdoors.

Cool Mom: The Camouflage Flats are for the super cool, street-style moms or those modern "country" gals! Cool fashion trendy moms will also LOVE the Tropical Flats- a bright fun addition to the Spring/Summer wardrobe.

Grand-Mom: If your mother is a granny, help her kick the stereotype of that age group with Ja-Vie’s that tell the world she’s arrived. For this, try the True Red Flats or the brand new Havana Flats.

Every Mom: If it’s just too hard to select from among all our luscious styles, give Mom a Ja-Vie gift card and let her go wild, selecting her own favorites.

 

***Remember, if you want your super Ja-Vie surprise in time for the big day, you MUST order by May 5th to ensure it arrives in time.***

Navy is Nautical!

Navy and white have been making headlines all season long, and our NEW Ja-Vie styles fall perfectly into this fashionable trend! This iconic color scheme looks good on everyone and says... “Take me on a boat!” This week, we put together a few cute spring outfits that you can wear anywhere, floating or not.

The new Navy Ruffle Ja-Vie flat has just the right amount of class and fun to be flexible enough for day and night. Crisp navy and white can be worn as a casual spring outfit to brunch, or dress in navy silk stripes for a trendy, glamorous night out with your guy! This ruffle design, (one of our top sellers in Black), was requested in Navy by so many Ja-Vie gals, that we were happy to deliver it! It’s the perfect basic, with a fun twist!

The new Denim Tropical Ja-Vie flat is another “on-trend” design that we couldn’t resist. This jelly shoe design is designed with comfort in mind! They look so chic with an all-white outfit, or with your favorite white or denim jeans. You’ll have everyone asking where they’re from and trust us - you’ll love how they make your feet feel! Looking good and feeling good = the ideal shoe for every woman!

Although our Anchors Away style has been in the line for a while, we wanted to remind you just how perfect these shoes are for Spring. The nautical jelly flats are trendy on and off shore, adding so much fun to your wardrobe. We’re loving the nautical designs in many collections this season, especially Tommy Hilfiger’s classic red, white and navy pieces and the new Victoria Beckham for Target collection!

The History & Benefits of Jelly Shoes

Jelly shoes, also known as jellies, have been around since the late 40s. The exact origin is somewhat debated. Many people believe that a shoe maker in France designed the first pair of Jelly shoes shortly after World War II, when there was a shortage of leather in Europe. They were introduced to the US in 1983 when a buyer at Bloomingdale’s placed an order to bring jelly shoes to their fashionable customers.

Jelly shoes are not only a way to show your fun, fashionable side, but there are a ton of practical reasons to wear them too!

  • Easy Care: Jelly shoes are the easiest shoes to clean. Wipe with a damp cloth and your shoes are as good as new!
  • Easy Wearing: The fun, one piece design allows for a quick shoe switch, or the perfect “run out the door” shoe!
  • Flexible Lightweight Design: The dynamic flexibility of jelly shoes make them very slip resistant, and a great shoe for rainy days! The lightweight design will keep you quick on your feet, while staying comfortable all day long.

 

Ja-Vie flats are the updated, chic version of original jelly shoes. They have the same practical reasons as the originals, but with over 60 stylish designs and far more benefits:


  • Knit Lining : Our 100% soft, breathable cotton knit lining in every pair of Ja-Vie shoes is the key to a blister-free fit.
  • Machine Washable: After removing the leather insoles, toss your stylish Ja-Vies in the wash to get them squeaky clean!
  • Leather Insoles: Ja-Vie leather insoles are pillows for your feet. With an endless amount of benefits, you’ll never want to take off your Ja-Vie jelly flats. OH AND... you can now have the comfort of Ja-Vie in every shoe with our replacement insoles

Khaki can be muted, and although a practical material, it can come across as boring. Our Camel Leopard flats will make sure your outfit isn’t too bland, and they add just the right amount of POP to any ensemble. Our Ja-Vie Black Cap/Nude Beige flatsShimmering Gold option, or our gorgeous Sand/Charcoal Snake-Print style will help to bring this trend into a wide range of outfits, from jeans to work attire, ensuring comfort and fashion.

You'll be able to chase the kiddos all day long while they hunt for eggs, blister-free! This spring style flat is on sale for $39 today and tomorrow only + you get FREE shipping! Of course, our favorite Ja-Vie style to pair with this season’s hottest color is Daisy: flirty little daisies on a field of black (so the flowers stand out better), with bits of yellow in the center of each flower.

Three Cheers for Our Dog-Loving Contest Winners!

Don’t we just adore our loyal little doggies? Oh, yeah! And don’t we just love-love-love walking them in our ultra-comfy, puddle-proof Ja-Vie’s? You bet we do! And all you great Ja-Vie Gals (and super guys) proved that with your terrific entries in our #JaVieWalksTheDog Contest.

To remind all of our fans, as well as all of you who are new to Ja-Vie, we recently held a contest asking readers to submit pictures of their pups and tell us why Ja-Vie’s are not only great for walking your dog, but are also absolutely necessary for everyday life: because of their darling styles, outstanding comfort, easy (washable) care, and rain resistance. And, not incidentally, the contest was our way to introduce our soon-to-be-available, totally awesome design feature: personalized photos on your very own custom-made Ja-Vie’s!

Our readers voted on which entries they considered to be the cutest little darlings (really hard choices!). As far as we’re concerned, anyone who is owned by a furry friend is already a winner, but here are the champs as selected by our readers. Each winner gets a custom-made pair of our super-comfy Ja-Vie’s with their dog’s picture on the shoes. And they have promised to share photos of their custom-made shoes the instant they receive them. So watch this space!

And now, without further ado, here are the lucky winners and their dogs.



Linda Pittman’s tiny toy poodle Bella just loves everyone, and Linda walks her by a small lake near her house, wearing—of course—her Ja-Vie’s. She says they’re super-cute and comfy, no doubt because of their arch, heel, and ball support. She would know, because as a teacher, she’s on her feet all day and loves how her feet don’t get tired with her Ja-Vie’s.

 

Barb Dodge Dixon’s Jack Russell mix Georgie is an excellent watch dog and is very protective of his little people. Barb doesn’t yet own a pair of Ja-Vie’s, but is so excited to be receiving her pair, and plans to wear them to work. Boy, is she in for a treat!

 

Abraham Liandro’s golden retriever Max can stay, shake hands and sit. Good dog! Abraham plans to give his custom-made Ja-Vie’s to his sister (featured in this adorable picture), so she can walk Max in the park and the woods. She already owns several pair, and simply raves about how comfy they are, because they relieve pressure and impact on your feet while you walk.

 

This is Lucy. Melissa Cripe and her family adopted Lucy from a local animal shelter and she has changed their lives!  She is thought to be a German Shepherd mix and is about a year and a half years old. They love to take walks together and snuggle in for the night. Lucy loves to tear the stuffing out of any plush toy she finds. She can also be found on the trampoline with Melissa's kids. They often wonder, who rescued who?

 

 

Thanks to all for your entries and your votes!

 

Make sure to check out over 60 styles of Ja-Vie's on our site and keep an eye out for the newest styles coming next month!

Ja-Vie Walks The Dog

It’s no secret by now that we are huge fans of anything covered in fur over here at Ja-Vie! I’m a huge animal lover & judging from our latest #JavieWalksTheDog Contest, you gals are too! We absolutely loved seeing all of your furry friends from near and far. As our contest has come to a close, I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite features of Ja-Vie Flats that make them the best shoes to walk your dog in!

Weatherproof:

Rain or shine, when Fido’s gotta go, he’s gotta go! Instead of having to check the weather channel before you take your pup outside, just put a pair of Ja-Vie’s by the door and you’ll be ready to ‘weather’ any weather. Ja-Vie’s have a jelly outsole that makes them puddle proof.

Washable:

We all know what comes along with owning a pet.. and we all have stepped in it once or twice, right?! I don’t know about you, but I’d rather not ruin a pair of shoes over it. Ja-Vie’s are machine washable so you don’t even have to get your hands dirty!

Comfortable:

This one goes without saying – this is what Ja-Vie is known for! The comfort factor is almost unbelievable. With arch, heel and ball support, you’ll feel like you’re walking your furry friend on Cloud 9. Not to mention you won’t come home with any blisters!

Stylish:

With tons of patterns and colors to choose from, it’s easy to look put together even when you’re just letting the dog out. Ja-Vie’s also match just about everything and can be dressed up or down. So if you’re still in your PJ’s or getting ready to leave for a day at the office, they’ve got you covered.

Beneficial:

Along with all of the other features listed above, Ja-Vie’s also relieve pressure and soreness put on your feet while walking. They also absorb the impact. With that being said, you can take your pooch for another trip around the block!

And now, without further ado & the moment you’ve all been waiting for – OUR WINNERS! Congratulations to:

    1. Barb Dodge Dixon (1177 votes)
    2. Linda Pittman (889 votes)
    3. Melissa Cripe (870 votes)

Thank you to everyone who shared their photos with us! You gals & your pets are awesome and we appreciate all of you.


XO,

That Ja-Vie Girl
