Let me just get right to the point. When it comes to fashion, I will ALWAYS choose comfort over style. Sometimes there is a rare intersection of the two factors, but in my experience with shoes, that is a rare occurrence! Jambu are comfortable shoes for women that are actually stylish!

This is also always on my mind when packing for Paris. I am a Francophile at heart who admires the chic nature of the Parisian women, but I am also generally walking 10-15 miles a day. What to do? Nothing screams “tourist” more than a pair of tennis sneakers, although I do get away with my kicks. However, you don’t need to look like you’ve just come from the gym to be comfortable.

I had never heard of Jambu and am so grateful they reached out to collaborate. Jambu has 3 brands. Trendy looks focused on comfort and fashion from JBU (Just Be You), and Jsport with sporty options spotlighting comfortable, casual, shoes with sports appeal, plus with the core line, Jambu.

No matter what your adventure, or misadventure in my case, there is a perfect style of Jambu for you. Over the past few weeks, I test drove the following autumn models:

Jambu Sunkist Sandals

You guys know that you can often find the hubby and me out and about on weekend adventures. Lots of outdoor shoes are very comfortable, that’s kind of the point, but rarely would you call them cute or stylish. This is why I am head over heels in love with the Jambu Sunkist which of course I got in red!

I tested them out for the first time when we went camping at Toroweap Overlook in the Grand Canyon. This is a rough-and-tumble spot that requires a high clearance 4×4 vehicle so there weren’t any nice paths or sidewalks. I was worried that I was going to ruin these shoes the first weekend out, but that was absolutely NOT the case! The shoes have what Jambu calls “All Terra Traction” which is partially recycled compressed rubber bottoms that are very durable.

We hiked from our camp spot to the overlook for sunset photography and the foam footbed was comfortable and handled the rocky terrain with ease. Given that inaugural weekend, and the ways the shoes “handled” I am wearing these all the time!

Jambu Miranda and Rimini Booties

My last job in San Francisco was the Director of Social Media at a private bank. I was required to wear business clothing 4 days a week. I worked in the Financial District and walked from BART (how I commuted) and out to lunch along with my many rotations around the office for meetings and visits with my team. I rarely wore heels because after an hour or two my feet would kill me. My regular shoe of choice was long black boots.

They are currently gathering dust at the bottom of my closet because I haven’t really had a need for them in the desert and they are kind of cumbersome to travel with when I go to Paris. I thought my “boot life” was over until I discovered the cute botties from Jambu. I love the look of boots with jeans, so when I am going out and want to be more stylish I now throw on my Rimini in black or Miranda in whiskey. As you may notice, it is too hot to wear full-length socks so I wear booties!

Jambu Emma Boots

I took my new Jambu Emma to the back-country while chasing the Aspen tree leaf changing at the Grand Canyon North Rim. After spending a day there at the end of our Toroweap Overlook camping adventures, we knew we wanted to return because the meadows and the trees are stunning. On our first trip to the North Rim, we did the classic car tour at Bright Angel, Cape Royal, and Point Imperial. When we returned a few weekends later we took the Jeep at went off-road.

I wasn’t hiking so I didn’t need a technical boot, but I don’t like the idea of traipsing around in the high grass and dusty roads in flats, so I grabbed my Emmas for the day. They were a good shoe for meandering through the trees and I’m looking forward to taking these with me to Paris this weekend. These boots have Jambu’s SATRA certified water-resistant materials. Water rolls off the surface, so if it rains while I am there – always a possibility in October, I should be just fine.

All the shoes are comfortable, they look good without having to try too hard and they don’t weigh a lot, which is perfect for packing in my suitcase. They were such a welcome refreshment to my wardrobe.

You can add them to your wardrobe too! Jambu Emma, RiminiSunkist, and Miranda are available on Amazon or buy direct from Jambu.com.

Oh it is true, at this age it's sometimes hard to find cute and comfy in the same shoe! I know, because I just went shoe shopping last week and came back empty handed! Will have to give these a try! Thanks!

Those Miranda boots are by far my favorite. They're so cute, I can hardly believe they're designed with comfort in mind. You totally rock every one of these!

My love has been sweeping me off for entire weekend-long escapades lately... I think I might need to invest in a pair of these instead of my own heels. They're getting old fast!

The Rimini booties are calling my name. I love how on trend they are, without being uncomfortable.

I live for that 'rare intersection' and it's pretty hard to come by. Glad you found a company that works well for you!
