Freewaters Self-Employed Shoes for the Self-Employed
For the self-employed, a casual shoe is an enigma. Do you wear something that looks good with a lot of outfits, and sacrifice comfort and ease of use in the process? Or do you simply opt for comfort, putting on a pair of slippers in the morning and not taking them off until it’s time to bed?
If you answered either of the above, you know just how hard it can be to find a casual shoe that matches style, comfort, and convenience in a synergistic way. But there is one shoe that accomplishes just that: Freewaters’ Self-Employed shoes – a shoe that certainly lives up to its name.
At first glance, you’ll notice that the Freewaters Self-Employed simply look comfortable. That’s because they are. They’re a little puffy around the ankles, designed to be snug and warm in case you’re heading out and running errands on a cold winter day. But they’re also designed to be functional, as is the case with the front zipper: simply open it up and you’ll be able to let the heat out.
Stylistically, the shoes succeed: the colors are warm and not so outlandish that they draw attention to themselves – if you’re self-employed and looking for a comfortable shoe, that’s a good thing. They’re also soled strongly enough that you can get around on pavement, driving a car, and generally handle any manner of daily outdoor tasks without feeling that you’re pushing the shoes to the limit.
You might not have to be self-employed to enjoy the Self-Employed, but it’s clear that this is a shoe that doesn’t mind being worn by those who need something that works both around the house and around the neighborhood. At just $80, these shoes also leave enough room in your pocketbook to pay those quarterly estimated taxes.
