Many people experience painful feet during the day, they wear shoes without the right support. Pain in the heel and feet are two things that everyone wants to avoid. I share the same opinion. Hi! Let me introduce myself first. My name is Anouk and I am 35 years old. I currently live in beautiful Utrecht together with my lovely boyfriend Jasper, we have lived here for more than 10 years and I am loving this city. I like to spend my leisure time with friends and family. Or going on adventure and take a walk in the woods.
Going out with my Blundstones
During the week I try to exercise as much as possible. Apart from exercising 3 times a week, I also aspire to reach 10,000 steps every day. Unfortunately, I don't always succeed. ;) Someone who motivates (and maybe forces) me to go outside is our sweet dog Beau. Because of Beau I really started a healthier lifestyle by going for long walks more often.
Besides the walks with the dog, I also really relax with a good book. After a long day at work, there is nothing better than laying down on the sofa, shoes off, feet up, cup of tea and a good book. At moments like that, time flies by.
We have lived in the heart of Utrecht with our small family for a while now, the walks for us and the dog are often not surrounded by a green environment, but often by residential areas and streets, and therefore fairly monotonous. I thought this had to change, so I decided to drive at least 2 or 3 times to a forest to have a long walk with my friend and the dog. I can tell you, it's great!
The beautiful nature, green surroundings and the sun on your face. During these walks I walk on my favorite pair of Blundstones, namely model 1912. Unfortunately, I didn't know this right away during my first walks. I used to walk wearing other boots until my feet started to hurt a lot. When I discovered Blundstone, I was amazed by the comfort!! I no longer had sore or tired feet. Please read my story below :)
Time to relax
Most of the time we take the car when we go to the forest. The forest is not close. There are different forests in the Province of Utrecht. Hours pass when we are in the forest for a long walk. We often arrive there before 9 A.M. and go back sometimes around 1 P.M. That seems like a long time but we love a long walk and Beau also enjoys a good time. We love to escape from the busy city life every now and then.
How do you keep up with that?
I hear you thinking. “if you go out for a walk that often, which shoes do you wear?”. Exactly, that was my struggle in the beginning as well. I quickly suffer from sore feet and with all that mud you want shoes which offer you good support. I always find it important that the shoes can be cleaned easily and that I still look fashionable. I got you!
Before, I often wore the wrong boots. For example, I went out for a day to the city with a friend of mine and after a few hours my feet started to hurt. There was even a time when I suffered from this more often and therefore also got heel spur. In case you don't know it yet, heel spur is a calcification of the tendon plate on the heel bone that sometimes causes an inflammation under the heel. This causes a lot of pain in your heel and I can tell you, it is terrible! As I really like walking and hiking, I noticed that I did not have the right boots. Then the brand Blundstone crossed my path. These boots feel like heaven!

I quickly found an article on the internet, they said that taking a rest is very important. It also stated that on average women suffer from it a lot more than men. Regardless, I wasn’t going to have my heel pain forever. Fortunately, heel spurs are often treatable and can be resolved in a few weeks to months. In my case, my shoes were not the right ones. They were not providing the right support. Time for change! Since i wear Blundstone i walk 10 km without any pain.
