October is Women Walking in Their Own Shoes Month

October is Women Walking in Their Own Shoes Month. Though you may not be familiar with the WWITOS movement; I’m going to let you know how important this month is for women everywhere. In addition, the WWITOS movement is a worldwide call for women to say “Yes” to their passion, power, and purpose.

October is Women Walking in Their Own Shoes

Since the Fall season is underway, it’s time to put away your flip-flops and replace them with a pair of comfortable shoes. Moreover, it is never fun to spend a day wearing a pair of shoes that cause foot pain.

When you think about it, how many of us have worn a pair of shoes that don’t fit well just to look good? Or, have you worn a style that was too tight or big that end up causing you serious foot pain?

Therefore, it is important that any shoes you slip your feet into provide comfort.

WWOTS Movement

Meanwhile, if you are not familiar with the WWOTS Movement; this started in October 2012. Since that time, the purpose of this movement is to get women to embrace themselves.

Because I haven’t seen any new updates for some time; I’m unsure if this program is still around. However, their goal is important for women everywhere.

- Become your best self

- Confront your fears

- Live your best life

- Navigate your own life – live on your own terms

In the same way, women need to grow and continue to reach the glass ceiling in their careers and achieve their goals in life. For inspiration, be sure to visit my Celebrate Strong Inspirational Women post.

Shoes Made for Walking

Since the pandemic, more people are walking. And, women have no plans to slow down.

So, say “Yes” to a new pair of shoes to have you walking for hours in. When you are looking for a new pair of shoes; my advice is to go shoe shopping in either the afternoon or evening.
