Father's Day Gift Giving Guide -- Dr. Scholl's -- Guys Love Their Shoes, Too (Review)

Dr. Scholl's Men's Warren Sandal

Does your husband love shoes just as much as you do?  Well, this is the case with my husband.  When I was putting away his clothes the other day, I counted his shoe collection -- 15 pairs in total.  He has dress sneakers, running sneakers, mowing sneakers, play sneakers, dress shoes in brown and black, and casual loafers.  Then, I looked in my closet and only counted 6 pairs of shoes. I have to admit that since welcoming the girls in 2010 and 2011, my need for a closet full of clothes has declined, and I find that having a good pair of sneakers, dress shoes and slippers is all that I need.  

Every Christmas, I get my husband socks, underwear and undershirts.  And, then for his birthday, I would get him a pair of shoes.  But, now that he is a dad, I have been combining his birthday and Father's Day gifts, as they are just days apart.  He still gets separate cards, but now the girls surprise him with a pair of shoes to add to his growing collection.  And, this year is no different.  I was surprised to find that he didn't own a pair of Dr. Scholl's when I was counting his shoe collection.  I, myself, have been a fan of Dr. Scholl's shoes for years, for their comfort and style.  So, I thought we would surprise him with a couple pairs of Dr. Scholl's shoes for Father's Day.  

I was excited to have the folks at Dr. Scholl's send me a pair of their Dodd and Adam style shoes for my husband to try out.  I wish I had taken a photo when I showed him the shoes.  He was like a kid seeing his gifts on Christmas morning -- with a smile from ear to ear.  After trying them both on and walking around with them, I asked him which style he liked better.  He couldn't choose as he said he could think of different occasions to wear each shoes for, including casual and dressy.  As part of my review, I told my husband I needed to take photos of him wearing the shoes, to show off the different styles.  Now, my husband is not a model, but you would swear he was by his poses in the following photos.  As you view these photos, know that I asked him to act casual and not to pose.  This is what I got ---

Can you tell he liked these shoes from Dr. Scholl's by his photos?  Well, he does, and now picks out his outfits to match his shoes.  Out of all the birthday/Father's Day gifts he received this year, he said by far, his favorite gift were these two pairs of shoes.  And, going forward, he will be checking out the Dr. Scholl's shoe collection, when looking for new shoes.  He couldn't believe how comfortable they were, and offered great support and fit.

With Father's Day right around the corner, why not pick up a pair of Dr. Scholl's shoes for your Dad?  Dr. Scholl’s Shoes has something for every kind of dad, whether his style leans more towards casual and athletic or sophisticated and fashionable – all under $99!
