Mother's Day: Making Memories- Part Two

Mother's Day: Making Memories- Part Two

Mother’s Day is a time when we look forward to celebrating Mom’s everywhere. It’s usually a day where restaurants are packed with families giving Mom the day off, backyards full of Dad’s grilling, kids running around and Mom’s sipping on well-deserved Mimosa’s or a nice, tall glass of iced tea.

This year, Mother’s Day is going to be celebrated much differently for most of us. The one thing that no pandemic can take away is how much we all love the women in our lives.

Of course, we know that Mom always deserves a great pair of shoes, so we have all our new summer sandals on sale for 25% off through Monday, 5/11.
Shop, find the “MOM” tab and get yourself and any other deserving woman in your life a great pair of summer sandals!

This year, we have gathered pics and thoughts from our team at Walking Cradles and want to share those with you! Each day, we will feature 3 different ones for you to enjoy! 


Jamie Wells, Shoe Design and Product Development

This Mother’s Day, we will be dropping off gifts at each of our parents’ homes.

 I will probably be wearing the Heather in the metallic leopard print leather.

My mom will likely wear the Orleans in the black and white snake print,

and she will be receiving the Stella in black micro as a gift! I bet my mother-in-law will be wearing the Valerie in bronze leather. She will be receiving a pair of WCs as a gift, too, but I haven’t decided which ones yet… maybe Spencer or Avery.

Lisa Schmitz, Marketing & Creative

Here’s me and my mom on a trip to Hawaii some years ago, and also a pic of us on Christmas, when I was 2.

The funny thing about pics with my mom is that I have so many of them with her and the kids, but so few of the two of us. I guess I’m always the one taking the pics! Note to self: get more pics with Mom!

This year is going to be so much different because we usually host Mother’s Day for both sides of the family. Now with social distancing preventing this, we will have to spend time separately with my mom, my mother-in-law and our kiddos. It’s a bummer, but we are all healthy, so I’m definitely counting my blessings!

Since we will be having a casual day on Sunday, I will definitely be wearing my Leopard Print Heather sandals!

If I had to take a guess, I would say that my mom will be wearing the Spencer in Navy, and my Mother-in-Law will be wearing the Shea in Light Taupe.

Here is a pic of me and my mom, Kim on Mother’s Day 2019! We snapped a quick selfie before enjoying some BBQ my stepdad Brian prepared for us!

This year, (weather permitting) we still plan to BBQ, and enjoy some fresh air together on their patio! My mom is planning to wear the Heather in Metallic Leopard Fabricand I plan on rocking the Keegan in Black NubuckHappy Mother’s day to all you strong & amazing women!
