Let’s widen our options, shall we? Blowfish Malibu is finally offering wide width sneakers in style, Fruit!
I’ve been with Blowfish Malibu for 5 ½ years now and, to be honest, shoes were never really my thing. That is until I started working here! I’m a curvy girl with wide feet and I have always had a tough time finding shoes that comfortably fit. (Let’s hear it for the comfort-over-style crowd!) Don’t get me wrong, I could wear a cute bootie or wedge to death, but I would much rather be wearing a comfy pair of sneakers or sandals.
However, I haven’t been able to wear some of my favorite sneaker styles from Blowfish Malibu because my feet were just too wide. (But give it up to Marley, which has always fit!) It’s such a bummer because I love representing the brand that I work for, plus I am always envious of my coworkers who can wear all of our shoes with ease. But that was then…
To say I was excited when I heard this is an understatement! I ordered a pair literally the day they became available on Shoe Carnival’s website, and I was NOT disappointed. These shoes fit like a dream and they have what we call a “super comfy, super cute” memory foam insole which, I kid you not, is like walking on clouds.
I completely get the hype of this sneaker now. Guys, I have worn them at least four times a week since I’ve gotten them.
So, if you’re like me and have a hard time finding stylish sneakers for your wider feet, get a pair of Fruit. They are available in either black or grey from Shoe Carnival. You will not regret it!

Three of our favorite sneakers for spring.
Spring is the month to bloom, my friends! I’m sure you are just as excited as I am to welcome spring with open arms. The weather is getting slightly warmer, the sun is out longer, the hills are green, and the flowers are blooming. But those aren’t the only things I’m excited about. It’s the fact that we can now begin to shift our wardrobe from winter to spring! So long, bulky layers. See ya later, beanies. Until next time, sweaters. Because it’s spring now! It’s time to break out those mini dresses and match them with your favorite Blowfish Malibu sneakers.
For those gals living the active lifestyle, we bring to your attention the Mazaki sneaker. This sneaker is everything you want and more! With a knit upper, decorative contrast laces and a cushioned footbed, Mazaki is a sneaker you’ll be wearing all season long. They also pair nicely with your favorite pair of cut offs and a white tee for a look that is effortlessly Californian.
Freshly picked for spring, and a personal favorite of mine, is the Fruit sneaker. This low-rise sneaker features a pre-distressed upper with top-stitching, terry cloth lining, slip-on entry, decorative laces, and decorative zipper. Not to mention, this baby has an ultra-comfortable super foam insole. Pair these with just about anything for a cool, laidback look. Hey Blowfish mamas, this sneaker is also available for kids and selective colors for toddlers!
Munky is a new style inspired by the laid-back vibes of Southern California. Wear as a sneaker, or push down the back tab with your heel for an easy on/easy off sneaker mule. This the perfect shoe for your early morning errands, yoga classes, and beach walks. You’ll definitely want to get a pair for days that you just want to kick back.
We’d love to see how much you love your Blowfish Malibu shoes! Tag us @blowfishmalibu and we just might feature your pictures on our page.
