We’re not joking when we say these shoes weigh next to nothing – the lace-up Hope weighs 190g (6.7oz), which is just 2g more than an iPhone 7+!

How do we make them so light?

Our secret is using lightweight EVA plastic pellets, the material used to make flip-flops, to create the outsole.

“Beyond comfortable”

Hope Stretch Knit Sneaker

“A great sneaker is perfect for Spring, but a pink knit sneaker is even better! This sneaker from Cougar is so beyond comfortable that it almost feels like I’m floating.

Believe me when I say they’re too good to be true but, in fact, they are for real. While they do lace up, they’re super easy to slip on and are the ideal sneaker to take you from Spring right on into Summer.”

“Perfect for chasing my kids around”

Hula Stretch Knit Slip-on

“The most comfortable stretch knit slip-on sneakers are just what this “Momma Bear” needs.

They are super light-weight which makes them the perfect shoes for chasing my littles around. I also really love the color, they will definitely match with so much in my closet. I’ll be wearing these year round for sure!”

“Cute rain boots I can style with everything”

Rainy Day Slip-on Shoe

“If you, like me, just love a good easy slip on (especially one that’s simple and chic) then you’ll easily fall head over heels for this great spring weather-friendly shoe.

Trust me, no one in the office will be looking down at your feet wondering why you’ve got your wellies on at work when you’ve got these on. In fact, you’re far more likely to get asked where you got them once they find out they’re actually waterproof.”

“Light as a feather”

Hope Stretch Knit Sneaker

“Weird to say perhaps but gingham and sneakers is my new favorite combo. It feels like summer here in Colorado so I am loving breaking out my dresses!

I think pairing them with sneakers instead of flats or sandals gives them a more dare I say edgy look? I just received this pair from Cougar Shoes and I am so into them. They are light as a feather and are the perfect nudey brown that goes with everything!”
