I received products for review. The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way. Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services. Your opinions and results may differ.
Where I work requires me to sit eight or more hours a night in an office chair, staring at several computer screens. I'm a sloucher, and I definitely don't do my back any favors with the way I sit. I'd hate to see what the curvature of my spine looks like.
BackJoy, a leading manufacturer and retailer of posture-improving products, gave me the opportunity to try its flagship posture improvement SitSmart seat and its Zen Footwear. Although I may have already permanently messed up my back with the way I sit, I feel like making positive lifestyle changes and using proper products will help with decreasing compressed blood vessels and make me feel better in the long run.
The SitSmart seat by Backjoy is a simple contraption, but it works. It is a sitting device that naturally relieves back pain and optimizes your sitting posture. Its patented design works by tilting your hips upright and comfortably “floating” your spine over the seat. I've noticed improved posture and my back area doesn't ache near as much. The seat is comfortable and can be used on most any chair.
The Women's Oxford is available in three colors, and I received sand/orange. The shoes themselves have the sand color and the shoelaces are orange. I normally wear a women's size 10 shoe and that's what I ordered in the Zen shoe. Due to the material of the shoe, they were a little tight to get on and didn't give much stretch. I had to stretch them out for a few days, then was able to wear them. Once on, they are quite comfortable and don't make my feet hurt. They are hand-stitched with genuine leather, and the high quality is obvious.
