Bzees’s shoes have a very unique look. They’re easy to spot in a crowd. Their distinct outsole makes them really interesting and appealing. But the comfort that they offer is even more appealing than the stylish nature of the design.

Owned by Caleres, BZees is just one of the many retail companies under the wings of the famous footwear company. And what makes them so unique and easy to spot? Well, the design of the shoe plays a huge role in the recognition and identification of BZees merchandise. But one can’t forget about the very special technologies, the interesting choice of fabric and the additions to the manufacturing process that complete the look.

Oh, and what’s the best thing about the BZees shoes? Well, the fact that you can wash them in your regular washing machine. That’s right. While other types of shoes require special care, and cleaning supplies, the BZees shoes are low maintenance. All you have to do is pop them in the washing machine and they’ll be fantastic again. As good as new again. No damage, no ripping and no falling apart. The shoes will stay intact even after the wash cycle. Neat right?

But for now, let’s focus on the BZees Electric pump. What are the pros and cons of this particular model? Find out in the review below.

Cons

Outsole

Outsole

There’s plenty to be said about every single area of the shoe, so pay attention. Let’s start with the fantastic outsole. The first amazing thing about the outsole is that it’s an EVA outsole. Secondly, it’s molded and with lower density than the usual rubber outsoles. And thirdly it’s air-infused. The tiny bubbles, which are the result of the air-infusion, provide the outsole with a bouncy and very lightweight feeling. The low-density of the outsole pair well with the air infusion, since it helps the outsole to maintain that lightweight bouncy feeling. And it’s precisely that feeling that’s responsible for the overall comfort.

From what the customer comment section said about the walking with the outsole is the very honest comparison to walking on a pillowy soft cloud. The air bubbles that come with the air-infusion are making tinny pockets of air, while the low density of the outsole helps them to maintain the shape and the consistency. And let’s not forget about the second amazing feature in the outsole. The presence of the unique Comfort Cone style of gel. The official Bzees page says that the gel gives the shoes their ahhhh factor, and for good reason. The gel is located in the heel area, and its main purpose is to absorb the shock from the heel. By having the shock absorption feature down to a T, the gel also deals with the cushioning in the heel, and with adding an extra layer of comfort and stability.

Oh and speaking of that heel, it's 2 and a half inches high, chunky and amazing. There’s plenty of room in the heel structure for the gel to do its thing and to allow protection all around the shoe.
Midsole

Midsole

Just like with the outsole, the midsole has a lot going on, so your undivided attention is required once again. The arch area of the midsole is re-enforced with special memory foam. What that memory foam does is replicates the anatomical contours of the arches, and molds the foam so that it supports the arch nicely and without any interruptions. Roughly in that area sits the footbed made with the lauded Cloud Technology. And the name of the technology speaks for itself. It gives you a cloud-like feeling of weightlessness, and much as the name suggests, it makes you feel like you’re walking on cloud number 9.

The footbed is also located in the midsole as well. Two amazing things need to be mentioned bout the footbed in the Electric model. First, it’s removable. Yes, that’s right. The footbed in this particular model is optional and you can easily replace with some other footbed of your choosing, or omit it altogether. It’s all up to you. But let us first explain what type of footbed you’ll be getting with this particular model. It’s a Free Foam type of footbed, and according to the company’s explanation, it’s the best way to rest your feet. It’s the shoe equivalent of an actual bed, and since your entire body needs a bed to rest and recharge why not used a footbed that can do the same to your feet?

Oh and the last amazing thing in the midsole area is the OdoBan technology. No, this particular technology isn’t directed and focused on the comfort or the balance of the shoes. No, this specific technology is intended to provide you with odor free shoes, and it does a fine job at that. The odor control is done with the help of the midsole, where this particular technology is applied and you can say goodbye to the smelly stinky feet. They’ll be a thing of the past.
Upper

Upper

Say hello to the fantastic upper. Yes, the outsole and midsole required a lot of explanation and presentation, but don’t think for a second that the upper isn’t as complex and wonderful. It is, and it deserves your attention too. The Electric model has an easy slip-on style of a silhouette. It’s practical and dynamic, and so is the stretchy fabric used in the upper.

The stretched fabric allows plenty of movement, flexibility in the upper, and the SILVADUR lining underneath the upper eliminates any hazardous bacteria that could be found in the shoe. So, the Electric model will not only leave your feet odor-free it will also make them bacteria-free. If you take a good look at the ankle, you’ll notice that ankle area of the shoe is padded as well, with the SuperPuff padding, while the toe area sports a nice round toe type of silhouette. It’s well equipped to make room for all of your toes without the fear of potential cramming, blistering and causing pain.

And last but certainly but not least, there’s a decorative strap on the shoe’s vamp. It’s a mix of elastic stretchy thread and intricate plastic detailing. It’s the sporting equivalent of an elegant bow. It doesn’t have to be there, but the upper looks better with the strap on than without it.
Comfort

Comfort

When you have so many different technologies, so many helpful additions that basically guarantee that you’ll be walking on a cloud number 9 while wearing the shoes, you can’t help but feel satisfied with the comfort of the Electric shoe. What helps the most in the providing of comfort? It’s hard to say for sure, but there’s no way we couldn’t mention the Cloud technology, the EVA outsole and Comfort gel that’s inserted in the heel of the outsole.

All of them allow the comfort to be present all the time, but the small stuff really ads volumes to the comfort as well. Small stuff like the round toe style of silhouette and the fabric used in the upper. When your feet have plenty of room to move and not to feel restricted, you’d better believe that they’ll be comfortable in this shoe. As will the entire foot.
Support

Support

However there’s a strong culprit for the amount of support in the shoe, and that’s the fantastic midsole. The FreeFoam footbed is specifically designed to mold to the anatomy of your foot and to provide the support in the area where’s needed the most. The midsole. But in this particular model, the support comes from the outsole as well. The comfort gel in the heel of the outsole, along with the entire EVA outsole allows you to feel lightweight, bouncy and to have plenty of energy. The outsole is like the bed for your feet. It helps you rest them nicely, and to get plenty of energy for the upcoming day.
Flexibility

Flexibility

Don’t get fooled by the thick rubber outsole and all the features in the midsole. Yes, they make a small setback in the flexibility department, but luckily this particular model has a textile upper that well makes up for the loss of flexibility in the other two areas. The flexibility is abundant in the stretchy, flexible and dynamic upper made out of fabric.
Stability

Stability

There’s no better way to experience the stability of the Electric model than with walking on the fantastic molded EVA outsole re-enforced with the comfort gel in the heel. The fact that the EVA outsole is with low density and air-infused with small bubbles really accounts for much of the stability. By providing you with stability all around the foot and lightweight feeling you can rest assured that the stability is present all around the shoe.
Airflow

Airflow

The use of the textile material in the upper’s construction wasn’t all for nothing. Yes, the textile isn’t the sturdiest, firmest material for making shoes. But one positive thing that can be said about the fabric upper is the fact that besides plenty of flexibility, it allows the shoes to have aeration from every inch of that upper.
Fit

Fit

With the slip-on style of silhouette and the use of fabric in the upper, the best way to describe the fit is –like a glove. The round toe style of silhouette featured at the front of the shoe, allows you to feel much more comfortable, and to experience a better fit to your feet. The toes have plenty of room to move, and the fact that they’re covered with fabric, allows the flexibility to kick in. All of those things work in favor of the fit of course.
Price

Price

Great thing about the Electric pumps by BZees is how cheap they are. With a price tag of just 60 dollars, the Electric model is not only affordable, but it’s also available on several of the similar retailers as well. They’re a great purchase, for your shoe closet, because not only will become a great stable asset, you’ll get your money’s worth pretty much instantly.
Style

Style

What’s most impressive about the Electric pumps is how versatile they are. They’re a great everyday shoe and a great option when you don’t feel like dressing up. The thick outsole and the textile upper create a more casual effortless look, while the three inches high stiletto heel adds a dash of elegance. The style fluctuates between sporty and elegant, and it’s up to you to choose the occasions that work best with the shoes. Occasions that are more relaxed, and don’t require the need for formal attire. The Electric model will work just fine for a stroll in the park, just as good as it will protect your feet from your late night shift. The main purpose of the shoes is to look after your feet, and it doesn’t hurt that they look great as well.
Bottom line

Bottom line

With so many features, materials, technologies used in the completion of the Electric pumps, it’s no wonder that they’re BZees’s pride and joy. Comfortable as much as they’re easy going and relaxed, the shoe’s real strength can be felt during the long working hours, or the long period of time that will require standing on your feet. They’ll do their best to provide comfort, stability, flexibility, and endurance, and the athleisure look is just a bonus. The pumps are affordable, stylish and in demand, but very comfortable in the core. They’re a great purchase.
