I have worked with OTBT not once, but twice before in the past year or two. The first time was for their Homecoming game campaign, and the second was for the release of their new handbag line! Both were amazing experiences, as they have not only incredible products, but wonderful customer service as well. With this in mind, it goes without saying that I was OVERJOYED when OTBT asked to work together a third time this summer.
The shoe brand has released many fun, new summer styles and I couldn’t WAIT to get my hands on a pair! I was asked to choose my favorite and the second I saw the Normcore sneakers on their site, I knew it was true love. They were stylish, yet classic. Similar to lots of popular sneakers, but definitely still unique. I like when I can be on trend, but still stand out, and I knew these shoes would help me do just that.
Luckily, as many of you know, I spent part of my summer interning in Los Angeles, so I was super excited to have the opportunity to rock the sneaks in LA! I knew they would be great for all the running around & exploring I would be doing and I was right!
OTBT describes their Normcore court sneaker as a modern-classic with long-lasting comfort. This is something I can attest to, as can many others. OTBT shoes are somewhat known for being unbelievably comfortable. They’re a game-day staple item at Alabama, because the wedges are cute AND comfy, and we stand for hours and hours during games. As much as I love fancier shoes, I was excited to try a more casual look from OTBT, a pair of shoes I knew I would be wearing a LOT. If they were as comfy as my other pair, I knew I needed them.
These shoes live up to their description, let me tell you. I’ve been wearing them NONSTOP since I received them. I wore them all around LA, to the Warner Brother’s Tour, to lunch, to Universal Studios, heck, even to work one day, haha! And as a true testament, I wore them on my travel day home through many hours of airports and standing and sitting. The shoes are AMAZING. I’ve always described OTBT shoes as “you feel like you’re walking on a cloud” and this still rings true for my newest pair.
The Normcore can be worn with or without laces, as it has an elastic band for versatile use. I’m obsessed with my pair, y’all. Seriously. They fit perfectly and I feel comfortable for hours, days, etc. Hehe. I will say, I planned on asking for 6.5 because I am a 6 in their wedges, however, my point of contact at the company helped me out and told me the shoe runs a little big. So, I stuck with a 6 and they fit perfectly, truly. When they first arrived, I thought they looked huge, but the second I put them on, I knew I was wrong. The shoes fit pretty snugly, as they can be worn without laces. They also come in black, taupe, and grey silver!
As you can see, I am seriously in love with these shoes. OTBT says, “These women’s casual sneakers are made for walking, or just treading around town on trend. Normcore in white is the ultimate sporty style for the modern, minimalistic woman.” This is a great description, and if you would like to get your hands on a pair, you’re in luck!

Not only do I love their shoes, but I love the OTBT brand itself! As I’ve mentioned they have great customer service, AND they offer free shipping & free returns. I have had such an amazing experience working with them, and I love what they stand for. I see people out and about wearing OTBT shoes and we chat about how incredibly comfortable they are. I also love to bring up their mission statement, which is:
“To all you Wanderers who know you can’t see the world from the seat of a bus, berth of the train, the railings of a boat or the porthole of a plane; to all you roamers, rovers and rolling stones who know getting there is half the fun, ramble on.”
Here’s to wandering Off The Beaten Track!♡
OTBT gifted me with a free pair of Normcore sneakers, but as always, all opinions are 100% my own.
