3 Looks: Jambu Shoes That Go With Everything & Special Offer
One goal of a sustainable closet is to find shoes that go with everything. Since Charlotte, Lesley, and I all chose the exact same shoe as one of our gifted Jambu selections from their fall lineup, I thought it would be helpful to show you 3 looks to go with them.
This is a sponsored post with Jambu Footwear. Details about what that means are at the end of the post.
Quote of the day: “To be good and lead a good life means to give to others more than one takes from them.” Leo Tolstoy
I think the advantage of learning about new products from a blogger you follow regularly is that you can get the inside scoop. Plus you are exposed to many more companies that you might not find on your own. That’s why this quote spoke to me. As a well-established blogger, I enjoy the opportunity to not only style these shoes that go with everything, but also give you a discount to make them more budget-oriented.
If you are interested in our reviews and sizing, you can jump to that section now.
Insider tip: My code for the Fall 2021 period is JTOUCHF21 which you can use on any of the shoes on Jambu’s website until Dec 5, 2021.
If you are new to Jambu, then let me give you some background about the company. The Jambu line is all about comfort and style. Each shoe has memory foam insoles and has many options available in wide widths.
Many of their shoes have received the APMA Seal of Acceptance for promoting good foot health through supportive and durable constructions.
Jambu shoes are only available in the US right now; however, these styling tips in the post would work for any shoes similar to these.
As for their return policy, I love what they say: “We think life should be an adventure, but returning your shoes shouldn’t be! We’ve made it easy.” You can return shoes within 30 days of purchasing.
Another fabulous aspect about Jambu is their reward program because once you get a pair, you will want more. It’s easy to join, and you get 100 points just for signing up. After that, you can earn more rewards with every purchase AND on your birthday.
The rewards are easy to use also. You can get free shipping just with 100 points (which you’ll have after you sign up for the program), and then the more points you accumulate, the bigger discounts you save.
Insider tip: They also have a repurposing program available. Shoes can be donated back to Jambu where they will either donate them to their partner, Project Sole or broken down to be repurposed into new products. The best part is then you’ll get a $10 credit for your next purchase.
More About the Torino Mocassin–The Shoes That Go With Everything
Now let’s get down to business about these shoes that go with everything. These are called the Torinos and are classified as a mocassin style.
An everyday shoe would be one that you could wear around the house and out and about. And that’s exactly what these are. They are flats and easy to slip on. In fact, you might just start calling them your slippers. If so, remember they are slippers with benefits. The benefits are that they have a rubber sole that can be worn outside.
Another fabulous benefit is the faux fur lining that is on the inside for warmth.
This Torino style is also one of Jambu’s vegan selections. Which means no animals were used to make these mocassins.
These mocassins also come in a variety of colors
- Gunmetal (which is a light grey)
- Olive Green
- And this taupe version we are all showcasing. FYI taupe is considered a mix of brown and grey. It’s one of those neutrals that could look different depending on what other colors you pair with it and the lighting.
Different Options for Styling the Shoes that go with Everything
One of the reasons, I would consider these Torinos to be shoes that go with everything, is because of how you could wear them with so many different colors and styles.
Even though they are classified as a mocassin, you could almost call them a loafer or flat sneaker. Because of this, they could easily pair with pants, jeans, skirts, and dresses.
The three of us decided to give you three looks with different colors for this taupe pair of Jambu Torinos.
Charlotte’s Look with a Matching Neutral
Pants: Chicos-thrifted ~~ Top: My Mom made it~~ Shoes: Torino by Jambu c/o~~Scarf: Made with leftover material~~ Earrings: Coconut shells from the Caribbean~~ Purse: no label
My mother paired her taupe mocassins with a pair of tan pants. She kept the entire outfit neutral with a brown striped tunic that she sewed.
Insider tip: Here’s a great example of a time when the half and half proportion works better than most. Because the top and pants don’t have a lot of contrast, the proportions are not as obvious. If you wanted to change the proportions, remember all of my no-sew ways to transform a top like this.
Another great detail about Charlotte’s look is how she is mixing a silky top with a pair of knit pants. Many women get caught up with trying to match materials, but it’s much more contemporary to mix them up.
Notice the matching scarf on the purse. My mom always tries to use any leftover material after a project, and with this one, she made a scarf for me. I let her borrow it for this photoshoot, but you can see me wearing it here when we went to Seattle.
Insider tip: Don’t forget to “wear” your scarves on your purse. It’s such an easy way to add interest to your outfit and you don’t have to get all creative on how to tie the scarf.
Lesley’s Look with Jeans
Jeans: Style & Co~~ Sweater: Chicos~~ Top: Chicos~~ Shoes: Torino by Jambu c/o ~~ Scarf: ~~ Necklace: ~~ Bracelet: ~~ Earrings: ~~ Purse: Maruca
Lesley styled jeans with her shoes that go with everything. Jeans are ubiquitous for a casual day, so pairing them with this kind of shoe seems perfect.
I love how Lesley cuffed her jeans this way to show off the shoe. If you are petite like the three of us, then cuffing your jeans is a wonderful way to have them be the length you need depending on the shoe choice.
Insider tip: Another trick if your proportions are more half and half with an outfit is to add a long, vertical element. Lesley did this with her scarf. Instead of trying to tie it around her neck, she left it hanging down the front.
Not only does the scarf add a vertical element to the outfit, but it also adds in some bright colors and ties in the turquoise collar of the blouse under the sweater.
Jodie’s Look with Print Pants
Pants: Banana Republic~~ Jacket: Naomi & Ruth online boutique~~ Top: ~~ Shoes: Torino by Jambu c/o ~~ Necklace: Maison de Camille c/o~~ Earrings: Lil’ Shop of Ours~~ Purse: Patrica Nash, won in a giveaway
Since Lesley and Charlotte styled these shoes that go with everything with the basics, I decided to try something a bit more wild. Not only did I wear a pair of print pants, but these are also wide-leg pants.
I’ve worn these leopard pants on the blog with 5 different color combinations. When I first bought them, they intimidated me because I had never worn anything like them before. Yet after challenging myself to wear them over and over, I just love them and think they are fabulous.
These Torino mocassins are a great neutral that doesn’t compete with the wild print of the pants.
For the top half, I added in a bright pink tank and included a cropped, corduroy jacket.
Insider tip: Remember you can change the focus of your outfit with hats. If you are wearing a newer style of pants or jeans that you aren’t sure about, grab a hat, so people will notice that instead. BTW, this hat was thrifted for Rob, but I find it works just as well for me.

Sizing and Reviews of the Torinos
The three of us ordered our normal size with these mocassins. They tend to run a tad big if you want a tight-fitting shoe. They are sized to be able to slip in and out of very easily. If you are going to be wearing these around the house, I would stick with your normal size.
If you are going to be wearing them out more, then you might want to size down a half size.
Charlotte: My mom said her pair were very comfortable and warm for the colder weather.
Jodie: Since my feet are always cold in the winter, I appreciate the faux fur lining of these mocassins. I did still wear my Sheec ultra low cut socks with them when we went out and about. These remind me of most of my ballet flats in there is no extra arch support. However, I can easily add my Sole Insoles to them if I’m walking far in them.
Lesley: “I ordered the usual size I get in jambu shoes but found this style to be bigger than usual. The fleece lining was so comfortable and cozy, but my foot slipped around. Since it was lined I wasn’t able to add a heel grip to keep my foot from slipping up. Jambu shoes usually have nice arch support which is great for my high arch, but this style was flatter. I was able to add an insole that helped with the sizing.”
