If it’s not shoes with dogs and cats on them, you’re missing out!
Our Favorite Footwear for Pet Lovers
Last spring when shopping with my sisters and girlfriends, my friend and I made an awesome find – casual canvas sneakers with dogs and cats on them! The brand is Bobs by Skechers (this style: “Beach Bingo Woof Pack*“). We were at an outlet store, and they had a special BOGO offer, so we were each able to get a pair! We both got the colorful dog shoes in the below photo on the left.
*Disclosure: I am not being compensated for this post, I am sharing about these shoes because I love them so much. Direct links to some of the products on amazon, however, are affiliate links so I may receive a small commission if you order through those links.*
There was so much to love about these shoes – Skechers makes a donation to the Petco Foundation to help save lives of dogs and cats for each pair sold. It wasn’t just that, but the fact that the memory foam insoles make these shoes so darn comfortable. It’s like walking around in your slippers all day. I couldn’t get over still wanting another pair – the ones with the cats on them (above right).
Again, when shopping with “the girls” – Christmas shopping this time – my oldest sister and I ended up in a Skechers outlet store again, and didn’t they have the same offer going! This time, however, there was more to choose from than just the sneakers – there were slippers as well! I love the names – these are called “Too Cozy Winter-Wags*“. We didn’t manage to split the offer and walk out of the store with just one pair of shoes each, however, we both walked out with two! I found those canvas sneakers with the cats on them (“Beach Bingo Hissy Fit”), and these had the bonus of having faux fur along the top to make them oh-so-cozy for wear in the colder weather!
There is so much more. When I was at the Skechers outlet store, they talked me into signing up for their Elite Rewards program, which not only earns points, I also occasionally get special e-mail offers, and free shipping on their website. That led me to perusing the entire line of Bobs shoes, and I was amazed to see so many different pet patterns, and not just canvas shoes and slippers, but ballet flats, boots, sandals, slides and more. I’ve resisted so far, but I can see my shoe wardrobe expanding in the future!
These Skechers are not my first foray into footwear with pets on them. I have had the scuffs seen in the photo below on the left from LL Bean forever.
I’ve had them so long, the soles on the bottoms came off, but I’m still wearing them! I love these because not only can they be worn in the house, but if I need to step outside in the weather for a couple minutes, I don’t need to change my shoes; even with the center of the soles missing! The only downside of these for me is that LL Bean does not carry small sizes. These slippers are more comfortable for me if I wear them with a pair of socks on as well. They’ve had the dog ones, and cat ones, for a long time, but have expanded just lately and now have golden retrievers, butterflies, moose, and even squirrels! How would our dogs feel about us wearing squirrels on our feet? Luke might get a little crazy!
So whether out the door on the run or hanging around the house, my feet are cozy and expressive of my love for pets as well!
Tell us, do you have any pet-related footwear?
Tails Around the Ranch says
Totally love your Bob’s! They are one of the most comfy shoes around and adorably cute.
I got them because they were so cute, what a pleasant surprise it was how comfy they are too!
Those are SO cute. I love them!!!! I don’t have any pet related footwear – all of my footwear is “spine-related” (very very cushioned to keep my back happy). I wish that I could find dog-decorated spine-friendly footwear!
It must be difficult for you to find shoes, and I imagine you don’t have a lot of options. We’ll have to find you some dog-decorated biking gear! Unless you already have some of that? 🙂
I used your link and added a few of these to my Amazon wish list 🙂
Caren GITTLEMAN says
I am not sure now if I used your link because I changed the two pairs I had on my wish list (I am sorry if I screwed up!) I will eventually post them on the blog (I ordered cat slippers and cat sneakers (the dog ones I wanted aren’t available right now but they said they will email me when they are)……..they are supposed to arrive Thurs…will hopefully post them on the blog soon and will link to you and will use YOUR link to purchase if anyone who reads my blog wants them!
No worries on the link, Caren, it may have still gone through. I’m just excited for you that you’re getting some!!
You are so sweet!! xo
OMG I AM DYING OVER THESE!! I love the ones with the laces! Ohhh I love ALL of them! Thank you for sharing!
I’m so glad you’re excited about them, Caren! I’m not sure I expressed well enough just how much I LOVE them!

I LOVE all your shoes – What fun!! I see them in ads, etc., and would love a pair, but I never get them for myself. I think I should!!
You definitely deserve something fun for yourself – go for it!!
Bell Fur Zoo says
I don’t have any pet shoes from Bob’s but I do have their slip ons and I love them. Will have to check out our outlet to see if they have any of the pet ones cause I for sure need them in my life now 😉
Jenny @ Bell Fur Zoo
Oh, you definitely do, Jenny! Let me know if you get some!
I hope to get some of the slip-ons this summer too. I usually do a spring shopping trip with “the girls” and hopefully we’ll go to the outlet stores!

I have a pair of Golden Retriever sneakers that I bought several years ago, but I have wide feet so they’re a bit tight at times. And I have socks with Golden heads on them and Corgi heads too. I love the LLBean scuffs but I can’t wear scuffs. I adore those Skechers sneakers – I have to check them out. Do you have a website link?
I meant to include that in the post!
The Island Cats says
These are so cool! The mom has a pair of slippers with a split cat on them (similar to yours) that she wears all the time.
Love the Sketchers, they are so adorable!
I may not wear anything else all summer! 🙂
Those are all cute, especially the LL Bean scuffs. I bet they all bring a smile when you wear them.
Way cool and I get to see Luke too. That’s even better.
Have a fabulous day and weekend. My best to Mr. Luke. ♥
We couldn’t leave him out! 🙂
Ellen Pilch says
Those are all great. My niece got me some Bob’s black cat ones for Christmas. She wanted to get me Grumpy cat, but they were sold out.
Oh, I didn’t see Grumpy Cat on the website, but I see them now! In case you have a birthday coming up or anything. 🙂
Those are really cute! There isn’t any pet footware here outside of some socks with Simon on there.
Simon socks are definitely a good thing!! ♥
Susan from Bucks County Pennsylvania says
I have socks with Corgi’s on them.
M. K. Clinton says
Those are SOOOO cute! I need to pick some up the next time we go to Academy Sports. I do own a pair of hightop Basset Hound shoes. LOL!
Those definitely sound fun!!
love it!!!! wish I could find them here too… ;O)
They should be everywhere!!
JoAnn Stancer says
Such fun shoes and slippers. Great find!
I think I was looking for something completely different when I found these, good thing I had my eyes open! 🙂
We love your footwear with pets on them. They are so colorful! Mom does have a pair of Airedale sneakers and she loves them!
Those sound awesome too!!
