Vanity, vanity ,vanity.......
I love heels and sandles. If you switch them around you'll be ok. Wear a pair that rubs the opposite way of the pair you wore yesterday. I can't imagine getting too old to love heels.
Best Antidote to Dr. Scholls Monstrosities = Merrill sandals.
I've had reconstructive foot surgery four times and have fallen in love with Merrill shoes. They keep me walking!
Flexiblefootwear.com. Most comfortable shoes on the planet.
They aren't cheap, but I have three pairs (one for the office, one for in the house, and one for going outside) and recommend them to anyone. I'm a vet and am on my feet all day. Before these shoes my feet ached very badly at the end of the day, especially after standing in one place for hours doing surgery. Now I have no discomfort, and actually don't want to take the Flexible Footwear shoes off, ever. I made my Mom buy a pair after hearing her complain about some major foot problems and she was quite happy with them and just bought a second pair. (And you can sit on them without discomfort!) Why anyone would wear a pair of shoes that hurt just because they're "cute" is insane.
Thanks for the link. ;-)
He just doesn't understand yet what a treasure he has in you.
Oh ok, that's good! :) I was a little worried there. :)
Hmm, when I go there, I see nothing....?? I actually don't mind cutesie shoes. Just don't ask me to wear them on a regular basis. And don't ask me to wear them in Seattle at all - the hills here are nasty.
Aww, you're sweet. Really we both kinda want to make some money for a while. Someday though!
When I visited my daughter in Ohio this past winter, I was shocked to see the college kids wearing flop flops!
Here I was, from sunny San Diego, California freezing in my jacket and scarf, the kids were oblivious to the cold.
They climatized! My husband wears shorts year round and my folks from the inland valley think he's absolutely nuts! lol... Sunny California hasn't been all that sunny lately.
Or I get told to order them off the internet...only problem with that is you can't try before you buy and that means you can't judge their fit, comfort or looks, and sizes are not consistant.
I got them for my kids too now.
It's a unisex issue: "You can't be happy when your feet are sad."
LOL! Sounds like the footwear corollary to "Nothing goes right when your underwear's tight."
Amen. I love mine. I fell in love back when I was a tree-huggin' college student. I couldn't find a pair of hiking boots that wouldn't put blisters on top of blisters. I still have scars from that abuse. It got to the point were I'd just hike in my birks they were so comfy.
I really like the current trend toward mules and slides. I love not having 'shoe' rub on my heels. My current favorite pairs is a casual Friday shoe: Luchesse's "Charlie One Horse" Slides. They're just yummy.
Those are VEY cute, but I can't do that pointy toe thang! I gots to have a wide box for my toeses.
Oh, I see it now. :) Thanks. Yeah their website doesn't have much on there. I assume you have to write or call them to get a catalog?
Ok, cool, thanks! :)
