Oh, the money I’ve spent on shoes that I’ve worn only a few times!
I’ve found that if the shoes aren’t comfortable when I first try them on in the store, they’re likely not going to be comfortable later on.
I guess it is for the best. After all, when there are only so many types and styles of shoes that work, it’s pretty hard to develop an Imelda Marcos-like obsession for shoes! :)
What I look for when I purchase my shoes:
- thick, cushioned sole
- no or very low heel
- supple leather or fabric
- supportive insoles
- wide toe box
