I have been waiting (a few weeks) for these to go on sale. Today was the (double coupon) day!

I love Euro Soft shoes. These are so comfortable.

spring1, I saw Orthaheel sandals on QVC this morn and thought of you and your sore feet. They look super comfortable (and are cute too).

I saw a women at my kids school wearing a cute pair of Dansko clogs that looked very comfortable.

I just looked them up and they're $120. Mother fluffler. So much for that idea.

Springy~

Ninja turned me on to Alegria shoes. My feet demand comfy shoes with a great arch support. I wear my Alegria sandals all day...no problem! They have a footbed (maybe cork?) that molds to your feet and you can replace them they don't have that between-the-toe thingy. I don't have these exact ones, but I thought you'd like them!

I wish they had worked for me, but they're definitely not for me. I almost get a foot cramp thinking about wearing them. That high arch digging into my foot liked tah kilt me.

Kasden, we have a store that sells those so next time I'm near I'll have to try them out. Thank you!

^ Oh dang, I thought you HAD a high arch. But you must be a flat foot like my sister.

I have a little bit of an arch, but I guess not high enough to wear anything with a lot of arch support in it. I tried a pair of flip-flops CurliLocks suggested (quite a while back) that had a pretty high arch in it and had to send those back too. Thank goodness for Zappos free shipping and returns. I also can't wear Dansko or Birkenstock, which so many folks rave about.

I wore the sparkly Aerosoles over the weekend and so far so good with those!

My feet are flat, but they do better with support like in an Alegria. It helps keep the over pronation in check.

Check to see if you can find any sales. I know you can't normally bring yourself to spend that much on a clothing/shoe item, but when it comes to shoes, it is worth it. Keep in mind this is coming from a person who has had 2 foot surgeries, and has to be selective. I can get away with more 'comfortable heels, if I can sit from time to time while wearing them. Otherwise it's wedge or something flat, and the more cushion & quality the better.

I have spent $160 on a pair of shoes, and still have them 15 years later. I can't spend that on a purse, but heck yeah I will treat my feet! They are almost in perfect condition, and I have no smelly feet issues , so it really does pay in the long run. I can have them re soled or repaired if/as needed.

Yes, but they will last several seasons. I have a couple pair of Dansko and Sanita sandals that I've been wearing most of the summer for a couple summers now and they're still going strong.

^ It cracks me up that shoes have names. I looked in the shoe and it says Texpertise so I guess that's it's name. If it was on sale at Ross it's probably a style from a couple years ago.
