vibram five fingers australia Bad feet love beauty too A recent visit to the podiatrist confirmed it: my feet suck. No arches at all, bunions, plantar fasciitis, the whole works. I have been strictly instructed to wear sturdy flats (with good arch support) or one inch pumps nothing higher if I would like to still be walking at age sixty. But when I go to the shoe store, all I find in the required styles are boring black and brown, with the occasional daring foray into beige. It makes me sad. Is there anyone out there in MeFi land who has found an awesome shoe brand that makes colorful shoes for people with pathetic feet? Or am I doomed to have boring shoes forever? posted by backwards compatible to clothing, beauty, fashion (30 answers total) 62 users marked this as a favoriteI have these and I love them! People compliment them all the time. Danskos are handmade and you should try on three of the same style and size before choosing. Also, there should be room behind your ankle. posted by dchrssyr at 4:12 PM on October 4, 2011 [2 favorites] My wife would recommend you look at Fleuvogs. She refuses to wear uncomfortable shoes and has had problems with plantar fasciitis (but memail me about that). She's got several pair, and routinely gets compliments on them. Colorful and funky and well made. posted by adamrice at 4:16 PM on October 4, 2011 [1 favorite] I have bad feet and I love Cydwoqs, but they are not cheap. I also buy Superfeet and slip them into shoes that have a removable insert. Miles better than Dr. Scholls, and come in lots of different styles/fits. A warning about Danskos: the styles that have no heel will make your foot work to keep the shoe on. I've had two specialists tell me that is bad for already taxed feet. posted by Specklet at 4:18 PM on October 4, 2011 [1 favorite] What do you usually wear for work? Dresses? Suits? Pant suits? I walk a lot on pavement every day and after many years of stilettos and pavement, my feet now protest anything that is uncomfortable. I have a pair of Marc Jacobs flats that have a little bit of heel that go great with anything. They are slightly more expensive than what I like to spend, but they are black patent and it is from his line of Marc by Marc Jacobs. They are super comfortable. Geox make unbelievably comfortable shoes and some of them are even attractive! I like Clarks too. I have had Clarks from when I was a little kid and they are great shoes. Also, try Born. They are not necessarily pretty, but fantastic shoes. Occasionally I find beautiful heels that are very comfortable, but I am not sure you want to test your feet on them since your doctor said no more than an inch heel. Maybe the booties that are coming out will be to your liking too! I am not fond of comfortable shoes since they are usually not pretty so I know what you are up against. Good luck with shoe shopping!! posted by Yellow at 4:23 PM on October 4, 2011 Clarks! (They carry them at Zappos, so free shipping.) posted by BlahLaLa at 4:27 PM on October 4, 2011 I feel your pain (literally)! A friend of a friend runs this blog she reviews comfortable shoes and some are pretty cute. Also, I was about to buy Dansko clogs and then read that they are no longer made by the company that used to make them (Sanita) so I just bought a pair of Sanita clogs (look just like the Dansko's but according to the comments they are better made). I have a lot of the same foot problems that you have and these clogs feel wonderful! posted by la petite marie at 4:29 PM on October 4, 2011 [1 favorite] Alegrias! I work in a bookstore and I'm on my feet for 8 hours a day. Alegrias are the ONLY shoes that don't hurt at the end of the day. I love them so much that I actually own two pairs in different patterns. Plus, they're really cute and different and come in about a zillion colors and patterns. They are honestly the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned, way better than Danskos. I've had trouble with plantar fasciitis and I am supposed to wear arch supports every day but with the Alegrias I don't even need inserts. posted by mygothlaundry at 4:33 PM on October 4, 2011 [1 favorite] I second Fluevogs, Cydwoq, and Danskos (with the caveat that the quality of Danskos has faltered in the last few years since they started being made in China). I would add to the mix Pikolinos and Arche.
