The Comfort Shoe Paradox


So I just think I went a bit too far in the grandma shoe department.  I love Worishofers beyond belief for their comfort and am needing a good pair of shoes to wear for my upcoming trip to NYC.  It's going to be below 70 degrees and all my walkable shoes are either sandals (cold toes), flats (need more arch support) or too high (a true Texan stereotype--we drive everywhere).  Enter these babies: they're half sandal, half clog which should keep my feet relatively warm, and have the best arch support for trekking all over the city for vintage treasures, lobster rolls, bagels and more shopping.  I'm torn between feeling practical about my shoe choice to the horror of wearing orthopedic shoes in the most fashionable city in the country.  I might be brave and sneak a picture for you guys while I'm there.  Or maybe it's best not to have any photographic evidence...

  2. Sharon, I love them. I've had them on my "to buy" list for a while. Does this mean we are both doomed?

  8. OK, I'm not allowed to buy anything until we move (in a few weeks) but after that...getting these! I was tempted by the bone color but I think navy is a great idea!

  9. yeah I was afraid of the light beige being too granny but it ended up looking like nude shoes so... I bought them on Amazon on sale! You're moving?? w/in LA?
