Shoes needed: Must be fashionable AND comfortable

I have always had a shoe fetish. I got it honestly; I inherited it from my mom. Most of the women I know have a love-affair with shoes. When I was in my twenties and thirties, I love wearing high heels. Just putting on a pair automatically made me feel sexy. I would immediately turn into my alter ego, “Lola”. In those days, it was nothing for me to dance effortlessly or strut around for hours in a pair of heels. But now…I’m over forty. Now, I look for shoes that are more comfortable than fashionable. But fashion is still important too.

Now those designer label, high-heel shoes sit in my closed unworn; safely tucked away in their boxes. Most days, you can see me sporting flats. But not all flat shoes are comfortable nor are they all good for your feet. In my search for a comfortable, every day shoe, I remembered: Wallabees! In my research, I found that Wallabees are comfortable, surprisingly fashionable and pretty expensive! Then I found a place where I could purchase clark wallabees cheap. I laughed when I recalled my high school days at Cardinal Dougherty where, because we had to wear uniforms, the only fashion statement we could make was with our shoes and hair. We would laugh at the girls who wore cheap clark wallabes, calling them corny. Lol. I realize that those girls weren’t corny at all; they were smart!

I also found that they have comfortable boots as well. Those pointy toe, high heel boots that I once strutted around in no longer fit my lifestyle. Clarks women’s boots square toe look pretty good to me now! They’re fashionable enough, but more important to me at this stage in my life is comfort.
So, I’m going to try them out. I’m sure my feet will love them!
