About Shoes


(By Liza)

My grandmother once said that you can tell how well a persons shoes fit by the state of their face. I think this is very true. There is nothing worse than having to cope with shoes that are causing pain, it can ruin your day or night!

I’ve never been able to wear those stilt like heels but I’m actually finding that the more ‘sensible’ options are becoming a necessity. Comfort is definitely playing more of a role in my choice! I honestly think my feet have got middle age spread like the rest of me unfortunately! Although my daughter says I have always had fat feet, but I try not to dwell on that!

Most people I know love a new pair of shoes, and it’s a great comfort if you’re out on a shopping spree and having body image issues in the changing rooms. Go to a shoe shop and try on some shoes, it can make the day a whole lot better, after all one has to go home with something!

I think the shoe designers are finally catching on to the idea that 20 inch stilettos are not to everyone’s taste and are designing lower, more comfortable ones that are still stylish and individual.

I discovered Fit flops a few years ago while trawling through websites and now friends and family swear by them just like I do. But I would like to see a wider variety of designs from them as well as all the old favourites.

Another great company is Wolky, a company originating in the Netherlands. The shoes are SO comfortable, the kind that you can put on new and wear them all day with no pain! I don’t know why I’m advertising these businesses there is nothing in it for me, but I’m trying to be useful!

I would love to hear from anyone who can recommend some other shoe companies for those of us who don’t want to walk around with a face full of agony but still like to show a little individuality on our feet!
