Loot!

Everyone seems to have expected me to buy a lot of shoes in NYC. I didn't. I only bought two pairs, and they are both decidedly sporty. Before my accident (which ironically enough happened whilst I was wearing a pair of trainers), I used to turn my nose up disdainfully at sporty shoes, and I still hate most of them (Nikes especially); but I've since come to more or less rely on them, as my ankle just can't cope with heels anymore. Not that that's stopped me buying heels, though. If I can't wear them, I can at least look at them and imagine myself in them.

And so I give you:

I'm curious to know what those Sketchers look like on. I can't realy wear heels because it just hurts too much (not my ankle, but my feet, really), but I've wondered about shoes like the Sketchers.

I have a pair of Diesels almost exactly the same - just a different colour. They offer NO ankle support, but they are comfy for walking and are decidedly not trainers.

For work, I do wear trainers with orthotics for arch support. They don't look good, but if you are on you feet for 8 hours at least you don't want to die at the end of it. :P

This is a stupid picture, but just to give you a rough idea, this is what those Skechers look like on my feet:






They're really comfy, like slippers, but I'm not sure how long they'll last. It's not that they're flimsy, but they can't be as durable as sturdy leather boots; and I'd hate to get caught in a downpour in them.

They (..) are decidedly not trainers

Exactly! I have another pair of Diesels, in fuchsia nad silver, and they're not trainers either. I never worry about ankle support, never have, never will; but the older and more injured I get, the more I care about soft, springy footbeds and ease of wear, and these types of shoes are great for that.

The Skechers are fascinating. I love the wedges as well - I am also stocking up on wedges whilst they are fashionable as I can walk in them so much more easily than in heels.

The Skechers I consider to be a really good buy: they're sporty and fun, but at the same time, they're dressy enough to go with skirts. And all for $60!

I like the sporty shoes more, but that's because heels make my feet terribly sad. I like those wedges, though. All three pairs are cute!

Thank you. In my experience, wedges take some getting used to at first, but on the whole they are easier to get around in than heels. They're certainly more comfortable, as they support the whole foot rather than just take the weight on the ball of the foot; and as they're usually made out of cork, they're also extremely lightweight. I think I'll continue to wear them, even after they've gone out of fashion in a year or so.

Ohh I like the sketchers they're kind of like pumps, not too sporty looking :) The other shoes are lovely too, I wouldn't be able to walk in the 3rd pair but they are very pretty.

Thanks! I'm not sure that I can walk in them either, but I'm going to give it a damn good try! ;-)
