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.

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.
