I love my Alegrias ... They are pricey but the support is outstanding, the toe box is wide enough for my bunioned big toes and they don't wear out.

I never enjoyed shoe shopping. I wear size 11M and it is hard to find comfortable shoes for my long toes! I went barefoot around the house for about 15 yrs. and I am paying for it now. I have bad arches and arthritis in both feet and I feel it every day. For the past two years I have been wearing very comfortable, good arch support sandals around the house. I am never barefoot now. Unfortunately, I wear SAS brand shoes. They are very comfortable but not stylish but at this stage of my life I don't care! Comfort is first with me now.

The only time I'm shoeless is when I'm showering at home. Shoes are preferred to be worn in my home, I don't want to see your ugly feet or stinky socks. LOL. Being barefoot can cause lots of problems as you age.

I find that shoes do not come in half sizes in most brands anymore. I am a definite 7 and a 1/2 size. 7 is too small and 8 is too big.

I am hanging onto the shoes that I have and hope that they do not wear out too quickly. I maybe forced to go barefoot.

My last pair of shoes I bought recently were Born. I love them. Clarks too. I have trouble with shoes now as my feet are wider than they used to be. And I can't wear heels anymore.

I wear SAS shoes. they may not be the prettiest shoes around but except for my Brooks Ariel's, they are the only shoe I can wear comfortably with my orthotics in them. THey are kinda expensive, though. About $120 - $140 a pair.
My Brooks are super cushioned running shoes that are also stabilizers, Unfortunately they run about $140 a pair also. I go cheaper on my clothes, but must wear good shoes if I want to be able to stand or walk. And I am only 53!!!

My newest Grandson, Caleb Austin, was born May 29th. I am now Grandma to 4 precious babies. I am so blessed!!!!

My feet are long and more narrow than they used to be. I get a good fit with Naturalizer but not Clark's. I mostly wear open toe sandals and most of them want to fall off my feet, very frustrating!

I have to wear orthotics now so I have a HUGE problem finding shoes....the last few years I have stayed with Ecco 3 strap sandals...I get several colors and that is my shoe for all occasions. This year they changed the height of the heel and I had to adjust to that...but now I like it better. It is good I live in a warm climate or I could be in deep trouble in the snow! LOL

You're tight - Naturalizer & Hushpuppies have changed size-wise. I've bought Skechers Go Walks for summer and love them.
