From the vase...
Has anyone bought tennis shoes lately? There are pink, there are purple, there are orange! There are teal green. there are gray. A few black and a few white ...but not a single pair did I find that felt good enough to spend the money on. Not the black, white or gray that I really wanted, and none of the ones that make a fashion statement.
And have you ever noticed that the places that have the name brands for less than normal...none of those have arch support. I am convinced the companies make a run of shoes that are sub-standard.
Anyway, I left without any...not to mention I had wanted to find a new pair of slip on shoes that still had a bit of support. Didn't find any of those either.
We stopped to get a bite to eat and while there, I happened to think of Gander Mountain and their hiking shoes. Thankfully, I found a pair that seems to feel extra good on concrete. I could hardly stand to shop long enough to find these...being on concrete really bothers my back and feet.
These are the ones I got...I do like the looks of them and they look so good with jeans.. But I cannot tell you how many pair I tried on before I settled on these. Most of the others were definitely not an option because I have a problem with one foot. Do you have trouble finding shoes that fit and feel good? Every time I have to buy a pair of shoes, I dread it so bad cause I know it is going to be hard. I think this time was the hardest yet.
