Need a little help from my friends
I have bad feet. BIG bad feet. I've gone barefoot my whole life, only putting on shoes when I have to wear them. I had my toenails permanently removed to get rid of fungus. Yes friends, my feet are hideous.
I went to visit Flylady this morning and was reminded that she wants me to put on shoes as soon as I get out of bed. Her theory seems to be that if you dress for work, you're more likely to actually work, and there is some truth to that.
Here's the problem. I can't seem to find any shoes that are comfortable. Years ago when we first began walking for exercise, Cliff and I discovered Nike Oceanas; they were so comfy, they could have been house shoes.
Once Nike stopped making Oceanas, they haven't come up with another shoe that suits us.
I don't mind paying a decent price for shoes, but I'd like them to feel good.
If you, my readers, have any suggestions as to a comfortable shoe, I'd like to hear it. After all, my readers steered me right on toilet paper; let's hear what kind of shoes you favor. Keep in mind that I need a size that is larger than 10, so if their size range only goes to 10, those shoes are not an option.
