Since about age 50, I have had to retire all my true high heels. Those fab classic black patent pumps, and high-heeled booties, all gone to the thrift shops. I think they always did hurt. But when I was 29 years old, I didn’t care. We had to wear heels! It was a fashion law. And a lot of women in my age group still do enjoy heels, and I think that’s fantastic. Wear what you love, every day.
But for me now, at age 60, I decline to wear high heels and at the same time I eschew “frumpy”, old-lady (even though I am one) comfortable shoes. You won’t find me in puffy white sneakers, except when I’m hopping around for fitness. I like to think I will have fun feet till my last day.
Love of comfort doesn’t have to limit one to just flats, sneakers or authentic orthopedic shoes. I still love a wedge, a small block heel, a platform, and even though they appear to be hopelessly passe, a kitten heel for dress-up. I adore color and/or pattern, or even a little whimsy.
Luckily for me, there are more good-looking comfortable Spring/Summer shoes now than I can ever remember. New brands are popping up all the time, and old familiar brands are adding new styles. I truly don’t see any reason for my feet to cause me pain on a daily basis, hooray for technology.
Here’s a round-up of some of my favorite ultra-comfortable footwear for Spring/Summer. I haven’t owned each of these shoes yet, but I have had a pair from each brand shown. We’ve got oxfords (love), colorful booties, mad Mary Janes, casual suede slip-ons, some sparkle flats, cap-toes and wedge sandals. Something for anyone with demanding dogs. Cheers to happy and stylish feet:
Stay fabulous, and love your feet,
