Well....I really needed some shoes to wear for our trip. I have seriously bad feet these days, not sure why, but it has got to the point where I can't even walk around the mall without having throbbing, hurting, feet at the end of the day. I got a pair of shoes when I started my running venture. They were Avias. The most comfortable pair of shoes I have ever had. They are supportive in areas where I needed support and have this cantilever heel that is just amazing. During all my running/walking/training my feet did not hurt. Well, the problem with those shoes is that I wore them out between my training and coaching soccer. AND they were just really really ugly! Mostly white with a little pink on them.
It has gotten to the point where I think I am going to have to wear these kind of shoes all the time because ANY other shoes just KILL my feet, even sometimes when I don't even do a lot of walking. So, in the course of searching for good Disney walking shoes, I was hoping to find some nice "cool" looking Avias. After lots of searching I did find THESE shoes, and even ordered them. WELL, when they came in, they did NOT have the insole as advertised, they were just flat uncomfortable shoes. I returned them, and after two intense afternoons of scouring every shoe store and department store around, I settled on these:
I really really really wanted brown shoes that I could wear with my every day outfits, but push came to shove and I had to have some asap for our trip. So, the black and gray ones will have to do. I am looking at them in this picture and they look a little "retro" to me.....
It's not that they are that bad, it's just that I tend to buy a lot of brown and tan-ish hued clothes so brown would have really been ideal, but, the price was right and I will just keep my eyes open since this may have to be my one and only shoe brand from now on. Seriously, it is more comfortable than being barefoot!
