I'm in love with a pair of sandals. A pair of "Prize" sandals from Taos.
It was a chance meeting - I wasn't looking for sandals, but there they were on sale on a sidewalk rack. Just one pair left, and in my size, too.
They're so comfortable it doesn't even feel like I'm wearing shoes. With arthritis seeming to have settled in for the long haul in my feet, I've even started wearing them around the apartment when I'm doing things that require standing.
They have velcro straps which are nice for stiff hands and swollen feet, and a firm but flexible moulded sole with a great arch. I am mildly obsessed with them.
And best of all, I like the way they look, so I'm much less tempted to wear horrible flats that destroy my feet but look cute doing it.
Yay for shoes!
