Either or. I am just having some knee problems that seem to be worsened by heels and wedges. I have some cheap ballet flats that are ok but would like something a bit more. I had found my brand of wedges but I really need to not wear heels a while.
Can we change this thread into a "flats/shoes in general" one? Lol.
I don't think I've ever owned a pair of shoes that wasn't flip flops or boots or well-wore sneakers that hasn't caused me awful blisters or foot pain. This is probably because I like to spend a total of <$20 on my shoes, but I'm definitely paying the price. Right now I wear the most casual flip flops possible to work and change into real shoes outside my office door.
I'm looking for reasonably priced, pretty/cute/whatever, probably kind of girly/not boring shoes to wear. Flats, not heels, but could be strappy sandals or something.
most flats have a narrow toe box which just isn't good for your feet. I'm in love with my 'Mr. Softees' by Aerosoles. They feel like you are wearing slippers! They aren't supportive at all, but are pretty cushiony. I have extra inserts in mine (although a big orthotic likely would not fit).
