In the beginning, footwear provided protection and comfort. This podiatric paradise did not last. First we began to decorate our footwear, and after that we became “well-heeled.” Down, down the slippery slope we’ve slid ever since, to the point where fashion produces bunions and hammertoes, and where absence of pain equals frumpiness.
Is it really true that stylishness and comfort are mutually exclusive? If by “fashionable” we mean 5-inch stiletto heels and some of the super-pointy toe boxes we’ve spotted lately, this may appear to be the case. But if we just reject the more extreme styles, we can see it’s a false choice. We can successfully challenge the idea that you can’t have it all, and we will do it by returning to “anatomically correct” footwear.
Have you seen the Aerosoles “You Betcha” shoe featured in the latest issue of the Oprah Magazine? This leather flat shoe is in style this spring season with the popular punch out design. We love this classic style which makes for a great transition shoe from winter to spring and summer. The shoe can look casual with a pair of jeans or more dressed up with a skirt.
