How Often Do You Have To Buy New Shoes?

Posted by Shaira on 8/15/02 at 19:39 (092613)

I bought my NB's in June I think. Well they're flat now and I'm back in pain. I need to buy a new pair...or I'm also thinking of getting Merrell's right now (Walking Co. is open till 8).

PF is so darn expensive! DH doesn't understand that I have to buy new shoes...again. But there's nothing I can do! My feet need to feel better and I can't walk unless I have total CUSHION under my feet.

You need new shoes! I think it really helps PF if you can get new shoes at least once a month and switch them back and forth. For a while there, I was getting some every week or two.

Maybe your DH will understand if you tell him to think of it as a medical expense. Tell him how much ESWT costs. LOL

I went out last night and bought 3 new pairs of shoes at The Walking Co. ( http://shop.store.yahoo.com/walkingco/index.html) .

I bought 2 pairs of Merrell's (leather and velvet pair) size 7 men's (men's shoes are wider) and one pair of Walking Co. made shoes with HIGH arches in it, sort of that sandal style. I figure I could wear it with a dress or even pants when the weather is warm around here (SF).
