It’s always a puzzle- you are at the shoe store and wonder, “will one of these shoes become my all time favorite or will I get stuck with a pair that pinches and is seldom worn? ” How to know? Do you try for trendy/stylish only to end up with a pair that looks exactly like all of the other shoes you own? It’s true, a perfect pair will compliment your clothing, be so comfortable they can be worn all day and will last for several seasons. Unfortunately, I have learned about shoes the hard way (with many unfortunate choices). My test for a perfect shoe is that I can stand at NPR for 8 hours and not be tired or sore at the end of the day. If I follow my guidelines and don’t get lured into the shoe “honey trap”, I know I will be happy. Definitely, time should be spent looking for shoes that are perfect.
