ESP if you have a bad back, and painful knee joints and your Birkenstocks and flip flops are not no longer cutting when walking long distances.

*No longer cutting it when walking long distances

I would but depends on how comfy they are

usual Thu 16-Jun-16 21:13:36

Yes I would. I only wear comfy shoes.

Sparkletastic Thu 16-Jun-16 21:13:57

No. I like comfy but I wouldn't go that far.

CointreauVersial Thu 16-Jun-16 21:14:11

Yes! They look fine. Perfectly OK.

The older I get the more I can't be bothered with uncomfortable shoes.

Mrskeats Thu 16-Jun-16 21:15:29

No
Birkenstocks all the way

Shenanagins Thu 16-Jun-16 21:17:57

Nope, there are far nicer comfortable sandals than those.

usual Thu 16-Jun-16 21:18:25

The Op said she can't wear Birkenstocks. any more.

I think there are comfortable more modern shapes available. I have to go for comfort too, I bought some from Clarks today which are a bit birkie like but with a strap around the back.

In want to say yes, as I'm a martyr to my sore feet but I'm afraid it's a no from me.

They would look crap with a skirt or dress but ok with leggings or skinnies, IMO. And I would wear them with the latter, my bunion demands comfy shoes.

expatinscotland Thu 16-Jun-16 21:25:27

Yes. I wear Keens. I don't care how the shoes look anymore. I'm a long-distance hiker/walker and very athletic. I'm fit and strong with great legs and I wear comfortable shoes.

AllPizzasGreatAndSmall Thu 16-Jun-16 21:27:57

I really can't imagine ever wearing anything that they would go with.

It would have to be trousers or a skirt so long that they were covered up, and any comfort factor would be outweighed by the risk of tripping.

WellTidy Thu 16-Jun-16 21:29:29

Yes, I go for comfort. I have bunions and can't have my feet hurting constantly, day in, day out. So I sympathise with your position.

I think they're lovely, sort of 70s geography teacher in a good way! DD who's 19 has a similar pair, she wears hers with a cord A line skirt. I have crappy knackered arthritic feet and I steal them occasionally. I'm medically exempt from wearing high heels so comfort is essential!

HermioneWeasley Thu 16-Jun-16 21:32:35

I have similar ones which are sketchers so have the memory foam in. They're amazing.

I will not tolerate foot discomfort.

Choceeclair123 Thu 16-Jun-16 21:39:18

No, take a taxi.

bibblebobblebubble Thu 16-Jun-16 21:44:53

I have Josef Seibel ones - like these. Ok they are not exactly sexy but they are super super comfy and have lasted literally years. Come in a few different colours.

ChishandFips33 Thu 16-Jun-16 21:47:01

If they're comfortable and don't aggravate your conditions then I don't wouldn't care.

Those who would mind don't matter; those who matter wouldn't mind what you wore

ChishandFips33 Thu 16-Jun-16 21:48:02

There are some days I can't wait to get home and slip in to my crocs clogs!!

BuntyBlue Thu 16-Jun-16 21:53:43

These are v comfy and supportive sandles

samlovesdilys Thu 16-Jun-16 22:00:56

Ive bought these - hush puppies nishi and then seem very comfortable...

specialsubject Thu 16-Jun-16 22:15:51

No - trainers or walking shoes or boots for a long walk. Exposed toes are no good for walking.

On reflection now that 70's geography teacher has been mentioned I actually think I had a pair of sandals similar to these when I was 8. Which is probably what was subconsciously making me think no.
I have bought another pair which I love and will be keeping for sure, these ones.
