Please help me find summer shoes for walking round disney. I hate trainers and want nice sandals.
I suffer with a burning in the balls of my feet that I have been told is Plantar fasciitis. I don't actually think it is but that's a whole other thread. This has left me in shoe hell. I LOVE heels but they are totally out of bounds. I hate trainers. I have seen Skechers mention on these type of threads but I don't like them either.
I think I am trying to find the impossible. I want a nice pair of summer sandals that are very comfy and cushioned.
Saltwater Saltwater Saltwater. They are the most comfortable things you will ever put on your feet. And flattering. They'll cost you about £40 here but less than $40 in the US. Oh, and they're designed to be amphibious (hence the name) so perfect for water park and wet rides.
Gabor sandals are amazing. I got a pair last year for tramping around cobble streets on holiday and it's like walking on puffy marshmallow. I now own 3 pairs different styles. these are next on my list.
I live in the US so I see plenty of people living in trainers all the time - and this is pretty much what all Americans wear around Disney. I got these last year and they are the most comfortable sandals ever - straight out of the box. I wore them all last week in Disney too. ecco sandals
I have a pair of the Merrells that Blue mentions, and I find that they do get a bit sweaty after a while. Disclaimer: I live in a hot part of the US, so wear a lot of sandals with bare feet. Another vote for Gabor; also Dansko do sandals if you like a clog-like style
