Do they exist? I've got plantar fasciitis which was triggered by thin flat sandals last summer. I've managed to improve it over the winter by wearing inserts in my boots but it's going to be too warm soon. Ideally want something plain, tan or red.
www.shuropody.com/products/womens-footwear.html I had that a couple of years ago. It is horrible. Fugly shoes help the best. However there was a Shuropdy store I went which had good shoes. But I have to tell you that wearing tight, flat ugly shoes with laces worked best.
Is the Think! Julia any good? It has a thick orthotic cork footbed but the straps are not too thick. I fancy the cobalt. I have a bright green pair from 3 years ago. Its difficult to get pretty and orthotic at the same time! I am used to comfy fugly now. Don't know how to do a working link - sorry!
Which shoe shops stock Art shoes Selks? They look lovely but a search only gets me online stockists. I have some Kelso Earth sandals that have a thinner sole at the back than the front which stretches the tendons - helping with planter fasciitis. Comfy but they are practical rather than attractive.
I love Mephisto Helen, much, much more comfortable than Birkenstock (more flexible so you don't curl up your toes all the time), and I don't think fugly at all. And they are really well made and last for ages.
