i like flat shoes
i tooo like falt ones
and sandals are comfotable
OK, I just re-read the original post.
I needed to replace some walking shoes. i found a place on RunnersWorld.com that finds shoes for you. You answer a handfull of questions and they recommend a few shoes. They will be geared for runners, but it helped me as far as pronation and arch support goes. I referred back to this quite a bit when I was looking for shoes.
why not wear sandals..it's comfy you know..
Road Runner is a place I've been to a few times and I'm sure any other store like it will do just as well. If there isn't a shoe for your specific situation, they can suggest the correct insole or orthopedic for you there as well. And I suggest you to take the help of shopping assistant, it is almost always a free service whether or not you purchase anything and they can make good suggestions.
Thanks for the update, I have super flat feet and struggle to find shoes that are decent for my foot. I agree overall Merrill's are good, as are Bally's. I didn't catch where the first poster recommended looking at/purchasing shoes (other than through the personal shopper) - did anyone else?
Secondly (and not really related to this post but since I can't start a new thread until I have 5 posts I thought I'd ask if anyone in here is a "sneaker" or casual shoe expert. I was in Amsterdam last week and found a brand of shoes that I really like (and even have been able to find a photo of one of the brand's shoes) however I'm having a really tough time figuring out what the brand is. I don't want to hi-jack this thread (and apologize for already going off topic, but if anyone is an "expert" on identifiying shoe brands or wants to take a try at it send me a private message and I can send you the photo).
I've heard Reebok do pretty good shoes for pretty much any shape of foot. But i'd recommend your sister visits some sports shops to get their expert advice!
I also prefer scandals
Sandals are good. However be careful with flat sandal. Ones with heels are better. Additionally, you may want to try flats with an elastic upper for a snug fit (keeping shoes from spilling over on the sides).
