A Reader Needs Footwear Suggestions!!
"After 8 babies, I just cannot wear the cheap, cute, flat sandals that are so easy to come by and so cute with skirts. I have to have something supportive so I end up wearing my reebok tennis shoes with shorts or pants because I can't bring myself to wear them with a skirt. If footwear were not an issue, I'd love wearing skirts much of the time because I feel feminine and pretty in them. But there are days when my feet need support. Is there a sandal you could recommend that is versatile, supportive and comfortable?"
I struggled with feet problems when I was in high school. I actually went to a specialist and was fitted for orthotics that could only be worn in tennis shoes. My feet hurt constantly. Somehow, I just outgrew it after wearing the orthotics for about a year or two. I am extremely grateful!
During that time I just accepted the fact that I had to wear the tennis shoes with my skirts, and tried to get a simple tennis shoe design that wouldn't draw even more attention to the fact that I had a skirt on with tennis shoes! I wasn't thrilled with it, but I didn't feel like I had many other options.
I haven't invested in many expensive shoes. My sister blessed me by giving me some Birkenstock sandals, and I've lived in those two pairs the past two summers. They are extremely comfortable and have excellent support.
One good resource to check out is from the "She Wears Skirts" series. Amy and I did a post on footwear, and the comments left had wonderful ideas!
Can any of our readers help Stacy out and give ideas as to what comfortable shoes you wear with your skirts?
