If you are young and gorgeous you will of course be prepared to suffer in pain for gorgeous shoes and sandals, I remember once in my teens buying a pair of shoes in a size down because I had set my heart on them and they only had them in a size too small !! The things we went through to look good :) nowadays, although I am still a shoe addict, and yes, I have been known to buy shoes that I will 100% never wear just because they looked to flippin gorgeous in the shop, I find myself ignoring anything that I own that is slightly uncomfortable and reaching for the safety of comfies, I am soooo boring now that when I go to events the comfy shoes are in the bag for the journey there and the journey home.
I am delighted to have been introduced to Strive Footwear. The sandals I chose were metallic gold leather ( who doesn't love gold ? ) and are shaped to fit the contours of your natural foot, the real term is Biomechanical Footbed Technology this technology works to support your feet in their natural position.
When you first put a pair of these sandals on they feel really quite odd, there is nothing natural feeling about them at all, this is of course because we are used to wearing flat soles and our arches have had no support, they company are well aware of this and recommend that you gradually break yourself in to wearing them starting with one hour on the first day and building up. Sounds like a faff ? trust me you will be glad you did, mine are now like wearing slippers, and the beauty is that now I have got used to having a better posture my back feels great, and they have now become my go to comfies ! so, you see there is a lot to be said for being sensible :)
