To update you on this previous post:
1. Clark’s Wallabee Boot
This boot is adorable. In reality, it is every bit as Elaine Robinson as I had imagined. It runs quite large. This normally is not an issue; however one of my feet is larger than the other, and this shoe could not accommodate both comfortably. Had I sized down again (I already had based on reviews), my pituitary giant foot would have been squished. The toe box is tapered but square which left a lot of dead space atop the toes of the smaller foot, and I could only imagine the injury resulting from all the tripping I’d do. If you have even feet and toes and want some old school style, try these. They offer no arch support. The comfort is in the wonderfully gummy bear-like sole. Great. Now I’m hungry.
2. Clark’s Desert Boot
This old man boot was too stiff and uncomfortable for me. I felt like having a sandwich on top of a skyscraper.
4. Naya shoes
They cut into my big toes. Comfy enough for a semi-active desk job but not for standing all day. Love that they have eco-friendly materials and methods. Very cute and the bordeaux color is lovely – I almost talked myself into them.
5. Clark’s clogs
I wear these almost every day. I’m surprised at how versatile they are. They look like normal boots/shoes under long trousers, and they add some edge to skinny jeans. I can scuff them up and it only seems to add to the character, plus they give me the height I desire. They are a no go with skirts which is a drawback. I was so not excited about these, but they have saved my feet recently. Solid purchase!
I did not try the others; however, I noticed the Nefertiti shearling boots were on sale a few days ago at the DSW.
