Keen gets a lot of good reviews over on a very large board.
I've never found a shoe anywhere that helps stop me tripping over....Originally Posted by Tink, post: 48302
Some shoes make it easier for me to trip. I have to be careful with the sole choice and toe design, if that makes any sense? Of course, I tend to have some trouble with my Crocs in this area too. Sometimes they "stick" and that makes me stumble. With no balance, stumbles can lead to an outright fall. Not something I relish doing very regularly.
I've heard of Keen, but never worn them. They do get good reviews, though.
After three surgeries on my left foot and two on my left ankle, I'm pretty much stuck with shoes that are very supportive if I'm walking for any length of time. New Balance has been the best so far. I do wear Birks at home, even when running errands for an hour or two. Bare feet don't work for me, either. The minute my left foot has serious contact with a hard surface, I'm just about ready to scream! Well, not quite scream these days, but I do begin limping and favouring it, as there is nerve damage and it can be painful.
Have the same issue with some shoes tripping me up, Tink. It's trial and error, isn't it?
Yes, it is. I've always had a miserable time finding stylish shoes that fit. Fortunately, early on in my life I decided that stylish wasn't worth it and I went with the weird, but who cares it's comfortable shoe.
That's pretty much where I am these days.Originally Posted by Tink, post: 48576
But, occasionally I do miss my shoe collection and suffer tiny pangs of envy when I see a particularly lovely pair of shoes! :sigh;
I never could wear dainty pretty shoes, so no envy. But I do see some that are really neat and enjoy them as works of art.
I'll have to change my viewpoint and do the same!
I talked with another therapist I work with today, who is a tri-athlete and has done the Disney marathon several times, and she LOVES her Keens.. So I'm feeling pretty good about my shoe choice!:D
