Can we talk comfortable shoes?
Every day I go to court and see the young lawyers in their high heels. Yes, I wore them too back in the day. But those days are gone and I want to have healthy feet for me to go the distance.
I got a lot more walking to do! So, I am VERY interested in comfortable shoes. How about you?
I predominately dress business casual, and occasionally wear a suit. Most days, I am wearing pants and flats. For the times when I wear a skirt suit, I wear low heels.
But that doesn’t mean they have to be ugly!
Life Stride Flats
When I wear pants, I usually wear a pair of these. Actually, I own three of these in three colors! Tan, blue and black. Here they are.
Here’s what mine look like!
Naturalizer Dress Pumps
If I wear a skirt, I like to wear a little heel. Notice I said – little heel. Any more than an inch would be dangerous for me – aging and klutzy. These are the little heels I wear.
Here’s what mine look like:
I have 2 pairs of Naturalizer sandals and I love them! The open toe ones are for when I have my nails polished. When they aren’t polished, the toes stay inside.
Here’s what mine look like:
I used to pay $100 for good walking/running shoes. No more. I discovered these shoes at WalMart and they are awesome! They usually sell for about $19.97 and I buy a couple pairs at a time. When one is looking raggedly, I swap them out for a new one. Super comfy!
I love these!
No, I’m not a big shoe collector. In fact, my 20-year-old son has more shoes that I do!
But the shoes I have are all shoes I love and are all shoes I wear regularly.
Who has energy or time for anything else?

Hi Christine and welcome to Midlife Share the Love Party! These days I’m definitely a flats girl or joggers. Last month I was a guest speaker at a function and had to wear heals. That was a shock to the system, trying to balance 🙂 Comfort doesn’t need to mean ‘without style’. There are many stylish designs for those of us who don’t want to be tottering in the clouds as we walk. Have a great day and thanks again for linking up. #MLSTL
Found you at #MLSTL and Oh my goodness! How timely is this article! I was out shopping this afternoon (in my sport casuals) and watched a woman my age hobbling – literally hobbling – along after her husband wearing 6″ spike heels with 2 ” platforms under the toe. I did that in my younger days and my feet ached then!
I will always love a classic high heel but those days are gone for me now. I rarely need a dressy shoe but still keep a coupleof pairs of lovely 2″ heels in my closet.
My despair currently comes from the fact that my all-time favourite shoes are a pair of flats I bought from a street vendor in Barcelona two years ago – they are nearing the end of their life span and next time I’m in Spain I shall buy a dozen pair in every clour possible!

I love a great pair of high heels, but I’m tall and always feel like I’m towering over everyone when I wear them. My daughter is short and lives in heels – I have shoe envy every time I see her in them. Flats can look great – but there’s nothing like a strappy heel!
Thanks for linking up with us at #MLSTL and I’ve shared this on my SM xx

Shoes are such a big deal for me. And comfort.
It’s just so important to take good care of our feet! I’m going to Pin this post for future shopping reference!
The last time I wore any type of heel I fell off of them and broke my foot. I only buy comfortable shoes.
Yep, now I’m not working (much) I opt for flats most of the time but I make sure they’re pretty! I’m a little addicted to moccasins which my feet love me for.
