Well, as you know I've been going to the gymn walking like a mad woman, trying to get rid of my pooch. My back hurt a little at first but it got progressively worse, instead of feeling better.
I stretched and stretched, but it still hurt. I got three massages, but to no avail. What was wrong with my back?!
Guess what? It was my shoes! I was wearing tennis shoes that I probably bought 5-6 years ago...they still looked good, so what was the harm in wearing them, right?
Well, when I was on the Misty Meadows Farm in Minnesota on vacation, it occurred to me to buy some cushiony shoes, something I am not accustomed to buying. I usually buy blingy shoes with little or no support, like these shoes I recently bought.
No real support, but aren't they pretty?!
I started by buying these shoes, they're all right cute, but not usually what I go for. I bought them at K-mart and they were on sale, so they cost approximately $17.
The brand name is "Cuddles" and it's true, they really cuddle and cushion your feet. My back immediately started to feel better!
I like the cutouts on the red suede. I wore these everywhere on my Minnesota vacation!
And then I bought these mules, also at K-mart, also on sale. They have a nice arch support and are super comfy too. They are Thom McCann. I don't remember ever owning Thom McCann shoes....I guess I'm growing up.
The cutouts in these shoes are pretty cute too. I wear these all the time now and my back finally feels great.
Last, here are the walking shoes I bought. I researched some online for the best walking shoes, and New Balance got pretty good marks across the board. They are extremely lightweight and comfy and have got a nice arch support. And more important...they're cute!
What shoes do you wear that make your back feel great?
