Not much to say about this, except that I really like wearing flats during the day. I’m always looking for ways to keep an outfit interesting without sacrificing my feet (and therefore the rest of me). It’s true that the padding under our toes and heels thins out as we get older, so we do need more cushion in our shoes. An article by the LA Times also said that our feet spread out and get wider from years of use (ah, gravity). So if those old shoes are feeling tight, maybe this is why.
It’s not too surprising to read this. I’ve been gravitating toward more foot-friendly shoes for a few years now. I save my heels for dinners out or special occasions. In general, wedges have become my go-to heel whenever possible. Things are bound to change in our bodies and I’d rather be healthy than hurting.
Are you more of a flats gal or do you usually wear a heel? And how do you feel about that?
