one question…and my aching feet and the solution---bloch, born, old gringo, ugg, Marchez Vous, Chie Mihara

If you could ask one question of me---what would it be? Really submit a comment and I might write about it….I will consider it as right now with Christmas on the horizon I am not really feeling the blogging vibe.

So what would I change---I would get my old feet back. Really It would be nice to never have to worry about health again but that is a daily thing for me--not the worry but the maintenance. I juice, take supplements--like 40 a day when I am on it and I exercise. I still need to add daily meditation but I grab it where I can.

I think cooking meditation like walking meditation may be my new thing. There is something methodical about it. I also feel meditative when I knit.. working on a hat right now. I personally love knitting projects that go quickly.

 I want to start yoga again and maybe that will help the feet. The feet---I am in boots with orthotics or tennis shoes with orthotics all the time. I dream about high heels and when I dare to wear them I have to be tender to my feet for days afterwards. With my event coming up in March I am on the hunt for shoes. Why can't anyone make shoes that don't hurt and look cute--or fancy? I don't know why the feet started…maybe because I didn't have enough support in my shoes for a bit. I was living in my uggs while I was going through treatment…Now I put my orthotics in them!

I just became a tap shoe snob--I had started tapping back in June in rather simple entry level shoes. Then I learned a lot about tap shoes and the choices there are. So I bought a heavier pair so I don't have to slam my foot into the floor so hard and can tap to my hearts content…love these shoes. They are by Bloch.. they are padded! I am going to put my pink laces in them---

I saw a new podiatrist who is going to send my shoes to the lab so they make insoles that will fit in my heels--with arch support and extra padding in the ball of the foot. I am so excited I can't believe it.

shoes I want to try but haven't yet…

a comfy(hopefully) spring/summer heel click thru to see them--anthropologie doesn't let me use the pics!

There are so many i love it's hard to choose...

Another shoe company I just found is Marchez Vous
isn't this gorgeous? I had tried on maybe 50 pairs from other companies before I found anything that felt even moderately good--got these on a sale/deal and they are the ones going to the lab to be adjusted.

My standby boots that always fit with my orthotic are ugg,

got these last summer in brown...

a favorite pair for winter  by born--toasty and cushy insole

and old gringo

always dreaming of my next pair.
