One thing I like about warmer weather is the chance to wear sandals. I love sandals, and if I had tons of money would probably buy even more pairs than I have. One of the biggest problems with sandals, though, is that often they don't have much support for my feet. So, if I wear them to work, by the time I get home, my poor feet sometimes hurt, but always wish they could get some real comfort.
I used to make sure that I put on my walking shoes for a while, but in really hot weather, that only made the rest of me uncomfortable. A few weeks ago, I was in the local City Sports when they were having a sale, and I saw these:
They were on sale, which is always appealing to me, and they looked like something a little bit more than the regular flip-flop, so I tried them on. Wow! Even though they are plastic, they are pillow soft, and even better, they have cushioned heels and arch support. They were *so* comfortable trying on, I decided that I would give them a try. And since then, my feet and I have been so very glad that I did!
Before this, I'd never heard of the brand, Oofos. (Not that it means anything - I'm not necessarily a shoe-brand afficionado.) But they make these shoes for both men and women, and there are several different colors to choose from, besides the periwinkle blue that I chose, shown above. I have been wearing mine a lot, and they are still as comfy as the first time I tried them on. Even though they are plastic, they are not plastic-y feeling, and the piece between your toes does not rub at all, so you don't get blisters. If say, you are giving your plants a drink of water and your shoes get wet, it's not a problem and they are not in danger of being ruined. :-)
You should try a pair of Oofos. Now that I have tried them, I can say that I would definitely buy them again, even if they were not on sale.
