Does the title seem weird to you? Maybe?
Have you ever heard someone say, “Ugh, my dogs are barking”?
Well if you haven’t it basically means that your feet (dogs in this case) are hurting and you need to sit down or stop walking. Sorry, I love a good saying. I also love a good story so here’s one for you.
A few years back I made the giant mistake of jumping off a fence from a very high distance in not-so-supportive shoes. I landed right smack on my heels and needless to say my feet were never the same. The jump (or fall) was so severe I couldn’t put pressure on my heels for about a month after the incident. Can you image me walking on my tip toes to the train station every morning? That was hell. The doctor’s orders were to stay off my feet for a few days and not play sports till the following Friday. Here I am more than two years later with the same problem. It doesn’t help that I stand at a desk for a living so that obviously didn’t make the situation any better. Over the years I’ve had to find shoes that look good while still being extremely comfortable. I’ve also purchased many heel pads and inserts to put in my shoes. I’ve done my research and finally found the best fitting pair of shoes with the greatest support for my feet. My new shoes from Hush Puppies from Zappos are perfect for my day to day activities in the city. They incorporate both style and comfort and mold to the shape of my feet so well. I can walk those long city blocks and don’t have to sit down to rest my feet like I usually do. If you have heel (or feet) problems like myself I would totally check out the selection on the Zappos site.
