I know for many with rheumatoid arthritis, a supportive shoe is best for their feet. I haven’t found that to be the case for me. In fact, the brands I tried that worked for others killed my feet almost instantly. This boot does offer a wide toe which I have found to be mandatory in my shoe selections, but it doesn’t offer a lot of support. It feels more like wearing a heavy slipper. The surprise I had with these boots is that even on the worst of this mild Chicago winter, I didn’t need to wear socks. The inside of the boots are completely lined in sheepskin! In the past I would wear a couple of pairs of socks on my morning walk in an attempt to keep my feet warm (it didn’t help) and the results were that I felt the circulation was being cut off in my foot. With the Adirondack, I never wore socks and not once came home with cold toes. Cold fingers, yes, but NEVER cold feet. I have worn them all winter as my shoe of choice for morning walks and to work and they have proved to be a good friend. My only complaint is my feet would sometimes get too warm when I was teaching. But pain in the balls of my feet and into my toes, never!!!!
With an early spring this year, I have had to move away from my Uggs and back into my Vibram Five Fingers. Although I love my Uggs, there is a certain freedom to being back in these minimalist shoes.
Plus, I have purchased two new pairs of minimalist shoes for this spring and summer that I will do reviews on soon:
|And of course I will be spending a lot of my nonworking hours barefoot, my number one choice.|

A friend of mine has that pair of Sanuk's and really enjoys them. Her husband has a pair too.
I have a really hard time finding shoes that fit my feet, and so I have 3 pairs of shoes. My winter boots, a pair of crocs and my keens for hiking. I am kind of a minimalist, but I think I would actually own a couple more pairs if I could find some that fit me.
But, going shoe shopping gives me a bad case of low blood sugar. I just am not the out-and-about shopping type.
You inspired me to look at Zappos and I found two pairs of shoes that I like. I was really surprised that there's both free shipping and free shipping returns! That is customer service at its best 🙂
I can't say enough good things about Zappos. I have returned A Lot of shoes and they always credit my account quickly. One time the shoe I wanted was out of stock and they sent me a link to where I could buy them elsewhere. That is impressive and why I keep going back to them.
I have small feet and I have problem feet. When you add those two things to the fact that I don't like shopping, Zappos is a huge hit with me.
Ooooo love me some shopping at zappos! I
Cathy hasn't our weather been crazy! Can't believe we have been in the 80s, love it and hate it at same time.
I don't have one single complaint about this weather. I thrive in this kind of weather. Enjoy it!
The sandals are awesome and beautiful. I love the style.
