Hey Phyll one thing I did find that I realy liked at Red Wing were the Sport Sandals. They weren't terribly ugly. and looked very comfortable. I am strongly considering going back today and buying them. NoLou have her check out the orthotic inserts too. They are great. For someone who needs extra support or cushioning. They are nice because you can put them in the oven to heat them up making them pliable, then put your foot down on them so they actually mold to the shape of your foot. They are about $45 and come with an unconditional 90 day money back guarantee. I have terrible flat feet, Plantar Fasciaitis, bone spurs, so I need something to give me an arch, so I use them, as is, right out of the box and they give me more relief than the custom orthotics I paid big bucks to the doctor to have made.
Heres my ugly shoes:
Here's the water sandals Phyll:
Hope these help somebody with sad tootsies.
