Dumb Questions And Crocs With Socks

Oh yes there are dumb questions. Like the one my husband asked me yesterday: Why don’t you wear high heels?

Huh? We’ve been married 20 years and I can guarantee you that he has never seen me wear a pair of high heels. Never. Unless a 1 1/2″ heel fits that definition. I think it was 2004 I last wore anything that high.

Pretty shoes and my feet just don’t get along. I envy women who can wear pretty shoes and I wish I could wear high heels. I’ve tried and the pain is unbearable. This is probably because of injuries to my feet, none of which were caused by high heels. You see, I’m a klutz. Clumsy. Awkward.

I’ve injured my left foot and ankle five times seriously enough to have to use crutches before I was 35. Now that I’m just a tad bit older and dealing with arthritis on top of old injuries, comfort and support in a pair of shoes is the primary goal. I really don’t care what they look like.

So… yes, I wear Crocs. And sometimes Skechers. And even worse, I wear them with socks!

  1. Try those obscenely overpriced Fit Flops (not the knockoffs, but the real ones, some available on Amazon reduced prices). The most comfortable flip flops ever, with arches and thick soles and purport to tone one’s calves, etc. as one walks. Yeah right, but they are REALLY comfy.
    I never wear high heels either except whatever is in:
    Dansko clogs (don’t buy them any more since they started making them in China as they are no longer a good fit), Merrell ventilated walking shoes, Birkenstocks, Crocs, and assorted flat pumps. I walk several miles a day just tramping around the office and near it and doing errands, so comfort is primary.

  2. I love socks, they give your feet warm fuzzy hugs all day, and I love my crocs, so yes, I combine the two. I live in runners on most days, my ‘dress shoes’ are collecting dust in the closet.
