stuck in a bad spot; threw out my old brown 'everyday' shoes due to age a week or 2 ago, thinking I would start wearing a new pair of Johnston and Murphys I got a while back. Don't know why it didn't happen in the store, but they are uncomfortable as HELL. The left shoe dug into my pinky toe so bad today after wearing them for only 2 hours that it rubbed raw and bled, not to mention having no support in the footbed Â
I have flat feet, left is wider than the right but right is longer, so finding good shoes that do not hurt after a brief period of wear is HARD. Went to my local shoe store thinking I could get something on clearance, and tried on some Mephistos... I know they are not well thought of here but I thought they were really, really comfortable and plenty wide for me. The looks were not wonderful by any means, and I hate that freaking nametag on every pair- but I'm going to get some anyway. After selling a lot on Ebay in the last few weeks I have hardly any shoes left, so these will be great as tweeners. Retail is laughable, Ebay seems to have some excellent deals though. Anyone care to comment on why they like/dislike the shoes? I'd appreciate recommendations of similar brand alternatives if anyone has any as well. This is the model I'll be getting, followed by the one I want:
Great shoes, overpriced, try some ecco's....for the money, same quality, same comfort, half the price.
