Between my hammer toes and the fact that a feather rubbing the wrong way can cause my feet to blister, it’s hard for me to find shoes I love. I tend to stick with one pair of tennis shoes and one pair of flip flops for warmer weather for a year or when they fall apart, whichever comes first.
I take new shoes for a test walk around the store before buying. I’m not checking to see if they’re comfortable – I know they won’t be at first. I’m just trying to figure out where the blisters will form.
