Walking in Style....versus...Walking In Comfort.....!



the Star -22/11/07

yesterday i came across these beautiful high heels decorated with glittering swarovski crystal made locally in The Star papers. i envy those who had the chance to wear those beautifully design shoes because i had not been wearing any shoes with high heels since i had my arthritis......that causes me to have swollen and stiff ankles..... now i can only wear shoes that has soft and flat inner soles.....


My expensive pair....of  "Ronald Mcdonald"....shoes made in UK...as Iris used to call it.......it has a special custom- made insoles specially for my feet...insoles cost around more than 400 ringgit malaysia...and shoes also cost around that figure....that comes up to nearly 1 k...for a pair of comfort shoes....!!....this type of shoe is also suitable for dibectics whose feet has harden or peeling skin problems..........it is very comfortable with soft padding all around and very light too.....
My another pair of expensive ...MBT ..sandals.....cost 800 rm ++

"MBT Sport Walkers by Swiss Masai
MBT©, Masai Barefoot Technology mimics the way the Masai tribe walks barefoot. These shoes have a stiff fiberglass in the sole. MBT shoes have no heel, forcing you to really roll through each step from heel to toe, enforcing good walking technique. They are heavier shoes and can take some getting used to. The makers claim that the design can make you feel better from head to toe. If you have problem feet and have tried many different solutions, MBT shoes are one more option."



This pair of sandals is really wonderful for me......before i bought this pair of sandals....my damaged and painful swollen ankles had caused my feet to turn outwards when walking......after training to walk properly with this pair of sandals...my feet has been align back to its normal position. Walking on this sandal is like walking on air.....it is so light thats it feels like you are floating instead of walking on the ground. They also make you sweat when you walk in it....because the rolling action from heel to toe cause your blood to flow from head to toe smoothly.............it is a good training shoe for those with backache problems....the only disadvantage is that you cannot walk on oily dirty wet grounds with these......because the special soles will be damaged....i only wear it at home for training and excercise or on those clean shopping complex.




My most recently bought pair of Adidas Okapi....walking shoes......very comfortable and light.....made of soft leather with soft cushioned inner soles...very ladylike and makes your feet looks small.....these only cost around 300 rm++..............

Hi Sweet Jasmine, thanks for leaving a warm welcome on my new blog! I must say I enjoyed looking through your pics and 'lau nuah' seeing all the yummy food that we can't even smell here in Nashville! Hee hee when I read your comments about food being not good or salty ke apa, I can only laugh to my gwai loh fiance and say not good also, better than nothing :))))

Love the Ronald shoes, I think I should get me something like that also... I find the older I get, the kind of shoe I wear is very important, this weekend I went shopping with sandals, now my achilles tendon sudah bengkak!

Hope you find those shoes comfortable and will give you relief from the arthiritis, my mother is like that also, sometimes she can't sleep at night cos her knees and legs so painful... she takes glucosamine + chondrotin, supposed to help but since it's natural, should be able to see the difference over time. In any case, hope you feel better and keep on posting those yummy pics! :)
