Protective Treatment for Decorated Shoes

My daughter has decorated some white leather clogs with designs done with colored Sharpie pens. What sort of clear treatment can she put on the shoes that will protect the designs?

What's the deal with flat feet / fallen arches?

My son, who turns twelve in a couple of months, seems to have flat feet. I can't quite figure out what to do next - if it is a serious problem, if it can be corrected with foot exercises, if we need orthotics, or what. Does anyone have any experience with flat feet? [more inside]

Help me find these golden high-tops!

So this website sells these awesome Game of Thrones House Martell high-top sneakers. Unfortunately they don't have them in my size (US Men's 13). I cried for a bit, and now I'm asking: Where can I find high-tops in a similar golden-orange color? I really love it!

I'm here to buy shoes; I don't need the extended powertrain warranty

Where (if anywhere) can I go in Manhattan to browse a reasonably large selection of high-quality men's dress shoes and try them on in different sizes without needing to deal with any salespeople? A warehouse with a bench would be fine. I am a guy with large but not gargantuan feet if that matters. Thanks.

Brand new unworn shoes reek of mothballs. Why?

Where the hell do I find narrow shoes?

I'm 27 and wear a size 9 (sometimes 9.5) in women's shoes. I also have very narrow feet and fear I'll be going barefoot soon if I can't find somewhat affordable, narrow shoes that don't look like they were made for little old ladies (no offense, little old ladies of the world). I am literally down to one brand of shoe. Halp. [more inside]

Shopping for Disney shoes for August

A portmanteau for this man's poor toes:
  • Are Keen Newports good shoes for a long trip to Disney World in August? If not, what beats them? I mean, can I simply wear my running shoes?
  • Do you try on footwear like this with or without socks?
  • Do you allow extra room on the assumption that your feet will swell in the steam heat?

    Not-too-dressy, sneaker-y work shoes (for men)?

    I love my Camper romeos, but the white outsole is, I've recently been informed, inappropriate for work/with dress pants. I'm looking for a shoe with a similar look/style without the white outsole: more sneaker-y than dressy, but dressed up enough that I can get away with wearing it at work. I really like desert shoes, but they're a bit too large and clunky for me. I looked at Camper's other offerings but don't see anything that appeals; same with Clarks. My Zappos searches keep turning up the same few options. Any ideas on specific models or brands I might be overlooking? Thanks!

    Shoes like Clarks Redbones?

    I have a pair of Clarks Redbone oxfords. They're my favorite shoes, and it shows: they're pretty near falling apart. I went online to order a new pair, but apparently they've been discontinued (tried a dozen different websites, all out of stock, and they're no longer listed on the Clarks site). Is there another line of shoes that is very similar to Redbones that I can order instead?

    What various socks are best for work, walking, lounging, and more?

    Askmefites always recommend socks. The best gift for dad, the best thing to spend money on, the best things to put on your feet, etc. Sometimes they recommend brands, sometimes they recommend uses of the socks. Usually, they just say "buy good socks". This is basically a question asking for more details. [more inside]

    hiking boots (that are mostly going to walk through city puddles)

    I'm looking for "hiking boots" that realistically will be used mostly on city streets. I mostly care about walking on slick cement or tile (e.g., many subway stations, fancy lobbies) without slipping, and about stepping into puddles without soaking my socks. A few times a year I may also wear them on a spring or fall day hike, so I'd rather they weren't heavily insulated, but otherwise actual hiking should be a secondary consideration. What features should I look for, and where would be a good brick-and-mortar store in Manhattan to buy them? (I have funny-shaped feet, so I want to try out a few options without waiting multiple round trips for shipping. Also, helpful staff would be a plus.)

    These Indigo by Clark's Plush Sateen in Black [size 8 Medium!] are the black shoes I keep at work at all times. I have a few pairs of black and brown under my desk, but these shoes are perfect. So so comfortable. Go with skirts, skirt suits, pants, anything. Nondescript, but classy. And I've killed them. I need new ones. I have boring normal feet-this shouldn't be so hard. [more inside]

    Shoes as comfy as Alegrias, but prettier...what are they called?

    I have developed problem feet; bunions, a chipped bone and arthritis. I tried Alegrias and woohoo, they don't hurt!! Nice styles, pretty colors, but they are just a bit...chunky. Know what I mean? I know about Dansko, Keen and Merrell, but are there other brands that combine exceptional comfort with good looks? I want a feminine effect. I like sporty, athletic, fun, colorful, girly shoes. Low heels. I am a lady, 55, petite, active and on my feet more often than off, during my work day. I have an eclectic, thrift store wardrobe, heavy on blacks, and neutrals, with colorful accent pieces. I tend toward "costumes" rather than outfits, if that gives you a sense of my style. I want pretty feet that don't hurt!

    How do I accessorize this dress?

    I've been struggling to find something to wear to an event next week that's nicer and more fun than business professional but definitely short of black tie (it's a non-red-carpet movie premiere). I've finally settled on this dress in black, but it looks a little plain on its own. I need help accessorizing! Particularly with choosing a necklace, but also: what shoes to wear? And what sort of purse-thing to carry?? Difficulties: I can't wear pumps/heels (though shoes with a stable, platform- or wedge-like, moderate heel are okay), and I have about a day and a half to buy everything in person.

    Earth shoes for men?

    Awhile back, Earth shoes used to offer footwear for men. My dad loved these, mostly because of their so-called Negative Heel Technology. Do they actually work? I have no clue. But dad wants what he wants, and he wants these negative heel shoes in the style of the old Earth shoes. I believe he wears something similar to this, and his pair is starting to wear out, so he is on the hunt for a suitable replacement. Are you male and a fan of Earth shoes/negative heel technology? Where do you get your fix? Are you not male but no someone else who's a fan of these shoes? TYIA!

    Best vegan men's dress shoes

    My husband likes fine dress shoes such as Allen Edmond's or Johnston & Murphy with leather soles. Is there a vegan alternative to this quality of shoe? Supposedly these brands only get better over time. He glanced at moo shoes and wasn't too impressed but he admits he needs to feel the shoe to be able to tell the quality. So who makes the best vegan men's shoes? Google searching provides info on who makes vegan dress shoes as well as a few websites but we are looking for more detail.
