So, I wear these shoes daily. They fit all my criterion: slip on, appropriate enough for a casual workplace, very comfortable, decent tread. Except that the tread doesn't last very long. [more inside]

need shoe recommendation for greenhouse/horticulturist

Mr. BellaStella works in a greenhouse. He stands in water a good portion of the day. For years he's been getting cheap Walmart shoes, which last about a month, if he's lucky. About once a year, he'll get an incredibly inflamed big toe, sometimes necessitating a trip to urgent care. He wears cotton crew socks with his shoes, so his poor feet are just fermenting all day.

Help me recapture the magic of my favorite pair of shoes.

Almost exactly 10 years ago I bought an amazing pair of shoes by Privo. This is the only pic I can find of this style. I wore them everywhere for three or four years and finally reluctantly got rid of them. Clarks bought Privo a while ago and the quality doesn't seem to be as good. Can you suggest other options?

Where should I shop for women's clothing in Vancouver BC

I'm going up to Vancouver for the weekend soon and find myself with a bit of a clothing budget and a favorable exchange rate. I don't shop at the same stores as my woman friend up there due to differences in taste and size range, and my other woman friend there is off at a meditation retreat so I can't ask her. Given the preferences below the fold, where should I shop for clothes and shoes? [more inside]

Boots like these, but better!

I'm looking for a better quality pair of boots to replace these Steve Madden ones I bought a few years ago. I really like the style of these boots, with the little crochet detailing, and they're quite "light," but they're wearing out and it's time for me to find something new. [more inside]

Durable, utilitarian, repairable men's shoes?

I'm tired of buying $100 shoes which don't last any longer than the $35 shoes I used to wear. It's time to put the Sam Vimes Theory of Economic Injustice to work for me. What are some well-made men's shoes that I can wear every day to walk the two miles to my casual academic-environment workplace and back, plus wear at work, without them wearing out immediately? I should be able to get them repaired or re-soled when they do have problems. Under $500 would be ideal. [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.

    My wife ordered these boots but they are not slim enough in the calf. (The site states they are 13" around at the top but it is really 16".) She can't find anything under $300 that is a slender enough size. She's about 5'3", ~110 lbs, size 8 shoe. Any suggestions? Would like to keep it under $150-200 if possible.

    Need comfy shoes for around the house

    This seems like such a stupid question, but that's because I'm stupid about shoes and clothing. Our new house has laminate flooring, and it's killing my feet. I guess I'm used to the cushion that carpeting provides. I need some shoes I can wear around the house that have enough cushion that they'll prevent some of the foot pain I'm having. Difficulty: I hate wearing shoes in the house -- not for cleanliness reasons, but because I'd prefer to walk around in socks. Some kind of sandal would therefore be best, because it would be the least constricting. Also, I get really hot feet, so I need cool shoes. So, please, name that shoe, and tell me where to find it.
