I need a new pair of sneakers, mainly to be used for going to the gym. Most sneakers appropriate for running are gaudy, strangely bulbous and look like some sort of terrifying cyborg technology. I just want a humble and functional pair of shoes that will protect my feet while exercising and possibly promote good posture. Any suggestions?
I need sandals--but I'm picky. And poor. [more inside]
I just bought a pair of sneakers that are made with white leather that has an unfinished feel to it (not glossy, but not suede either). My jeans are leaving blue marks all over them! How to remove the blue stuff, and how to prevent it in the future? Must I absolutely avoid wearing these shoes with jeans, or is there something I could treat them with, perhaps?
I'm looking for an online store to buy a shoeshine kit in Canada- any ideas? I'm living in Wells, BC, and the only nearby town is Quesnel. Wal-Mart has the stuff, but I flatly refuse to buy anything from Wal-Mart. What is a on-line Canadian shoe company that I could buy polish, brushes, etc. from? I'd like to keep it in Canada, so I don't have to pay international shipping.

What are some good standing/walking all-day shoes (8 hours worth of standing and/or walking around the office? I work in a sign production office, so there's a lot of basically standing working on projects on the table or walking around getting various supplies and operating printers, etc. all day. Really no sitting down at all. They need to be no more than $100 and go great with jeans. I like the bowling shoe or puma look. Not a big fan of Nike running shoes with jeans look. Maybe some Crocs?
I walk to work, so I'm good for the environment these days. However, the wear and tear that used be directed to my car tires now falls on my high heels! [more inside]

I bought some nice leather shoes a few months ago. I recently had to walk around the rainy streets of London for half an hour or so, and during this time the water soaked right up through the leather soles and into the uppers. Is this a) normal? b) preventable?
I am considering the online purchase of some Le Coq Sportif shoes. Undortunately there is no where in Santa Fe where i can try some on first, so I can find my size. For instance, I wear an 11 in new balances but a 10 in mephistos. Are there any websites that compare shoe fit by brand? Or does anyone have info on the fit of Le Coq Sportif? thanks

What can I do for numbness in the balls of my feet? Over the past year, as I approach 60, I have developed what I have self-diagnosed as a form of metatarsalgia - the balls of my feet get increasingly numb during the day - possibly due to thinning of the tissues in the feet. The more flexible and cushioned the shoe, the less the problem, and cushion inserts also help. Are there shoes and/or inserts that have helped others with this specific problem?
