NYC is one of my favourite cities and spending time back here again just makes it harder to leave!
In Manhattan, you could walk everywhere and anywhere. It’s also one of those places where dressing up for drinks or brunch is just part of everyday life. But pounding the pavements in thinly soled sandals and uncomfortable heels can really take its toll – not just giving you pain at the end of the day, but probably for life (just ask a few golden ladies and chances are quite a few of them would have pains caused by improper footwear during their younger days…)
Being back in the city many years later, I’ve found that my feet can no longer take walking the whole day in footwear with little support (fyi, thin-soled flats and flip-flops are included in this category!). While I wish all brands would start creating footwear that protect our feet in the long-run, here are some that I’ve found to provide more shock-absorbence and comfort for precious feet.
p/s – While these tend to be pricier, they are definitely worth it in preventing foot pain in the future. To get more bang for your buck, choose classic styles and neutral colours that you can wear more often!
