Let me just say that when it comes to everyday shoes, I’m a Dr. Scholl’s girl at heart. Those massaging gel soles just keep me on Cloud 9, especially since I’m standing or walking most of the day. Top that with the fact that I have very flat feet and you know that no other shoe will do. I’ve tried other flats and they just don’t give my feet the support or comfort that they need.
The only complaint that I have about my Dr. Scholl’s is that they don’t last a long time. And maybe that’s because I do more walking and standing than the average person. Anyways, my current pair of Dr. Scholl’s loafers started showing more than it’s share of wear and I was forced to head out in search of a new pair of shoes. And while I love Dr. Scholl’s, I wasn’t exactly thrilled about having to spend $30 and some change plus tax on a pair of shoes. I know I know $30 seems cheap, but hey I’m a single mom on a budget. Not to mention I’m moving and have moving expense, rent and utilities to cover in two weeks.
So, I decided to try a different brand. As I walked the shoe aisles of our local Wally World aka WalMart, I stumbled across a deal I could not pass up. Faded Glory flats for only $3.00!! Now that’s a price that I can work with for sure. I have to admit that I was a little skeptical at first. I know that Faded Glory is a great brand when it comes to clothing, but I’d never tried out their shoes before.
So, I decided to step my foot in a pair and see how they felt. I was amazed to find out that the flats felt great. They felt almost as better as the Dr. Scholl’s. I mean to be a regular shoe with no special gel soles or anything, they felt incredible awesome to my feet. I decided I would test them out a little further and buy a pair.
Well, I am happy to report that it has been five days later and my feet still feel great. I’m not saying that I won’t ever buy another pair of Dr. Scholl’s, but I’m not in a hurry to trade in my Faded Glory’s either.
