A little update I ended up by some Kenn sandals from a store at the Riverwalk Mall. Probably the most expensive “souvenir” I’ve bought for my travels, but it’s been well worth it.
Right now I’m in New Orleans, and I’m not in the French Quarter eating a beignet or strolling down Magazine Street. No instead I’m at my hotel sitting on a chair with my feet propped on my suitcase, because once again my feet have swollen.
It’s not as bad as it was in New York City two years ago, because I did get up and walk around the plane. I knew there would be problems for me in Houston yesterday. I didn’t buy any compression socks (which I kept planning to do), and the sandals I was brought along to wear were really bugging me. They were old and worn out, so I stopped off at Macy’s and bought a pair of padded flip flops. Not ideal, but my old sandals were even worse. I walked all around downtown Houston, and the heat and humidity I’m sure didn’t help.
Now I’m in New Orleans with six days to go here, before another 6 days in Colorado, and I really don’t want the swelling in my feet to get worse. As it is already the bones in my feet have seemed to disappear. I know the sandals I bought probably didn’t help, but they will be useful at the beach. I know I need to invest in a pair of good shoes or sandals. Something that’s comfortable to walk around in, and supportive.
So here’s my question fellow readers and travelers (or travel lovers) what’s a good brand of sandals for lots of walking. Like I said I’m looking for something supportive. The only name I can think of is Keen’s. Are they good? Do you know?
