Well, Mom got her new shoes in the mail today. She immediately decided to try them on. It was pretty funny!! She kept trying and trying to get her foot into the left one, but her last middle toes kept folding over instead of going into the places for them.
She was getting pretty frustrated, then decided to try on the right one... bingo, slipped right on like a well fitted glove!!! She hopped around the kennel, decided it was pretty comfy, so really started working on the left one. Of course, this time it also slipped right on with all her toes where they belong!
So far she has worn them for NINE hours! They must be pretty comfy cuz usually she peels off her shoes before she even gets all the way into the house after work and she is still wearing these!
She says they are GREAT!!! They have nice, tough but flexible soles and a great arch support, yet the tops are very soft fabric material. Mom HATES those sandals that go between your toes so she was worried about the feeling of the separated toes... no problem!
She is having a MAJOR pain in her bad knee but is hoping it is NOT from the fact that these shoes have no heels and are therefore putting different angles on her walking. I reminded her that she ALWAYS goes barefoot and never has a pain in her knee, so it must NOT be her shoes.
BTW, they ARE pretty funny looking. Fortunately, she got the ones that are black and gray and not the hot pink ones or the lime green ones or, worse yet, the bright purple ones, BOL!!!!

I don't know about this...Are you going to be embarrassed to be seen with her if she chooses to wear them someplace other than home or work?
Coco, I am embarassed to be seen with her ANYWAY! Seriously, I am sure hoping she doesn't wear them out in public!!!! They sort of look like those old clown feet, hehehe!
Hey congrats on YOUR DDP today!
No heel ? That will stretch the achilles tendon and not help the knee. Do they have SOME heel ? You can try an thin heal insert .. that may be enough to raise and balance the leg.
Glad she likes her shoes!
