Step Right Up: Fashionable and Comfortable Footwear
Smart footwear is taking on fashion and function, using tried and tested standards – witness the Teva inspiration of last spring’s athletic-inspired numbers or New York-based designer dynamo Marc Jacobs’ ode to Dr. Scholl’s classic wood-soled sandal for spring 2015 – and the latest tech to create shoes that are made for wearing. And walking. Comfortably.
And don’t forget sneakers. Skechers Flex Appeal has men’s and women’s styles made with a memory-foam cushioning insole. Like your mattress, it contours to most foot shapes, allowing the shoe to help relieve pressure, particularly good for sensitive feet, they are made from extremely lightweight, breathable mesh. We like this sneaker-loafer hybrid, an easy slip-on for a little more of a dressed approach. Men’s Equalizer Persistent Walking Shoe, $80, Skechers
