  • [SIZE="3"]I need a pair of GOOD shoes... I have flat feet & it's starting to affect my knees & hips... ouch. I think I want a pair of nice leather-type everyday ones & nice sneakers too...

    But where do you go to get properly fitted & measured & have someone who knows about shoes help you?? (Rather than a teen or college kid making minimum wage, which is what I'm used to I think

    I also have big feet
    and fat feet
    along with my flat feet
    . It's like trying to find shoes for a duck...
    . Shoe shopping is NOT my favorite thing... which is why I've always gone the quickie, cheapo route... but now I'm gonna have to pay the price in more ways than one!

  • This may sound awful but try a a place that fits shoes for diabetics and elderly. you can probably look them up in the yellow pages or ask your pharmacist. Strange i know but the place around here(Chattanooga) that does that is a pharmacy.
Thank you lauralkemp!

  • We have a lot of sports/running shops and they will measure, look at your stride and your foot structure and fit you for runners or cross trainers. I will def. go that route when and if I ever start running again.
Thank you alb526!

  • I agree with alb526 for the sneakers. I went to a running shop and they were great. They asked me for a price range and gave me a choice of 3 or 4 pairs that fit my foot type and stride. If you go to a running shop, bring a pair of worn shoes so they can see which way your shoes were to fit you properly.

    For regular shoes I would go after teh running shoes so you know your size (usually a half a size smaller in shoes than sneakers). I would suggest easy spirits or naturalizers. They have some nice styles but are fit more like orthopedic shoes without necessarily looking like them.
Thank you teddybear1082!

  • I was going to say we have an athelitic shop that fits people here.
