Comfort shoes for mature women: Kohl’s and wedding challenges
Happy Tuesday, friends. Thank you so much for all your help with my wedding attire. Today, I am sharing comfort shoes for mature women: Kohl’s and wedding challenges.
Basically, today’s post covers the needs many have for comfort shoes for mature women.
We want to look stylish…feel beautiful…and still meet the needs for comfort shoes for mature women due to aging feet or knee replacements or hip replacements…and on and on.
This is where the struggle really is real.
Today, covers two topics….my friend Karen and I went shoe shopping at Kohl’s recently on the hunt for casual comfort. I will show you in the second half what we found.
But, to begin with…let’s discuss the wedding shoe challenges I have and ask you another question.
You have turned out to be quite a Style Committee.
COMFORT SHOES FOR MATURE WOMEN: WEDDING SHOE CHALLENGES
Confession Alert: I stalked this woman last Saturday at church.
She was petite, fashionable, thin, and possibly ten years older than me…making her around 80…(guessing according to face.)
I followed her because I was insanely jealous that she could wear these shoes! Not typical of many mature women I know…though I know you are out there.
Wouldn’t I love to be one of you, but, alas, I am a mature woman with aging feet issues…I firmly believe they were handed down to me from my mother…who had the same issues.
Hammer toes create so many comfort shoe challenges for mature women.
I must have a wider toe box or the curved toes rub up against the shoe…and I do just about everything to care for the toes when that happens….toe socks, Sheec socks, bandaids, and Vaseline helps.
But, when I size up for the toe box then many times the shoes do not fit my feet. I am a real 8 1/2, but for the toes I often wear a 9 1/2.
All of my shoes must be flat…the toes cannot handle heels pushing on them…not a kitten heel, not a wedge, NA DA.
I am well aware that many comfort shoes for mature women are less than attractive, so it becomes a big treasure hunt to find wedding needs.
I will need shoes for several outfits: the wedding, the rehearsal dinner, a couple’s shower on a ranch, the bride’s maid luncheon, and maybe a couple more events.
I confess that living in a warm weather climate, I have become accustomed to wearing sandals often…flip flop style allows my toes to be happy…dance…sing….they are not rubbing on anything.
Sandals are also cooler than shoes.
But one of my readers very kindly has said that the toes for all wedding needs should be in a shoe.
I had planned to wear a lovely VIONIC sandal to the rehearsal dinner since it is more casual…but she says…don’t do it.
And, I think she is probably right…but I thought, “LET ME TAKE THIS TO THE GROUP!”
Should hammer toes be covered for a special event? Or since my feet are aging, should I just not worry about it and go with sandals…I do get pedicures every two weeks to keep my feet healthy and pretty.
I have decided that for the wedding and events surrounding the wedding, I will need to spend more on my shoes.
When it comes to comfort shoes for mature woman, I always read the comments and reviews on the brand website…many beautiful shoes are just uncomfortable.
I am kind of curious to see if expensive shoes do make a difference. I have several pair on their way to my house right now. Pointed toe flats can go either way…it just depends on the toe box…
Here are contenders including a fun pair of sneakers for reception dancing…I wear gold and gold is the direction I will go over silver….
(Note: Espadrilles are for the more casual events (ranch, etc)
I know these wedding conversations get long, but I try to take you inside my head and there is so much rambling around in there.
Here are the Amalfi Espadrilles. I like them, but in order to get the toe box wider they are a bit wide on my feet. They are in the slideshow.
COMFORT SHOES FOR MATURE WOMEN: SHOPPING KOHL’S WITH KAREN
My friend, Karen, also. needs comfort shoes for mature women.
We recently found ourselves at Kohl’s trying on some of the shoes they offered…she made one purchase…and here are the ones we liked and would recommend.
Above, you are looking at the Life Stride Impact Women’s Slip On Shoe.
Karen found them to be very comfy.
I own a solid color pair of these shoes and they are so comfortable.
I wore them on our recent trip to Cabo and they were great for walking and easy on/off at the airport.
I think this version is so much fun…..The Easy Spirit Travelknot Women’s Mules.
The ones I own are the Easy Spirit Traveltime Women’s Classic Mules…offered in several colors.
I have had a great experience with Easy Spirit as a good brand for comfort shoes for mature women.
These are very comfortable and come in many colors.
This is the Sonoma Goods for Life Catahoula Women’s Slip on Shoe.
They also come in other colors and Karen liked them a lot.
So sorry that I set this Skechers flat on an Easy Spirit box, but this comfy shoe is Skechers Cleo Sport What a Move Women’s Flat.
I preferred the taupe color but they did not have my size for me to try on.
This is Dr. Scholl’s Nova Women’s Slip-on sneakers in oyster and with Odor Control.
Very comfortable for walking…and I walked around the floor at the store in it.
Finally…TA DA! This is the comfort shoe that Karen purchased. She was even surprised at how comfortable it is.
She walked around in it for a little while and kept saying…this is amazing.
She purchased the Skechers Reggae Slim Takes Two Women’s Sandal in navy & gray….with Memory Foam.
She was excited to find these for a trip she has planned.
OK girls…that is it for today. Please comment or ask questions on these comfort shoes for mature women…and my wedding shoe challenges…and/or the Kohl’s selections.
Now, you know why my brain is swimming…I love reading all of your comments!
