    Dansko: I have sandals, wedges, and heels. I adore them all. So worth the cost and basically the only high heeled dress shoe my high arches can tolerate.
    Birkenstock: I've been a loyal wearer since the 90s. I now have 4 pair in rotation all summer long. I hate to see the summer end and with it, the end of Birk season.
    Haflinger: best clogs that I wear in winter as my slippers. They make slippers too, but I prefer the clogs with a regular, outdoor sole.

Have had great improvement or total elimination of: migraines, bloating/distention, heartburn, cystic acne, canker sores, bleeding gums, eczema on elbows, dry skin and scalp, muscle cramps, PMS, hair loss, heart palpitations, fatigue. I'm amazed.

    I've had good luck with Born, Blondo and Clarks for boots.

    In the summer I love crocs sandals like the Isabella t-strap.

    Target has stepped up their shoe game and now sells surprisingly comfy flats in wide widths. I sometimes add an insole or heel pad.

    I love my Cole Haan wedges (I have 5 different pairs!) for work. I like them far more than the Vionic wedges I first bought when I started having foot pain. I have had plantar fasciitis, heel pain, and some nerve issue on the fatty part of my foot near my toes over the past 3-5 years. Before I had feet issues, I used to love my Born ballet slipper/flats and my Sanuk flip flops, but my podiatrist says flats and flip flops are the worst shoes for people with feet issues.

    For more casual outings, I like my Ecco Damara sandals and Dansko Season sandals. They provide a lot of support for finicky feet.

    Love Ahnu but #@$Teva bought them and basically killed the brand. So mad at them for it!

    I own Ahnu sandals, Dansko sandals and boots, Birkenstocks sandals, Merrell and Vasque hiking boots and Brooks sneakers. The Brooks and Ahnus are the most comfortable for me by far. I love the Naot footbeds but they're too narrow for me.

    As someone with crazy sensitive feet, I can attest that Borns are not true comfort shoes - they're attractive, but the stiff leather and soles just don't cut it. That said, I have a favorite pair of Born MJs that I love (appearance wise) but can only wear in short installments.

    I tried on a pair of FitFlops and couldn't believe how comfy they were! Do they make "pretty" styles?

    I love Fly London shoes- I bought one pair at a local boutique (dressy-ish sandals) and was amazed how comfortable they were. A friend who works on her feed all day swears by them too.

    Aside from my fit flops, I’ve recently discovered the woolen All birds! I thought they were all hype but wow, these things are so comfortable, like walking on cushions!

    I have fussy, wide, plantar fasciitis-affected flat fleet. I have to wear fit flops, super feet inserts or similar arch support at all times, but I am able to wear the All birds with the original insert. I’ve recently started using them for walking around the city for hours at a time. they are washable, though I’ve never tried it, and can be worn with or without socks.
