I have blogged about posture before, and here's another way of helping it!
I am kind of reaching a point where no shoes are comfortable on me. I spent my last days at work in grey tennis shoes during lunch or commuting times and wobbled around in heels the rest of the time.
Thankfully, I quit super-tall heels long ago, but any heel height was a feat.
I didn't spend a lot of time wearing flats, although I should have. I simply did not have a pair that fit anymore. My harder, normal flats got tight, and then even my "forgiving" flats got tight.
I wish I had had these BackJoy StandRight Bliss shoes around earlier!
From their website:
Created for women on the go, the Bliss Ballet style offers classic simplicity with all the benefits of our patented Natural Gait Line System™. The Ballet guides your foot during walking while a neutral position keeps your head, hips and feet balanced in good posture. Shock-absorbing materials cushion the foot and heel at impact and disperse energy for extra comfort and support.
Basically, these are the only flats that fit on my swelling feet without pain. My feet look semi-normal in them, and the sides expanded beautifully even though I was skeptical at first. The loops in the back make slipping them on very easy!
And actually, they feel very supportive inside, unlike most other flats. As you can see, my 9-months-preggo legs look semi-normal while wearing these. Also, standing for prolonged periods of time isn't as bad with these on, and anything that can help my posture at this point is much-appreciated. These will definitely be getting a lot of wear!
If you're used to wearing popular flats like Tom's, these are WAY more comfortable, and frankly, nicer-looking. If you're looking for a holiday splurge or gift for someone, these would be a good choice.
