Mephisto? Why not!

Y'all know by now that I'm a practical sort of gal and as much as I like fashion and glitz, it don't mean nothing to me if it's not wearable. Living in a walker's town makes this Weltanschauung all the more justified.

In that spirit, and because my plantar fasciitis has bothered me SO much lately that I kinda let out a soft scream every time I get up, I decided to try a pair of Mephisto's.

Make no mistake: I consider Mephisto styles to be somewhere between fugly and approximately wearable. Paragons of style, they are not. Also, they're usually in the $200+ category, which is a no-no for this, and this may come as a surprise for you, utterly frugal shoe lover. However, as you may know, Mephisto is one of the most famous brands in comfort shoes, so I guess it's only fair that I would give them a chance, which came in the shape of this red Mary-Jane:
I snatched the last pair in my size on Zappos for $40, which seemed just about the right price to me for a trial (regularly they're about $230). And let me tell you, they do live up to the comfort hype: plenty of arch support, roomy, outrageously comfortable. I'm in fact really pleased. Sure, they do look somewhat homely--something that LRRH would obviously wear on her errand to her grandma's house--but hey, my poor achy feet deserve the comfort, and the bright red color is bound to cheer anyone up. All I'm missing is a couple of blonde braids and a red hoodie to complete the look.... :)

I found a similar pair on 6pm, but I think the red is different.

Scarpediem, I think you're charitable for giving the Mephistos a chance, as they are comfort shoes with all the fugliness that so often goes with that moniker. Have you see the new Anyi Lu line? Any thoughts? And the really pressing question: what's your assessment of the new Cole Haan line with Nike Air? What if -- gulp -- there were heels that were comfortable!!?? What would we talk about?

In the very best moment of Jessica Dickey's "The Amish Project Runescape Gold," the new solo show at American Theater Company performed by Sadieh Rifai, a telling truth is observed about what invariably happens when an outsider — an "English" in Amish terminology — catches sight of a horse and buggy on some plain-and-fancy trip to rural Lancaster County, Penn., or Holmes County, Ohio, or Elkhart or LaGrange County in northeast Indiana rs gold. You stare — often there are a couple of cute kids staring back from the cart — and you first wonder about the hats, the beards, the lack of electricity, the resolute determination to live according to non-materialistic values and so on Runescape Gold. And then, at least for a fleeting second, you ask yourself a question: "Could I be better?"

In my leisurely hours I have often ventured to locate something about myself which is not utterly commonplace and can be linked to me as the signature tune of my personality - a habit buy rs gold, a bias, a slant in my interest. I am a music addict, an avid listener, my appetite never satiated. Every time the humdrum calls of daily living stifle the music and oblige me to turn around to the sawdust demands of domesticity rs gp. How often have I dreamt of retiring to the peaceful confines of a little room, completely shut away from the dins and bustle of the outer world for an uninterrupted period of not less than seven days at one go and remain under the unbroken spell of blissful, pure music! Like most dreams not coming true runescape gp, this too has remained unfulfilled, beckoning me like a mirage. ……
