I will be moving to NYC in a few weeks and will be doing a LOT of walking while I job-hunt. I need to find a good pair of vegan shoes that are dressy, but also supportive. I have a condition called Plantar Fasciitis, so I need to have a lot of arch support and can't wear anything too flat, or heels that are too high. I had custom orthotics made, but they are pretty bulky and won't fit in anything but sneakers (which I obviously can't wear to a job interview). Any suggestions? I've scoured the web (Lulu's, Earth Shoes, etc.), but most vegan shoes I find don't look very supportive, or are too casual. Thanks for any advice!
I LOVE Beyond Skin http://www.beyondskin.co.uk/. They are located in the UK but ship worldwide. Each of my orders has arrived well within a week from ordering. The shoes aren't cheap, but they are gorgeous and Beyond Skin is currently holding a 25% off sale on all shoes.
Hi Hally. For warmer weather I'd like to suggest Oka b's (the dressier line of Okabashi's). I have very wide feet and also do miles of walking and these shoes are just amazingly comfortable and durable (and very inexpensive). I've been wearing them for years (originally they looked like orthopedic shoes, but they've been totally redesigned) and my feet literally cry when I have to wear anything else. The 2" wedge heels are very comfortable/dressy for warm weather. www.shoesthatloveyou.com. (All styles are vegan.)
