The reason to be there was to find a jacket for my older daughter ,who was pestering us to get one all weekend . But we left there with a pair of Uggs for my younger daughter and the promise to have shoes delivered for my older daughter. Along with the shoes they bought they both got inserts to go into their sneakers and for my older daughter a pair of dress inserts for her new shoes. She selected a style that they were out of, so that's why the delivery was necessary.
Where did they find the shoes? It was not your usual shoe store at all. It is called The Walking Company, and if you have ever wanted to find stylish shoes for feet that are a little unusual with style and pizzaz, you must go there.
How we found it was we were at another shoe store one level underneath it and couldn't find any shoes for my older daughter. I think I mentioned once that the thing I dreaded most was going shoe shopping with her. OMG it usually takes around two or three hours and she tries on every shoe in her size in the store. Usually she takes the ones that hurt her the least.:) She has a flat foot that is also a little wider, so it's always excruciating trying to find her shoes. But The Walking Company was like going into shoe heaven for her and for my younger daughter, who has two different sized feet, also found a solution for her shoe problems.
Here is what they do. When you first come into the store they ask you to stand on a mat and then you see your feet and the areas of pressure on each foot. They give you a print-out with the diagram of your foot. The red areas are the pressure points and also it gives a suggestion for the insert you need to use. The girl who waited on us was very knowledgeable and very helpful. She was so patient and continued to look for shoes that would be good for my older daughter. You need to use a different insert for dress shoes than sports/casual shoes. My older daughter put the inserts into her sneakers and she said she felt so much better and it even made her look a little taller.:) My younger daughter also got the inserts that made her old shoes feel better and she got a great pair of Uggs. I didn't get anything, but I was drooling for a pair of black suede clogs with a flower on the side of the front of each shoe. You can see it in gray, but I loved it in black. I will be going back to see those shoes.:)
