Not long ago I had a terrible pain in my right heel. I could hardly walk on it. After a few days I went to see a podiatrist. He gave my pain a long name, longer than “heel spur,” a shot in the heel, and then a lecture. He said, “Women are ruining their feet with these hard-soled shoes. You should have two pair of tennis shoes. On Monday, Wednesday and Friday, you should wear one pair, and Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, you should wear the other pair. On Sunday, wear what you like.” He added that we need to get new shoes about every six months.
My favorite shoe is the Hush Puppie Bounce tennis shoe. I walk with a “bounce in my step.”
