I am hunting for replacement mules for my Haflingers which are, after years of use, falling apart. My main foot problem is swelling through the day, closely followed by needing an easy fit because carers seem ludicrously unable to manage anything that isn’t!
I’d be happy to simply buy another pair of the Haflingers but, for some bizarre reason, they no longer do the style I wear in black. Why on earth would they not do black? It’s beyond my comprehension but very hard to believe there is no demand for it.
Searching, I came across The Future Perfect Company’s blog: Is this the definitive list of stylish yet comfortable women’s shoes. OK, I don’t find them all stylish but, it’s a good place to start and, if you work through it, you may find something that works for you.
I quite like the black Fitflop mules pictured above and they would be a close replacement for my Haflingers but when you are still yearning for the Robert Clergerie’s you used to wear – as I am, see below – I still feel I’m not quite achieving the style that I wish I were still accustomed to.
There are huge numbers of us with foot problems and so few places, it seems, that sell good-looking footwear. The made-to-measure option is, in my experience, astronomically expensive and I cannot help but think there must be other options out there. Are you able to fill in this knowledge-gap for me? Please let me know of any other sources or solutions that you have found to the problem of stylish footwear for awkward feet?
