Today Jennifer and I are joining our friends Annie and Mary Ann for our Monthly Style Edit. We are talking about comfortable shoes that are fashion-forward and stylish. I know a tall order for sure. Let’s take a look at my picks for The Best Comfortable Sneakers for Women over 50.
As we get older, our feet change and sometimes get wider. It gets harder and harder to wear uncomfortable shoes. I was never a heel girl (too clumsy) but I have always loved shoes. With the onset of my 60’s I gained some unflattering foot issues (ie bunions). Hence finding shoes that don’t kill my feet and are stylish is a challenge. Here I am wearing Chuck Taylor’s two years ago. These somehow appear on many of the lists for comfortable shoes. I love them but they are not comfortable, I wouldn’t last 30 minutes in them now. Geez I was a lot thinner in this picture (note to self drop 5 lbs)
The good news is I found a replacement (they did not arrive in time), the Taos Women’s Star Sneaker. It has that casual old-school vibe but they are comfy, come in wide widths, and in every color of the rainbow including red.
Without a doubt, the most comfortable sneak (although maybe not the prettiest) is the Skechers Go Walk. I have these in black. I still wear them on the airplane and for travel, they are just so comfortable. They now have them in gray which are a little more stylish looking.
My current favorites, walking, working out (gardening) sneakers are the New Balance Fresh Foam Sport Lightweight Running Shoe (they are lightweight, with plenty of support, and the mesh top accommodates my bunion), and
I like having a lighter color shoe to go with my workout/at the computer outfits.
These are super comfortable, would be great for travel, easily cleaned, and well worth the money. They come in almost every color in the rainbow. I am going to order the latte this year. This “dress” is no longer available. It was originally from H&M but I have linked similar below.
A couple of other slip-ons that come in wide are on my radar. The Dr. Scholl’s Madison
And the Naturalizer Aileen (also comes in wide) If you have a bunion you know what I am talking about! As you can see these two are nearly identical. I am going to order both from Zappos and give them a shot!
Also on my list is the highly recommended super casual Sanuk Pair o Dice canvas slip-on. I get blisters easily so this one is appealing to me because of the soft back.
Last but not least is the much-loved Cariuma sneaker you have seen me feature in many of my outfits of the week. Again, I have not tried this one but I would like to. It doesn’t come in a wide which is the only thing that is holding me back. Love the red. It too comes in numerous colors.
Comfortable sneakers have come a long way. If you have plantar fascitis or any multitude of problems, reviews say the Ikebukuro is the only sneak they can wear. They are pricey, so I left them off my list. I have heard nothing but good things about them as well.
