I'm at the point in my life where comfort is the most important thing in my footwear. I'll gladly pay a premium price for shoes that support my flat foot and keep them from having pain. Hiking and running puts a lot strain on my feet. I'm constantly battling heel spurs and achilles tendon pain. I know I will never find a pair of shoes that will cure my problems but I'm always on the lookout for shoes that will keep my pain from getting worse.
I've heard of hotter® Shoes and have wanted to try them ever since. Usually red is not my first choice for shoe color but I'm getting tired of the dreary dark days of winter and decided to go bold now that spring is inching closer. Plus with the many shirts I own that go with red shoes, I chose colorful instead of the safe browns and blacks I usually wear. The Nirvana Style looks stylish. I rarely receive compliments on my shoes but every time I've worn these I've received a compliment. My sisters all want a pair. They look great with pants and are perfect for everyday wear.
As much as I like the way my Nirvana hotter® Shoes look, I like the way they feel even more. They are lightweight and breathable for hot days. Best of all, they are comfortable enough to wear all day and never hurt my feet even when I do a lot of walking. The only drawback I had was with the sizing. I was sent a half size too big. I would not recommend sizing up as the hotter® Shoes seem true to size. The half size up was too much for me which means they slip off when I walk fast. However, the company does offer free returns so I'm sure there wouldn't be a problem returning a pair and exchanging them for another size.
At first I wasn't sure I would be willing to spend the money on the Nirvana shoes but after trying a pair, I would buy another style and color. With the company offering plenty of sales and free shipping, the shoes don't end up being more expensive than they are worth. Like I said before, I don't mind paying a premium price for shoes if they are comfortable and hotter® Shoes offer plenty of comfort that makes them worth the price. I'm impressed that the company is the UK's biggest shoe manufacturer and I think they have well thought out designs that are truly more comfortable and flexible than the shoes I own made in Asia.
I've already got my sights set for the blue Shake Shoes.
