Continued thanks guys!

I have a few practically brand new shoes that I haven't worn, but I've held onto for too long to return, so I've wasted some money unfortunately. I guess I'll spend good money on INSOLES, donate them, OR would a pawn shop take them? I'll see if I want the hassles of selling them online.

These didn't work out for me, but insoles won't help w/ these:

BOBS from Skechers Women's Pureflex Spring Forward...too sloppy-looking on my foot:
https://www.amazon.com/Skechers-Wome...00EU872H2?th=1

Sam Edelman 'Galina' Crystal Embellished Sandal...no cushioning at all:
https://shop.nordstrom.com/s/sam-ede...-women/4029279


I even ordered an Earth brand sneaker that wasn't nearly as comfortable as I thought, but some Earth brand boots of mine are good.

And I wore some supposedly pricey, comfortable Hush Puppies brand shoes on a trip & my feet were killing me after not that much walking! I like Naturalizer better.

I have a few others that I don't really wear either.

Maybe you could donate them to a charity, worth a try.

I have had Achilles surgery. I love the following orthopedic shoes:

Propet W0089 Pedi Walker Sandal (okay so I saw these on someone at a nursing home when I was visiting someone and looked them up) - these are the most basic but sturdy, shaped for the foot, super support - ultra comfortable and if your pants cover the top, they look decent (I have received compliments on them - have them in black, brown and a light color).

Propet Winnie Sandal (actually kind of cute)
Propet Breeze Walker (for hot weather)

Super support and comfort - I don't do the other Propet shoes because they are too thick and cobble like but the sandals are awesome.

You can look them up on Amazon or discount stores.

The Propet shoes I mentioned have a solid heel - the Winnie and Breeze Walker have secure straps on the heel.

If you have any consignment shops in the area they would probably take them. At least you'll make a few bucks off of them!

Thanks again guys!

Navyshow, never heard of this brand, thanks. I'll look at them. I'm sure you know, but Propet has an official site, but you can't actually buy on there...only see the styles/colors, etc.

I'm mainly looking for casual/lifestyle styles, not really sneakers, although you can mention those too.
All of these brands make good quality, comfortable shoes that offer good support. They are durable in all types of weather.

Finn Comfort
Trippen
Naot

I am pretty active - run a lot and work out - but I love these shoes because of their support. Thanks for the link to the shoes. I see they have new sandal styles out. I will have to get some new ones this spring.

Continued thanks! So far, I got 2 pairs of Skechers, but I plan to get at least 1-2 more pairs of other brands. One of them I got because a 'Buy 1 pair, get the 2nd for 1/2 off' sale was going on & the other (below) I got on sale too & this new style seems to be the Skechers w/ THE MOST cushioning:

Thanks a lot. I've heard of all, except Trippen, so I'll check them out & see what the other 2 brands have these days.
