The Shoe Expert:

“Those Shoes are SO expensive!” Thursdays is a feature that I am thinking of bringing back!

Originally posted on The Shoe Expert's Blog:

As a foot doctor and shoe expert, I’ve been asked by many people if more expensive shoes are better than cheaper versions. Well, sometimes, but not always.

It depends on several factors, including the materials used, talented designers, manufacturing costs, research efforts, etc. The main idea is quality. A good quality shoe is usually more expensive and usually more comfortable and therefore “better.” But sometimes you are paying extra just for the name brand. The only way for YOU to tell for sure is for YOU to go try them on, walk around in them, and see for yourself which ones feel better on your foot. Not every shoe is made for every foot type. With shoes, as with patients, it depends on a lot of things.

But just for fun, let’s take a look at some really expensive shoes that we wouldn’t mind owning!
