    I love the purple/blue-ish ones with the flower stone ribbon tie at the ankle, but their web page doesn’t list who the designer is- do you have any idea?? or and idea of how I could find out? I’ve emailed the webpage too.

  2. Hi Michelle,

    Thanks for mentioning our site in your December post about shoe sales. Signing up for your newsletter and would love to get to know you. You’ve got a great site. Looking forward to reading more of your posts!

  3. Dr. Michelle,

    In your opinion, what is the best orthotic to put in a high or low heeled pump? My daughter and I both need orthotics to wear in our shoes and finding one that doesn’t slip or push our feet up too much has been a issue.



    • Hi Jessica, do you have a podiatrist? The best orthotic for pumps is a custom made orthotic by a podiatrist that is made for heels. I have one for high heels, one for flats, and one for athletic shoes. They are all custom made and all look different. The ones that are sold in the stores don’t work as well, and the reason they’re sliding is because they aren’t custom made to your foot. I hope that helps! I’d love to make them for you if you’re in Southern California. 🙂

  4. This is our online store for newest leather boots collection.


  5. Thanks for the feedback. We just may have to get them made for us, then. I wish you could make them for us too, but we’re on the other side of the country 😦

  6. We have a little shoe store in Colorado in the Roaring Fork Valley between Aspen and Glenwood Springs. Comfort shoes are our speciality. Come visit us if you are ever in the Aspen area. We love your site!

    Our store address is http://www.mountainsolesshoes.com/servlet/StoreFront

  7. So this is a question not a comment…
    I was given a pair of Badgley Mischka Shaina Vero Cuoio shoes in Champagne..
    I Cant find any duplicates or information anywhere on the web about them and I want to sell them for a good price, any ideas where to go to do this?

  8. Dr. Michele, I think your blog is fantastic! Looking forward to hearing more from you. Enjoy your weekend

  9. I’m so glad I found you! I have been searching all over the internet for answers to my questions. I have collapsed arches, planter fasciitis, and heel bursitis (army). I want nice shoes but I don’t know where to find any that can accommodate my foot issues, any advice? Also, if I want to purchase flats or riding boots that can house my orthotics what should I do? Do I get them in wide (narrow feet, long toes), or do I order them in a size bigger? Thank you so much!
