Yeah, I know a store in my area that sells wide shoes. I was hoping to hear about the easy online method of shopping. If Sketchers are likely to work, I'll try them. There are free returns for them on Amazon. So, no real interest in trips down the 401, but thanks for the suggestion.

Me.

I wear a 10D. Really. And I have corns and an extra bone each in two of my toes. We have a Sketchers outlet In the outlet mall, and since I discovered them, I haven't bought anything else. They are THAT comfortable with all my foot issues.

I'll tell ya, I love all my Sketcher's as I have foot problems too, but this newest pair I just got is the cream of the crop! I'm going to get more colors.
Souschef is groaning as he recently took dozens of my old shoes to the thrift store. LOL

Thanks for all the feed back on the Sketchers. I will probably buy a pair and see how I like them, especially since Amazon.ca says that returns are free.

I just got another shipment from Amazon. This is a public service announcement...
If you are wanting some new sneakers...these are the most comfortable shoes I've ever put on my feet!! I paid $60 through Amazon. They also make them for men.

There is a cobbler in Quebec City who makes custom-fit leather shoes. I can't find his business card--the shoes are pricey, but comfy. I don't have bunions, thank goodness, but my Mom has horrible bunions. Buying shoes was always a challenge for her. Now she just wears socks. Narrow, narrow foot and heel, but the bunions were always an issue. She spent a lot of money on her shoes as I recall. Spend the money, your feet are worth it.

In some ways I agree with you CWS but on the other hand for me, my feet change so quickly between neuropathy and arthritis I simply can't afford to change shoes that often.

One of the reasons I like the Crocs so much is I can cut out toe areas and or cut/stretch them where needed.

We are waiting for the repair guys. They are supposed to paint in our basement. This is being arranged by our insurance. It's because the basement got flooded by our water heater in January. I am getting awfully tired of waiting.

For the past month or so, I have been lamenting how crammed full our upright freezer is. So I have been consciously trying to use foods in the freezer so I could empty it out some.

I have been planning to make chicken stock but didn't think I had enough bones in the freezer. SO insisted I had a ton of bones.

Well, I decided today was the day so I scavenged both freezers for chicken bones. I filled my 20-quart stock pot to the brim!

As a result, the house has a wonderful aroma of simmering chicken stock and I have tons of room in the freezer!

As a side "benefit", SO got to say, "I told you so.".
