all right...i will make this quick. shoes...you want comfort and enough style you can get into clubs, right? i asked some people at a shoe store and they recomended Doc Martin's. now, they are not my first choice, but they are spose to be comfortable as hell, so, my question is, i live in the US and am flying inot london be4 i comtinue my travels elsewhere in W. Europe, so, do if i go the doc route, do i wait n get them in England(where I think they are made) of do i buy them here in the US? where would it be cheaper? Any1 with any experience on this? THANX!!

I would not want to wear my docs 24/7. especially without breaking them in first.

I wore a pair of new balance all terrain shoes. they were as comfy on day 30 as they were on day 1.

docs aren't made in england anymore and they're actually more expensive than in the US.

Um Hey,
Doc's break in period can be rough, but as a victim of fashion i cant live without em. Its all i wear (6 pair). 6 eyes are the easier to break, may i recommend liquid or gel insoles? Thanks. Dont let my Doc patronage bother you, their probably not as practical as the NB all terrains.

Yours

R.R.

I had a similar kind of problem, and I bought some good Born shoes. http://www.bornshoes.com/ I very very very highly recommend them. I just have some black leather loafers, but very comfortable and very durable. Thinking about some nice ballet slippers too before I leave. I cannot stress how incredibly comfortable these shoes are.
