Using the premise, a happy Cruiser is a healthy Cruiser, I'm starting this off on the subject of foot care. We are both diabetics, and understand the importance of comfortable, supportive footware and foot health in general.

Just talking about pedicures over on the main 4/19/15 NCL Dawn Roll Call, figured I'd move this line of thinking over here-thank you Margaret & Steve!
Not an hour after posting about cruise ship style pedicures, Himself bounds in, big silly grin on his feet, after grocery shopping.

"Guess what I got?"

"I dunno. A personal watermelon on sale?"

"Yeah, I found one, but it wasn't on sale. No, I got a really great pedicure, only $17 for everything. Such a good job I left a $3 tip, so just $20. Wow, I feel great!"

That makes it a bargain. We don't use a Podiatrist, but RR-the big burly ex-football player/ex-trucker- swears that his pedicures nip any potential ingrown toenails in the bud, take care of dead skin, improve circulation and aren't frivolous, girly men stuff at all. Proof's in the pudding:

Somehow, over the years, these hoofs have gone from a respectable 8 1/2 B to a 9 1/2 WW Now, after the knee injury and with the quad cane, and for longer distances, the wheelchair, I am all about the comfort.

And traveling means solid but lightweight comfort. Easy on and off at airport security checkpoints, breathable shoes that don't require much upkeep. Here are a few that usually make their way onto my feet or into the suitcase:

Partial to Mary Janes, these cute Crocs Candace models come in Pearl, Fushia, Turquoise, Brown and Basic Black...weight just a couple ounces, and actually do float in water. Rinse off very easily, too.



Shoes can also be conversation starters. My favorite Crocs were faux sneakers complete with laces and toe caps...generally they only make the really cute ones for kids, but these Hamburger models are still pretty cool:



I like to wear a lot of blue-green-purple 'cool' shades in my clothing, and at least one pair of shoes in the purple family is practically a must. Easy Spirit makes this Traveltime line of slip on sneaks in dozens of colors and patterns, but this basic model is lightweight, easy on and off and super comfy. At times my feet puff up terribly from flying as well as more salt than we'd be using at home...ES clogs have saved me in times nothing else would fit.



Here is a darling little boat-shoe style, comes in white, navy, practical beige and my favorite, denim blue. Same great features as regular Traveltime, with sizes, including half sizes, from 5 to 11, widths N, M, W, WW. It's also nice that the website frequently runs sales of 25% off or more. Made in the USA.



Now I'm curious to know about the type of footwear you travel with...photos too!

Those are cute! I haven't seen them before!

The hamburger Crocs have me ROFLMBO!!!!


Me - I USED to wear these all the time, but then I started twisting my ankles too often - but they DID get rid of my plantar fasciaitis!



NOW I wear these a LOT! I have a bunch of the color variations of these!



I also have these Crocs in brown and black (the circle design is gone but they have similar styles now)

Wow, I'm sorry to hear that Annemarie. The first time I blew out an ACL, I was fourteen (rollerskating rink). My new stepmother decided I must be faking so it was never treated and I still had to climb the stairs and do daily chores...ugh!
~~~~~~~~
I was hospitalized July 2010 with severe chest pain...it happened at work. About midnight. House supervisor flew me down to the ER, EKG and tons of testing, admitted 6 hours later. I must have really looked haggard, because the admitting nurse asked if Richard was my son!

5 days of testing, IVs including Levaquin since I am allergic to penicillin.
Powerful stuff, has a warning label, called the black box warning, not to use for people 60 and older due to spontaneous tendon ruptures associated with it. I would not turn 60 until the following month so the didn't mention it.

I left the hospital only after promising to take same medicine by mouth. The second day I decided to try a short walk around the neighborhood. Did a couple blocks and my right knee became very unstable, scary wobbly. As an RN I knew it was probably the Levaquin. Stopped taking it immediately.

Problem is, the effects can progress as much as 100 days after you stop taking it. Basically destroyed at least 80 to 90% of the patellar tendon. ACL already shot on both legs, so not much keeping thigh and leg bones where they belong.

Would have lost it completely if I didn't read the full package insert on the pills when I got them. A very dangerous drug, one I'd taken for respiratory and urinary problems at least a dozen times before. Cipro is very similiar. I couldn't get up from a sitting position for 3-4 months, then only with help and climbing the ramp to work (down the ramp even worse) was a real trial.

Thank goodness I found the perfect knee brace. Now the wheelchair and wheeled walker are stowed in the garage. Quad cane works well but still can't stand for more than 1-2 minutes alone, or walk more than 1 or 2 blocks. WC for airport, ship and if distance from ship to taxi/van transport too far then guess who has to push my carcass about?

I have a big lump several inches below my knee where some spontaneous repair of the tendon has occurred. Never saw a specialist, saw no need for surgery-after researching extensively, and slowly but surely some improvement after about 6 months. Losing the 30 pounds recently will help but I also have the (progressive) type of COPD that Lenard Nimoy had, so I might be on oxygen when not using BIPAP at night, and probably be napping when others are active about ship.

I haven't given up though, still have brain and sense of humor and desire to travel, explore, see new things and meet new people. Life is Good.

For me, it was the combination of the slight wedge and the soft sole.
Nothing else had changed during that time, so I have to give the shoes the credit.
I just wish my ankles were stronger. I did well with them for quite a while and then I just started going down all the time (didn't always go down, but got the ankle twist and that hurts no matter if you fall or not!)

I just have to remember to not wear my Crocs out - when they lose their tread they become slicker than snot on glass if you hit wet spots.

I've fallen in love with shoes by a Walking Cradles. They are super comfy.
I'm buying these sandals today.
I like them because they are adjustable at the toe and upper part which gives me room for summer foot swelling and the footbed really cradles your foot.
Reg. Price $90.00 6pm Price $44.00 free shipping!

Don't know if anyone is familiar with the site called 6pm dot com. Lots of nice designer shoes at bargain prices. I learned about it on CC Roll Call years ago and have been shopping there ever since. The have all sizes and widths.

I, too, love the Easy Spirit Traveltine. I wear those with most of my long pants.

I also wear Avia sport shoes with jeans. Avia has the kind of heel (cantilever) where the heel of the shoe is higher on the sides and low in the middle, so that the middle of your actual heel does not touch the ground. This is great for those with heel spurs.

Also, you mentioned diabetes. When get to Medicare age, Medicare will pay for one pair of special shoes and 3 sets of custom insoles per year. There are contracted suppliers that you must use but it is a great benefit.

Wow, what cute shoes...and comfy and such a steal Will have to check out that website...thanks for the mention!

BTW: I love these strappy platform peep toe sandals that Easy Spirit also makes, especially in this pewter color, such a cool neutral. With the 1" platform, it makes the 3" heel only 'feel' like 2 inches...maybe I could wear these in another, um, 50 pounds or so?


Eh, and maybe not that realistic for a ship that might be rockin' n' rollin' about...

...so I guess these-same company- are more my speed:

Yeah, take a look. I believe I've seen some styles you have mention by Easy Spirit, TravelTime.

Unfortunately, I'm limited in what I can wear due to my back. Two inch heels is pushing it for me, but I do like you said looking at the platform to see if it's really a 1 1/2 inch heel. If the heal in wide I do better, but if it's narrow I can't wear a 1 1/2 for too long so I try to carry around a ballerina flat to change in.

Comfort is a big plus for me as well and another thing that's big on me beside my bottom are my feet which I have a hard time dressing them up in pretty dainty foot wear and have lately, over the years, found myself having to compete with the tranny's for the best looking ones being that there are very few in stock. I wear a size 13 narrow or medium women shoe depending on the cut. Doesn't look too bad with my 5'10 frame.
But I'm glad for 6pm dot com that they carry my size. It's slim pickings but the prices are awesome.

Oh gosh, I just caught this. Too funny, so true.

http://www.onestopplus.com/clothing/...0#.VPdthqQtHX4

I've found over a hundred styles with some decent sales here. This pair of Trotters, for example is 51% off and there is a $10 coupon available (top of the page for code). I see a few colors are available in 13 N/M. The 1 1/2" Cuban heel is nice and steady, unlike my former rock star day platforms...Funkadelic to the max

Well, that is good we will have something to look forward to...65 is less than 6 months away I have flat, wide feet (nurses' syndrome), and have no idea what sort of tennis shoes I should be wearing but I veer toward Propet and Clarks if not my tried and true brands above.

Here the best travel shoe I have found for Richard who also has big, wide, but not flat feet. As long as I don't buy him dark colors or toes that pinch he is fine, and these are sturdy, lightweight, easy on/off, easy care and even a mite stylish... BTW: I wish he would wear low boots, the type that zipper up the side, but he said it reminds him of his Dad...just like Old Spice. Hey! I like OS

Oh, I have that style shoe, but mine are by RosHommerson instead of Trotter.

I was wondering when you were going to get it. Lol. and it is so true. (I mean no offense to anyone, but that's one of the "realities" of my life.)

Those glittery 70's shoes are wild! Yes, P-funk Era! image.jpg

Thanks, that's good value, and especially when they have sales on top of the discounts...my kinda deal And boy, are you ever right about those Crocs becoming slippery when the tread wears off the bottoms...slipping and sliding and not a bit of fun.

In St. Louis, when we were taking the Busch Brewery Tour, the guide made a point of separating out the tourists wearing Crocs, and took us on a different route which didn't involve riding any escalators. Said there had been some bad accidents involving people wearing Crocs

it seems that if you get your feet to close to the edge the escalators CAN "eat" the shoe.

Here's an article about it - but, to me, the key is in this sentence:

"It's not just Crocs that pose a danger -- any soft, pliable shoe, even flip-flops, can be dangerous on an escalator. "
