    Jilly--Thanks for the outlet link. I'll have to check it out. Although I stopped by a shoe store near my house yesterday, and found a pair that I may go back and buy tonight. I want a black pair to wear for everyday use.

    Jen are they comfortable? To me they don't look like they would be. I just wear tennis shoes, DMX walkers.

    renerian, I haven't seen them in person yet -- I just found them online, lol! I'll let you know what I think when I get them, which will be pretty soon.

    renerian--A bunch of people I used to wait tables swore by them. I tried some on last night, going back today to buy them. I had to take a day to 'think it over' as $90-$100 for a pair of shoes is a lot for me. I personally think they look cool, and the during the 5 minutes I had them on in the store, they seemed comfortable. But, time will tell!!

    You really can't, bewbew? I studied for a semester in Northern Queensland, and I picked up some really cool boots. Don't remember what they were called either...guess I have a problem remembering shoes! But I want to say....Blundies? Something like that. Anyway, I loved Australia.

    Anyone know what I'm talking about?
    Mel, I have those cool shoes and they are really comfortable.

    WOW! Lucky you, Mel, to study up in North Queensland, I've not been up there yet! What uni were you going through there?

    'Blunnies', or 'Blundstones' are what you're thinking off, yes, they are great, but my feet no longer like them since having babies....

    I spose I'll have to get on the phone, ring the major stores, see if they can get hold of a pair.......if I were to buy them from a U.S site, it would end up being very costly, as the Aussie $ doen't convert well to the U.S. $

    LOL I have always loved my blundstones, but somehow don't think they are gonna look good with my uniform hehehe

    Mel, were you at James Cook Uni?

    I too am looking for a new pair of shoes but clogs aren't my style. Looking for an nice comfy court shoe sorta style.

    I have fallen arches and my feet KILL after an 8 hour day, I can't imagine when I start to do 12's!

    I was wondering about Dansko clogs or Birkenstocks as well!

    Anyone else have bad arches and what works for them?

    I'm wearing sneaks now.

    bew and aus nurse, I was studying through an American program called the School for Field studies. I was an environmental science major, and we did reforestation work up in the Rainforest in the Atherton Tablelands up about 50 k west of Cairns. The closest town was called Yungaburra, if I recall correctly. Absolutely beautiful!!!! The people were fantastic, and the scenery was magnificent. I also did some travelling during my break-went to Magnetic Island and Sydney. Saw crocs, roos, and koalas. And LOTS of cane toads!! And leeches too.....lol
