I have wide feet too! I tried on sooooo many shoes and insoles today! The New Balance walking shoes I tried on yesterday were somewhat comfortable, but reallllly not cute! Not even close! Although they are online for around $50. They are a New Balance WW811 or 812.
The ones I found today at JC Penney blow those NB out of the water!!!!! I think I got them for about $60. My dad said to splurge the most on shoes. I was about to order these $100 Professional Timberland nursing shoes from Zappos until it dawned on me....when I am in school, I will only be in a clinical a couple/few times a week. When I get out in the real world (J-O-B) I will (hopefully) have a little more choice than "white, leather, non-fabric" in which case I will splurge on the best type, but also the best (cute) style for me! So for now, I'm sticking with these Easy Spirits. I have to go get the wide at another location tomorrow, but b/c I bought these today, she hooked me up with a 15% off coupon!
Also, for what it's worth, the shoe lady at Penney's thought they were ok, even w/ the slight grey line. I said I didn't know if they were hard-core about it, and she said she didn't think FSCJ was, but that at Mayo they are strict! LOL
In case anyone doesn't know, Zappos.com has free shipping and free returns. They have EXCELLENT ratings/reviews on most shoes.
