In a slightly unexpected twist for Shop Talk we draw attention to a shoe that is…..comfortable. Yes, it’s unorthodox, but let’s explore a bit. The Walking Company offers the ABEO line of shoes specializing in footwear made for moving.

The company offered me a free foot scan and pair of sandles to briefly lure me out of my high heels and boots for a moment and out of curiosity I accepted. After I stood on what looked like a scale to get a digital reading of my “super high arches” and had an associate show me a selection of shoes geared to my particular foot issues, I settled on the Lauguna sandal.

While admittedly not my go to shoe for a fashion show or anything fancy, when thrown on with cuffed jeans it’s kind of cute. And most importantly, for the summer city walkers it’s like a little vacation for the feet. Yes, it might be geared a little bit more to your mom, but what’s wrong with that? You’ve got a present in your back pocket for her now.
