A couple of weeks ago I bought this pair of Waldies for Teddy from their on-line store. Teddy already had a pair of knock-offs that she got last year at Wal-Mart and had been raving about how comfortable they were so I decided to get her a pair of the Waldie originals. You have a choice of 16 colors; I chose this color which they call mango, I call it orange.
Well, she liked them so much that I decided to get a pair for myself. This time in "blueberry". I'm gobsmacked...they are about the most comfortable shoes that I've ever worn. I can wear them in water, with or without socks, and I don't have to bend over to tie them. They're the only shoe that I'll ever need; I don't intend to ever walk in snow again (they might be a little cold for that) and if I have to wear a suit or tux, I'll just get a pair in black. I don't think that they put shoes on you in your casket but if they do...my Waldies will do just fine!
