Well for those long term viewers and odd followers of my quirky ways, you may remember that I bought a pair of shoes over the internet a couple of years ago.
What I was too embarased to mention was that after recieving them in the mail they were too small. I have suffered painful feel for 2 years and have finally given up on these..dare I say…$250 paid of quality walking shoes.
With some of Mr Rudd’s generous $900 I went off to my favorite shop Mtn Designs last Saturday and picked up a pair of Salomon’s for the bargain price of $200. Heck I turned down the pair of Raichle’s I tried on for $275!!
I wore these nice shoes for a couple of hours before deciding to return them as they were too small. I took them back today and tried on a slightly larger pair of the Keen (the ones I bought on the internet) they were nice, but heck I like a change –
I ended up with the next size up of the ones I had bought Saturday. The Salomon Elios GTX.
Tonight my feet are killing me – I will push through! This weekend I have to walk over 40Km in these new shoes hmmm

I’m renowned for my ability to diagnose the most complex problems without ever having seen the evidence with my own eyes – and the same is true of your problem tonight.
The shoes are not the problem – its the walking! If you WEAR the shoes, but (and this is an important point), NOT WALK IN THEM, then your problems will go away, and as a bonus you can get many years additional(although admittedly sedentary) enjoyment from your footwear.
Bugga! Where were you when I needed you??
Good to hear from you.
I don’t think the problem is the shoes or the walking. You obviously need smaller feet.
You’ll love the GTX. I bought a pair on Ebay for $10 and they have been the best walking shoes ever!!
I hope you’ll journeying well Scott. Salaam.
Thanks mate. Bold move buying shoes online I will never do it again me thinks. Unless I am buying an identical pair to what I already had.
