What kind of shoes do you wear?

while pregnant? Might be a silly question but I need to go shoe shooping this weekend and i don't really care how much I spend, I just need a comfy pair of shoes to wear. I don't even care what they look like at this point.

I have been having alot of hip issues and been seeing the chiropractor and he tells me to avoid flip flops this summer because of it! (boo!)
I am going to Vegas in a month and I know there will be alot of walking around so I was thinking of a good pair of tennis shoes, but would really like some summer shoes with an arch support.
Anyone have a comfy pair of shoes that they love?

Thanks in Advance!

I wear flats all the time. My personal favorite is the Me Too brand. I have three pairs of them and I swear it feels like you are walking on clouds. You can order them at zappos.com

I'm no help. I live in flip flops or my Nike's. I do wear nicer flip flops like Reefs or Tevas. I don't wear ones like the old navy flip flops. They hurt my feet. I would think that a nice pair of flats would be good. Ones with plenty of support. Happy shopping!

I'm no help either once the nice weather is here I wear flip flops every day. Have a blast in Vegas. I met my DH there and had my eldest DD there, lots of good memories Smile

I would get a good pair of tennis shoes if walking a ton. Flats don't have enough support for me. In the winter I wear Dansko but they are too hot for the summer.

Sorry ~ I can't offer much on the shoe department...I live in heels and wedges. Flats make my lower back hurt to the point where I can't walk. Not sure what I'm going to do once I can't bend over to buckle some of them anymore...guess thats what DH is for. Smile

If you want a great pair of flip flops, check out the Chaco brand. They are a bit pricey but worth every penny!!! Also, Clarks brand shoes have wonderful support.

Both of these shoe brands were recommended by the chiropractors that I worked for in my working life. I personally own both but mostly live in the Chacos during the summer. They have wonderful arch support. Their website explains more. I try to watch the clearance section at online stores like backcountry.com to get them cheaper. But they are well worth the price!!!

I live in sandals and flats all summer. For my work shoes, I slip in gel insoles so that my feet aren't killing me at the end of the day.

SO jeaous you can all wear flip flops and my feet will have none of it!!!!

I went to the outlet mall last night and found some white NB shoes I liked. Kinda like the sketchers. They arn't great to wear with a dress though, so I might try to find some better flip flops. I saw some nike memory foam ones that looked comfy, might try those!
I'll also look at some of the brands that you ladies mentioned.

Thank you for all your help!

NB are really good sneakers, but if you want to find good shoes that are also really nice - get Teva-Naot. http://www.naot.com/ to find a retailer. i have at least 5 different pairs of Naots from shoes, to sandals, to clogs - I even wear them to weddings! They are so supportive and comfy and they have really nice styles. (no I don't work for them!!)
