Sitting Boots

For the past 30 years or so I have been wearing “sensible” shoes. I severely injured my right ankle when I was 16, and, despite a complicated surgery, the ankle has never completely healed. I therefore have worn mainly flats, which I can handle. I definitely make sure that the flats I choose are fashionable (and at the same time provide support and are comfortable).

But recently I have been drawn to some not-so-sensible shoes  - boots with a heel. In fact, in the course of a few weeks, I bought two pairs of boots with quite a heel. Both heels are block heels and sturdy, but they are still much higher than my ankle can handle for a long time.

I have therefore called my new boots “sitting boots.” Now, they are not truly “sitting boots” as I can manage to walk in them and be comfortable for about an hour. And I can tolerate a second hour, but after that it gets difficult. So basically the boots are going-out-to-dinner (or going-out-and-don’t-walk-a-lot) boots. I’m hopeful that my ankle, which hasn’t had to deal with any kind of heel for 30 years, is going to get used to the heel little by little…

Questions: Do you own “sitting shoes?” If so, do you own more “sensible” shoes or more “sitting” or “going-out-to-dinner” shoes?
