I wear a moisture wicking sock and I don't get blister. Hanes are the one I wear and get them at Walmart. And I switch to a different shoe the next day. Never wear the same shoe two days in a row

Got to break them in but I love these sandals for a nice dinner. Not ideal for parks sadly (they don't do well in bad weather)

As I said they're for evening time!!
I didn’t catch that part. They DO look very nice. Good combination of comfort snd style. I was actually interested in buying them but I can’t swing that much. Appreciate you sharing though!!

CROCS!!! I cannot tell you how many times crocs have saved my feet. I normally start out in tennis shoes but I always end up wearing Crocs most of the time.

    Hoka One One sneakers. I have Achilles tendinitis, heel spurs and bunions, and they are by far the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever worn. I do wear Dr. Scholls gel heel cushions in them too, and it works out really well.
    I have the same problems as you, and I've never heard of those sneakers.
    Can I ask where you get them from? only online? Thanks:)

    Thank you, I'll give it a try. Do you know of any sandals that comfortable and would fit "our" type feet? I tried Keens and they don't fit my feet right at all. I would love to get some comfortable sandals for this summer.
    Unfortunately, I can’t really wear sandals because I put gelcups in the heels of my shoes, but Vionic are supposed to be pretty good, I think.

    Another vote for Tevas - I get the classic ones though for me. I just got the hurricanes for both my boys, my 5 year old is in love with his.

    However I also alternate - one day in tevas - one in sneakers. I also make sure to break them in ahead of time.

    I wear Crocs - right now the Bayaband Flip which is this years version of the original flip flop I've worn for the last few years. They are under $30 and I try to get them on sale around $20 so that I can get several colors. I'm 68 and about 150 pounds, which I think plays into whether the support is there for so much wandering around at the parks. One thing I've noticed is the sole construction on most of the favored shoes is similar. Since my choice is a flip flop I will mention that for me the less parts of my foot actually touching a shoe works best. This flip has a thicker sole than say Havianas, which I think are cuter, but I'll save them for shorter walks on the Boardwalk at the beaches.

    If you can afford and want to wear the Ferragamo in the parks, go for it! But - I'd probably carry them and change in time for dinner - I've done that with the heels and the little dress.

    And, funny thing - I can't tolerate the Disney crocs with the closed in top - they give me blisters.

    If I wear running shoes, it rains and they get ruined for the trip - in Disney's humidity they don't dry well, plus you know, the dirt that gets into them from just walking. I used to buy new running shoes for Disney and do the break in but still had blisters, no matter how much money I spent.

    I should mention I don't have foot problems in general, other than a couple of broken toes that do bother me at times, but not that much. And when I weighed more, walking was harder on my feet.

    Meanwhile, I have 3 new pairs of crocs ready to go next trip!

    And almost forgot, I also liked Tevas. Hadn't bought any in some time but checked out the website and they have some really cute colors.

    Crocs all day every day I don't care what my family says! I currently am walking around as much as possible at home and I got Ryka Skywalk and they are light weight and padded and my feet are less irritated. I have dry cracked feet and have been putting on foot repair as well as moisturizing daily and so far so good. I had awful pain on the last trip using Merrell's which are supportive but dont have much give or padding.
    Teva, all the way. Good support, lots of styles to pick from so you can get the best for you, and water just runs right out if they get wet (at least, the styles I picked do). Also, make sure whatever you wear is well broken in. The last thing you want with all that walking is to break in stiff shoes.
    Crocs sandals - all the comfort of regular crocs, but not so clownish looking.
    My favs are Clarks Breeze Flip Flops View attachment 571650

    I also have a pair of skechers flip flops I take View attachment 571651
    And a pair of skechers go walk sandals View attachment 571653
    And a pair of Earth Origins Skylar https://earthshoes.com/products/skylar-navy-blue-5-12-7207607wsde?variant=34765570932871
    Crocs sandals. TEVAs. Natives.
    I did the parks in 2019 in Sketchers Go walks flip flops and didn't get any blisters. Never felt like there was anything on my feet!
