My Worishofers arrived on the same day as Quinn and that makes them feel extra special. They are somewhere between 70s mum fashion and Granny-geek-chic. In fact, I am pretty sure my Grandma rocked this tasty pair:
Not through choice you understand: Worishofers, you see, are much loved for their orthopaedic benefits. They are the ultimate in sensible shoe, long embraced by the bunion afflicted of Europe.
Worishofers are caliper-chic, they are good for you like liver or whole-grain or taking the stairs. You can feel good about your choices when you’re wearing Worishofers.
Mine get away with all of this sensibleness because they are red* and so they have this playful, retro glow. I love the way that they look, especially the slightly wedged heel and what really takes the biscuit is that their secret orthopaedic history means that they are spectacularly comfortable. All of the benefits with none of the beige.
* This rule does not apply to every item of therapeutic apparel. Contrary to the opinion of my dentist during my teenage years, making my braces neon did not make the experience more fun.
