I need help choosing a cute pair of shoes. I have dress shoes. I have casually nice shoes. I need sneaks since my current pair should really be tossed at this point. (they are worn and now they hurt - not good for fibro feet)

I wear a size 12 Women or a 10/10.5 Men shoe. (I'm just shy of 6' tall) So finding shoes is hard enough, but I am also clueless as to good colors/styles.

So far, thanks to my other thread, I am looking at:

Puma lo in brown: http://piperlime.gap.com/browse/prod...21105&cid=4016

Puma hi in a grey print: http://piperlime.gap.com/browse/prod...scid=674632002

Converse in a purple plaid: http://piperlime.gap.com/browse/prod...1100&cid=19885

Simple (recycled shoes) in black: http://piperlime.gap.com/browse/prod...scid=620272012

I can get 1-2 pairs. Can you help me, pretty please?

The converse, definitely! They're very stylish! And the recycled ones, just because that's fun.

I love new shoes!!

I agree with the Simple and the Converse, Both are comfy, cute, and last forever.

The first and last sneaks. I'm not big on patterned sneaks for grownups.

So I did my required errands today and then checked out the shoe outlet that I usually avoid because it is just depressing to see tons of shoes at decent prices I cannot wear due to my size. AND! They had Converse Chucks. So I tried some on and OMG. Comfort!

So I now own and have on a grey hi pair: http://tweetphoto.com/11068801 (perfect to go under jeans since I wear jeans a good 9 months of the year!) and I also snagged a lo black pair.
