Monday Musing: Shoes for San Diego Comic Con

Shoes for San Diego Comic Con
Monday Musing

Let me start with telling you about how I had one last pair of very comfortable Skechers shoes which needed to be replaced.  A few years ago, Skechers hired Kim K. to do ads for their brand.  I stopped buying Skechers because of it, so I had been holding on to my beloved pair far too long.  They looked fine on the outside, but the insoles had lost a lot of their support and cushioning.

Two weeks ago, I was killing time near the Hollywood and Highland Center and decided to walk to Designer Shoe Warehouse to check out their clearance racks.  I absolutely LOVE DSW’s clearance section! I found these comfortable looking blue Bobs by Skechers shoes with memory foam.  They felt heavenly the second I tried them on.  I thought they would be perfect to wear to work because of the concrete floors. These also had a mesh toe area which allows for plenty of ventilation on a hot day.  After a full day of wearing these shoes I knew I had to get a few pairs for San Diego Comic Con for all of the walking and standing in line I’ll be doing.

In a week, I purchased two more pairs of Skechers memory foam shoes from the clearance rack at DSW, then four more pairs when I happened upon a Skechers outlet while in San Diego a few days later.  I wore the white pair to LA Cosplay Con this past Saturday, and even being worn for the first time all day, they were extremely comfortable.  They are my new obsession, and I “need” more of them!  I also wore "no-show" Skechers brand socks with them.

I’m not a cosplayer, though I have worn a costume or two in the past, so I don’t need shoes specific to a cosplay.  If you are looking for comfortable shoes for SDCC, I highly recommend Skechers memory foam shoes.  They also have shoes with yoga mat type insoles which didn’t seem quite as cushioned, but they may appeal to you.  I suggest wearing the shoes prior to San Diego Comic Con (or any other heavy walking/standing event) to make sure they are perfect for you.
