Comfy shoes for summer

9 Summer Shoes That Will Keep Your Feet in a State of Happy

Happy feet, it has been said, are the secret to a happy life. Or maybe I just said that. Anyway, as someone with a myriad of foot ailments, I am ALWAYS in search of the next, better, comfy — and not cringingly ugly — shoe.  The kind that keep your heels on a bed of squishy softness, the kind that don’t crunch your toes into a triangular point, the kind that air our tootsies and display our fabulous orange pedi, the kind you can walk in for more than 10 minutes, the kind with enough of a toe box to fit hammertoes and bunions. (Did we say we’re a site for women over 40? We know from toe box) Two of TueNight’s most popular posts are this 2015 one on comfy summer shoes and, go figure, this 2017 one on comfy summer shoes, so clearly we should be a comfy shoes site. Instead, here is our basic update for Summer 2019. This time we asked TueNighters, friends and a few fashionistas about their fave hot weather soles. They …

TueNight 10: Golda

Age: 41 Quick bio: Golda is a lawyer by day and a singer/songwriter/bassist by night and the occasional late afternoon. Her latest album, “Be My Satellite“, was just released on May 17, 2019 and is available everywhere you get your music or on her official website. Beyond the bio: “I started taking bass lessons at the tender age of 37. I told myself I’d just commit to about 10 lessons, but I ended up diving in head first and within a year I was writing songs. Despite my fat positive background (I took a five-year break from the law to be a full time body love blogger and coach in 2009), I still found myself struggling with whether pursuing music was “worthwhile” and whether I was too old/fat etc. to put myself out there. Luckily, I was able to overcome that crap and started playing out and released my first album in 2017.
