I’m due on January 31st, which in my Southern Maine climate means that winter will certainly have made itself known already. Being an otherwise fiscally sensible person, I’m saving a fortune bargain and consignment shopping for maternity clothes that I know (or at least hope) I’ll be out of before the end of winter, but I am absolutely willing to spend some real money on some good shoes.
My question for current and future mamas out there: what are the best possible shoes I can buy for safe, comfortable winter wear during and after my pregnancy? I’d love to find something that can be worn all day. I’m not necessarily looking for specific shoes or boots, just styles and shapes that mamas before me have found to be friendly for potentially size-shifting feet in less-than-perfect weather. — Goldfish Fox.
A few ideas from our readers:
Cheaper than the real thing, AND vegan-friendly!
Nurses and chefs can’t be wrong — these guys are comfy!
Skate-shoe cool, and pregnant-mama-friendly!
Spendy, but worth it!
As a reader says, “My most comfortable pair of shoes for winter time are hands down my Haflinger boiled wool clogs. I have high arches and I prefer firm support; these have cork footbeds, much like Birkenstocks.”
So wide, so fuzzy, so comfortable. Maybe ugly, but SO COMFORTABLE.
