Men’s Chaco Hipthongs & Women’s Orthaheel Thong Sandals

Skitz Pick

Relief for the feet!  Flip flops are not just for the pool or beach anymore! 

When your feet hurt, everything hurts. Having suffered for years with a messy foot injury, I know a good shoe when I FEEL it on my feet.

I thought I’d have to live in stability sneakers the rest of my life. While high heels are pretty much a “no way” for me, I have branched out to find comfortable shoes that are NOT UGLY!  Not a small task.  

Traditional flip flops offer very little support in the arch and none around the heel. Things have changed and stores like The Walking Company and Zappos.com, now sell comfortable and stylish “European style” shoes.  I now own brands made in Israel and Italy. American manufacturers are catching on. You can now find entire sections devoted to comfort shoes in department stores like Macy’s and Nordstrom’s.  And they don’t look like something only your grandmother would wear!

Here are my top picks for fabulous flip flops for summer! They are pricey for “sandals” but your feet will thank you:) Read more

CEP Allsports Calf Sleeves

Skitz Pick

Call it “Spanx” for athletes!  I love compression gear!  I own compression shirts, shorts, capris, socks and now calf sleeves.

 I race in them and wear them to speed my recoveries from hard workouts.  The tightness feels like a massage while you’re working out.  Similar to taping, except without the restriction of movement, compression gear provides support in all the right places.

Available in white, black, red, green, pink, and blue
