I've got a few more years of buying shoes in my past than do you, since I'm 60. My rule of thumb, when I can afford it, is to buy two pairs of basic shoes when I love the fit, and two purses when I find one with pouches all in the right place --one for now, one for when the first wears out!
My other rule of thumb is that, if a pair of shoes doesn't fit in the store, they will NOT get more comfortable if I "just walk around at home in them for a while." They simply will NOT! Alas, I learned that the hard way. And I've learned great self-discipline in putting them back on the rack.
These Shape Ups took me for a 2+ mile walk this morning... and they're so comfortable, I don't want to take them off, even though that's my practice when I'm inside.
So, sure! Go ahead and try them on when you find some. I'd love to know what you think.
