Are you brand-loyal? I have friends who are VERY loyal to the brands they like best. I don’t think I am… I do tend to favor a few brands – Lilly P – but it’s more a matter of convenience and fit than that I’d never look elsewhere.
I have on my new Orthoheel “flip flops”. I can’t wear your standard flip flop, because of the nerve damage in my feet, especially on the left side. I can’t curl my toes, so the shoes won’t stay on. However, Orthoheel’s design is all about support and alignment – something my back and I need – so, I’m giving them a try.
So far, so good, but it’s too soon to tell. I haven’t had an adjustment period, as I do when I slip on my Birkenstocks after several months of not wearing them at all. I can tell you that the recessed heel keeps them on my feet though.
Are you brand-loyal, or do you just go back to what works because it works? Is there a difference?
