athletic shoes with arch support? Empty athletic shoes with arch support?

Post by ferret on Tue Aug 21, 2012 9:28 pm

Is there any place Lakeside that sells Nikes or Reeboks or whatever that have a proper arch support inside?
I've had my hand inside nearly every shoe at Marti's and they are all lacking the proper arch support that I'm used to feeling in good quality athletic shoes NOB.
Would appreciate any help with this...and, as a last resort, I'm willing to go to Guadalajara.
TIA

I don't think there is anything at Lakeside. I suggest the Outlet Mall. There are several athletic footwear stores there carrying different brands. You "should" be able to find something there at a decent price. Alternately, is Galerias Mall, but you'll pay a heck of a lot more.

I "always" buy Nike Air. For me I think they're the best because of my knee problem. I once had a pair of Nike Air in the US that I wore to work on my feet all day for 6 years! That's quality. I have a pair of Nike Air that I bought here about 6 years ago and the sole is not worn, but I'm not on my feet as much. I don't believe Reebok can compete in comfort.

Try the shoe store near the plaza in Chapala. It's at the corner of Juarez and Lopez Cotilla. They have a good selection of Nike as well as other brands.

Thanks for the responses.

Just following up...today we went to the Outlet Mall between Jocotepec and Guadalajara. Many, many choices of shoes to choose from. My hubby ended up buying a pair of "Shape-ups" by Skechers in a store called "Charlie".
The REAL reason I'm writing this follow-up is about something I learned in Mexican shoe sizing today. My hubby tried on a size 29 which was too big...he asked for a 28 1/2. The young lady (Lulu) explained that a 28 is the same length as a 28 1/2...that the 1/2 simply means it's WIDER. Turned out to be true and, for the first time in a while, hubby has shoes that are the proper width. Love a salesperson who knows their stuff.
Hoping this has helped someone with NOB wide feet.

Ferret:

Now that your husband is the proud owner of a pair of Sketcher Shape-Ups, maybe he can get in on the $40M settlement for false advertising: http://articles.latimes.com/2012/may/17/nation/la-na-nn-skechers-20120517

Just being sarcastic since the most important thing is the fit and who cares about the reputation and hype? One person that I know of:

That was funny Neil! "Truth in Advertising"?...how about "Stupidity in Customers"?. Anyone who believes that they'll get a Kardashian butt from just wearing those shoes is several bricks short of a full load.
That's on a par with someone using one of those fancy razors and believing they'll be able to play a professional sport. DUH!

arch support insoles are (usually) available at the pharmacy.

Yes, they are. When you have had severe Plantar Faciatis, you get custom ones made because "off the rack" just doesn't work. That's me and that's my next step BEFORE I get my shoes.
