Poor Unfortunate Soles, Part 2: The Fit


I know that in the past my shoes were nasty.
I wasn’t kidding when I said they hurt, well, like a witch.
But you’ll find that nowadays, I’ve mended all my ways,
Repented, seen the light, and made a switch.

It’s time for part two of our series, and this post will address measuring and fitting. Some may find this an odd place to start — surely arch supports are more important, right? Sure, proper support of the underside of the foot is important, but the dirty secret that shoe people are loath to divulge is that putting an orthotic in a $30 shoe that fits correctly will result in a happier customer than a $300 high-end shoe that doesn’t fit. So before we can fit the nooks and crannies of the bottom of one’s feet, we have to address the other five surfaces.

Alexandra DeSanctis of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are all for a robust federal response to assist in the recovery and the rebuilding of the Texas coast, but they also don’t want to see the legislation turn into a spending spree for a bunch of unrelated projects for other parts of the country and they applaud political and policy figures for setting that priority now.  They also unload on the mayor of Berkeley, California, for calling for speakers like Milo Yiannopoulos and Ann Coulter not to speak on campus because it might set off the Antifa rioters.  And Alexandra explains the litany of double standards as the media and social media savage First Lady Melania Trump for wearing high heels to board Air Force One on her way to survey the devastating floods in Texas.
