Last week, I went into Isetan, hoping to see if my usual brand of shoes were on sale (I used to buy Easy Spirit) but for some reason, the Isetan at The Gardens doesn’t carry it anymore. I may be mistaken of course and they may have just moved. However, I happened to then stroll past the Rockport shoe store and decided to enter, on a whim.
I’d never paid attention to Rockport shoes before this but I picked up a pair of pumps with heels of at least 4 inches and slipped them on for a lark. Oh boy! What a mistake that was :P They felt incredibly comfortable and did not feel like I was wearing super high heels at all!
I have stopped wearing too high heels because my back would ache but these shoes didn’t throw my back out at all when I tried them on. The heels are super high and really sexy but there’s a thick platform at the front to balance off the height so I could actually walk in them without falling over or throwing out my back too much.
The shoe felt well made and I tried on a few other styles in heels which also felt comfortable on first try. There was sufficient padding in the sole, the curve of the sole was not too steep, and the arch seemed supported (important for a flat foot like me). The designs aren’t terribly exciting but they felt comfortable. The shoes are supposed to use something called adiprene technology by Adidas for cushioning and shock absorption (it sounds like a car doesn’t it? A shoe with shock absorbers!) which makes it more comfortable.
I didn’t get a pair just yet. I wanted to wait for a bit – comfort comes with a bit of a heftyish price tag (RM300+ to RM500+ depending on design) so I wanted to see if anyone wears Rockport shoes and what you think of them?
Does anyone own Rockport shoes? Do you recommend them and what do you like about them? Is there a particular style you find more comfortable than others? I saw that they do a good range of flats and walking shoes too. Do share your thoughts on these shoes eh? You’re my best resource :D
p/s Just found out Rockport shoes are available inside Isetan! Can’t wait to rack up those rebate points mwahahaha! ;)
