Athletic shoes for women?
Where in Berkeley-Oakland is there a bricks-and-mortar store to buy decent-quality women's athletic shoes?
This is driving me crazy.
Because of my vision problems, it is very important that I have solid shoe support, to prevent falling. Stiletto heels are not an option. (:-)
REI used to be my go-to, but the quality has plummeted. In common women's sizes (7-8), it seems that all they have are weird designs in weird colors.
Cheap shoes made in Asia tend to have stiff heels that require a struggle to put on, or collapse with wear.
Buying shoes over the Internet is impossible.
If you know where to get good black cross-trainer shoes of any brand, please share your secret!
