My eldest son has several health issues. Over the years it has been challenging to work out which are real and which are in his mind. Of course, things need checking out and sometimes what I thought was imaginary has turned out to be very real. You live and learn as a mum. One of his issues is that he finds it very challenging to feel comfortable in shoes. This has an adverse impact on his quality of life. It appears he is flat-footed but the shoes that are prescribed for him seem to be uncomfortable too. When funds are limited it is difficult to work out which brand to go with to make sure he can enjoy walking again. I find Rieker shoes work magic.
Rieker men’s shoes review
We were sent a pair of shoes to review just at the time when my son was really struggling on his walks. I should point out my son loves to walk whether to the shops or out in the countryside. We were given a choice of designs and my son chose a pair of men’s grey slip on shoes to try.
You have got to be impressed by a shoe that both a 51 year old mum and a 19 year old teenager both find super stylish.
As soon as they arrived my son tried them on and found them so easy to wear. He walked to the supermarket and did not fall over as he had previously in his other pair of shoes designed for comfort from another brand. He was thrilled and so was I as it meant we could have long walks and quality time together.
Here are the details of the shoes.
- Upper Material: Textile upper
- Fastener: Slip On
- Fitting: Wide +
- Sole: RIRICON
- Removable Insole: No
- Heel Height: 36 mm
My son started a degree course in Politics and Sociology at Exeter University at the weekend. Those shoes were made for walking, studying and partying in!
I should point out that my son also has his own sense of style so loves vintage-retro.com which features styles inspired by different decades. His particular favourite is 1930’s men’s fashion so he turns heads at his university in a very good way.
