    I'm partial to the Velcro fasteners for shoes.

    Felt too bad to respond much to this thread, but I have been wondering if any of you have tried any Bernie Mav's. My hairdresser use to wear these and stand in them all day. I ordered a pair, but they run large and they only come in medium width so I had to send them back. Thursday when I went to eye doctor I stopped by pharmacy and saw a lady with some on that lace up. I asked her how she liked them and she said she just loved them, that she felt she was walking on a cloud. They are very soft and her's were lace ups that looked like they were crunchy. Very cute. She said she had Dr. Scholl's supports in them to give them a little more support. She told me they keep her from tripping and keep her toes from going under. She was older, but not MS. I wish I could wear them. I have considered ordering them and seeing if putting the arch supports in would make them tight enough on my feet.

    Thought I would just mention them on here.

    I hadn't heard of them but found them at Zappo's. They look like substantial shoes of good quality.

    I've been looking at footwear on the Zappo's Website and others lately and noticing that many of the shoes shown come only in medium width. Maybe it's a new trend? A few of those I looked at had width choices but not many.

    I have noticed that too Agate. But I Purchased a pair of Clark’s and they were wide enough. I read the comments people had written and so I tried them. I usually need a wide shoe. Go figure!

    Virginia, all my shoes are slip on. I can't deal with laces at all. I have a pair or sneakers that lace up, but I tied them once, and left them loose enough to slip off so I don't have to tie them again. But I seldom wear them anyway.

    Linda, I like Clarks, too. I have 2 pair.

    The original question was about shoes that are stylish AND can accommodate an FES device.
