Though I am no longer a young woman, I still only buy and wear only Reebok sports shoes.
I began wearing Reeboks in the mid 1980s, I owned the original Reebok High Tops. I was not able to afford them working myself, in Los Angeles -when your footwear, reflected your "cool" factor. I was embarrassed wearing a no name brand to meetings and sober dances then.
While I struggled to keep roof overhead, my best friend had a secure job with the Post Office , and she knowing all, about my wants and dreams -gifted me my 1st pair of Reebok high tops, for Christmas. It is a thing, I will NEVER forget. I was overwhelmed with her kindness. I remain Reeboks Only girl due to the superior Arch Support they have, unlike any other brands of sport shoes I have tried since.
Still,though I cannot afford them brand New, I can find them in my size, online, in very good used condition, and that... speaks volumes, about their manufacturing care and specifications. All my footwear , still must have excellent arch support and MUST last many seasons. Reeboks then, and now, continue, to meet that need for me. So why... buy anything else??
Staying sober worked out for me also, and I have kept that habit up too.
Though I lost that best friend eventually, to her choice of drinking again, I now maintain 35 years fully clean and sober.
In my shoe-wear and life, only-the BEST support , for me.
