How a Fashionable Senior Finds Comfort

Always on the go, Audrey Levine looks for a blend of comfort and style.

Next shoe purchase: “Anything I see and like. I’d probably never spend more than $100, and only for something that was really comfortable and would serve me for play and sport.”

Dream shoe: “A 3-inch heel with a well-padded metatarsal area, so the impact of walking would be lessened. It would be black and white and have some kind of flower on the front. The heels wouldn’t be composite because they’re hard on the back when you walk.”

Footwear wish: “I’d like to see more things made here in the U.S., and at prices that middle-class aging people can afford without floating a loan. I watch ‘Sex and the City’ and understand the draw of the high heel and the bling, but $400 and up for a shoe I will wear maybe three times a year is just nuts.”
