Do you have a special event this spring and your Danskos just won't cut it style-wise? Not sure how you'll make it through the special occasion in a pinchy dress pump with no arch support whatsoever? I present Helle Comfort footwear for your perusal. They look almost dainty for a comfort shoe brand, am I right? Most styles have adjustable forefoot straps to fit comfortably over a bothersome bunion. All have arch and metatarsal support! (Read more about the Helle Comfort brand here).
