Josef Seibel sandals are so pretty...unfortunately I have wide feet and have never found any that were comfortable enough.
The Celtic & Co boots are expensive. I bought a pair of knee high aqua-lambs in 2013 and they're still going strong. I wear them to walk the dog in the winter as they're my warmest boots, I don't need socks in them as they're fleece lined... altho they are a bit mud encrusted atm and I wouldn't wear them in the pouring rain. When the weather warms up I give them a thorough service and pack them away...I'd never wear my Uggs in wet weather, I have posh ones but slop about in my most battered pair most of the time because they're so comfy...the sheepskin of the Uggs isn't as tough and thick as the Celtic ones and they don't last as long....but I LOVE them....
It is funny how "particular" this is. My feet are wide in front - remember, duck feet, wide in front, narrow in back, and I have Josef Seibels that are among the most comfy and supportive ones I've ever had, including "professional" looking ones that I haven't thrown out yet, though alas I highly doubt they can be revived again. They were funky looking Mary Janes with a wide footbox and two straps and buckles, with a chunky bit of a heel that were great for walking (this depends on feet - some people are more comfy with a bit of a thick heel, others not).
Younger, I wore those Clarks sandals with straps and buckles, not very pretty but lasted forever. They are no longer made in the UK and not at all the same quality.
Yep...wore the same ones...and in winter wore the buckle version of the closed toe style. The buckles were always catching on the threads of our lounge and chairs and making the furniture tatty. When it got re-covered we were banned from the lounge room if wearing buckles.

In my younger days I wore a Mary Jane style soft leather ecco shoe...really light. I call them my 'dollies' and still have a brown pair that I refuse to throw away even tho it's impossible to fix the worn down moulded sole...
