interesting shoes. i realized i hadn't been in a regular shoe store in a long time...there were a lot of flat bottomed shoes, most sandals, sneaker-like shoes (converse and converse imitations, plus others) and, well, i don't know what the category of sunuk shoes is, but they had a lot of those type as well. i wound up getting a pair of shoes by crevo, which look a lot like the sanuks i saw online...slip-ons. there were a lot of thong-like sandals, as well as enclosed and semi-enclosed, the later having a more roman-soldier look, but all had flat bottoms.
the arch support is still curious to me...i.e. whether one needs it or not. i am guessing not, since going barefoot doesn't have arch support...only whatever your arch is built like...fallen, middling, or high, with many degrees in between, i'm sure. much has been said about the heel, but i haven't heard anything about arch support, pro or con.
