Born Tierney - Comfortable Women's Casual Heel at Dillard's at Paradise Valley Mall



Okay, Gene Tierney and the Born Tierney shoe are not related - I just happen to be a big fan of both the actress and the shoe!

I purchased the Born Tierney today and have enjoyed wearing it out this evening. 
Very stylish and comfortable... 

I love the beautiful rich finish and I love the height it gives me (four inches) but because of the wedge sole - it comes out to about only two inches of actual elevation for the foot. The thick rigid sole is protective of the foot and the forefoot and excellent rearfoot strapping allows for more biomechanical control of the foot and ankle and therefore - more comfort. 

This Shoe is Recommended For Most Patients with:
*Mild Heel Pain
*Mild Bunions and Hammertoes
*Mild Tailor's Bunions 
*Mild Achilles Tendonitis 
*High Instep
*Bumps/Exostosis on the top of the Midfoot Area

This Shoe Is NOT Recommended For Patients with:
*Neuropathy (Nerve Damage)
*History of Ulcers or Open Sores
*Charcot Foot
*Moderate to Severe Bunions or Hammertoes
*Hallux Limitus/Rigidus (Limited Range of Motion across the 1st Toe Joint)
*Osteoarthritis or Degenerative Joint Disease of any of the Forefoot Joints
*Capsulitis of the Forefoot Joints
*Moderate to Severe Morton's Neuroma
*Moderate to Severe Ankle Instability 
*Moderate to Severe Hypermobility 
*Moderate to Severe Tailor's Bunions 

I'm love this shoe! 

It's flattering and comfortable. 

If you have any serious forefoot problems - particularly pain or limited range of motion across the forefoot joints - this is not the shoe for you. 

8 on a scale of 1 to 10 with ten being the best. 

I paid $99 at Dillard's at Paradise Valley Mall. 

I also highly recommend the 1944 classic movie "Laura" starring Gene Tierney.
