One Patient's Positive Perspectives

Favorite Things

My favorite butterfly image, the "mascot' of my blog!

The following are my UNSOLICITED endorsements of my favorite butterfly, lupus-friendly and “Put on Purple products. (I receive no compensation or financial benefit from my endorsement of the following items.)

My absolute favorites

Light as a feather Sketcher’s Go Walk shoes — after my recent purchase I own 4 pairs! The only problem is the Sketcher’s stores and online store were almost immediately out of stock in the purple shoes shown in the commercial video. The clerk told me that the biggest question asked at their recent company conference was, “where are the purple Go Walks?” and explaining further, “everyone asks for them, and it ends up they only made a limited run of them.” I do have an almost purple pink/grey heather pair that come off looking like purple, so I am happy. These are the most comfortable shoe my arthritic foot has ever worn, and are now at the top of my favorite products list.
