Oh Brooke, even with nearly 50 years you are a marvellous lady. And finally, you have taken a decision which you should have taken 30 years earlier - to wear Birkenstock Gizeh. Now, after twofold bunion surgery in 1994 and 2008 (if I'm right) your bunions re-appeared and your smaller toes are completely distorted and in part overlapping. From now on, you should avoid tight shoes or high heels at any occasions and wear comfy shoes with a footbed only !
On the other hand, we all wore Kælso Earth Shoes with 'negative soles' (heel lower than ball of foot) back in the 70s and they were ugly as sin!
The theory was they were 'natural' like your heel sinking into the sand when walking on a beach. Great way to stretch your Achilles tendon, vs. compacting it as high heels do. May help prevent plantar fasciitis, but I think I read somewhere that they found out those were harmful or at least not beneficial.
beautiful woman that has been a pleasure to watch grow up and blossom. Brooke is all woman, all-lady, and carries herself so well despite her statuesque height. in this pose her toes on her left foot appear to be sloping evenly from her gorgeous big toe down to her cute pinky toe. yet in many other pix that third toe on her left foot has some gnarly action going on. some women (see SarahJParker) let a lifetime of designer heels malign their feet - careful Brooke!
