Oprah Winfrey goes shopping in fluffy frog slippers (photo courtesy of it’s good enough for Oprah, it’s good enough for Bunion Survivors! When I saw these photos of Oprah wearing these “fluffy frog slippers,” had made it to the Daily Mail, I knew I had to share this article with you to remind you to honor your bunioned feet and when they hurt, try slippers that make you smile.

She may be worth billions of dollars but even Oprah Winfrey opts for comfort over style occasionally.

The 58-year-old hit a designer clothes store in New York City today sporting a pair of fluffy frog slippers.

Below are a pair of fluffy froggy slippers similar to the ones that Oprah is wearing shopping.  The holidays are coming. Treat yourself to a pair and give them as a gift to a friend who you want to smile when she thinks of you.

If you’re getting ready to have bunion surgery or are in recovery, these slippers will be comfortable and fun to wear once you’re out of your protective boot.

If you have a pair of beloved slippers, email me a photo of you wearing them and I’ll post. In the meantime, I’m going to get myself a new pair of slippers!


Are aching feet keeping you from logging the miles you want? Seventy percent of women have a bunion, hammertoe, or other foot problem that can become uncomfortable enough to hobble any fitness walker. <more>

This is a great article with three foot exercises you’ll definitely want to try. While my right foot is healing, I can do these on my left foot. Who knows, maybe it will prevent bunion surgery on my left foot.

The author of the article, Maggie Spilner is a great resource and inspiration for walking and foot care. I had the pleasure of meeting her when we were both speaking on a cruiseship (and went through a hurricane together).
One thing I’ve learned from this bunion surgery is the importance of exercising your feet and caring for them in the same way you do your face, hands, or any other part of your body. What’s amazing to me now, after learning so much about bunions and foot care is how little attention most people pay to their feet and all the beautiful gifts our feet give us in the way of living a full life.

I realize now that if I’d gotten myself to a podiatrist years ago when my feet started aching, maybe I could have prevented surgery. Don’t make the same mistakes I have; if your feet hurt, get them checked out and do these basic exercises in this article every day and save your feet.
