Are you looking for the BariatricPal Store? Go now!

Like Before and After photos but for your footwear!

A lot of us change shoe size after surgery, (go down in size and width!) but even more interestingly we become more daring also, trading in flats for stilettos, crocks for running sneakers or even flip flops for closed toe...

If you've had a changes some to your shoe game (or anticipate new shoes & goal shoes) , please share with us your experience and maybe even a photo!

I'll kick this off lol

The heeled boots were presurgery and I was amazed they were so comfortable I bought 3 pairs. I lived in these, all day running around in heels. They were amazing.

Now, post surgery I have one last unworn pair that are too loose and uncomfortable to wear without 2 pair of socks 😢

I try on a lot of different shoes but pretty much exclusively wear the ones in the second picture. They are a half size smaller and made for walking. Everywhere.

Managed these through a 4-hour cocktail party, previously would’ve looked for a wedge. Wore them around the store for 30 minutes just in case, but they worked out!

And I’m experiencing the same thing with boots - all the awesome boots I own are now a LITTLE too roomy all round. So I went a half size down and it’s a perfect fit.

This is a non-scale-victory that never crossed my mind. Between a lifetime of working on my feet and being obese, heels haven't even crossed my mind in years. Pretty shoes will now be another motivator to work hard at losing.

I have always bought some heels and wedges and never wore them. I think it was a mental thing to have them.. who knows if next year I wont actually wear ones I buy lol

The first thing that stopped fitting me was my pair of tall boots. Which makes me sad because it's too early to think about buying new ones and they're my perfect shoe for work in winter.
