Something touched me deep inside…

sandal therapy
…the day the music died, sang Don Maclean. And when Theresia Abby Sandal distribution dried up and died in the US, it left many poor souls gasping If you don’t know about the Theresia Abbysandal, it’s just perfect if you’re feet are not right, when you’ve, let’s say, matured a little. A fabulous anatomical footbed in moldable cork, supple leather uppers, adjustable straps, and a full a heel counter for stability. But the clincher is the slimming, diagonal design of the straps, and the fact that the Theresia sandal is both broad and feminine at the same time and revealing yet covering. I just don’t’ know of a replacement that comes close to delivering all these features. If you do, let me know.

Could divine deliverance of pain be the origin of Theresia M?

The Ecstacy of St. Theresia

Few have passed by the Baroque relief sculpture by Gian Lorenzo Bernini, in Rome known as “Ecstasy of St. Theresia,” without being affected by the human expression of relief, pleasure and submission in the face of St. Theresa.

For years, the Theresia M shoes and sandals delivered to countless women an amazing relief from pain.  No one knows whether the divinity was in the soul (excuse the pun), the structure of the outersole, or the soft, supple and often adjustable uppers.

But these ladies’ relief was short lived because of a recent interruption of imports into the U.S. They are still sold in Europe.  In the US, you can find them on E-Bay, the Find, Boston Pedorthic and a handful of local retailers while supplies last.
