Arch-Support of ^a "Dorothy Dodd."
SAVE THE FATiaUE.
"When your foot is tired from long walking or stand?
ing, you rest it most by holding it in your hand and
compressing it firmly around and beneath the instep.
This Is exactly what the "Dorothy Dodd" shoe does for you all
the time. It is like a soft hand firmly grasping the "waist" of the
foot and supporting the arch.
You will never realize how much of your daily fatigue
can be relieved until you try a "Dorothy Dodd,"
And the "Dorothy Dodd" retains its arch shape and sets closely up
to the. foot after it has been worn for months. No other shoe Is
made like It. Other shoes bend in the wrong place with every step
you take. Thus the foot becomes tired. Is It worth while to en?
dure ti>ed feet when the remedy is so simple?
