Laurie I have walked many years with a cane. However, I have designer canes, (3)lol. Yes, I am vain about
it. I did have 4 till one was stolen from my hospital room. WalMart and some drug stores ,carry these canes, but I prefer to go to a medical supply store and let them measure me and fit the cane to me properly. Thats real important. They have the best selection of designer canes. Designer canes comes in various patterns & colors very pretty, people will comment and tell you how pretty they are. The canes have cost me between $24.95 and $29.95 very reasonable for a pretty cane. The one stolen was awesome, clear acryllic one piece was cut to my measurements, I hope the person that stole it enjoys it. I will never walk with a plain jane cane lol.
