Many who are dealing with a recent disabling condition requiring the use of a cane or other walking aid are hesitant. Adopting a cane can sometimes make one feel like they are crossing a milestone or granting too much validity to their condition.
But it is not so. Using a cane is a part of everyday life for people young and old. In fact, for several centuries, canes were mainly worn for their style and expression. If you find yourself needing a cane in order to maintain balance, it’s also a great opportunity for self-expression.
Rather than being embarrassed by a cane, wear your cane with confidence and look up to these historical and fictional figures known for sporting classy walking sticks.
1. Dr. House
The witty and notoriously sarcastic Dr. Gregory House from the hit TV series “House” has helped launch the cane back into popular fashion in the last decade.
Our Adjustable Folding Cane has a simple appearance and therefore looks a lot like Dr. House’s. Made of sleek, anodized aluminum, the Adjustable Folding Cane comes in either black or bronze colors.
While it looks simple, it has some great adaptable features. Not only is the height adjustable for a perfect fit, but the cane also folds up for easy storage.
2. Winston Churchill
The famous wartime British Prime Minister Winston Churchill always carried a cane and claimed to be “walking with destiny.”
The Adjustable Folding Designer Canes have the same features of the Adjustable Folding Cane but come in more colors. Adopt the style of a strong-headed statesman with the Green Cyclone, Blue Cyclone or Blue Ice designs. Beige Floral is also available.
3. Willy Wonka
The zany chocolatier from the classic children’s book Charlie and The Chocolate Factory would be incomplete without his cane.
Try some of our zany cane design covers to give some life to your gait. The Cane Expressions Cane Covers come in red, leopard or zebra designs.
Deluxe Covers include a bright beaded design, bronze shimmer or silver shimmer.
4. Fred Astaire
Our list would be incomplete without mentioning the Broadway dancer whose cane tricks made him famous for “puttin’ on the ritz.”
You may not be able to do the same cane tricks as Astaire, but whatever tricks you attempt, don’t forget to wear the Universal Cane Wrist Strap to prevent dropping and possibly losing your cane.
Canes are a wonderful accessory for expressing ourselves. Find a cane or cane accessory that is right for you!
