Trouble with shoes? Let me read your pain!

Jump to last reply

I have been reading shoe topics all night long. I have worn all of the usual suspects, Birks, MBTs, Earth, Clarks, New Balance, etc...I am looking at Mephistos as now after reading reviews on the boards. I also have had orthotics made recently.

I injured my foot nearly 40 years ago, a nasty "foot and fan" horror, which I won't go into.

I have come to realize that everyone seems to have foot issues, but never says what type of problem or where it hurts. I'm hoping someone will give it up and tell where it is painful and what type of shoe helps with the pain.

I am so tired of buying and donating, I can wear my orthotics and my N.B. shoes for about 30 minutes. Then the tingling, burning and numb feeling sets in and I must get off of the drated appendage for awhile. After a rest, the foot is good to go for a while longer. Eventually, though the foot will not take another step.

Before my next trip in September I am considering going to a Podiatrist and check into injections for the arthritic beast..

I would love to hear from everyone, and hey, maybe there is a solution out there for us all.
