I am wondering if anyone has any good shoe suggestions. I have purchased several pairs of running/athletic shoes in the last year and while the most expensive pair I bought seems to be the best of the bunch, my feet still hurt. I do have high arches and use the Superfeet Green insoles and these seem to improve things across the board, but I'm still searching for a better situation. Does anyone have any shoe recommendations?
Thank you! I think you may have really hit on the issue here.Sneakers make things worse for me - which from a biomechanics POV isn’t such a surprise- If your soft tissue hurts - a soft shoe actually can work soft tissue harder !
I just learned about that when one of the horses started having hoof issues!@frieda might know that one of the preliminary investigation tests for lameness in horses is to see if they are more lame on hard ground ( like a concrete yard surface) 0r soft ground - like a riding surface, grass in winter -
I am not familiar with that company but I did break down and go to The Walking Company last year and did their computerized shoe fitting stuff. I ended up with some Abeo running shoes and Dansko clogs from that. I spent $160 on the running shoes, and they felt great, but they had only had tread for about 5 months. I was walking on concrete a lot but I had really hoped they would last longer than that for that price. I found another pair of those on clearance for about half of what I paid for the first pair that I still have and they are still good for heavy walking/running. But I managed to unearth the clogs that I have barely worn, yesterday, hoping they will be better for day to day stuff.I finally gave in and went to When The Shoe Fits because we were headed to Europe and I knew I was going to be doing a lot of walking. They were able to find me a couple pairs of shoes that made an incredible difference. I about died from sticker shock, but 5 years later I'm still wearing them and the difference between them and my regular shoes is just amazing.
I don't think there is anything wrong with my feet, necessarily. Last year, I was told I damaged a ligament in my left foot, but I am not even sure that is true. I am having some neuropathy in my left foot from a compressed nerve. My gait has been pretty off for the last year and a half (due to hip problems), as well, and I don't think that is helping. Both feet hurt a lot right now after I suddenly started standing more after I did something weird to my femoral nerve. Sitting down is pretty uncomfortable. I have a doc appointment tomorrow, as it just seems to be getting worse over the last 3 days.
I wonder if this is why I'm having sooo much pain now. My eating is out of control. Lots of bready stuff - and I'm really supposed to be staying away from gluten.Note to self
When you stuff yourself with lots of sugar and way to much food over too many days the fibro will respond --- badly.
You would think I would know this by now!
