Craig, you absolutely crack me up! Those socks are awesome, I HAVE to have a pair now! Do they make them in Slipper-sock format??? I wonder....
Scott - I have severe problems with my feet caused by growing up with JRA in my knees. Now the psoriatic arthritis along with morton's nueroma (sp?) cause me a lot of grief. The podietrist recommended New Balance sneakers for me as I cannot wear anything w/o a lot of support. (Sadly, I have attended many-a-weddings and was IN a wedding wearing these lovely sneaks with my dresses! I was comfy at least thought laughable. ) I also recommend seeing a podietrist and possibly getting proper support inserts as I am living proof that years of walking incorrectly to counteract pain elsewhere can really screw up one's feet!
LOL...I gotta get some of those socks!!!
Anyway, my rheummy recommended Saucony shoes...wide toe box, good support...they feel pretty good although when the feet hurt bad NOTHING seems to help much. Go to a good store to buy them though so they can measure and watch your feet when you step forward to see how your weight distributes...the guy that did mine says that most of us wear our shoes too small.
