Ok, so tomorrow I am going shoe shopping. Aimee gave me advice and I plan on checking into all of them....if I can find them in my tiny neck of the woods. My friend works where they sell MBT and thinks I should try them out...they're expensive for not knowing if I would like them or not.
My doctor suggested New Balance or Ryka. Opinions?

Anyone ever try these??

Do you have the Athletes Foot there?

They have a machine that you walk over, and it analyses your weight distribution etc etc etc etc etc (very complex and technical) and then it & the salespeople give you the shoe that's *exactly* right for you.

It has worked for me. It worked for my mother. The local oncologist sends his patients there, because he thinks good foot support is an important part of arthritis treatment.

Ivy,

I've never heard of such a thing!! I will have to do some searching, and hopefully if not one here, then one in the city.
That would be fantastic!!

Is that found in a podiatrists office or who would have one??

Very intrigued!!

The Athlete's Foot is a shoe store that mainly sells athletic shoes. The stores are usually found in malls. If you have to travel a bit to get to one, call first to see if they have the machine. The one in my local mall doesn't.

You can also check specialty shoe stores, the type that cater to people with foot problems. Be careful though, these specialty stores usually charge a lot more for shoes.

I love Avia sneakers but they bother my husband's feet. I just make sure that whatever I buy feels amazing on my feet the minute I put them on. New Balance is nice because they come in different widths so if your feet are skinnier or wider than average, you can get a better fit. I have big wide feet so I usually buy sneakers from the men's dept.

"The Athlete's Foot" doesn't sound like too appealing of a name lol confused   I've never heard of it..
 
I was actually planning on going on a search for good shoes, my feet kill me all the time because I wear edgy-looking Rocketdogs and Converse All-Stars lol nono
 
Tina, if you don't mind, let me know what kind yah get and how they work for you!!

Living in maine we can get new balance at a good price so that is usually what I wear and I love them. I have a bunion so they have plenty enough room for my big fat feet.
Fibro, interstitial cystitis, migraines, rotated femur, bunion on rt ft, hiatal hernia, for just a few.

reglan, prilosec otc, nadol, citrilipram, flexeril, and peroxicam, and Tylenol.

I wear nothing but crocs these days. You can get them online and they are reasonably priced. They do not hurt my feet ever!!

I used to wear sneakers, but since I gained a belly, I have a hard time tying them. Besides they would sometimes hurt my feet. The crocs are lightweight and never do. The only problem is in the winter your feet can get cold if you don't wear them with socks, but you can and they still fit great. I can't say enough good things about my crocs.

Hope this helps.

I have a pair of crocs too, but my doctor said they weren't good for my feet. I love them though. Wore them
a lot last summer.

I searched "the athlete's foot" store and found it's in Australia and New Zealand. No US. Am I searching the wrong thing?

I had to put my shoe shopping on hold. Got up today to temps in the teens, snow and hard blowing winds. It's taken
it's toll on my body. The fog is very thick upstairs today lol. So today I shall stay in where it's dry and warm.

I think I am going to call my Dr. on Monday and ask for a referral to a Podiatrist. I'd like to see what kind of shoe they
recommend. I can't afford to keep "buying and trying" and having the shoe not be right for me. I usually like a challenge,
but this is ridiculous.

Is there a topic where we can just vent or whine? LOL
