Happy Thursday to you. I've shared that I've been having an issue with my left foot-specifically the ball of my foot and two of my toes. From what I've read it sounds an awful lot like Morton's Neuroma, but I sure hope not. Tuesday I went shopping with my neighbor and wore the Born shoes I got two years ago for Ireland-well, by the time I got home an hour+ later, I was noticing that it felt like the were too tight-hmm, how could that be. Granted my foot has changed since high school and college and I now wear a larger size. So today, after I got home from a ladies bible study, I dragged hubby down to the shoe store. I probably need to see a podiatrist, but am hoping I can wait until I turn 65 next year(medicare). I had been told that Earth shoes(you know those hippy type shoes many of us wore in the early 70's)would be a good shoe for me. So now they have a new line called Earth Origins that I decide to try. They are very comfortable and since I won't be walking in them each day on my walks, I think they'll be just fine. I can wear them with jeans or a long skirt. I loved that they weren't as pricey as some shoes I've looked at. Time will tell.
I've never had it easy with shoes-when I was growing up I had to wear corrective saddle shoes with a wooden heel to prevent me from pronating, something that runs in my family. The only time I remember being able to wear shoes the first time I tried them on was when I was pregnant-because my foot wasn't as skinny as normal. Add in a Morton's Toe and that limits many shoes as well. In the summer I wear Olukai sandals that were designed by a Podiatrist and I love them. They have shoes as well, but are extremely pricey.
I'll let you know how these go.
Hope you are able to find shoes that are comfortable and that work for you.
May your day be blessed!
