shoes

I'm wearing a special insole,with a lump in it to press up at what corresponds to a hand knuckle joint and widen the gap between two bones that are pressing on a nerve.  It is, we've worked out, a long standing thing,exacerbated by an ankle that has always been weaker....so will take work over time to correct.

I'm finding HAVING to wear shoes a problem.

No taking off shoes as you enter the house.

No wearing jandals/flipflps/thong sandals...although after six months in New Zealand my ankle was stronger....

It is just going against the grain for a barefoot walker.

I also have "parameters" imposed on my shoe options now. If I put up with a clog, or similar, that doesn't bend, I can prolong the interval between horrible cortisone shots into the base joint of my big toe.
I have several pairs of shoes that I'll never wear again. They still look so pretty in my closet.....

with you on this g .... except, for me, its going against the grain for a shoe lover .... I've had to wear orthotics for many years now .... I miss shoe shopping and hate having to take out a loan in order to buy shoes that I can fit to my orthotics

I started out with bad feet, wore corrective shoes in the cradle. Manipulated my toes down to normal positions as a kid, which worked.

Still, love to be barefoot. Need solid shoes and arch supports.

In short - my sympathies.
