Make sure you're wearing the right shoes.

Good fitted shoes are like night and day. Worth the drive.

My daughter has flat feet - she stands all day on her job and she complains a lot - she still has not sought a good work shoe - but maybe if she feels bad enough she will. A good shoe or perhaps an insole may help you too.

I agree with the post below. Good shoes are worth their weight in gold.

Shoes do make a HUGE difference. It is definitely worth the investment. I had never had a problem until exercising in some new balance shoes from Ross that gave me shin splints. I find it worth it spending the $$ for good shoes to avoid injury. A good store will be able to point you in the direction of a shoe for people that over pronate (flat feet). And as previously said, low impact exercise is good too. swimming, ellpiticals. Good luck!

Well, the only way to get the right shoes is to go to a good shoe store. BUT! When I had foot pain like that I took up swimming, with swim fins. My feet (and thighs and butt) got so much stronger that the pain faded away. Things got aligned better, too. Just a thought.

Okay, so I started adding more exercise to videos and with the Wii Zumba in. However, my feet are killing me not even 5 minutes in to exercising..it feels like I am walking on a bunch of pins. I have barely any arch...does anybody have any advice for shoes? I am assuming I need new shoes. I would go to a shoe store and ask, but I live about 2 hours from the nearest store that could help with that.

I appreciate any advice!

Thanks!
