Okay y'all I need some advice about shoes. Mine have just about bit the dust and I got a pair just so I've have a pair when mine are gone until I can find a new pair. They feel good but after a while I just have to get out of them like NOW and my feet hurt so bad afterwards. It could all be related to the plantar facisiis (spelled wrong I know). I've been looking online and in stores for shoes but so far haven't found anything I really like.
So here's my story - I'm diabetic and am looking to get special inserts for my shoes so I guess my shoes would have to have removable inserts. I wear either a 10 1/2 or 11 wide, depending on the shoe and how they run. I have large heel spurs on both feet. I can't stand any shoe that touches my ankles - high sensitivity in that area probably from my fibromyalgia. I walk up to 5 miles a day right now. My walking surfaces vary alot here in town. Old 50 year old concrete (or older), newer concrete, black topped highways, gravel roads, dirt paths, rocky areas, oiled rock roads, grassy areas and places where the surfaces are all broken up. Then of course I go hiking on the AT and in the Smoky Mountains when I'm down there. So I need something that has cushioning and comfort no matter where I'm walking. I know it's a lot but if anyone can give me ideas of what to look for I would GREATLY appreciate it.Oh yeah, I have screws in my left knee and arthritis in my hips, knees, feet, ankles or anywhere else you can get it. I leave on vacation June 9th so I'd like to get them within the next few weeks so I have a chance to get used to them. Thanks
