I am pretty much of a shoe freak-but I also have "crunchy" toes,so now I only buy good shoes.
In the summer,I pretty much live in my Chacos!

I have to be so extra careful with shoes. Just the thought of any tennis shoes makes me hurt. From Sketchers to New Balance, to I don't know, hurt with trying to get my foot in! I have RA toes that are so scrunched up, that they tend to touch the top of the shoes and then on the outside balls of the foot, I have nodules too, and that hurts to get in. So to say the least, the shoe has to wide and flexible, with a good arch. I love my Ruff Hewn Mary Jane shoes that I wear every day but they're getting worn out. I bought another pair to replace them and just have to work them in a little more and they'll be a treasure to me too. I feel that if I really worked with a good tennis shoe, I could make it work, but my Ruff Hewn ones were alot more quick to work for me. There sure is a difference in Clark's too. My last pair were heavenly compared to other Clark's I tried on. Of course, mine had an excellent arch, whereas some of the other Clark's hardly have any. I think alot of the companies vary. We just have to keep looking. It's so hard for me to buy online because of the not being able to try on first. Good luck to us all!

Thanks for the heads-up Kammak!!

My feet were the absolute WORST part of my rheumatoid arthritis body until about 4 years ago when I discovered Skechers SHAPE UPS! They're turned up at the heels and look almost like "rocking shoes." It took me about 5 minutes to get used to them and then it was full speed ahead! They have NOTHING to do with toning. BTW, I get the kind for "work" because my thought is that they may be a bit more stable.

LOVE MY SHAPE UPS!! emoticon

Thanks for the heads up ladies! I've always thought about getting a pair because they look like they would feel sooo good. Bummer. I do however have a pair of Earth sandals that I live in... the soles on them are slightly elevated up from heel to toe and when I tell you they feel incredible... I am so not kidding!

I just wanted to send a word out about Skechers tone ups
I love Skechers shoes and they have been great with my arthritis especially the
Lite shoes but the tone ups have really aggravated
my arthritis to the point as to where I am
Going to give them away. I have another friend
Who tried the tone ups and had to get rid of them
As well due to her arthritis (I wasn't aware of this when
I bought mine) anyway just a heads up so no
One gets in the same situation I am.
