    I use a Spenco orthotic insert in my New Balance sneaks. New Balance MW811 model that has room for the orthotics as well as my wide feet. Make sure you invest in your feet. They will thank you for it, aand of course you'll feel better throughout the day.

    I have been thru 10 different pair of nursing shoes trying to ease my horrible foot pain. Our foot doc said I have heel spurs plantar fasciatis (sorry about spelling). Our anesthesia doc gave me a catalog with the best thing to ever hit my feet!!! These clogs are called "CROCS". They are the weight of those foam packing "peanuts" and finally my feet no longer throb. Although they are not particularly stylish, I now own 4 pairs. Word has spread thru our hospital, and dozens of nurses now wear these amazing shoes. They sell for 29.99 in most catalogs and I have seen them at Dicks Sporting goods for the same price. However, there is a knock-off version at payless for 14.99 which are identicle with the exception of being a tad more narrow. Try them, you will NEVER, EVER want to wear a "normal" shoe again.

    Good Luck, Terri P
    Crocs work well for most people but I'm not one of them. They don't really make much of a difference for me.

    sounds just like Plantar fasciitis.

    friends, friends, friends..... let me introduce you to the one single thing that has changed my life.

    This was recommeded to my by a fellow nurse for relief from hot flashes. It works very well.... then lo and behold after taking it for about two weeks I woke up one morning and NO FOOT PAIN. None, it was gone.

    Made my husband try, his feet just kill him, and it worked.

    ok, no more suspense, Do you want to know what it is?

    Soy milk.

    the most disgusting thing to drink on this planet
    it really is bad



    I would rather die than skip this now essential part of my day.

    I beg you to try it, just one small glass every day. I promise you will become a believer. ( the chocolate tastes a tad bit better)

    Gahhhhhhh....

    I can't even stand *real* milk.

    But I can't stand foot pain anymore so even **I** will give it a try.

    How long before it works? Or if it doesn't work, do I get to come back and yell? :roll And how much is a SMALL glass? An ounce? LOL

    Can I hijack this post by offering my condolences then asking about heel cracks? How do you get them to heel(pun intended)?

    Ohhh, I know!

    First use a product to remove dead skin. It is like sandpaper but made FOR feet. Get rid of the thick, dead skin and then use LOTS of lotion.

    Keep the healthy live skin supple with a quality lotion such as Eucerin or sween cream. Something without all the crap, scents, and preservatives. Just plain basic cold cream (also great for the tissue around skin ulcers).

    Try that and see what happens. I think you'll be happy with the results.

    Hate milk & soy milk also!. If you're interested, I found a way to get it (Silk Soy Milk) down in larger quantities-make a blender shake with it using a scoop of slim fast powder or instant breakfast & ice. With 16oz/d, it took about 2 weeks for me to notice an effect. Watch out for the side effect, remember that there's soy BEANS in that stuff

    16 OUNCES is a SMALL glass? Darl'en, you are starting to talk like a man who can't measure! You know how long one minute of football time REALLY is?

    SMALL? I'm over here thinking maybe small means a juice glass, you know, about 4 ounces. SIXTEEN OUNCES? Gahhh... I don't think I could do it. And the bean effect... oh my.

    No, I mean about an 8 oz glass, really, small.

    Just try it , please!

    P.S. I've had no problems with the "bean" thing.
