Hi everyone :D

My feet are getting so bad with arther now that, besides being so painful, I have only one pair of shoes that I can fit (squeeze) onto my feet. :?

any tips on how to soothe sore feet? :roll:
and....

What kind of shoes do you wear? and where did you get them?

thanks,

Iris x :D

thanks Pols and delboy,

It kinda took me by surprise realising that none of my shoes fit as I've been sticking to the one pair of boots for months now....although I knew my feet were getting worse :oops:

Decided to look out shoes this morn now that spring is here (at last) only to find that I can't wear any of them.... x

thanks for the suggestions peeps.......

(you're right delboy it will likely be costly but hopefully worth it!)

Iris x

THANKS Toni that would be good....just saw you there xxx

Hi Iris,

Oh flower feet hurt don't they? I soak mine in either hot salt water if there is any broken skin or if not I use a concoction of white oils and hot water and for me it seems to help..... It may not be a good idea though if you have sensitive feet.

Shoes just hurt! Trainers are sometimes ok depending on the shape and angle of the souls but I live in frankenstein's boots now a days.... ( Del I so agree CAT boots are heaven :wink: ) Mine are full safety ones, not very fetching but act like splints us they are 50% metal and my cramp can't beat that! Will go look at Toni's bumped thread though cus well the boots and the Hunters are not so good for going out :lol: :lol: Luv and a ((( ))) Cris xx

Clarks! Clarks shoes everytime. You can get some really quite trendy ones in there, they are soft, flat and they do different width's. I'm quite a young trendy girl (no one can believe I have arthur when I tell them) I wear great clothes and everyone comments on my shoes!! Take a trip - you may be surprised. xx

I'm not really a shoe person, but have been planning ahead for my hip op. Thursday I went into well known shoe store and bought the most lovely pair of flat hush puppy sandles, they're heaven, like walking on air. They cost a packet, far more than I would normally pay, but well worth it. Just hope we have a nice summer so I can wear them. :? (if not, I'll wear them round the house). :lol:

i tend to go to the out let shop at doncaster they half price got boots for £35 and shoes £20 well worth it but for wedding last year had to pay full price for sandles but worth every penny as were never off my feet

soak in cold water if very hot and swollen or use ice pack in a towel

Hi Iris :)

I do not suffer with my feet especially (just in other places :lol: ) but I do have very wide feet and on one foot a bunion. I also take a large size. :( Over the past few years, purely for comfort all round, when on my feet, which is a lot, I wear MBTs (not the sandals) and Crocs. I have other shoes to wear when going out and trying to look more "stylish" :lol: :lol: but cannot wait to get back into the Crocs or MBT's. :D I have worn my MBT's so much that I had to send them away to be re-soled, end of last year, which is well worth doing if you have a pair but was a little lost without them, to say the least but it only took one week, door to door. :D

I hope you find something suitable soon,

Luv
Elna x

I have Cushion-Walk shoes with insoles in which help alot. I have had a ultrasound foot scan which shows up Morton's neuroma. i am finding it difficult to find summer shoes as I soon get problems with backless types. Have you tried insloes? I also have anti-inflam gel which can help with the burning feeling. Good hunting, I x

Kat Maconie shoes! They are brilliant - really attractive, fashionable and very comfy. I think you can get them at John Lewis. They are pricey but worth it. I also like MBTs and fitflops

Hi Iris
In summer I ware fly flots, the ones with Velcro so you can adjust them throughout the day , they are also cushioned, the wide fitting paver shoes are good for all year.
Love
