I tried the WalMart Dr. Scholl's machine, and bought the cheap ($50) orthotic it prescribed. I've never had the prescription type, but I have received a lot more relief from them than the general shoe inserts that claim to help.

I have to take a look at the Dr. Scholl's.
I bought a pair of New Balance Cross trainer with the proper width (anyone want to buy a pair of 1 yr old New Balance 11 EE??) and then went to a medical supply store where I bought a fitted pair of orthotics for about $50.00 (probably the same type of thing as the Dr. Scholls).

I was on the field for 3 hrs last week / no problem.
I also used them on a 4 day vacation to Pittsburgh and have a 3 game series scheduled Saturday.
They seem to have done the trick.

I picked up a pair of cluncky full support shoes (also with an orthotic arch support) for everyday, so the New Balance can take their place as my full time base shoes.

Now I have to see if I need to replace my plate shoes with a wider version and support them.
I'll find out this weekend.

You know, I am not sure these jokes even deserve a rimshot.

foot pain

I experience foot pain pretty constantly and have struggled to find shoes that would help me alleviate the pain. Well, i have to say that I have found them. They fit well. They have reduced my heel pain as well as my fasciitis symptoms. I can walk much easier and longer now . So happy I got these shoes! orthofeet do the job!

Among other things, I'll be checking closer to make sure the shoes are fitting properly and paying more attention to arch support.

I've bought all my shoes on line before, but I think I'll be a good shopper and make sure I have a good fit before I go for it.
I don't anticipate much problem with the base shoes.
Don't know where to walk in for plate shoes except Honigs in Ft. Lauderdale - about 2.5 hrs away...
Honig’s in Ft. Lauderdale May have closed. They are under new ownership and have seen reports that they are closing all location except main office which I believe moved to Colorado..

Go to a real shoe store, not shoe carnival and get fitted for the correct size, double check on the width. Then you can purchase online. Find a Stride Right or something to that nature.
