    Yes I have heard of Dr Comfort shoes and I hate them! But thanks for the suggestions, ladies!

    I now have great pleasure in announcing I only have 6 weeks left to wait! :dancy:

    Oh boy, I am finally seeing this thread- I'm sorry Jo. I hope the next 6 weeks are with less of the painful flares and will go quickly.
    @Celle your shoes look so cute! They would go with a lot of things, too.

    Back in May I bought a pair of ASIC Gel Kayano 25s for walking and my trip to Scotland. They have a great footbed and a special heel along with a guardrail to help with over pronation. As a young child I over pronated, wore corrective shoes and now my left foot has begun to over pronate again. They might be good for your recovery. I did go up a half size to have extra space when walking and there was no break in period.

    Please stop talking about shoes, ladies. I know you mean well but all the ones you are showing depress me!

    @Josephine Just read your thread. I am sorry that you are going through this. You have been an adviser to so many and I hope you take comfort in knowing you have made a difference to people who are in the throes of some of the worst days of their lives.

    May God Bless you with healing.
