Is there anything you can get to put in the back of your shoes to stop them hurting ?
Some great ideas , thank you... I have very tricky feet which don't like heels at all.. I spend my days in converse ( but only he ones with a padded heel) I'd love to wear heels but they hurt so much .. I thought I would try a new year wearing them more often and need a plan for this to happen ... I will attempt all the suggestions until I find one that works ..
I thought I had a heel spur, it made wearing 'normal' footwear almost impossible, I was resorting to anything soft (Skechers/trainers/slippers) or sling backs.
I decided to bite the bullet, and saw a surgeon to get it removed. It turned out that somehow my Achilles' tendon was involved in the problem, and ended up having the spur removed, and a hook inserted into my Achilles to keep everything together and working properly.
I spent a few months after the op in footwear's 'twilight zone' but once I was properly recovered I never looked back.
I googled heel spur and I don't think I have this , it's just the skin the shoes rub against.. I wore my quite high shoe boots last night dancing and they were fine . I have ordered a few of the options below to try on other heels .
Also try giving the shoes a good bending. Fold the back down and inwards to "break" the stiff insides, and repeat a few times until they become more flexible. I have been known to take a hammer to the back of shoes.
specialsubject - yes men do have this problem too.
