Help me! I am 7 months pregnant and have done something to one foot that is causing lots of pain in the arch (think from carrying a heavy rucksack), then today I've stubbed my little toe so badly I can't put shoes on. I don't normally wear trainers but think I need to get something with proper arch support and enough room for my toe. Sensible but stylish, if it exists please!
Yep could be plantar fascilitis, second the sketchers go walks and vionics (vionics are v expensive though). In meantime ice a red bull size can and roll it under your foot. Also stand on bottom step with heels hanging off edge and flex feet. These are the exercises I do to ease the pain. You could also get supportive orthotics from Boots (but don't put them in the sketchers if you get them as you'll wreak the sketchers)
Thank you all. Think I'm going to find the nearest place that stocks sketchers in my lunch hour. Still have to get to work tomorrow (London commute into city), so will have to suck it up for then but will just use more buses than normal. Good shout for slip ons!
Are you desk based? If so you might need to get an assessment done on desk & chair that the proportions are correct for you. I got my plantar fascilitis due to injurying foot trying to get in comfortable sitting position at my desk (long hours at weird height desk & inappropriate sized chair with crap foot support.) Work had to get me a special tilting foot rest.
