Help my feet hurt!(7 Posts)
I have Achilles and Plantar fasciitis issues. Walked today for about 3 hrs for a work site visit and my feet are killing me. Please I need suggestions for non frumpy cushioned wide-ish fitting boots that will protect my poor feet.
Fit flop boots kind of work but bar one style (rally high top but weird sparkly heel) I hate them all. Quite like the Ecco high top style trainers but are they wide fitting? Want something casual winter trainer boot type to wear with wfh jeans and leggings but nothing obviously orthopaedic! Like ugg high tops but imagine they are narrow and not comfortable.
Have just hobbled up to bed. Help please!
I have this too; really gets in the way of life, sometimes. However, I’ve found that some amazingly ugly but comfy fleece lined crocs (definitely for indoors only!) really provides support for walking around the house and keeping my feet warm.
Then Ecco or Clark’s boots or M&S wife fit leather boots. Sketchers are really helpful or Superga leather trainers look a bit smarter with a dress or trousers. If they’re good enough for the Duchess of Cambridge, then I reckon they’ll do for me too!
One thing I have noticed is that the pain is always worse when my feet are cold, so I have plenty of fluffy socks. I hate Ugg boots but will wear them out if it’s really cold, as they definitely give me some relief.
Oh yes...Adidas Gazelles too. I can walk miles in them.
I have wide feet, so all of those should be OK for you.
Do you wear proper work boots on site?
The best inbuilt arch support I've found is in work boots, just the twenty quid steelies have better structure than any fashion brand - and they're wider to enable you to wear lovely thick anti blister socks from an outdoor sports supplier.
Other than that, men's hiking boots with Vibram soles are incredibly comfortable.
I get men's size 6, usually, which is roughly the same as a woman's 7 extra wide fitting, but is far better at hugging the heel and not squashing my toes.
Brilliant looking at the Ecco high tops now. Just wore normal Clark's DM style yesterday - walked round a big area of London looking at development opportunities so not actually working construction site. They were previously my favourite boots!
Can't do sketchers - too ugly - but yes have superga. Vans seem wider and more cushioned too (compared to evil converse!)
Are these totally hideous? Has anyone tried this brand?
I think ECCO are quite narrow ..
Am following as need something like this too....I have ugg biker boot style and they are great width wise but definitely not a walk around for hours...
I also have a pair of heavenly that have been great although haven't looked recently for styles
Oh no re Ecco. Was quite liking these.
