I officially have a Dodgy Knee. sad

Oh, dear heels. I love them so. But they seem to make it worse. This is sad. Very sad. Since I am 5'3".

However. Cheer me up with fantastic - and reasonably priced! - flattish shoes and boots.

Also the shoes have to stay on without me doing that toe grippy thing.

If it's any consolation, I also have trouble with this.... can't do heels as SPD returned 5 months after DD born. So watching this thread with interest (although I can't afford new shoes at the mo!)
Hugs to you. Hope you find some nice new shoes.

moocowme Thu 22-Oct-09 20:15:45 i buy mine on ebay from the states. some of their lines are endorsed by the american podiatry association. i can't wear normal shoes due to arthritis but can wear almost anything they sell, believe me they are waaaayyyyy more comfortable than anything else i have ever had. oh and i can go still looking reasonably ok.

Cappster, I spied some v. nice flat shoes in Jones Bootmakers recently, so if you have a branch near you I suggest you have a peek.

Hope your knee problem clears up soon...
