After almost a year of constant foot pain, I finally found a pair of shoes that fit my needs. I purchased a generic pair of MBT Shoes. They are a multi-layered, curved sole that accomplishes a natural but uneven walking surface. This technology is meant to make the core strengthening muscles more active, creating better posture and increasing shock absorbtion for all of the joints. It also makes wearing the shoes quite a unique experience, and a bit of a workout. For me, it really takes the pressure off my heals, where I experience most of my pain.
The generic shoe comes from K-Mart, for the small price of $25. The original MBT shoes are sold for around $200!!! They are quite ugly, but I guess I can have ugly shoes, as long as I can walk without too much pain.
So, for you health care workers out there, I would highly recommend trying them out. Google them and do some research, you will be amazed.
Alex is off to another Speech Meet tomorrow and I am off to spend some time with friends, and watch my nephew play his last home basketball game.
Have a great weekend!
