    I did a bit of running around with my Mom this afternoon, picking up the last few bit and bobs we need for the trip. And one of these stops included a shoe store.

    I've been having problems with the heel on my left foot for a few weeks now. I know what the problem is. And I know how to treat it, having treated many patients with the same issue over the past couple of years. Its plantar fasciitis.

    So...good bye Crocs (for now) and hello good walking shoes... These are what I bought...http://zapp.me/z7366296

    Anybody ever wear Keen? I've not hear of them until today. But so far, I like them very much...

    that is really painful, my mum and a friend have suffered from that. I hope they give you some comfort, i do like comfortable shoes- never have been able to wear anything dainty.

    I've not heard of them either, but they look pretty comfortable.

    What exactly is platar fasciitis? And why can't you wear Crocs with it?

    I suffer from the very same condition and I live in Birkenstocks, my crocs are OK for a short time but I certainly know it if I have worn them for more than a couple of days at a time. It's a major relief to get my Birks back on.

    Those look comfy though luvthemouse :p015:

    Tink it's the inflammation of the ligament type thing (sorry i am no doctor ) that stretches from the heel to the middle of the foot, causing pain in the underside of the heel and the arch.

    Mine was caused by going on a very long walk in inappropriate shoes :rolleyes008: that was over 3 years ago and I still suffer pain now if i wear anything over than Birkenstocks for any period of time, all the time I am wearing them I have no pain at all. I tend to even wear them around the house as bare feet is a no-no as I can feel the tension in my arches.

    Good explination!! Mine came from wearing really bad (but very cute) shoes at work for a couple of years. Then since I started working in the main hospital building, I'm on my feet for hours. I wear New Balance for work, but at home I was either barefoot, or in flip flops. Now, the pain is worse when I wear my flip flops, so I've had to give them up too. I just really needed to go with something that gives me good support. These seem to be doing the trick.

    To be perfectly honest, my weight really doesn't help matters either..:(

    Oh, Krista I hope you don't have problems at WDW with all the walking . If so, right in front of the main lobby of your resort, there are now ECV's for rent . Nice ones with canopies . Chris can push Bryce and you can wheel yourself .

    Thanks for the explanation. I have heard of this of course, just didn't know exactly what it was.

    Good that the right footwear helps though. I have a terrible time finding shoes that fit properly, give good support and don't contribute to my tripping. :sigh;
