I've had PF for nearly two years, had two shots which helped for awhile but the pain kept coming back. I practice yoga to keep in shape without damaging my feet, it's good for stretching my feet (and everything else) and I'm sure it's keeping me sane since I can't walk and hike like I used to (15 miles or so a week pre PF days).
Recently my pain has been releived, although I am not doing anything different except paying attention! Yahoo!
Anyway, regarding shoes...I've been wearing Birks for about 25 years, they are what I wear when I'm not working and I love them. For long walks or long times on my feet I wear Nikes cross trainers and the elevated heel is very comfortable. For work I need to dress well, I wear Aerosoles, they are fashionable and comfortable and do not cost a bundle. Aerosoles has a website, check it out if you need dressier shoes that offer good heel cushion.
Best to all of us and thanks for all the contributions!
