Btw, I went to my last dr. appointment wearing my eastlands.. the dr. asked about my tenners and i reported that my feet are much more comfortable and my ankles too.. in my eastlands.. she shrugged her shoulders and said 'go for the comfort & what works for you'...
Darn those 350 dollar orthodics.. *L*
Smilin'.. and damnit.. i will not let this get to my good foot! Those who are just beginning to go through the PF ordeal, do yourself a favor and do not let the good foot take the brunt of the not so good one.
Ah.. always reflective when i post here.
Cheers to Health & Happiness.
Where do you get Eastlands? (and about how much?)
Yesterday though, I was trying on Naots and met a woman who said she had been wearing Birks for more than 20 years. Never had a problem with her feet; said she wears Birks about 90% of the time, Naots if she can't get Birks. Think I'm going to go spring for a pair of Arizonas and see how they are.
I live in southwest Florida and got mine at a chain called Fashion Footwear. They had 3 styles of low footbed sandals, $44-49. (They also make a lot of 'standard' type shoes which I wouldn't get. The ones I got and I think Laurie too have strong arch support and low footbed). Eastland is on the net. They don't list retail distributors, but they show several styles of shoes, sandals and enclosed. I wrote them a letter explaining about my PF and why I thought the low footbed/high arch support helped, and asked: 1) if they have a catalog, would they send it; 2) how to tell which if any of the enclosed toe shoes have the arch support and low footbed. Waiting for a response. I think the next best solution is to just call shoe stores and ask. I have 2 pairs of Eastlands now -- but after Xmas, I'm going to the Birk store. Time to lay down REAL cash and see if the best give me relief. Have a happy holiday Kathy.
