on the birks wagon...Posted by Chris C on 2/06/99 at 00:00 (004550)
Just had to add my two cents re birks: they work. the info that comes with the shoes goes on about your feet needing support rather than softness; the analogy they use is a firm mattress vs. soft. this clicked for me. [a-duh moment] I finally got it. after wearing them a couple of days. I noticed relief rapidly. I also noticed how bad all my other shoes were in terms of support.
So take the plunge, our feet are now demanding attention in the only way they know how, with pain. so heed the call. try the birks for a week in the house. see if they work. It's not a magic bullet but every bit helps.
