I wore Scholls many many years ago, and eventually loved them, but they took ages to get used to, and when I first got them I thought I had made a mistake, BUT it was a bit of a fashion thing then, and all my friends wore them, so ....!
More recently, I've had some Ecco shoes that just lasted and lasted for years, so the initial expense was definitely worth it. I don't have any at the moment, but will wait until this foot thing has been properly diagnosed before I do any more shoe shopping.
I'm now waiting for an appointment to go for an x-ray, to confirm whether there is an actual spur or not.
Keep smiling, fellow Bigfoots, If anyone annoys you, stand on their toes.
Yes, Dr Scholls - but when I wore them all those years ago as I mentioned they were a fashion sort of thing, can you believe it! They were the very plain wooden shaped base, with a one inch wide, approx, leather strap across the front. They were difficult to get used to, because you had to grip with your toes to hold on to these rather heavy solid 'flip-flops'. I had a pair of them for many years, but didn't often wear them outdoors after a while. I would get home from work or wherever and change into them to clump around the house, they were incredibly comfortable.
Now I'm getting used to the new Birks for clumping around the house, and also the inserts for putting into my shoes for the big wide world, and they are even more comfortable than I remember the Scholls. But, my memory may not be what it was. And it was never very much!
