Sneakers offer relief

Posted by Heather on 6/24/99 at 00:00 (008094)

I have tried on and used MANY brands of sneakers but finally found a wonderful pair right from the moment I put them on! They are called New Balance - cost around $60 - I chose a wide width. I wish I could wear them in the shower! They have offered great relief after 7 months of pain. Purchased them at Meijer Dept. store.

Heather,

What style of New Balance have you bought? I have heard they are excellent but am not sure what kind to get. Do you have and insert you wear with these or do you wear them just as you bought them?

Don't know what works for Heather but I LOVE my New Balance 850 Cross Trainers. Best investment I ever made!

I wear NB 586 with a heel cushion. I have custom orthotics and can remove the footbed and put them in. Unfortunately, once you remove the flimsey footbed there is really nothing of substance left.

I wear New Balance 990 running shoes. I leave the removeable footbed in and put my orthodics under it. They told me that the running shoes were lighter weight than the walking shoes. I love them!
