Barbara, how comforting to know there are others stuck in lace up shoes. I also wear a 7 and have tried all kinds of shoes. Easy Spirit do seem to be the best. My family has a hard time believing I can't wear anything but sneakers right now. Cast is currently on left foot.

This is the first time that I have seen this message board. I am really glad to see that there are other people who have chronic problems with their feet. I was beginning to think that I was losing my mind. I am currently in my third cast since July on my right foot. As if having two carpal tunnel surgeries (right hand last Jan and left in March) wasn't enough, I was diagnosed with Tarsal Tunnel syndrome in June. I can really only wear tennis shoes, but even then I have to put heel pads in them with the centers cut out in order to be comfortable. I know that my doctor must think that I make all of this stuff up, but my God, who would want to wear casts.
Thanks for the info about the Easy Spirit shoes. I have often wondered if they are really as comfortable as the commercials state. I haven't worn dress shoes but twice in over a year.
