Yesterday I tried on my first pair of Birks. Although I find them ugly, I am ready to try anything. They felt very stiff and the sole felt hard. My feet feel very sensitive so I was afraid to spend that much money without further thought. My concern is that the Birks will cause my feet to be more sensitive. Also, I have read that the kind without the backstrap are the most helpful for PF. Does anyone find this to be true or are the ones with backstraps just as helpful?

I have to buy something because everything I own (all I own are regular shoes) hurts/bothers my feet. I am a new sufferer and I find that this problem is going to be very expensive. Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
