Re: Try Birks

Birkenstocks have helped me tremendously. Birkenstock not only makes great sandals, but they also have many varieties of closed-toe shoes. The best comment I can offer about the cushioning issue is one that I heard from a salesperson in a Birkenstock store. She said, 'Your feet need support, not cushioning.' For me, she was 110% on target. Because your feet hurt, you THINK they need cushioning -- when what they may need the most is arch support. Birks provide that and I think they might make a good beginning for your husband.

As for the cortisone -- 3 shots in 3 months is a lot. There are many more things to try, as you will see when you go through Scott's book.
