need advice on shoes..

Posted by Sue R on 8/15/00 at 07:51 (025465)

I have a very high arch and narrow foot. I'm wearing NB 990 running shoes with a thick over-the-counter insole (relatively supportive arch). I've seen comments on shoes being too flexible. Can anyone share their feelings here? What do you recommend? Remember, my right foot is pretty bad and I can't wear Birks. Too rigid (like my custom made orthotics).

Thanks!
Sue

Sue - see my post below on shoes advice for post-epf surgery. If your New Balance do not have a ROLLBAR feature, then they are not stiff enough to prevent pf pain. Yesterday I ordered the NB 587 - it ihas the rollbar.
