TTS-need some info

Posted by Sherrie on 2/17/03 at 09:26 (109447)

Hi,Just wondering what the best type of shoes to wear for tts? I have custom made orthotics but they really hurt the outside of my ankle and the tops of my feet. I have heard to get birkenstocks. I went to their website and saw a shoe called orthopeadic- wondering if anyone has tried them or just get regular birks ( the deep heal cup is what I need correct?)Are the birkies good for around the house? Please let me know what you think is best. Thankx, Oh does anyone know a good doc in Md. who deals with tts? Sherrie

Sherrie,

I'm not sure what shoe to get for tts (I wear New Balance) but if you haven't make sure you post this in 'Inserts/Orthodics/shoes board'

Good Luck

Marty

I found this board last fall. After lirking for awhile I began to post. I was introduced to birkenstock through this board. I now own 4 pairs What a difference in my calves and ankles. I am not saying the birks alone made a difference but I will never wear any other shoe. I have a pair of superbirkies, loafers and annapolis along with a walking shoe. Wouldn't be without them. The company was very good about returns, excellent service.

I went to a shoe store run by a perdothist (ones who make orthotics), told him my problems, and the Dansko clog was recommended. Did the same thing for my daughter (who has feet problems) and now I send my son & husband (who don't have feet problems) for the best shoes for their feet. You might try and find a shoe store in your area run by a perdothis. My impression is most communities have such a stores. While they cater to people with feet problems, the school selection includes sneakers (but only the good ones), boots, etc. as well as custom-made shoes and such.
