Sugest a tennis shoe following shock wave therapy

Posted by Marcy on 3/30/03 at 18:04 (114936)

I have just had shock wave therapy for heel spurs on Tues. My family & I have a 10 day trip to DisneyWorld the first week in June 2003.
What would you recommend for a walking/cross training shoe following surgery? I want to be able to get around the amusement parks without reversing the effects of the shock wave treatment.

Thank you. Sincerely,
Marcy U.

Marcy - Both of the pods I have seen have recommended a good 'motion control' shoe. I wear New Balance 587s. They are pretty expensive (over 100 dollars), but when shoes are discussed on this board, the New Balance shoes are said to be an excellent choice. However, you might also want to consider a scooter, just to ensure that your feet continue to heal.
