Burning Feet

Posted by Dawn S. on 10/29/03 at 09:20 (135930)

Whenever I wear athletic shoes, I experience a burning sensation from the balls of my feet to the heel. However, when I wear my work loafers or casual tennis shoes, I do not get the burning sensation. What causes this burning and how can it be treated?

Hard to answer your question without knowing more. It could be the shape of the insole, the height of the heel, the snugness of the shoe, or the activities you perform while wearing the shoe. Try switching insoles, wearing the shoes laced less tightly, and even buying another pair of athletic shoes. By using a process of elimination, you should be able to figure out what's causing one pair of shoes to feel different from the rest.
