Tony, Before you give up on a job you want - have you tried Birks? They do make some full shoe styles and looking at the catalog I have I would suggest you try on some of them like the "Tacoma", "Nashville", "Pasadena", "Bodega", "Memphis", "Madera", "Trent", "Derby", or "Ontario" ... these are all style names that are birks with a full shoe rather than a sandal. At home and for all things except work I would recommend you wear the Arizona (no back strap) sandal. I have had no PF pain for about a year now. Started wearing the birks full time in May '97 and was almost all pain free by August. I also now take the glucosamine and the calcium with magnesium - those things got me to the 100% pain free part. I AM ON MY FEET IN A PRINTING SHOP ALL DAY ON CONCRETE FLOORS - Yesterday I worked from 7:50 a.m to 7:33 p.m. which is typical most days during the week and then I go in on Sat. alot to do overtime. My PF flare (with heel spurs developed on both feet) was a 4 yr. nightmare. The last year I was in constant pain all day, at night and no relief with NSAID's or anything would help. I tryed everything including cortisone shot, and you are right - previous to the birks everything else only helped temporarily. If you decide to get them feel free to contact me and I can give you some tips to speed up your healing. Good Luck - Diane R.
