Re: HIGHER HEEL??

I have been reading the board for awhile now and have been most interested in what everyone has to say about shoes. I was diagnosed with PF only months ago and am still experimenting with many of the things that so many of you have already tried. (PT, orthodics, etc.)Yet while awaiting results (a miracle would be nice!)and doing my 'exercises' I still have to get up and work everyday. Thus, my search for the perfect pair of shoes continues...Ironically, I used to sell shoes and here is some info that I discovered: Another brand called "Ariat" is good. These shoes were designed by two women equestrians. They have a double shank (this is the steel part of the shoe that lends support) a padded insole, and a rubber sole, most with about a 1 to 1 1/2" inch heel. They look pretty good: kind of like little clog riding booties! Cost: around $125. My podiatrist also reccomended "Saucony" athletic shoes...
I would also like to say that I am so thankful I found this site!!!
