I have suffered with sore feet due to arthritis since my teens. But I have been able to manage the problem by wearing good quality leather shoes ,usually homyped or similar, when I worked,and now I wear the brilliant Podiatrist-designed Orthaheel footwear available at my chemist and Athlete's Foot. I always wait for them to come on special and then I buy a couple of my favourite styles! I also soak my feet in a huge bucket of arm water with lots of Epsom salts which is heavenly!
Actually right this minute. Have been walking around the shops comparing items and prices. Because it is also hot, my feet have swollen and I'm sitting with my feet up waiting for them to feel a little better before I get up to soak them. A massage would be fabulous but the grand kids are out so I will have to make do with soaking them.
If I have been walking around all day, yes. Surprisingly, I had some great shoes when I was nursing, and I didn't get sore feet, just tired feet. I would walk kilometres every day and only sit at lunch. Meal breaks were compulsory due to the demanding work. We all helped each other. Worked as a great team.
For my 'doing the shopping', & 'mall mooching', which I love to do, I wear good quality, measured-up for shoes from 'The Athlete's Foot', as well as thick cotton socks.
As our feet 'carry' us, I believe that as above is cheaper, than having to seek medical attention, if feet sore.
I also purchase comfortable shoes for any wearing occasion, these days.
High heels are now just a distant, fond memory for me!
I walk 6-10 km every day so my feet usually ache a bit when I come home. A footbath generally eases it though. When my son is visiting me he always gives me a fantastic foot massage - I feel like I'm walking on air after an hour of that!
