Can be: I personally love new balance. However, what i love most about them is the many types of shoes they make for many types of feet, as well as insoles. Plus living near the outlet is nice. The most important thing is finding a pair of shoes of any brand and/or orthotics that work for you. Footwear experts, especially at stores that cater to runners...Or doctors specializing in foot/ankle can help. ...Read more

You may need surgery: At your age, special insoles (or also called, orthosis) may not correct your problem-- and, it may only manage your deformity. Correction of your "pigeon toe" may only be achieved by surgery. Thus, please consider checking out 2 or 3 reputable foot-and-ankle surgeons. ...Read more

My feet have been hurting while walking. Getting new shoes didn't help. Insoles & arch support made it worse. What else can I do?

See a Podiatrist: Sounds like you have done all that is reasonable on your own. You did not mention your weight, which could be a major factor in causing pain in the feet, especially if you are standing hours on a hard surface. A podiatrist would be a wise next step, or even your primary care physician. Physical therapy and better orthotics may be the solution. Yoga stretching may be recommended. Good luck. ...Read more

Why my heels hurt when I walk, I just started new job where I wear safety shoes, one they gave started the pain but then IV brought my own ones?

Try shoe inserts: Safety shoes can be unyielding. You need to have a cushion for your feet and since your job requires these shoes, go to any drug store and buy an inexpensive foam shoe insert. You most likely will be surprised at the relief they give. ...Read more
