In brief: Good stiff shoe

Limiting movement of the foot is important in improving foot comfort with arthritis.
Loof for a thicker soled, stiffer shoe with good support in the arch. Avoid barefoot ang thin soled, flimsy shoes. Dr l.

Make sure you are wearing a good supportive shoe with a semi-rigid or rigid orthotic. NSAIDS are helpful.
