I've got the same issue with my right foot - tendonitis - mostly on the arch. I'll be in MK next week so I'll be able to try out my theory. I bought Nike cross-trainers from Dicks and bought custom inserts from Dicks too (you heat them up in the oven for 2 minutes, then put them in your shoes and put your shoes on so they'll custom fit).
I feel a supportive, broken in sneaker (not too old where there's no support) is the best. I was at DLR last summer with this issue and I would never have been able to make it through without the inserts - although it still hurt by the end of the day. I only had the cheap inserts from a drug store. I think the inserts are more important than the kind of shoe. Good luck!
Thanks for your advice. I am definitely going to try the inserts.
Hmm weird...2 people from CT who have foot tendinitis who love Disney! Mine is at the top of my foot though.
I'm a fan of a good pair of running shoes (nikes) paired with inserts and runners socks (there like towels on the bottom but with little holes on the tops which breath really well)
Not sure which brand I have but here is a link to a review on several socks:
You can usually find them at some department stores and most sports equipment stores.
Any soft soled-shoe (supposedly crocs included) can also get caught in escalators. Watch your step, or it could be your last!
- Go to a store with experienced sales personnel and have your foot evaluated. Be sure to tell them that you are a theme park warrior.
- The sales person will be able to recommend a line and style of shoe based on the evaluation. Listen to what they say and take their advice - even if the shoe they recommend cost more than you've every spent before. Just do it!
I started running over a year ago, and got fitted for the propper shoe. Now my foot still didn't feel right in the shoe. Well, as people said, socks make a world of difference. Got a good pair of Belega running socks, and I haven't looked back!!!!
