Comfort Creature

For the past five years I have been looking for shoes that don't make my feet ache. I don't have a cushy job where I sit on my butt all day (no offence). Working in the hospital and in the pharmacy, I tried every kind of shoe to get rid of the discomfort. I even tried Dr. Scholls inserts but they give temporary relief. This cute shoe on the right seems to have great reviews. Apparently with the weird looking coil at the heel it doesn't hurt as much to be on your feet. I wonder how much they cost? There are only three stores that sell it in mn and the closest is on France Ave. So as soon as I can get myself down there and purchase a pair, I will definately let y'all know if my feet have found a match. The shoe is known as Z-coil. Lonesome dreamer made me think about shoes when she discussed scrubs in her blog. Working in the healthfield, I feel I have to be comfortable in order to give proper care. If my scrubs make me feel constricted and my feet hurt, I won't pay much attention to the patients. So, anything that make me comfortable makes my job easier and mood cheerier.

Looking forward to hearing your review! My feet are killing me all the time with the running and I have some flatness too :). I had the Nike ones that had coils and all and they worked great for a couple of weeks but my feet went back to the pain and fatigue.

Every time I buy a new pair of shoes ,I have this dream of going out and walking with out pain(when that dream comes true I'll let u know)but that shoes looks amazing, if what they r saying is true!!!
As a teacher in training sitting on my butt all my day is not EVEN an option. I'm also on a hunt to find suitable shoes .Good luck 4 both of us

SD, about time! I thought you had gone underground or something.

I must say those trainers look ugly. Then again, am not a trainer person. Don't think I have worn a pair since I was 17. LoL..sitting on ur arse all day has some benefits, I guess.

Good to see you back, dear.

I need some good shoes in general. I only have sandals and high heels...yikes! I've recently have had some shooting pains on the soles of my feet...ouch.
