There is truth to this.

I encountered a case before where the pain comes when walking, standing and sitting causes no discomfort. Variety of reasons comes to mind, the more prominent being the shoes having too high a heel, and/or the soles still being too stiff.
It may also be an exisiting condition aggravated by said reason(s). IMHO, consult a podiatrist if in doubt.
Walking was the big culprit.

The shoes were a pair of Bostonian somethingorothers I got a few months back. Talked to a doc I know and got the issue resolved with the same pair of shoes and a little bit of kinesiotape to fix the tracking of my knee. Seems to be working well today.
Comfort, OTOH, is still missing. Stiff leather and lack of a good cushion. Any suggestions?
