So last week, I had a visit to the podiatrist who told me that I had a rather severe case of Plantar Fascitis. Basically, it is an inflammatory condition on the tissue on my heel and the arch of the foot. As a result, wearing shoes with non-rubber soles tends to be rather painful. And at my doctor's recommendation, I have just ordered custom insoles to cushion my feet. This basically makes it impossible for me to use any of my existing shoes because the insole simply makes the fit very tight and uncomfortable. My first thought was getting some Chelsea boots with rubber soles, or something similar (since I would need some ankle support). Have folks here had similar problems? Does anyone have any thoughts or recommendations? Thanks.
