I like the new rave in tennis shoes, they are the shoes that supposedly exercise your calves and legs. The bottoms are kind of rounded. They are soft and cushiony and feel really good on my feet. This is NOT an advertisement for them, I just found that they work for me. Wish I could wear them to work. The brand I bought is Sketchers. Very expensive, but I've spent a fortune on shoes that hurt, and these do not so I felt it worth the price. They also have a sandal and a "baby jane" style of shoe. Good luck.

I also use New Balance. If you are on Medicare you can get a discount on New Balance. I think Medicare will pay up to 80%. Not sure if other insurance will give discounts.

I have spent $1000's on different shoes and have yet to find the perfect pair. I'm using burkenstocks now. They are fairly good.

I use nothing but New Balance. I find the running or walking styles better than the tennis styles for a general shoe. If you have wide feet, or feet that sometimes swell, it is nice that many NB styles come in 5E widths. They are expensive, but I find they last for years and hold up better than other brands of sneakers I have tried.

New Balance Tennis Shoes are great, but if can't afford them, there is a brand at Walmart called Earth Spirit Shoes. They are wonderfully extra cushioned and have several styles. If can't find in any stores near you they do have a website that you can order from also. Most shoes are under $25

The American Diabetes Association recommends using New Balance if you can afford it. If there is a Shopko near you, they get WONDERFUL sales on name brand shoes. That is how I am able to afford new brand with a family of five and very limited budget. Otherwise, look for a good support short with arch supports, breathing room, and flexible comfort. Like tooth brushes, our shoes also have a time limit. I buy a new pair every 6 months or so depending on how they are feeling. Trust and listen to your feet. They will tell you…

I have found that "foot Solutions" orthodic inserts have helped, I have been using them for a couple years. The cost is under 200 for the inserts (most insurance companies will cover the cost) By the way, beautiful Cavalier pic, your dog?
