The perfect shoe? Does it exist? What's your favorite?

I have high arches, I walk on my heels (which causes a lot of heel pain), I have bad knees, and just overall small finicky feet. I want something I can walk, run, exercise, do whatever in without foot/knee pain. I want something that is especially good on my heels. It doesn't have to be pretty, but it can't be bulky (because they look funny on my small frame). Lightweight would be good. No pink.

So what shoe works best for you?



Oh yeah, edited to add: I try on shoes in the store and they are so comfortable and then after a week they make my feet hurt. So unfortunately, I can't just go to a store and see what feels good.

Have you tried on shoes at the store while you shop? You might get a better idea of how they feel when worn longer.



The best time to try shoes is in the afternoon/evening, when body fluid has had time to travel down to your legs and make your feet fuller.



Inserts ad insoles are also an affordable option to make a okay shoe into a great shoe.



You can also go to a specialty shoe store. Like Mossiers or Red Wing shoes. They can accurately assess your foot dimensions. It could be that you are not in the average sizing charts. Most discount stores like walmart offer normal, wide, with little to medium arch, with the occasional extra wide. Narrow hardly exists. If you have a average foot with a narrow heel like me, you're out of luck!



Your shoe size could be an issue too. Just like some cheap clothing lines like to take the modeled size, and just inch inches here and there, they may not take into account the changes in bodies dimensions as a size gets larger and smaller. Same could be said for shoes too.



If all else fails, you could see a podiatrist. They can determine if you have a medical condition such as inflammation of the arch or a heel spur which causes walking heel pain.



If they find nothing, it could be your posture. You might be able to get an appointment with a chiropractor to see about that. It might help your knees too, if they are not bad due to genetics or and old injury.



I hope that helps!
