Mandylubug Posted July 16, 2012 Share Posted July 16, 2012 So, my husband has a weird foot. He had surgery two years ago on his knee. He learned that during his stride, he rolls his ankles inward and the shape of the top of his foot is more angled than the average foot. He was given inserts to wear. He likes the support of the inserts but they actually make the sides of his feet hypersensitive and painful at times while running or working. IF he doesn't wear inserts, not only does his arch ache and burn while running, the top of his foot feels overly strained and sometimes pops, especially if he is hopping out of a cargo bin of a plane (ramp agent at airport) He had a specialist while he was in the Army tell him to buy just "any ole insert" and that would do it. However, with his foot issues, his history of knee surgery and his desire to run, we are seeking a way to customize his shoes in addition to potentially adding inserts. He hasn't seen a specialist since he left the military on disability. We aren't sure if he should be evaluated again and by which form of specialist, or if he should find some form of custom shoe option?! Opinions and suggestions appreciated :D Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
