any good make bands that stop over pronation, for narrow foot.

any dress shoes like comfy and flat.

current have kneen water 'proof boat shoes'

need pretty shoes to replace fav. high heel shoes.

guys i in oz so brand name or online shops would be great.


  • Boat/Water shoes are the BEST - for me. My back LOVES them. But my feet sweat in them so bad that they stink REALLY bad lol So bad hubby threw them out :(

    I would need to buy 1 pair a week to keep the smell away lol ;)

    Plus in the winter - brrrrr - cold cold feet.
    L1 - S2 "gone" useless in 1 way or another. DDD. RA. Bone Spurs. Tons of nerve damage/issues. Stenosis. Both knees replaced. 50 yrs old. I had a great fall (hence my user name) at age 41 and it has been a domino effect every since.
  • I bought my first pair of Rockports a little while ago....I cant say enough good things about them. They are the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn.

    Yes it is sad not to be able to wear ANY size heal , last week I went out with my sister and I have these heals that are an inch maybe an inch and a half , my husband asked me if I was really going to wear them and me being stupid wore them. Somehow my heal got caught up in the rug , I want hanging out of the car door and I am twisted and my sister who has 2 plutonium knees and she ihas chronic pain like I do, she is 55 and I am 62. What I have learned from this is wear FLATS , I was very stupid to wear heals, so I wear Sketchers and shoes of that sort.
  • Sketchers with GogaMat insoles are the best, most comfortable shoes I have ever had. Not the memory foam ones, those disappointed me 2 or 3 times before I learned to just stop getting them. GogaMat is seriously like walking on a yoga mat all day long, and they're getting closer and closer to designs I could actually wear at work per dress code!

    I'm not sure these would help with pronation problems but I suffer from arthritis in my toe joints and wearing a normal shoe is pure agony. So I buy online from Dr Comfort my daily walking tennis shoes which are specifically designed with extra vertical space in the toe area for people with arthritis and diabetes. They help me a LOT... and they have lots of different dress and casual styles to choose from for both men and women.
