orthotics or better?

Doctors agree: My feet are the flattest. An arch collapsed in one foot but not the other. Highly recommended, expensive insoles are good for the first 1,000 feet but don't make any difference thereafter. I wear a splint at night and losing weight. Aside from amputation, what should I be investing in or spending my time doing?

Mild pain at first metatarsal

I started running a few months ago, and have now gotten to the point where I can (slowly! gradually!) increase my speed and distance. About two weeks ago, I started experiencing mild pain at the top of the arch on my left foot, what I believe to be the first metatarsal. [more inside]

please hope me find a pair of shoes

I have super high arches, a wide toe box, constant pain in my foot, and a weak ankle. Do you have any recommendations for a somewhat stylish but not-quite-formal dress shoe I can wear to work with slacks or khakis and a button-down shirt? I'm pretty butch and usually wear a leather loafer in a men's size 7.5 / women's size 9. [more inside]

What is this weird foot pain?

Three or four weeks ago I fell at work...and then days later, fell down some steps at home. I know, I'm coordinated like that. Ever since the falls I've had pain that goes across the top of my foot. It's been a while now and the pain isn't getting better...but it's not getting worse either. What could it be? [more inside]

Need comfy shoes for around the house

This seems like such a stupid question, but that's because I'm stupid about shoes and clothing. Our new house has laminate flooring, and it's killing my feet. I guess I'm used to the cushion that carpeting provides. I need some shoes I can wear around the house that have enough cushion that they'll prevent some of the foot pain I'm having. Difficulty: I hate wearing shoes in the house -- not for cleanliness reasons, but because I'd prefer to walk around in socks. Some kind of sandal would therefore be best, because it would be the least constricting. Also, I get really hot feet, so I need cool shoes. So, please, name that shoe, and tell me where to find it.

My feet hurt

I am looking for good sneakers to wear while exercising. I have high arches, small (size 6 women's) wide feet, and all the shoes I've tried don't stop the pain when I do lunges, jumping jacks, or yoga poses where I stand on one foot. [more inside]
