Hi Lisa... welcome!

I've not been able to wear high heels for years :-( I'm only 32 and a bit "curvy" so could really benefit from the height. Kitten heels in the early 2000s were great but now the fashion is for sky scraping heels I don't have a chance. I was excited when wedge heels became fashionable again 'cos when I was 18 I had an amazing pair that I lived in. I went into every high street shop and the difference between the heel height and the sole height was just too much and threw me forwards making my knees hurt. I finally found a pair in office that are amazing - they are beautifully simple, elegant and go with everything and I walk a million times better in those than any other shoe I own as flats are litterally flat now and force me to put all my weight in my heels so that I waddle when I walk lol.

Unless you have arther, no-one understands that simple things, like buying shoes, is a nightmare.

That's why this forum is so great - people understand and can offer practical advice and great support.

Hope to see you on here again

hi lisa.... welcome i hope you find this forum as helpful as i have i to have just recently been diagnosed with pa it is a terrible disease and on days when im feeling really low i find reading and writing back to others on here really helpful, i cant wear heels and i have a wardrobe full on the highest heels you can imagine think i would be aswell selling them lol, i like louloubelle wear wedges if i feel i can they r much easier on your feet but most of time i wear flat it doesnt look to good wearing heels with 2 walking sticks lol. I am 34 and my pain started last year and has progressivly got worse throughout i have pain in every joint my feet,toes knees,hips,back,neck,shoulders,elbows(which just started becoming sore the other day),wrists,fingers, i have tried a few DMARD(disease modifying anti-rhuematic drugs) but as yet none has worked so it is kind of a waiting game to get on the correct meds i hope you find an improvement soon.... anything you want to ask i will try my best to answer but im sure there are plenty of the other guys on here that are only to willing to give out good advise
take care x
