Sorry about that title, lol! It's just I feel so frustrated... Yesterday I went to buy new shoes for winter, a pair of really flirty and nice shoes, I thought I had found the right ones... I tried them on and everything was well. But after a while of walking in them I started to feel some pain... yes, my stupid little toe again!

I also seem to have some issues with the frontal part of my feet, no idea what is it! My mom said I should see an specialist, but I've so many appointments with other doctors already... :( There are girls who can wear whatever they want on their feet, but I can't! It's frustrating, because I just want to live a normal life!

Plus yesterday EVERYTHING in my body hurt, incluiding thighs, legs, soles, back, neck, knees... it was like a truck hit me! Today I feel a bit better, but my feet still hurt :(((

I also bought pair of very beautiful wench shoe last month, as we talk, a friend of mine is enjoying them because the pain in my legs could not allow me to where them for a whole day.

I have decide not to shop for shoes in the morning hours because in the afternoon, they will not fit. My feet almost swell daily so if I bit so its better to buy my shoes later in the day. That way the shoe will be of use to me for long.

I feel the pain. I have a closet full of heals i can't wear any more. I've even purchased two pairs of shoes (both wedges) over the last two years and have yet to wear them. Mosty because i dont go anywhere but the supermarket and i refuse to get all dressed up to go there. On the rare occasion i do put on a heal, i also have some nice cushy inserts that help the balls of my feet and my heal. So i won't allow myself to buy another shoe unless i can wear it every day, everywhere. It's depressing. I love shoes.

I have many shoes I can't wear anymore as well. All these cute flirty heels. I've replaced my heeled boots with riding boots because they have a flat heel. I was such a shoe collector too. It's actually sad, I have I bet..sixty pairs of shoes. I wear maybe about two or three regularly now.

:( I'm sorry you're having issues with your toe and with shoes!

Hi DeeDee! Thanks, and I must say I'm equally sorry to hear you've so many pairs of shoes you can't wear :( I know how frustrating it is! Have you noticed if some of your shoes fit you well? I've noticed I can no longer wear some of my old shoes :( Like for real! They don't fit! It's like my feet is one size bigger :( No idea what is going on! My feet in general are a wreck... one of my feet is so sensitive I can feel the internal seam of the shoe (above the heel). The frontal part of the sole is also problematic :( Do you have that problem as well?

Hi there :) I totally understand you! I have a really nice pair of boots (high heels) they're so trendy, but very painful to wear :( I need to get some inserts as well! It's kinda funny, because I never thought I'd need inserts! I heard my mom talking about hers a few years ago, now I'm the one seriously considering to get some inserts... did you have to go see an orthopedist?

I hear ya, I'm also trying to focus on shoes I can weat everyday! I'm not the kind of girl who would ever wear stilettos to go to work, but I'd still like to be able to wear highly functional (but pretty) footwear.

By the way, I feel so sorry to hear you couldn't enjoy your shoes :( I had to give away several pairs of mine :'( I hope you feel better soon, having legs/feet pain really sucks!

I know exactly what you mean! I've had to go to Skecher Go Walks and flats....no fun! Even with those, my feet still hurt after a while.

Sorry to hear that :( It seems we will never find a shoe that truly fits us well... sad story, I've a pair of really amazing boots that feel like you're walking on clouds, but they're no longer in :p Sadly, no one wears that kind of boots anymore, they were really in some years ago tho (2005). Yup, I still have them and wear them from time to time, but I'll no longer be able to wear them in the Netherlands (my sister in law is always eager to find something to criticize me for). I shouldn't care, I know!

By the way girls! I took my newly bought shoes to a cobbler (yes, we still have those over here), he did something to my shoes... not sure what he did exactly, but thing is... I think I might be able to wear this pair of shoes after all :)! My feet still hurt a bit, but before I couldn't even stand those shoes! Now it turns out I might be able to wear them :) I wore them today and walked for a bit... didn't feel as much pain! Just a tiny bit :) Almost nothing!

Aw man! Shoes are my thing.. my splurge... I would definitely feel similar to the way you are feeling if my pain/issues affected that! Of course it seems quite trivial, but we all have things that make us feel good!

Not trivial at all, actually finding comfortable shoes that fit you well is actually hard when you have feet like mine :p I just seem to find shoes that don't fit me well and are painful to wear, being comfortable while you're outside running your errands is really important :( That's why finding nice shoes that actually fit you well and don't hurt you is so important :(
