    Any recommendations for good hiking/walking sandals for women with bunions and neuroma?

      Try the top sandals of Keen (Whisper, Newport H2, Bali Strap, Rose, and Venice H2), Birkenstock (Mayari, Gizeh, Arizona, Yara, Rio, and Milano), VIONIC (Tide II and Wave Toe Post), Teva (Tirra, Omnium, Neota, Verra, and Hurricane XLT), ECCO Sport Yucatan, and Clarks Breeze Sea. These are the sandals with technologies that can help relieve pain caused by bunions and Morton’s neuroma. These sandals also have actual consumer reviews that indicate a pain-free walking experience for those people with bunions and neuroma. Although, most of these sandals may be best for walking on pavement.

    Any recommendation on soft footbed vs regular footbed for birkenstocks?

      Hi Laura. You can try Birkenstock Boston and Granada soft footbed. The soft footbed has an extra layer of cushioning foam between the regular suede footbed liner and the layers of cork. Although, soft footbed can work well with anyone who has Morton’s neuroma, those with considerably high instep may find the upper portion of the sandal uncomfortable due to the increase in total height of midsole. In our view, the soft footbed is most suitable if you have low to regular arch, although, some people say it takes a while to get used to it which is also probably the reason why regular footbed is more popular than soft footbed.

    A neutral-cushioned shoe can also give sufficient support up to mild overpronation. So, if you overpronate slightly but is still very comfortable wearing a neutral shoe, you still have all the support you need to stay safe.

    Hi my name is Linda, you have mentioned just about everything I have gone through. The Orthopedic Dr. my reg. Dr. sent me too has only made it worse for me. I’ve had two surgeries, and I’m still in pain .I have been seeing Vitos from West Covina, I got some orthopedic shoes and they have helped A LITTLE . My question is, I’m a Folklorico dancer., I am a senior I dance with other seniors, will I have to stop dancing?

      Hi Linda. We’re glad to meet you. If it’s not a permanent nerve damage, you just have to take a break for a few weeks to allow the nerve to heal. Try ice massage. Make sure to wear shoes with enough room and support in the forefoot. You might need additional foot pads to reduce pressure on the nerve. A shoe with a rocker sole might help because it reduces bending in the forefoot when pushing off to complete your step. Even though you dance with other seniors, you still dance to the music. So you might need to choose a slower routine that won’t cause pain in the ball of your foot.
