    Hi Lesley I work on my feet all day also. Usually I get pains in my left foot esp when I put pressure on it. I bought memory foam sketchers. Found great relief.

    Hi Lesley.

    I agree with Hot Picks.... Crocs have to be the most comfortable shoes under the sun, the orignal sort I mean... or the more 'feminine' version of the original sort, which isn't much more feminine but looks a tad less clunky.

    Apart from being lightweight and moulded to your foot's shape, they have these holes near the sole which keeps the soles of the feet cool, which I love.

    Gosh, I sound like an ad!

    I also have a pair of Echos which are very comfortable, though I don't have to stand all day.

    I have had serious foot problems, though not directly related to RA, and I had some special insoles made that mould to my arch, as support. Can't do without them now!

    Hi Lesley I get problems with my feet due to ra too. The balls of my feet, above my toes and tendinitis on my achilles heel. I wear like surgeons clogs at work and have orthotic made insoles for all my other shoes. Sketchers are a godsend. We could all be walking adverts for Sketchers lol.
