I am thankful for new shoes. And even more thankful for a really skilled orthotist, instead of one who is (was) merely competent. The changes, both fundamental and subtle, are making quite a difference. Of course, it will take a while to break them in and a bit to get used to the different feel of them, but that’s not a big deal at all. Even got an appointment to recheck the fit in a couple of weeks. Cool.
Not to mention an appointment with my podiatrist in a few days so he can give me my quarterly pedicure and check out the new shoes as well.
