I need a really good pair of sneakers for work. Well, I say sneakers... that's just an assumption. Basically I need the most comfortable, durable pair of shoes I can get that will keep my feet from aching and have enough cushion and bounce that endless walking back and forth all day on concrete doesn't kill my joints as much. I'm one of those people for whom LOW IMPACT makes a big difference, so horribly screwed up are my knees.

I've been coming home nearly limping, not really sleeping at all because of the pain in my leg joints, and I can't even stand and put my hands on the floor with my legs straight anymore becuase of how much strain the muscles are in because they've been compensating for the joints... and I'm a really flexible person, so that's just wrong and very very bad.

So... does anyone have any suggestions?
I kind of like the sketchers I've seen, but I dunno if they're really going to do the job. I'm not worried about cute as much as I am about functional... though I'd prefer they not be ass ugly. Any of you joggers or really into sports or something? Anyone have joint issues and can give me some suggestions as to what the hell to do?
I mean.. this is really really bad. I've had knee problems for years and it's never been this bad unless I actively did something stupid to mess them up. I thought I'd just get used to it... but I'm not.
Shoes are part of the problem. I have crappy "hiking" sneakers, which are good for the ankle support (I do a lot of crouching), but left blisters on my feet and I have low vans that are generally comfy, but death on my ankles and just don't have the bounce that I need for the sort of walking I do.

I dunno man... help.
por favor.

    I think I need to remember to keep the LJ open in the background. Download another client for it and actually run the thing. Maybe that will increase…
