As I age I'm am finding increasingly difficult to find shoes that offer the right amount of support and have resorted to wearing industrial workboots for a number of years now that have steel supports in the sole (stops the shoes flexing) and normally heavy duty soles that help as I have a tendency to drag my toes a little and almost walk of the side of my left foot. When I was younger I was able to wear normal shoes/trainers but as I get older this is not longer really possible. I was wondering if anybody out there has had similar experiences and what they have done. A couple of years ago I had a 'specialists' from the hospital make me custom made footwear, but this was ineffective and I just could not wear them. Plus having worn normal shoes up until that point I was somewhat alarmed with what these shoes looked like which I found a little hard to accept.
