Going barefoot actually helping? 16 Replies

Everyone recommends never going barefoot if you have PF. However, I find that the only time I am pain-free, or nearly so, is going barefoot. Any kind of shoe makes the pain worse. When I do wear shoes, the recommended type (elevated heel, lots of…Continue

Cowboy boots/Work boots

I've had PF for about 12 years but I've learned from skimming a few of the discussions that it's not nearly as severe as that suffered by many of you.
