Subject: Re: Oh my aching feet!
My husband and I don't leave home without our Ecco's. He was a teacher and stood all day on concrete type floors and his feet were never a problem.

Having said that, you probably should spend time in a good shoe store trying on the many alternatives and walking around the store in them. With all the choices given, this could take a few days but your feet will thank you.

I've also found that socks can make a big difference. The seams near the toes can really cause problems with blisters. Wearing your socks inside out can reduce that seam problem. Gold toe socks cause few problems for me.

Many people can wear shoes without socks but the leather, in contact with my skin, makes me blister without taking a step. Can't wear those nice leather watch bands either.

Good luck in finding your favorite shoe.
