What shoes do you wear them in?
I just got mine a week ago, and already they are making a difference to my pain. I wear them in my work shoes. But other than that, they don't fit in any of my other shoes, and I am finding that my feet get really sore again when I don't wear them.
I'm wanting to know what kind of casual shoes they fit in? I don't wear joggers, unless at the gym. In summer I live in Havaianas (which the podiatrist told me not to wear!). Other than that I wear ballet flats. Am I dreaming to think I could fit orthotics in ballet flats?
What else could they fit in that doesn't look hideous?
Also what about when you're pottering around at home?

Anyone wear orthotics?

Have you had a look at the Frankie4 shoes? I love some of their flats and they should be able to fit orthotics. They are not cheap though
If you go to the shops that "look" after your feet they should have something that looks okay and will fit your orthotic.
I have plantar faciitis and orthotics made my foot worse in the end of I have this F6 sock thing I wear instead. I also got some Birkenstocks black with little white flowers on and they have made a huge difference.
I hope you find something

Sometimes you have to pull the insole out of the shoes you are looking at and then put your orthotic in.
One thing my mum does. ...she's has plantar faciitis... is wears Birkenstocks/naot etc. She finds she can wear those pain free without her orthotic.

I developed plantar fasciitis following DS's pregnancy thanks to weight gain plus too much time in havianas!!
I don't have a personalised orthotic, but I have a sport insole by foot logics that lives in my runners instead of their insole. I can only go Asics or Brooks runners too as they offer correct structural support. I hate wearing sport runners lots - I feel like Jerry Seinfeld - but it's necessary for me to wear them every second to third day. So I've changed my wardrobe to work with this shoes.
I also got the fit logics half sole support which, if I get 1/2 size bigger, fit straight into my winter boots (Supersoft). I got some very cute ballet flats by Planet Shoes with in built arch support. My feet can handle them about 3 times a week.
I also have some attractive sandals by Earth which again have support, but I can only do those 1-2 lats a week.
More recently, I got some Axign sandals. They're a bit birkenstocky (I hate that look!) but worth it for the comfort.
I find wearing the same shoe several days in a row almost as bad as wearing an unsupportive shoe.

Thanks for the tips and the brand recommendations! I'm just a bit wary of buying shoes online though... what if they don't fit?
Has anyone tried Vionic shoes? Some of them look half decent, plus I found a shop about 40 minutes from me that I might be willing to trek to.
Those Oofos sound really comfy, albeit hideous! I'm thinking of maybe ordering some just to wear around the house.

I think the shop is called Footgear and it has Vionics and Frankie 4 and a few other ones, but most of them say on the box they are suitable with orthotics.
If you are anywhere near Indooroopilly there are two good size shops there that have a good range of shoes for orthotics.
