    I Am Trying To Decide What Shoes I Can Buy That Would Help My Back Problems. Any Ideas? I have a lot of low back pain as well as in my legs and I need to find a good pair of shoes that might help. I have tried Danskos because so many people rave about them. The problem is my shoe size is 13 wide and the biggest shoe they have is not wide enough! It’s such a pain to have big feet!! I tried Skechers Shape Ups as well and can’t stand wearing them. Now I am out of ideas and I REALLY need to find a pair of good shoes!

      I am not sure if this is practical for everyday use but getting running shoes fitted correctly can help with pain… Take one of your worn shoes and they can figure out how you walk/run from the pattern of wear on the sole. Then they will choose a shoe for you. Very much helped me with calf pain when running AND walking.

      I also had lower back pain at the time, even after exercise, i’d just ‘seize up’ if i sat down for a while after exercise. I wished I’d done it sooner – the pair I was recommended were only £45 which was very reasonable considering some can be £90 plus..

      I am yet to find out what caused the calf pain, nobody knows!

    Why Do I Feel Pain Under My Ankle When I Wear My Skecher Shape Ups? I have recently bought my Skechers Shape ups S2 lite and working out with it was fun for the first week and then on the last day of my workout I felt this weird pain under my ankle. It’s not ankle pain its underneath it and it’s sort of like a tear and I felt like if I continued working out that it would get swollen. So I changed shoes and I still had the same pain? What is this because I love working out and I don’t want to stop!

      I refused to pay the price for the Sketchers ones after I tried them on. I bought a slightly cheaper alternative and I love them. I can wear them about 10 hours without them hurting my feet at all.
