    Default Advice on boots

    I have some real bad feet and now I have some problems walking. Anybody have any ideas about what boot is easiest or best on feet in that condition. I would tell you that I have neuropthy if I knew how to spell it but since I do not and do not wish to look as dumb as I am I won't try. Anyhow thanks in advance for any suggestions or help.

    Default Boots

    I don't know alot about special boots but I would think the you would need a solid supportive sole with a good ammount of ankle support. I'd look into getting a heat fited insert. That way you can get good foot support. This style is just about what I think you could use http://www.georgiaboot.com/lehigh_sh...tingThat's about all the info I can give you.

    Default Cabelas Bogbusters

    I have used these on two caribou hunts. The boots were great. We walked 10-15 miles a day across tundra, and shale. They were comfortable and held up fine.I hope to take them on another hunt soon..

    Default Orthotics

    I understand that not everyone has good insurance and such but if you can afford it, go see a foot specialist, s(he) may be ablt to fit some orthotics that make any shoe/boot you wear much more tolerable.

    I think that you should ask your doctor (foot specialist) on her recommendations.

    I second (or third) the custom orthotics. I've had them for years. They can solve most issues with feet as well as knees, pelvis and back. A good platform with support in the right places makes a solid foundation.
