I have also been having trouble with my feet and as a mechanic they get no rest what so ever, well except when posting.
Back before I lost my sanity and moved into management, I was an industrial mechanic and pipewelder. I spent many long days on concrete and know what you are talking about. I ended up buy a set of White’s Boots after some of my co-workers talked me into it. After a few tough weeks breaking them in (or they broke my feet in), my feet problems went away. My lower back also started to feel relieved. They are expensive, and difficult to break in, but they do work. I use them for hunting now. They have excellent ankle support for stomping around hillsides and the tundra. http://www.whitesoutdoor.com/

The insanity plea, it works for everything!

Thanks for the tip, unfortunately I have an aversion to anything with any sort of a heel on them, so I am stuck with hiker style or walking shoe style. I did see some hikers on there but are not available for online purchase\:\( I am due for a new set of work shoes and it usually takes me a couple of months to find THE right pair as it seems the manufaturers always change up the fit just enough each year. What a PITA.

Hey, when you girls are done talking about shoes maybe we can get back to the manly diet talk again. . . ;\)

Seriously, shoes make a big difference. On a smaller scale, even buying a good pair of expensive socks, like Thorlos, make your feet feel great!

Ok, now I really need a Wii. We've been looking for a piece of exercise equipment that will fit in our smallish house and not gather dust.

When does this thread degenerate into a discussion about draperies?

Ignoring Tom and the other comedians…..

White’s are truly unique. If you look at the heel area, they look weird. They are designed to force the foot into a resting position, which is why they are so good for folks who spend a lot of time on their feet. If you cross one leg over the other knee, that is the position the boots force your feet into. I am surprised they sell anything on-line. When I bought mine about ten years ago, I had to either go to the factory in Spokane, or go to one of their dealers. At the factory they make a mold of your feet and at the dealer, they take measurements of both feet (all kinds of weird measurements). The dealer then sends those to the factory and they custom build the boots for you. Mine are two separate sizes and widths. It takes about four months to get them, and then another four months or so to break them in. But, after you do, they’re great and you can even send them back in and have them rebuilt. But if you can’t stand any heel, they may not be for you….. I would give them a serious look if you are having troubles with your feet though. Most of the electricians, mechanics, machinist and welders in my department wear them.
