Updated January 15, 2011

Arthritis pain can be very debilitating. When joints hurt in your lower extremities - hips, knees, and especially your feet -- comfortable shoes can be soothing. Actually any shoe that soothes and comforts is a find. People like to share what works. Have you found comfortable shoes that you would recommend to others with arthritis? You know, the kind of shoes that are so good you buy more than one pair -- and keep an extra pair or so in reserve. Tell us about your find.
