Thanks for all of the information and advice, everyone! I'll have to try the golf balls.
Its just so hard for me to want to give up my shoes xD though I don't care all too much about everything else that I wear, I've always worn the cutest shoes I can find...even if they're terrible for my feet, like the converse are. I know I'm going to have to though, if I don't want this getting worse or costing even MORE money.
I'm also huge on being barefoot, which- again, is bad for me. I won't even wear socks around the house most of the time, because it bothers me. Thinking about it, its no wonder they're hurting. I take terrible care of them!
I'll look into buying some hiking boots rather than riding boots, if you guys think it will help. They're probably more resistant to the mud and puddles I slog through regularely anyways. I have some steel toed Brazos working boots that have good support...or would if they fit me. They're a size too big so they give me blisters. I need to stop walking around in my rubber boots and broken boots at work, hide the flipflops from myself, and reserve the Converse for just wearing occasionally when I wont be standing around much. What do you guys think about the Nikes that everyone has been wearing lately as a choice of tennis shoe? I like the bright color selections of those, and they look like they might support better than my current shoes.
You know what the strange thing is? The one pair of shoes that my feet rarely hurt in is my old VERY broke in nylon Jazz/dance shoes. They're just a solid heel, then pretty much a normal slipper, but they're super comfortable. Its like being barefoot so I love it. I don't really understand why they feel better than shoes that would have support though O_o its a bit strange.
NdAppy, thanks for the suggestion. I've never been to a chiropractor before (mom hates them for some reason? Something about one almost killing her mom) but I've heard a lot of good about them. If a change in shoes doesnt help, I'll definitely check that out.
Tiny- it sounds like that is probably atleast close to what I have. I hate wearing shoes around the house but its worth a try :)
