    One of the most frustrating parts of suffering from pain of any kind is the inhibition to participate in many of your favorite activities. Foot discomfort is surely no exception, and if exercise is an important part of your routine, being held back from that can be excruciating. While rest is a key part of the recovery process, it's important to gradually resume exercise once you and your doctor agree that you're ready. Of course, the first thing you'll want to do when you get the go-ahead is to grab a new pair of shoes, and while there are a lot of factors to keep in mind, the following are two tried-and-true options depending on your activity of choice. Consistently a Runner's World editor's top pick for both men and women, Brooks' Ghost line is great for new and seasoned runners alike, and features a blended foam composite heel. If climbing mountains or biking trails is more your speed, Merrell's Moab Ventilator Hiking Shoe provides unparalleled protection for your entire foot, as well as substantial arch support and cushioning throughout.

    Unfortunately, one of the leading causes of foot pain and its related ailments is ill-fitting shoes, which coincidentally, are often among the trendiest. High-heels, flats with little to no arch support, and shoes that squeeze the toes are some of the common culprits and should be left on the shelf as you recover. But that doesn't mean you have to throw fashion to the wind! Many brands are combining their commitment to comfort with a stroke of style, resulting in a comfortable pair that also adds a bit of polish. Staying on-trend, Dansko's Lucille embraces the bootie movement and is the perfect pick to complete any day-to-night look. Meanwhile Mephisto's Baduard is more than an attractive moccasin; it's also a well-made, casual loafer that provides instant comfort with its shock-absorbing rubber outsole.

    The Verdict

    As anyone who has experienced chronic foot discomfort can attest, the real win is the pair of shoes that provides relief and allows you to live life the way that you want. While foot pain is a real pain in the... well, foot... the good news is that the shoe and treatment options are constantly growing. Plus, with handy inserts readily available, it's easy to turn practically any old shoe into a slightly more comfortable pair (but remember, there are certain styles you should absolutely stay away from while you recover!).
