Orthofeet 874 good shoe

I bought this shoe because I have unexplained heel pain that appeared for no apparent reason forcing me to walk with a cane. With these shoes I limp but don't need a cane. The sole is too stiff so far to walk with no limping. I also bought Orthofeet 950 and they are easier to walk in for me. For someone with less pain that I currently have, these would be good shoes to own. They are solid and keep your foot from rolling to the side.

I found the shoes to be the best I have had in years. I had surgery a few years ago and have a difficult time finding a shoe that is comfortable. I am so glad I finally did
