    If I wore the same pair of boots for five years I'd be scared to take them off as they would run away by themselves ๐Ÿ˜Š

    Thank you Mary, I will have a look at the ankle supports and thanks for the suggestions. Janette x

    I'm just a bit worried about Ellie. If she goes as far as to take her boots off what is she wearing to sunbathe in? ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜

    I've been wearing the same pair of hiking boots for 5yrs now, just cannot find any others which give such good ankle support.

    I do take them off when sunbathing so as not to appear more eccentric than I am ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ but they're worn every day for transfers - perfect soles, never been walked in ๐Ÿ˜†

    Hi Janette,

    Finding comfortable shoes or socks is so tricky. When I was still walking I wore sandals or sketchers trainers because they are so light. I had trouble lifting my feet so I needed something that wasn't heavy. I also had velcro " foot ups " recommended by my physio to help lift my feet.

    Now I still find finding shoes impossible because of my super curly and painful toes. I look like Ellie's definition of a mad woman because I ordered packs of seamless socks in bright colours. I used to be forever buying shoes so hubby is happy at the money we've saved ! ๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐Ÿฅฟ

    Good Luck tomorrow with your physio.
    Love Debbie x
