Suffering from plantar fasciitis, I visited a foot doctor who gave me a shot of cortisone but I was still in pain. He sent me to PT and that did nothing. I went to this store and the sales lady put me in Chung Shi shoes that rock. I immediately felt relief! The sales lady was very knowledgeable and helpful. She explained my condition and why the shoes helped. I am now back to walking daily without pain.

I explained to salesperson that due to recent knee surgery, I needed a stable walking shoe very similar to the shoe I was wearing at the time. She watched me walk 3 steps and then proceeded to measure my foot and tell me I need a wide shoe. I have never worn a wide shoe. She then tried to sell me a very ugly "special" $250.00 pair of shoes in which I actually wobbled when I walked and felt like I was going to fall over. She said that I would get used to them after a few days ! Finally she showed me the shoe I was looking for but said they did not have it in my size, it would take a week to arrive and the price was $121.00. I went home, checked on the internet at Zappos and found the same shoe for $99.00 and it arrived the next day. I also found on the site a very simple and effective way to determine my arch, gait and recommended shoes for proper fit. PS. I ordered the shoes in both medium and wide. The wide was too big but at least with Zappos I did not have to pay shipping or use gas to return them. SAVE YOUR MONEY & GASOLINE - SHOP ONLINE !!
