I have a spiral break in the middle of my 5th metatarsal.
I was given a air-walker (boot thing up to your knee) to wear, but since I was at home with my s this summer, I mainly stayed off my foot or hobble around with the flat shoe I got from the first Dr. I saw.
6 weeks later and it’s still not healed (to me it didn’t look different than the first x-ray.) I realize know that I maybe should have been walking on it, because it would have got some flowing down there.
The Dr. said I could wear hiking shoes now.
They are fine to walk in, but I think I got a size too small for my hurt foot.
It feels tingly all the time.
So I went to look for shoes that would maybe be the same, but maybe cheaper.
I found some running shoes that look like they would give me the same support as the hiking shoes.
Is there something I’m missing?
They are 1/2 the price as hiking shoes.
But I do want my bone to heal!!
