Post My Heel Pain Relieved

For over two years now, I've had constant heel pain. Saw the podiatrist, had the hot wax treatments, daily stretching exercises, and finally getting orthotics.

Since the summertime, I found that wearing sandals with a bit of a wedge or clogs that lift up my heel has been tremendously helpful. I actually get out of bed and stand up pain free!

I do need to buy some new running shoes but I hesitate as I'm not sure if I'll need to put the orthotics in them or not; plus I tend to have a wide foot so that's a problem in and of itself. Does anyone know of an athletic shoe that has a bit of a raised heel? My feet finally feel so wonderful, I almost wish I could wear the sandals year round, but I live in WNY so that's out of the question!
