Footware

Hi. I have osteoarthritis in my feet (as well as in one knee and TKR in the other). I'd like recommendations on best footwear to help with the significant pain please. I wear Skechers but my podiatrist doesn't really rate them. There are so many articles on the internet, I'd like to hear some specific examples or brands people have bought that have helped. Thanks 😊

    I have mid foot OA and wear Alegria shoes/boots. They have a thick rocker sole. Have worn these for years as I’m on my feet all day at work. They are stocked by Cheerfull Soles, Legend footwear (more limited selection but often cheaper) and there’s an Alegria Uk site. Saw podiatrist last week and was wearing them and he thought they were excellent but hadn’t heard of them.
