    Having had bad PF in the past, I always wear trainers or Scholls in the house. I can’t get the same model Scholls any more, and my feet have deteriorated in just a week. 

    Jill recommends Oofs, but I’m a bit sceptical about flip flop/slider style. 

    Any comments, recommendations please?

    I swear by Crocs, the clog style with the strap. Never wear flip flops now

    Having had PF since last July I no longer wear flip flops either  – think a long walk in them is possibly what caused it. I’ve got a pair of slip on skechers that I wear in the house and have recently bought a couple of pairs of birkenstocks for the summer as was advised by my physio that they won’t aggravate the PF.

    Oofos also do a closed shoe, but they’re a bit pricey.  My “flip flop” style are very snug and the sole is like a contoured bed of rubber bumps, sort of. But everyone is different. 

    Also do love Skechers. Have several pairs. Also a black Decathlon walking show which was only £12. Doesn’t have to break the bank. Needless to say, all shoes do lose their support in the end. My Skechers & Decathlon shoes need replacing. 

    (And I have tried heel inserts, but not sure they actually help?)

    Plodding round in my new Oofos, trying to decide how good they would be, whether I’m trying to curl my foot to hold them on? I do like them, but perhaps for post recovery and first thing. My Shechers sandals have a strap around the back of my heel.

    Will let you know though, how I get on. Only two days in.

    The Oofos have great reviews but I am told the Hoka Ora sliders are fab as a recovery shoe. i haven’t tried them myself but they look very comfy and as a Hoka trainer fan i can imagine the padding to be superb 🙂

    Thanks all. I had a clear out of my shoe cupboard and found a different pair of Scholls, with a back strap, so I’m going to try those for a bit before spending any more money. Plenty for me to research if they don’t do the trick
