Shoes for Heel Spur/sensitive feet
 
Hello everyone!

I've recently grown out of my old shoes (K-Swiss Bigshot http://www.tenniswarehouse-europe.co...HG-KMBSBB.html) and I need new ones.
I have sensitive feet and when I don't have shoes with lots of support, I get an injury called Heel Spur (I don't know if this is the correct term, in dutch it's hielspoor ;-) )
I'm 16 years old if that's of any relevance.

Do you have any suggestions which shoes I should buy?

Thanks in advance!

You need Sorbothane Heel Cups from rxsorbo.com.

For shoes, look for a shoe that has a hollow in the heel. Nothing disperses shock from your heel better than "nothing".

I know the Yonex 308 is built like that. Perhaps there are also others.

Those shoes aren't available in europe.
I was personally looking at the Adidas Barricade shoes, I've heard from other people they are very supportive.

Does anyone have any experience with these shoes?

Woops, I found the Yonex shoes, but in my opinion their not the prettiest shoes around..

Then go for the barricades. Those are what I wear.

Try the Cb 3.3 or 4.3. The fit is love or hate, but it has good heel protection and a nice hex. design.

I recommend that you go see a podiatrist. Heel spurs are painful and will get worst if not treated. Do not let heel spurs from letting you enjoy the game of tennis. Orthotics and physical therapy to loosen the muscles under your feet will help you the most.

As far as shoes, I have been wearing the barricades 7 and they are great. They have good stability and there is enough cushion in it. Highly recommend it.

Thank you all for your reactions!
I've tried the Barricades 7, but because I have wide feet, I bought the K-Swiss Stabilor (not available on TW) and so far, they're really good! I can recommend these shoes to everyone :)

Thanks again!

Here's how I fit my 4E-6E width feet into a pair of Barricade 7:

Interesting. Do you mind sharing where you got that? Is it a shoe stretcher that expands? I love the feel of the B7 but my feet (mostly my right) are a touch too wide, this could be the solution.

I bought them from fleabay. Search for "professional shoe stretcher".

You turn the crank to widen the stretchers. It also helps to apply some chemical to the shoe (alcohol for leather, there are other solutions that work for synthetic).

Make sure the crank is metal. Do not buy plastic cranks, they will break on you.
