WFH has had me barefoot at home pretty much all day except when I go to run errands every now and then for 1-2 hours. My feet are not used to being back in shoes for 8+ hours a day. Had my feet all messed up hurting and veins popping every where. Should I get new shoes? Any tips? TIA

Sounds like you weren’t wearing the right shoes before but got used to them. I’d go get some nice comfy daily wears in black and brown

Might be too late. May need to amputate.

Go see an orthopedist. I went to one and he knew why I was sore within 5 seconds. He gave me magic insoles that help tremendously. Also he said to wear support even when you’re in your home. I toss the insoles into a pair of Nike air Max because they are like pillows around my feet

Do you wear flats or heels? Any heel hurts right now - I swear my feet got bigger but only for things with heels (all my tennis shoes fit fine!) I think it's just getting used to wearing shoes again unfortunately.
