These better be good. I've started to develop plantar fasciitis I believe and I'm taking the recommendation to get some Green Superfeet. If I don't like them, you guys owe me $30.

If you have good insurance, you should see about getting some custom insoles. I only had to pay 25 bucks on the 289 for mine, and they're awesome.

Definitely. If you have a real foot issue, $30 insoles won't do squat.

Agreed. I too have plantar fasciitis and the superfeet are nice, but they aren't a real fix. I need to quit slacking and go to the podiatrist.

I need to as well. Probably quit being fat will help too (I'm on my way, but there's still a LOT of Dave to lose)

I had some recent foot trauma that forced me to go to a podiatrist... when I mentioned flip flops and crocs, hae scowled at me, and told me, quite firmly I must add, that they should only ever be worn on the beach.

Flip flops are pretty much all I wear in the summer... I am not sure how I am going to open my beer bottles next summer with out them. Image


Just use whatever is handy, lighter works very well, as do soda plastic bottles, most tools, you can even do it with a newspaper
Tbh, I would prefer those to a shoemounted bottleopener I think.

Thanks.

I pride myself on being able to open a beer bottle with just about anything... the flip-flop thing just seemed appropriate for this thread.

Really, it is on my resume. Image

ive got super bad PF and dont have the cash for custom orthotics , ive got both the black and the blue Superfeet (my feet are pretty flat so the greens are a no go) ive gotta say that these have helped almost all the other pains i was suffering due to the PF (ankles,knees,back) but havnt quite done the trick on my feet yet but they do hurt in a different way than before which i hope is good, my pain has moved from the middle of my foot and concentrated itself in my heels at this point. Id say the superfeet have helped a huge amount in a matter of a week or so and i would definitely say that after trying just about all the off the shelf brands of insoles Superfeet are hands down the best around. id be really interested to try some custom superfeet myself but the closest dealer is still like an 80 mile or so drive for me

Man, I don't get into caring what I wear much, especially out throwin' plastic...but I think I'd rather wear pointy toe cowboy boots than Birks. :shock:

Although, anything that kept me playing and pain free would get worn. :D

As someone who wears both cowboy boots (not pointy toe) and Birks (not in public), I'm offended. Wear for comfort, son.

Yeah, but we own a ranch. I can see why they wouldn't appeal to most, however, it only takes a day or two at my bunk house for me to wear the boots, and a day longer to get hooked again. Right now, they're chilling in my closet. Won't be like that for long.

My bad...and of course on a ranch, I get wearing them. :-D I do have a hard time picturing someone who wears CBs wearing Birks though. :lol:

Walk inside, take boots/hat off, put birks/robe on. Drink away the rest of the night.
