Bunion Pads Can Make Your Feet Feel Better

Dr Fredericks Bunion PadsThis 8 piece Bunion Pad & Spacer Kit from Dr. Fredericks is an easy way to help your feet feel better. It has spacers and bunion cushions and some that combine both.

This kit is really great for someone who wears different kinds of shoes on a regular basis.

The bunion cushion didn’t work well when I was wearing my sandals or my tennis shoes, but the spacer did a great job.

The spacer and cushion combo worked really well with the tennis shoes but made my dress shoes fit too tight.

Pictures of the different kinds of bunion pads & spacers in this kit.

There is a spacer for sports wear as well. I didn’t wear that one except to try it out because I’m not involved in any sports and just didn’t really need it. It might work well for hiking.

The spacers hold your toes apart and help align your big toe properly. You wouldn’t think a little thing like that could make much of a difference but it can. Especially if you have to be on your feet for a while.

The cushion can help keep your shoes from rubbing on the bunion.  That can keep the bunion from swelling up when you are walking a lot.

These pads do help! Try them. Your feet will thank you.

Musewear Flip Flops

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

A picture of my Musewear Flip Flops.These Flip Flops from Musewear are the first ones I have actually worn in years. I have been wearing them out in the yard when I’m working on my garden stuff. Especially when doing the watering. That way it doesn’t matter if I get my feet and shoes wet.

They would be great for poolside or beach wear too.

I like that they are really well made. The sole is thick and doesn’t feel flimsy. These should last for a long time. And they look good on my feet.

My Musewear Flip Flops.

I really like the quote on them. I picked the Gods Gift Flip Flops with the Elenor Powell quote : “What we are is Gods gift to us, what we become is our gift to God”.

They have a lot of neat quotes to choose from or you can get some with your Zodiac sign on them.  The Zodiac pairs also contain a list of attributes that describe that sign.

A really great thing about these Flip Flops is that Musewear has pledged to donate 15% of their profits to some really great programs including The Nature Conservancy, the Best Friends Animal Society, and Amnesty International.

These are made in Brazil in a factory that has fair worker conditions and a decent green policy. And they are eco friendly! What’s not to like?

You can order your own pair on their website. Please “like” them on Facebook and “follow” on Twitter.

The Body Changes As You Age

I’m sure you all were aware of that already. To some extent anyway. But did you know that your nose, ears, and feet all keep getting bigger as you get older?

That means that hearing aid wearers have to get new ear molds every so often.

Which can be a hassle. The last ear molds for my ears had to be done twice(so far- I hope that is all).

If the ear molds don’t fit then the hearing aid will make noise all the time. It will drive your friends and family batty. You too if you can hear it. And they won’t sound right either.

The worst thing is it will make your ears hurt really bad. If you happen to be a menopausal woman, or suffering from PMS, or just tired…well lets just say having sore ears do not make you any easier to get along with.

Badly fitting ear molds can also actually rub sores on your ears if you wear them anyway. So you have to keep going back to the hearing aid store till they get it right.

Like I said – a hassle.

That also means is you have to get bigger shoes…wider anyway.

My feet in my Musewear flip-flops.My feet are quite big enough already. I hope they don’t get much bigger or I won’t be able to wear any shoes at all. It is already hard to find shoes that don’t make my bunions hurt.

As for my nose. I don’t really care how big it gets. It holds my glasses up just fine and it works real well for smelling roses (and coffee). So long as it keeps doing it’s job I’m happy.

How’s about you?


Footminders Orthotic Insoles Review

Footminders Orthotic Insoles Review

Footminders Orthotic Insoles 'Comfort'.Footminders sent me some Orthotic Insoles to review. I wanted my husband to try them as he often has problems with his feet hurting. Since he left them laying on the table for two days I decided to try them myself.

That worked just fine as we wear the same size shoes. Yes I do have big feet! Extra wide and with bunions.

I didn’t know if the Footminders Orthotics would be a lot of benefit to me as I haven’t found anything yet that really helps with bunions except to have shoes that actually fit. Even slightly tight shoes can hurt really bad.

However their website says these were designed by podiatrists  to help relieve heel pain, foot pain, knee pain, and back pain.

I had not really thought about my feet maybe being the cause of my lower back and knees hurting. But apparently they were contributing to it if not causing it because a few days after putting the insoles in my shoes my back was not hurting anymore and the knees were not as bad.

The package says it might take a while to get used to them. They did feel funny for the first couple of days but after that I forgot they were there.

The insoles can be trimmed to fit your shoes and you can wipe them with a soapy rag but not soak them.

They should last for about a year before you need to replace them. Now that I know what my problem was all my shoes (at least the ones I wear a lot) are going to get some Footminders Orthotic insoles put in them.

If you are having problems with your feet or your back you should try these.

How Do You Keep Your Feet Warm In A Refrigerated Area?

I’m looking for some advice and tips on how to keep your feet warm if you are working in a cold room or refrigerated area.

Workers are also required to wear rubber boots that can be easily sanitized. So that means the feet can sweat even if it is cold.

I remember a book that suggested putting Vaseline on the feet to help keep them dry. Not sure that would be a great idea.

I tried looking for suggestions online and found a few hiking/hunting sites that suggest wearing silk sock liners. I have never heard of these. Does anyone know anything about them? Do they actually work?

If so then that would be a good solution unless they are really expensive.  Hopefully one of the local stores carry some too otherwise it will take a few days for them to be shipped.

So do any of you know anything about these sock liners? Do you know of something that might work better?

Thanks for any suggestions! The feet will be very grateful!
