Nee your help and knowledge !!

I am curious as to some possible recommendations for shoes. I am recooping fro TTT and hope to be able to wear shoes again in a few weeks and I know that I would benefit by wearing a better quality or design. Tennis shoes and street shoes are what I am curious to hear about.

In addition to knee problems, I also have plantar fasciitis (foot problem).  You may want to go to a shoe store that has a pedorthist to help you.  Here is a link to find a local pedorthist.

I've had three surgeries (latest TKR) on knee, and two surgeries on opposite foot.  I wear New Balance gym shoes with very good arch support along with custom orthotics.  I just purchased a pair of sandals with arch support, also at New Balance, and hope they're comfortable.  They seemed ok at the store, but we'll see.

Take care.

Since Sterns is a guy, I would scratch Ryka off of the list as they only make women's shoes.  I would probably also scratch platform sandals off of the list.   :)
I agree with Amy, go to a store with a pedorthist and get help from a "professional".  Shoes that work for one person may not work for another. 

Good luck.
