Well, it's an ongoing sagggggggaaaa. I decided that for the minute, due to the summer season (hopefully) beginning soon, that I would stop trying to find the ultimate mountain boot and go with a semi-rigid boot. I bought a pair of Salomon boots, just over a week ago and they have been great. They have a really wide toe area, which seems to fit my fat bertha feet. It still doesn't solve the problem of what to do about Mont Blanc, but at this moment I am just going to take the Salomon boots. I'll tackle the mountain boots around September in time for the return of the snoooooooowww  :D

You're right!  ;D  My first choice of mountain boots were a pair of meindhls, but I didn't find them wide. They were different to these, but sadly these wouldn't take crampons  :(

Hi I've suffered the same ,had it for around 6 months now, then I started to look into how could I speed up the healing process., good way to start is stretches you can see how these are done on YouTube, massage the area, get a tin of beans or frozen bottle,  roll under your arch and heel this should help alot. It can be caused by standing on cold hard floors, or trauma to that area, yes it's a nightmare but the research I've done it does go eventually   massage your calves to it's all conected

Speeding up the healing process is the fastest way to slow it down  ;)

Quite like bumping old threads when it's relevant.  I suffer with PF and (thankfully) it's not usually a problem, but have learned along the way it's mainly about having solid footwear when you -aren't- walking, and making sure you aren't walking around your home barefoot on hard floors.  Inserts go a long way for walking boots/shoes but the vast majority of the improvements were from switching to an ortho set of sandals for bopping about at home.

Warming a can of beans whilst rolling it under the arch of your foot, kills two birds with one can🐦🐦 ???
PF is painful, I liken it to a random knife strike inside the arch. But,  touch wood, the superfeet greens keep it at bay. I also use then in my everyday shoes now and always wear firm shoes all day now.
