I love shoes, and I also have osteoarthritis in one of my ankles. I’ve had arthritis for ten years, since my twenties, and in that time I have been on crutches, walking with a stick, using leg braces, in a wheelchair, having operations and now I walk unaided (with a slight limp you wouldn’t notice unless you were looking for it).

In this time I have learnt that not all shoes are equal, and it is possible to wear amazing shoes while having arthritis (and other leg issues). I’ve been trying on shoes so you don’t have to. I will try to share my experiences here.
