I never said it doesn't work on some people with some conditions. It just doesn't work on all people with all conditions that cause plantar fasciitis.

In general I prefer something that has straps in the back (which rules out traditional Birkenstocks) with a (very) low heel/wedge that is easy to walk around with but dressy enough for a casual work outfit. Also moderately priced means below $100 (which would be the max. I could afford to spend).

I bought these, 80 bucks. I took off the center strap...

Have a look at Keen's. The UNEEK line is comfy as all get out.

Can any of these be purchased from an actual store where one can try them on first?

I have multiple foot issues, and my summer go-to sandals are ECCO Yucatan. My feet actually feel better at the end of the day when I wear them. Not cheap, but well worth it. Not the most adorable shoe but not absolutely fugly either. Dillards carry them if you want to try them on first.

I've tried them on at Dillard's several times. No go.

We with temperamental feet have to find what brands work best for us. For me it is a constant search.
I feel your pain!

You can try Nordstrom. I've had better luck there than anywhere, but I have such an odd foot, finding my size is a crapshoot, so I buy from Zappos' for the free shipping both ways. Just buy a cheapy toss rug if you don't have one so you don't ruin the bottoms of the shoes when you try them on.

Dillards and Nordstrom don't exist in my area. Any other suggestions?
