I should have proofread my reply! It is only one shoe/sandal made by Breg and is often used after bunion surgery. The problem is it’s a little higher than my other shoes. When walking I wear it on my right foot and a regular shoe on the left foot. Now, because one foot is slightly higher than the other, it’s throwing my entire body alignment off and I’m feeling other pains in my knee, back, and hip.

@mietzel– This happened to me when I broke my foot and I went along limping because of the difference in height. It will be much more comfortable if you wear a shoe that will balance the height.

Sending your body alignment off-kilter causes its own problems as you have experienced. why not wear the mate to the shoe that you have to wear?

@mietzel, I don't have the details (yet), but today my son is consulting with his doctor about an in-the-shoe cushion to compensate for the different leg length that could be affecting his balance. It was noticed by his PT.
