Gone were the days of being able to wear whatever shoe I wanted no matter the style, heel or toe. Truth be told the days had passed not too long after my RA entered my life. Within a few years, certain shoes became tools of torture that I am sure were used during the Inquisition.
Over the years my choices were reduced to large shapeless boots like Uggs, slip on crocs, or flip flops. That pretty much sums up my options in the last several years.
