As for dress issue, I've worn them once or twice, and you can be modest. For me, it isn't worth the effort. I'm a jeans and tee shirt gal at Disney!
There is a perscription out there if you talk to your doctor and its safe for you. You could ask about "Diclofenac". Its a to take twice a day. I had horrible knee pain and pretty much had to drag my right leg. Now after that perscription, taken daily I feel way better.

Oh and also you could go online and order what's called compression socks. Aimes Walker is a good website for them. They work well and don't charge expensive prices like some of the other fashion clicky sites. They are medical socks for support.

I would suggest seeing a knee specialist (if you aren't already) to discuss what type of shoes or orthotics might help you best, along with medications and types of maintenance care when your pain flares up. Knee pain is not always minimized by switching shoes and I wouldn't want to misdirect you away from proper medical care with incorrect advice.

He was super easy to make out of felt!
OMG, can you please post a photo??? I would love to see it! I'm thinking I might be able to make this for DD12 and she would love it! lol

I wear compression socks for walking around a lot, they do help me with feet fatigue and with calf aches as well.

Oh for sure. I was advised that there is little that can be done. I injured something to do with the cartiledge (skiing), and there are many rheumatic diseases throughout my family that do not help. Doc says whatever feels best is fine, I have had inserts before and really, they haven't done much. Disney makes them flare the worst, although it is my fave. I'm otherwise young and a healthy weight, so I won't rock the boat too much. I'm allergic to most anti inflamatory medications and can't risk taking what I'm not allergic to so that I don't become sensitized, so I just kind of need to take it easy, you know? No meds for me.

Thanks for the suggestions! Since we're leaving next week, I'll rock the NB's and will see how they do. If it is as bad as it was last time, I'll go back in for some ugly Rx shoes.

Not the best pict of Zero, but you get the idea. His nose is orange felt.
