Docs stopped making size 14 Wide a decade ago. They also fit my feet weird. The heel thing is kinda funny, in a "fuck my life" sort of fashion.

When I walk I strike my heel. Not so bad when you are young and fit. When you are old and large, it starts to hurt after a while. I do have a pair of sneakers without the padded heel. I paid to get fitted so that the shoes match my feet, and even still the heel and lack of arch hurt after 12 hours in the shoes.

I'm probably going to have to nut up and go to a podiatrist and a therapist and relearn how to walk and not fuck up my feet.

Start with the podiatrist. Don't let him cut any tendons or give you any injections. They tend to go extreme.

A decent pair of carbon fiber orthotics are a revelation. Trust me on this. You do what you do except now you don't need to stop. Make sure they fit, though. The last pair I bought, I went running and finished with blisters the size of Oxy pads. Those suckas went back and they refitted.
