Lucky for you, I'm not going to show you my freaky feet.
BUT, you do get to see my orthotics. I have to wear them because I suffer from over pronation.
What is that, you ask? What? You didn't ask? Well, here is the definition from foot dot com.
Over-pronation, or flat feet, is a common biomechanical problem that occurs in the walking process when a person's arch collapses upon weight bearing. This motion can cause extreme stress or inflammation on the plantar fascia, potentially causing severe discomfort and leading to other foot problems.
I wear these expensive puppies in every shoe I own. Therefore, I have to shop for well made, but conspicuously ugly shoes into which I can insert these supports. Or not, and experience horrible pain.
Some other members of my family share this problem, so it could be genetic. It may have been exacerbated by playing competitive racket ball for years.
My dancing days are over. No more spike heels. No sandals or flip flops.
I still get to play Fun Monday, though.
