Oak floors and sore feet?

My feet are KILLING me and the only thing I can think of is going from laminate floors to oak. They are definitely HARD wood floors. Am I crazy? Should get some good slippers right?

  • Hmm, I never had a problem going from carpet to stone floors. Do you have flat feet? It might just be because you're not used to it and you have been on your feet trying to get things cleaned and unpacked.

  • No they are pretty Archy. They hurt so bad though.

  • I have carpet in most of my house, but my friend has mostly non-carpet. When I go visit for 2+ days, my feet hurt really bad. She said it doesn't bother her much anymore. So maybe just time to get used to it? I wear cushy flip flops if I know I'll be on my feet on a hard floor for a while.

  • That's why I'm a fan of wall-to-wall carpeting. Invest in a good pair of slippers, since if you're like me, your feet get more sor if they get cold. Even if they don't feel cold, a slightly lower temperature than what you're used to can make them hurt. For now, put on some thick socks.

  • Happened to me with tile floors. I got a terribly painful bone spur too. So now I have lightweight sneakers that I just wear inside the house.
