We're not just here to commiserate, but also to provide a few take-charge solutions to stop our feet from suffering. So, we've included three footwear fixes for each staffer's gripe. This means a big, fat sayonara to all of the aforementioned "ouch" moments and a welcome hello to kicks that work. Enough said.
