Hey all,

Add me to the list with Morton's nueroma (in both feet), atleast I'm fairly
sure I have it reading what I could find on Google about it and very similar
to both Jim and Dan's experiences.  Best I've been able to come up when the
pain is unbearable is to stop walking and scrunch my toes.  Sometimes I'll
be able to go 10 feet, others a mile, more or less.  It sucks.  Today, (on
the PCT Bear Bear) I bought some new insoles (Sole Ultra) that are heated to
200* for 2 minutes prior to placing in the shoe to mold to your feet.  I'm
not sure yet how well they'll work, but they noticably offer more arch
support and cushion than Super Feet.,

If anyone else comes up with another cure short of surgery, let us know.
