I am currently experiencing some mild achilles tendonitis. I have found that the shoes i currently wear to work seem to make it worse during the day. I have also found that walking around during the day wearing either Crocs or just my socks seem to make my achilles feel a lot better, and generally feels more comfortable.

Problem is, walking around an office with Crocs (with a few blobs of paint) or just socks on isn't really acceptable. Does anyone have any suggestions for some slightly more professional alternatives?
