SHOE RULES...

I love SHOES.. but at my stage .. where my 25 year old daughter sees “possibilities“... I see PAIN..


HERE IS A COMPREHENSIVE LIST OF WHAT TO LOOK FOR .. the health of our feet is

paramount to our efficient movement ... head to toe ...


  • A wide toe box to let the toes spread out and get stronger to uphold your foot’s arch and avoid bunions

  • A zero heel-to-toe drop to allow your calves and Achilles to relax at a lengthened position so they stay flexible and avoid overpronation

  • No heel counter to let the heel and foot work as one to express motion in tandem with each other

  • No toe spring so your toes can be in contact with the ground and develop strength, avoid heel-striking, and run with more ease

  • A thinner, adaptive sole for increased sensation on the foot and an improved foot-to-brain feedback loop, improved foot adaptability, and stronger lower leg muscles for stabilization

  • No built-in arch supports so your foot is not held in a fixed position and you can build the arch through your own strength

  • No large, clunky heel to avoid heel-striking, improve gait, improve posture and flexibility, and reduce joint pain
