Stiff Soled Shoes?

Posted by john a on 12/23/99 at 00:00 (014061)

What do people mean by a stiff sole? One that does not even bend at the toe joint? That type of shoe would kill me! And I thought that bending fairly easily at the toes is one of the hallmarks of a 'good shoe', especially good for PF, since bending at the toes stretches the fascia. Or is this just another case of what's good for one case of PF may not be good for another?

Thats right! No bending anywhere. Don't know why it works but I have had this for 15 months and since I have been wearing them (3 months) I am a different person. I think your right, 'different strokes for different folks'.
