I found an interesting article. A little hard to follow, but the treatment consideration section at the end is interesting.

Maybe Dr. Z can comment.

uh, what'd they say?

seriously - i did understand some of the article. The advise it gives goes against what I read on the boards and what I've experienced concerning an elevated heel and flexible footbed. Don't the Birks have a lower heel and firm footbed? my sandels do, and I swear by them. just wondering...

I know this doctor. He is a well respected podiatrist who 'wrote the
book on the biomechanics of the foot and gait cycle. He use to own and probaby does own an orthosis lab called Langer. I will read his article. I believe that is an old piece just from glancing at it.
