Achilles Tendonitis and Birkenstocks

Posted by Jason M on 4/18/01 at hrmin (044998)

Hey y'all. I had terrible soreness in my Achilles Tendon for about a year right near the top of my heel. I finally took the back strap loose from my Birkenstock Milano sandals (which I wear every day after work) and within a week the soreness had almost completely gone away. I wish I'd thought of this earlier, but the sandals felt fine while I was wearing them so I never associated the two. Has anyone else had similar experience?
