Should We Not Be Foot Focused Rather Than Shoe Focused


I have lots of problems with this poster which is endorsed by my professional organisation.

Rather like a doctor who promotes a certain brand of cigarettes.

In reality all shoes can cause foot problems and I believe we should be honest with people.

All shoes alter foot function adversely! ALL shoes! There is no such thing as a good shoe when it comes to foot mechanics. Only less bad shoes.

Shoes are always a compromise.

And that’s not even considering the increase in bacterial and fungal infections from shoe use.

The more people realise that, the better their footwear buying decisions will be.
