Orthaheel shoes, fashionable shoes with support!
Hi everyone. Disco Sports' first shipment of Orthaheel shoes arrived yesterday and I couldn't be more excited.
Our feet were designed to walk on soft, natural surfaces like soil and sand. Yet today we spend most of our time standing, walking and running on unnatural, hard surfaces.
This loss of our "footprint" has resulted in a variety of pain and injuries affecting not just the feet, but the entire body. Unnatural surfaces force our feet to pronate (roll over) to gain ground contact, which flattens the arches and can disrupt normal knee function and hip alignment and increase pressure on the lower back.
Clinical and practical research has resulted in the unique Orthaheel orthotic design that helps "reclaim" your natural footprint by restoring the foot"s natural (neutral) alignment, enabling the feet, ankles and legs to function as efficiently and dynamically as they were intended. Orthaheel's unique orthotic is built-in to their collection of sandals, slippers and athletic shoes
I found out about this brand when I hurt my foot and was diagnosed with plantar fasciitis. Plantar Fasciitis causes extreme heel pain, especially when you take your first step in the morning. It's like stepping on needles. I first got this when I was training for the 10K. I kept on running even though my heels were killing me. My heels were sore for the next 6 months. I wore tennis shoes in the dead of summer to support my feet when all I wanted to wear was flip flops and sandals. Then my physical therapist recommended Orthaheel. I feel like an infomercial. But seriously, if you've had any kind of foot trouble or heel pain and need a supportive, yet stylish looking shoe, come see our new collection of Orthaheel. You're going to love them Any member of our sales staff will be happy to help you get the perfect fit for you! Enjoy the spring!
