i tried alot of different insoles when trying to ease ankle, knee, and hip pain. i use a regular pharmacy-bought pair, at about Ã¢â€šÂ¬20 a pair, and i just replace them whenever i walk them flat. i'm pretty sure they help. i haven't been forced to stop wearing my (rather heavy) steel-toe ////
-kickers anyway, though that day is coming.
i recently invested in a pair of MBT shoes too. i guess alot of people have heard of them. the booklet insisted that they were not shoes, but a 'medical training device'. i haven't spoken to a physio or anyone about wearing them yet, but they definitely make coming down the hills a lot easier. and, as promised, they do seem to be working the right muscles, including core stability.
Ã¢â€šÂ¬200 is (in my opinion) alot of money for a pair of shoes though, so i'll have to wait a while to see if they're worth it.
anyone else tried them out yet?
