In other words high heels...
Hi,I'm currently running in Brooks Glycerin 10's as recommended by a podiatrist. I have something called a Morton's Neuroma and as a result of some fairly in-depth analysis the podiatrist recommended the Glycerins as they have a high heel-to-toe-drop on them. All good so far.Now this is the 2nd pair of Brooks that I've had and I can honestly say that they stink! Not saying they're bad, they just really smell awful, as if one of my dogs has peed in them repeatedly. I don't suffer from smelly feet and no other shoe has ever smelt as bad as the Brooks.I've been searching the net for something similar to the Brooks, but though I can find general comment about the trend [more so in the USA?] to lower heel height, I cannot find a way to compare heights or to select the Glycerin shoes & find suitable alternatives.So has anyone stumbled on a way to make such comparisons, find heel height data or simply got some recommendations for me to try?ThanksPaul
On sportsshoes.com they sometimes give the heel to toe drop, e.g. Saucony PG9 = 8mm.
Runningwarehouse.com list heel - toe differentials aswell as heel - midfoot stack heights...
I've had this with Brookes shoes in the past and mazuno...must be adhesive or something. Still, it gave me my profile name!
