im after some advice.
Can anyone living in Canterbury or in the Kent area recommend a good podiatrist. Especially with orthotics/ custom making orthotics?
I have been wearing vasylli orthotics for many a year- but the old achilles pain is back again and I may well be at the point that premade orthotics just dont cut it anymore.
Hey, not in your area, but best thing I ever did was to go to Pro Feet in Fulham.
Bit of a trek for me as live in Herts, but had custom insoles made. They are not cheap, but first pair lasted me 4 years or more, just replaced them
If it's been bothering you for years, go somewhere serious and get it dealt with. My suggestion would be Roehampton Uni: http://www.roehampton.ac.uk/sport-roehampton/performance-centre/other-services/index.html
http://www.londonpodiatry.com/ (very expensive, but great reputation)
Out of interest, what is the difference between running shoe orthotics and standard ones for walking?
I put ones I got 3 yrs ago into my running shoes (they only take up half the length of the shoe) and got a massive blister on my right instep.
Not sure there is any- I previously had 3/4 orthotics by vasily- scholl sell similar ones in boots.
When I put them in a neutral shoe I had exactly the same problem. Fine in a shoe with a little more support.
Problem with them is getting them in the right placeisn't the shoe
If you need orthotics was v impressed with pro feet and my custom made ones
