Went to a doctor and he told me that if I continued down that road I risked stress fractures and chronic pains that could stick with me for years down the line. Your bone structure is what it is and I have low arches that cause over pronation.
Yea, exactly. One of the reason I hate those minimalist shoes because if you're jacked to begin with it's going to fuck you up mechanically and not be an instant cure, and most people are already jacked. Yea, regular old Chuck Taylors are great and you can throw in your medical insoles. You should run your hip through some tests though, your feet are probably pronated because of your hips.
