Yes, that might be the case. I guess its kind of like when someone derails threads again and again to wage some kind of strange personal war, without taking into consideration that the other forum members are fed up with hearing the same stuff being said, over and over again.

Is that what happened? You probably need to go back and refresh your memory. I wasn't actively posting to this thread until Berner's comments...and his "mention" of my remarks in another thread. His was the digression to construction techniques... and the way this forum works, he basically called me into the discussion.

So your remarks are distortion and misrepresentation. It's disingenuous. Deliberately so.

This too speaks volume about your purpose if not your character.

Sure, sure, it speaks volume about my character. Great stuff.

Deliberate distortion of events and other people's remarks always speaks to purpose and character.

And BTW, threads only get derailed if the members are so intimidated by inconvenient facts that they freeze like wee mice when the light goes on.

Love the chukkas...

Well, those rocker bottom shoes doesn't look like it has any lateral ankle support at all.

How about impact of double/triple leather sole shoes impact on foot health and ankle stability?  I surely don't feel the ground as well wearing double leather sole compare to single sole, and the fast wearing heels and even faster wearing toe tips creates a somewhat rocker bottom.

Rocker bottoms are good for people with little movement at the big toe joint which is needed for propulsion during gait. The rocker helps make up for the motion.

The double/triple soles can possibly help absorb some extra pressure but that us so ring that I am trying to get a study to include in the near future. Yes it is possible that you won't feel the ground as well bit that will only really have an impact on people who have decreased nerve sensation in the first place.

Just a casual observation...It looks to me (not a doctor) that your lateral arch is falling and beginning to affect your metatarsal arch. I see significantly darker printing at the lateral treadline...particularly on the right foot...and an indication that the fourth and fifth are starting to lift/hammer. Was comment made when you were measured?

I could be wrong... not exactly a complete data set.


FWIW...
