Good or bad footwear can really make or break your day!
Footwear is so important, it is the casing and foundation of our feet from the ground up. Our feet have the responsibility of carrying our body weight, so we need to treat them with the right support they require. They must be sturdy enough to be stable while we walk or run, and must be flexible enough to deal with changing terrain and activity.
At Pod Fit we provide consultations for footwear assessment. The assessment involves taking a history of your foot and leg concerns, previous footwear assessments and identifying areas of wear on your shoes. From this point, we provide a gait analysis both in shoes and barefoot, as well as a biomechanical assessment, and provide you with a list of shoe recommendations and retailers that would best suit your situation.
