Earth Shoes revival
I'm hearing many of my younger clients talking about Earth Shoes. Apparently these are the same shoes that originally came out in the 1970's, but since I'm too young to remember these I'm hoping some of you may be able to help me out. From what I gather, the shoes have a negative heel with a large rocker at the toe and a wide toebox. When one of my client's asked me about these, I could only imagine the Achilles Tendonitis problems that I'll see from the shoes. Has anyone dealt with these shoes previously? Other than the possibility of Achilles Tendonitis are there any other problems I should be informing my clients of? I have a client who doesn't want to buy these for his daughter until I give him the ok, although his chiropractor already told him it would be fine.
Would appreciate any thoughts/wisdom on these shoes.
