I've found winter boots that get on well with my feet:
- zero heel - so my pelvis is stacked over my ankles
- flexible sole so my toes can bend and push-off
- wide toe box so my toes are free to spread
- light weight
- 6 mm thick sole, letting my feet feel the ground
- good grip so I don't slip on muddy hills
- made of natural material (apart from the sole)
- waterproof - a must to cope with the English winter
- made to last (with a 3-year warranty)
I would recommend:
- getting your feet assessed
- learning all the corrective exercises that you need to eventually achieve a natural gait - where your feet do the job they were designed to perform and your glutes engage with every step
- transitioning gradually out of your usual shoes
- And beyond exercise, acquiring new habits of daily life.
If you are interested in restoring natural function to your feet and the rest of you, I am qualified to help as part of my Restorative Exercise Specialist training.
