Are Your Feet Ready for Summer?

We know, we know—even though the worst part of winter is over, it’s hard to get too excited about March weather. There should still be plenty of overnight freezes, and maybe even a snowfall or two, left in the bag. So considering it’s not even technically spring yet,...

Are custom orthotics worth the cost?

Are custom orthotics worth the cost?

This is an undeniable truth: If you’re giving any kind of resource—time, money, energy, etc.—you want to receive (at least) appropriate value in return. And that’s completely normal for humans. Even when we do something charitable, like donating to a favorite...

Don’t Forget to Stretch Your Active Feet!

Question for you: For about 5-10 minutes before you go on a run or start hitting tennis balls with your partner, do you always remember to stretch out your body—including your legs, ankles and feet? Be honest. A lot of us don’t. And that’s to our detriment. We know...
