Podiatrist Recommended Converse - the Run Star Hike!

Podiatrist Recommended
Comfortable Converse -
Run Star Hike.

These Run Star Hike Converse shoe options are super cute and far more comfortable than the classic Converse that has flimsy soles. 

They each meet three of the four criteria that shoes must possess to be comfortable, which are:

1. A thick, rigid, and non-flexible sole. This is actually the most important of the four criteria because a rigid sole that stops motion through painful or compromised joints means that you will have less inflammation, less pain, and joint damage. 

2. A wide toe box, so that there is less pressure on the toes, which means it will stop or slow the progression of hammertoes, bunions, ingrown toenails, corns, and even toenail fungus. 

3. Rearfoot control allows for more biomechanical control of the foot and ankle, which means that there will be less strain on your knees, hips, and lower back. 

4. These Converse can accommodate a dress orthotic or a thin over-the-counter insert, which will provide more arch support.  

These Converse are recommended for people with:
*Plantar Fasciitis (heel pain)
*Hallux Limitus (limited range of motion of the 1st toe joint)
*Functional Hallux Limitus
*Hallux Rigidus (no range of motion of the 1st toe joint or a surgically fused 1st toe joint) 
*Mild Osteoarthritis
*Mild Ankle Instability 

These Converse are not recommended for people with:
*Peripheral Arterial Disease (poor circulation)
*Peripheral Neuropathy (nerve damage)
*History of Ulceration
*Charcot Foot 
*Morton's Neuroma 
*Achilles Tendonitis
*Drop Foot
