The Natural Soft Baxman.


I like this shoe!

It's got a lot going for it - including a rigid sole, forefoot, midfoot and rearfoot control PLUS it's cute!

Depending on where your bunions falls, it should work well for mild to moderate bunions, hammertoes, osteoarthritis, tendonitis, heel pain and Achilles Tendonitis. As long as the strap does not rub on the bunion - it should be suitable.

It's not as suitable for patients with Diabetes, Neuropathy, moderate to severe Hallus Limitus/Rigidus (limited range of motion of the 1st Toe Joint), and patients who suffer with severe pain. There's no real arch support but the rigid-sole helps to biomechanically control the foot and to prevent injury, wear and tear and help decrease pain.

I found this shoe at Famous Footwear at Paradise Valley Mall and, since it was the grand opening, they had a drawing for a shoe shopping spree - within one minute, one lucky person could run between a starting line and grab as many shoes as possible for free. The girl who won managed to get three pairs of shoes and I was reminded of the quote from the movie "Zombie-Land" as the girl ran as fast as she could grabbing shoes: "It's all about the Cardio!"
