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

I know you don’t post very often anymore, but I am always excited to check out your recommendations. I had a pair of mint green Converse high tops in high school that were one of my favorite pairs of shoes EVER (cuteness-wise). I work on my feet all day, and live in Florida where home flooring tile, so the knee/foot/back wear and tear hasn’t allow me to wear them since my early twenties. I ordered a pair of these Run Star Hikes as soon as I could find them in my size, a high top in a funky champagne colored, textured fabric, and they are every bit as comfortable as my Danskos or the Hoka One One that I bought on your recommendation. Now I just want to find a low top pair in some pastel color. The interesting colors fly out of stock so quickly!

I hope you continue to post as you have time, (hoping for new sandal options, especially). My 7 and 8 year old girls are already close to growing out of kids sizes, and I need to find some decent quality but inexpensive shoes for them. They are hard on shoes, and grow out of them so quickly! I have most of the collection of shoes I purchased on your recommendations over the last several years (Fly London, the Hoka, and several others I can’t think of right now), and your general shopping advice has helped me find some comfortable others on my own.

Thanks again,
