News that Vexes

For less foot pain, pick sneakers over heels

  • This article is rich with data:
    it's important to pay attention to the shoes that you're buying and make sure they fit
  • for women, wearing "good shoes" reduced the likelihood of having pain in the heel, ankle and lower Achilles tendon

Now let's not be too hard on the researcher, Alyssa Dufour - she's only a graduate student at Institute for Aging Research Hebrew SeniorLife in Boston- maybe drop her an email and congratulate her on her dubious debut on News that Vexes. May she have a long career here!
