hi

i have a dicky back. doc says i should do some walking to help it. physio says i should choose shoes with a vibram sole unit. she said firms such as the north face, merrell and scarpa use these soles.

anyone know of good deals out there?

try this place.... fieldandtrek.com/

its the shop at the top of lillywhite but the prices on the net arent as good....

good luck!

The sole of a boot is important, but don't overlook the footbed (insole). This acts as a shock absorber each time you put your foot down and this is important if you have dodgy knees or back. Boot manufacturers often fit inferior footbeds but you can remove them and fit something better (such as Sorbothane or Superfeet).

thanks doberman

tk maxx often has good deals on boots - often with vibram soles - do you have one near you?

fieldandtrek is good stuff but usually expensive

If you want to get a good pair for your feet - you really need to try them on, the right fit will have a big impact i'd think.
