I got these shoes because Ive been trying to get over plantar fasciitis. They have definitely helped. While I havnt been able to go for a run in them yet Ive done a lot of walking in them and they are one of the only shoes that allow me to walk decent distances relatively pain free. I find taking the inner soles out also makes them incredibly comfortable with a more natural feel when wearing them day to day around the house.
I have seen Dr van der Meulen (Neurosurgeon) over the past 10 years. Have had multiple MRI scans on my L4 L5. The last update scan, the MRI revealed some further developments. Doctor advised me to enjoy my life and take care. Well, a few weeks later I was hunched over in pain and then was booked into hospital. Many scans later with various consolations, eventually agreed to have the L4 L5 Discectomy. I have a long road ahead for getting me back on my feet. I may not cycle or run again for the next few years and really enjoyed my Altra Lone Peak 4 Trail shoes with over 1500km on them, so with my new Escalante 3, looking great on my stumbling feet. I will enjoy the smiles and miles whilst in recovery. Have over 1 hour or wear in them, and feel super soft and comfortable, and actually stylish - for a short run shoe!
