Athletic Shoe Recommended List: 2010/2011 Center For Sports Medicine (Part I)

2010/2011 Athletic Shoe Recommendation List (Part I)

Compiled by the 5 Podiatrists at the Center For Sports Medicine, Saint Francis Memorial Hospital, San Francisco. This list is updated every year since 1985. It represents specific shoes and /or companies that make stable shoes which work well with our patients. There are many shoes that should make this list that we are personally not used to enough to recommend. So, it is not an all-inclusive list.

  1. Awesome write up! You seem to have great knowledge and grip over this industry.

    Love reading your blog! Keep the Good Work.


  2. As an athletically minded individual, I am extremely grateful for the existence of modern athletic shoes (sometimes called tennis shoes or sneakers). If you're ever bored, consider for a moment what it would have been like to be a devotee of physical activity 100 years ago. Shoes at the beginning of the 20th century didn't exactly scream comfort.If you want to know more information about Best Hiking Shoes for Women visit our site.
