Get ready to not be shocked. Uggs have been found to lack the support people need for knee and back health.
Because Uggs do not have the firm shape needed to fix the foot in place while a person walks, the lower limbs need to work harder and can be prone to damage.
Fleet Feet Sports, Syracuse is now carrying a line of casual shoes by Superfeet (yes, the insert company) that offer the ideal fit and firm support to align the knees and back better. They come in shoe and multi-season boot options, can accommodate custom orthotics and are certified slip-resistant.
Stop by either Fleet Feet location to try on a pair and receive a free wine glass (while supplies last). You might be surprised what support these can offer your patients.
