This week on the Exercise Is Health podcast, Julie and Charlie discuss a common issue not only in the U.S., but throughout most developed countries – the many effects of stiff and supportive shoes.  Often times, it is thought that stiff and supportive shoes are necessary because they can help to alleviate symptoms such as plantar fasciitis.  However, stiff and supportive shoes can, at times, cause more harm than good.  In this week’s episode, Julie and Charlie discuss why you need to proceed with caution when wearing stiff and supportive shoes, as well as what you can do to help your feet – and the rest of your body – feel and function better.  Check out all of the details in this week’s episode!
