I was recooping with a broken ankle and a broken big toe. I went to a shoe store that let me walk across one of those mats that tells you how you walk, where your pressure points are etc. It was then that I found out I had flat feet and was also dealing with that plantar phacitis (dont know how its spelled), and that was very painful.
The gentleman recommended the Keen Voyager hiking boot for work. He pulled out the shoe type and my first reaction was, god these things are totally hideous looking, I'll never wear these. He coaxed me into trying them on. OMG, the minute I began walking in these boots, the plantar phacitis pain was gone. I couldnt believe it. GONE. He immediatly ordered the mid hiking boots for me. Ive been wearing them since, and now im looking for another pair. I tell everyone and anyone about these boots. Yes they cost a little more, but your feet will thank you in the end. I love these boots and hope to god they never get discontinued. Thanks Keen for saving my feet.
