Re: Plantar Fasciitis and injuries

So what kind of shoes do you wear off the mat?

Personally I prefer shoes with as thin a sole as I can get away with (as in - in the winter they have to be thicker...) but I'm not sure that making dramatic changes right now when you're already dealing with pain is the best thing to do?

BTW, what shape are your hips in? My experience as an Alexander technique teacher is that foot problems often are caused or made worse by the whole leg not working in a well coordinated way, starting with hips/pelvis/lower back areas that are too tense.
