a community of practitioners
As my feet have gotten older, they have requested shoes with good arch supports.
When my feet are tired, they return the compliment to my entire body. I've learned the hard way to make them happy.
Their current favorites are Birkenstocks, Eccos, and Rykas.
My feet also enjoy variety, so I avoid wearing the same shoe brand each day.
Hope this is helpful info.
BTW... What is an uber-massage therapist?
I recently stumbled upon a newish shoe company called Oboz. They make a whole line of multisport shoes (hiking shoes, trail running shoes, sandals--comparable to what you might find from Merrell, Keen, or Teva) that's worth checking out. I hadn't heard of them, but I randomly found a pair on a sale rack a few months ago and, since they were in my hard-to-find size, I bought them. They're incredibly comfortable!
