I have pain in front of my heel, very tender to pressure. I have one leg shorter than the other, 1/2", and for 30 years have had a lift on my shoes. Since it's difficult to put lifts on tennis shoes, I sometimes put padded heel inserts inside to approximate the lift, and have done this many times over the years. For some reason this summer after walking through airports with my tennis shoe lifts, my heel started hurting with symptoms that match heel spurs. I have a pair of orthotics, and have worn them now for 10 days with lace type shoes and no reuduction in pain. Should I continue with the orthotics or try foam inserts or something else?

The Active Ankle offers flexibility and security. It will feel different from anything you have ever worn for ankle protection. The hinge allows freedom of motion that you may not be accustomed to. Do not mistake this freedom of movement for lack of support. A leading university said, the Active Ankle provides more support (inversion) than the leading air-stirrup brace, the leading lace-up brace, or a tape job.
