Getting Fit Feet, Part 1

Posted at 09:00 /shows/skills [link [Bookmark Link]]
Listen now:

[Book: Fixing Your Feet] This skills program is part one of an interview with John Vonhof, the author of Fixing Your Feet. Your feet are your main means of transportation on most wilderness adventures. Some people suffer after a relatively short distance, while others have walked thousands of miles without problems. So how do you keep your feet in top working order?

John talks about what motivated him to write his book. He talks about how to choose and fit your shoes properly, how to tell if a shoe is going to cause you problems. He talks about some of the foot problems you can prevent from the start.

In next week's edition, John will talk more about fixing particular problems you might have with your feet.
