This is my first post! I am having issues with an unidentified leg injury.After my first half marathon I fractured my leg, took time off to heal, ran 2more half marathons and then fractured the same leg during my training to a 4th half marathon. Since then Ive rested, healed and work with a physical therapiston a weekly bases. My PT has changed my gait, has me on a strength and stretching program and has me running in shoes with more support as I pronate a bit. Despite all this, pain is starting to creep back into my trouble spot.
An additional thing he wanted me to do was change my every day shoes. I usually wear converse as my every day, casual shoe. My physical therapist has band me from wearing converse and ordered me to buy casual shoes with more support. I am a 27 year old male. Does anyone have any suggestions on stylish casual shoes that still offer enough support?
Most brands have support styles available. I wear Asics for all my athletics but I have a desk job so I don't worry as much about support for business attire. You can also check into inserts that offer more support at a cheaper price than new shoes and might keep your Converses going.
Ultimately you'll have to either do some research on your favorite brand or ask at the store to see what options are available.
