Wooden Shoes

Hello,

I am curious how you feel about wooden shoes. I currently rotate between several pairs of vintage Dr. Scholl's Original sandals.

These are very old -- the 'toe bump' is much more pronounced than in the newer models.

After many years of wearing whatever shoes caught my eye, I ended up with large, painful bunions.

Recalling my Dr. Scholl's of many years ago, I decided to try them again. Within a month my bunions were much improved, and now, 2 years later, they are actually much smaller - and don't hurt.

I got rid of all my other shoes and now only wear my vintage Dr. Scholl's and my Shape-Up sneakers, which are much better for running and jumping.

I know some cultures wear wooden clogs and I had a friend who liked wearing Japanese geta shoes. What do you think about this?

I have short, very wide feet and a high arch. (I went barefoot a lot as a kid and still do when I get a chance.) I can't wear flat shoes at all.

Thanks for all your help and wisdom - I am just beginning to study your method and I already feel improvements.

Wow! The proof is in the pudding! Clearly wooden shoes work - entire cultures use nothing but wooden shoes. In fact, my mother is Dutch so I'm very familiar with wooden clogs - I used to own some. My mother told me that the Dutch stuff their clogs with newspaper to keep the feet warm (and I would imagine, more comfortable). I'me no expert but I'd love to hear from anyone who has knowledge or experience in this!

Do clogs (traditional or modern) support the arch or is there some other orthotic benefit going on?

I'm also curious as to why people with high arches can't wear flat shoes (my sister says basically the same thing).  If humans traditionally ran around barefoot, and if that caused them to develop high arches, then how did they live without arch support?

Hi Craig,

People with high arches and plantar fasciitis really must have arch supports.  Check out the Shoes section in the Forum: http://gokhalemethod.com/forums/shoes for more info.

Hello,

firstly, thanks for that what you share here, for four years I have been using work shoes which also called safety shoes. Is pretty comfortable and cultured shoes which is totally different in the market but it is demanding in people. And that's a major thing is that shoes have a flat sole and not a high heel which reason this is comfortable in running and for good for wearing much time like travel.

Thanks in advance.
