I went to see my son at college last week and since it is finally getting warmer outside, the kids were shedding their heavy garb for more summery clothes. One thing that I just shook my head at is the fact that at least 75% of the students I saw were wearing those infernal, nasty looking flip flops on their feet. Now those chunks of rubber were invented to help prevent people from passing on foot diseases in community shower settings such as the armed forces and schools. They were never intended to be official street garb but somehow everyone in the country is going around with those things stuck between their toes and thinks its attractive footwear. I imagine part of my angst with those things is that I grew up in a day and age when young people worried about how they looked. Never in a million years back then would anyone be seen walking around town with $5.00 thong shoes made out of recycled tires. I watched our recent high school's Grand Prom March and was shocked to see at least a half dozen young ladies wearing $400 dresses walking around with worn out flip flops on their naked feet. I don't have a daughter but if she told me she was wearing flip flops to the prom, I would cut three holes in a fifty pound potato sack and tell her now she has a dress that matches her footwear. I don't know why restaurants allow people in with those things on their feet. It clearly says no shoes no service and I proclaim resoundingly that flip flops are not shoes. In fact, a person walking into an eatery with those ugly things on their feet is flopping airborne particulates of toe jamb all through the dining area and that should be considered a health hazard. Toe jamb causes cancer in laboratory rats you know. Of course it isn't only younger people who have failed to understand the rudimentary couth of covering one's feet. You see people of all ages under fifty walking all over town with that disgusting "suck splapt" sound every time they take a step. Maybe that would help stem the tide of this epidemic of podiatary ignorance. If a person had to go into a show store and ask the clerk which aisle "suck splapts" were in maybe they would be ashamed to ask and would go and buy a pair of gym shoes or God forbid, a pair of actual dress shoes. Take a look at when flip flops or rather "suck splapts" came into vogue as everyday attire and you will see it correlates with the beginning of the downfall of this great country. "Suck splapts" are made of rubber. Rubber is a petroleum based product. It makes sense then to correlate that the production of these nasty rubber shoes in such monstrous numbers is the root cause of oil going so high on the market. If everyone went back to good old fashioned leather soled shoes, we would have more and cheaper gasoline plus fewer cows creating a hole in the ozone layer with their flatulence. It is time we outlawed flip flops. Or at least changed the name to get the proper sound those disgusting things make when someone walks in them. Suck splapt, suck splapt, suck splapt. 580521 143 Air Jordan 11 Low GS Aqua Safari White Aqua Volt ,621958 090 Air Jordan V Womens Fresh Prince Of Bel Air 378037 006 Women Size Air Jordan 11 Gamma Blue 2013 Air Jordan Spizike New York Knicks Blue Nike Kobe 9 Low EM XDR Black Red Nike Kobe 9 Low EM XDR White Black Gold Air Jordan 11 Low White Black Red Air Jordan 11 Ultimate Gift of Flight Air Jordan 3 Retro 88 White Cement Air Jordan 5Lab3 Silver I was really not digging the way Sure Steps look, and I"m a little sensitive about Max having things that make him look different and "not cool" so I was trying different ways to disguise them. Then I saw Converse high tops were on sale today in the mall and I couldn't resist. We got a size 5 infant, to fit over his size 4 feet + orthotic and they fit great and cover the height of the Sure Step PERFECTLY!He's normally a size wide, but once we went up the size it didn't seem to matter. Hint: we had to take out the laces completely to have them fit snug, then relace them. Yes, it took a bit of time, but soooo worth it to have my little dress up doll back LOLI'll pass on some Sure step info I got from our Ped to answer some of the questionsThe Sure Step itself is apparently the support, so all you need is a pair of shoes that are able to fit over them, since they have slippery uneven bottoms. (pp said skidders, and those too are great!)I've heard a lot about PT's sharing Sure Steps and apparently we should be very cautious about that. The orthotics are custom fit because they have to be right next to the pinky toe, but much further away from the big toe to be effective. There was a bunch of anatomy/tendon explaination that I didn't follow completely, but if they don't fit properly thay can actually discourage walking. If you have a hand me down pair they can be trimmed down to fit properly but I've seen a couple kids with one's that are soooo small they are barely reaching the toe portion, so it's not really doing it's job.You don't want anything with arch support, so skate shoes, and chucks are great because they're very lightweight and the flattest, again because the orthotic is there to do all the work. 580521 143 Air Jordan 11 Low GS Aqua Safari White Aqua Volt,Most adult ballet beginners I talk to are motivated to add home practice to their dance class schedule. If you want to progress to pointe work, you can save time and money by learning exercises targeted to prepare the foot muscles for pointe. An added bonus to this focus is, that the same exercises enhance your balance and all your ballet footwork. Exercises involving just the intrinsic (in the foot only) foot muscles do not require a ballet barre (or bar), a mirror, ballet wear, dance music, or any kind of workout equipment. Adding an exercise to determine and then improve your turnout requires enough floor space for the length of your body, and a small cushion or folded towel if you are very thin. Practicing press ups on one leg in a cou de pied or retire position requires a kitchen counter or chair back for use as a barre. Checking for a correct ballet position to practice in, is best done with your ballet teacher. However, if you have a full length mirror, you can also check at home, once you understand what is right for spinal posture, pelvic position, and leg positions. Plan on adding ten to fifteen minutes a day for foot exercises to progress toward pointe work. While your feet get stronger, you will find a better push off in all your releves and jumps. Landing through the foot will become easier as well. Some adult ballet beginners may never get to dance ballet in pointe shoes because of previous dance injuries, extremely inflexible ankle joints, or another reason. Yet, adding specific foot exercises to your routines will definitely help you progress toward pointe work and better foot work in general.

The pilot program is a first for Nike, which will provide special training routines and workouts for athletes in schools across the country. Tigard is the only school in Oregon chosen for the pilot program. Other schools included football powerhouses, Booker T. Washington High School in Miami, St. John Bosco High School near Los Angeles and DeSoto High School, south of Dallas, Texas. have never had anything like this, said Tigard junior quarterback JT Greenough. January now, so we have six months. And by that time, hopefully, it will be proven on the field. is motion Tigard High School prowess on the football field is well documented. For the past two years, the school has earned back to back Pacific Conference championships, sending the team to the state playoffs. In December, the Tigers reached the state semi finals before falling to Central Catholic High School. Ralph Greene, Nike Football vice president for business development and a volunteer coach at Tigard High, runs the pilot program and said the tests will help trainers come up with routines for the athletes. is motion and sports in motion, Greene said. you can improve the output, you have to know how you move. Nike trainers were at the school several times in the past few weeks, measuring each of the team 104 players flexibility, balance, speed and strength. did balance tests with us, to find out what our deficiencies are, said Tyler Walker, a junior running back and linebacker. turns out I not good on my left side, so they can take that and build a workout from that. Hopefully, by the time football starts back up, I be evened out. Starting next week, players will receive individualized workout routines to improve their performance on the field, Ruecker said. program is individually fit, he said. a young man is not as fast as he would like to be because his hips are out of whack, he do special hip exercises before he starts working out. The partnership isn just designed to make players stronger and faster, but also can help reduce injuries on the field, Ruecker said. did not have the knowledge to say, this young man always seems to hurt himself right around here, why is that? They are measuring the balance and flexibility of players, and hopefully that will lead to not only bigger, faster and stronger athletes, but also make them less injury prone. Ruecker said the new program is a good fit for the school. think it wonderful, he said. will help our athletes. Nike, half Tigard Back at Nike, Greene said Tigard was chosen because of its performance on the field and because it was a traditional public school. the regularness of it, Greene said. helps that I live here and work at Nike. But more than that, it just a regular public school. Athletically, the programs (chosen for the pilot program) perform at the high end of the spectrum. At the end of the day, we are trying to learn things that can apply to everybody. This is an ordinary school. The schools in the pilot program represent all walks of life from inner city schools to private Catholic schools. way we can get a look across the country and different school backgrounds, and we will see what we learn, Greene said. Strength and athletic training is common during the off season, Greene added, but the partnership gives Tigard players something they haven had before. kids work pretty dang hard, Greene said. what we will be giving them is more organized and a little more interconnected between off season, pre season and competition. If successful, the pilot program will help coaches across the country train their players, Greene said. 580521 143 Air Jordan 11 Low GS Aqua Safari White Aqua Volt With regular pedals and toe clips your foot can move a bit to find it best position. With clipless pedals your foot is held in a fixed position so it is important to get the cleat placed properly for your unique bone and muscle structure. Installing the pedals is easy but putting the cleats on your shoes can be difficult with the variations of adjustments available. Most cleats are adjustable front to back, side to side and rotationally for angle. If you get the set up of your cleats wrong it will put foot, ankle and knee out of alignment. Over time this can lead to pain and potential long term injury. In bare feet, feel for the joint (first metatarsal phlange joint for you anatomy junkies) under the ball of your foot at the base of your big toe. To pin point the location of the joint wiggle your big toe up and down. Put your shoe on and check for that point. Lightly mark the sole with chalk or marker. Now place the cleat based on the following chart. Size 36 40 5mm behind the ball of the foot Size 41 43 7mm behind the ball of the foot Size 44 46 9mm behind the ball of the foot above Size 46 10 mm behind the ball of the foot Check each foot separately as one foot is usually bigger than the other changing where the point of the big toe joint is. To find your foot angle, sit on a high bench or sturdy table with your knees bent at a 90 degree angle. Holding your feet level, lean forward until you are in your riding position. Look at the angle your feet sit at. I use a large protractor to measure the angles of each foot. This adjustment will apply mainly to Shimano and Look pedals. If you use Time pedals there isn't much angle adjustment but the pedals themselves have lateral and rotational float so your foot will find it's correct position naturally. Speedplay pedals have a rotational adjustment on the cleat to adjust for this. If your knees flair out wide when pedaling, your feet are probably too close together. Move your cleats towards the inside, closer to the bike. You may also need to put a spacer on your pedal to move it out. If your knees lean in towards the top tube it can be indicative of either too wide a stance or fore foot varus. This is a tendency for the big toe to sit higher than the baby toe. 90 per cent of people's feet sit this way because we we're made for walking not riding. Most cycling shoes have a flat toe box, so your foot is forced flat with each pedal stroke. The fix for this is either shimming your cleats, orthotic insoles or a combination of the two. By aligning your foot, you'll get more power to the pedals and reduce the chance of overuse injuries to your knees. I recommend the Lemond Lewedge shims to correct for forefoot tilt. If you feel like you can't ever find the right seat height you may have a leg length imbalance. Riding with an imbalance can lead to knee problems as well as hip and lower back pain. With this if one leg is getting correct extension the other will be over or under extending. This can be from actual bone length differences or a structural imbalance in the hips. If the difference is less than 6 mm then it usually isn't much of a problem, but anything more than this should be corrected. The general rule is to correct for half of the difference, so if discrepancy is 8 mm we adjust your shorter leg 4 mm. This can be accomplished by shimming your shorter leg cleat and moving the cleat of the long leg back slightly. This is just an example because depending on whether the difference is in your upper or lower leg, I will use different techniques to correct for it. Think of your feet as your base of power. If your base is unstable, you will not get the power to the pedals.
