Wasn’t sure whether this should go in gear or general, hmmmm.
Any other TriTalkers wear orthotics?
I’ve worn them for about 30 years and did try the without option a few times sadly gives me great pains in the ankles… in fact the whole reason I was fitted with them back in 1989.
I have had the full length handmade versions for years - they suit me and my foot as I am always susceptible to sessamoiditus and thus need the extra cushioning around my toes and ball of big toe. The 3/4 ones are no good for me.
My previous supplier has retired and I am struggling to find anyone who understands a) that we don’t all want 3/4 pairs, and b) that the full length have to be semi-solid and not too flimsy due to the fact that they are being rammed in and out of shoes all the time, not to mention shoes with a narrow hole due to our tri laces. As an example 3 pairs running shoes minimum, road, trail, fell, not to mention training, cycling, off road cycling etc etc.
Anyone else use them, if so how many pairs do you have, handmade or off the shelf, how long do yours last.
ps please don’t let me be the only flappy flat footed tri 'round here!
