Recommended Footwear/Shoe List

This is a list of shoes that provide adequate support and help maintain a neutral pelvis from a PRI standpoint.

(Based from Lori Thomsen’s recommendations, Hruska Clinic/Postural Restoration Institute)

Signs of a Good Shoe:

  • Heel should feel stable when you walk or run 
  • Heel counter should not fold in 
  • MINIMAL to NO give in outer heel counter 
  • Shoe should bend in the toe box easily and not in the middle of the shoe, should not be too stiff 
  • Ability to find and feel the arch of the shoe 
  • Ability to push off your big toe when walking or running

Motion Control: Good for flat feet

Stability:Good for medium/low arch feet and PRI orthotics in some cases
Neutral: Good for high arch feet and best with PRI orthotics

S-M-L-: Indicates the frame of the individual the shoe can support (example S would support a small frame person)
