The sizing is very funky. I have a 10 1/2 size feet. At the store nothing really fit me properly. So I did not bother with the Chuck's. You won't get much support out of them. They allow your...

Re: High Blood Pressure!

If you don't have a doctor then you should get a good one. Have a open dialog, but be careful many doctors like meds as a easy fix. Do you have family history of high BP. If so maybe no avoiding...

Re: Pros and cons of squatting bare foot
