On PRI and Football Shoes…

I was writing to see if you had a football cleat you recommend.  I am seeing a lot of athletes these days and was wondering.

I haven’t looked at football shoes specifically, but just like running shoes, you want them to have a stabile heel counter.  It should be firm and not be able to collapse in or give laterally.  Most cleats aren’t going to have good arch support.  They should also bend at the toe box.  I did a video blogabout what to look for in shoes at the Hruska Clinic website.  This might be applicable to apply to various shoe types. You might consider adding an orthotic with good arch support.
