Shoe with distorted stiffener and heel outward
The calcaneal varus may be hereditary, therefore, monitor your children’s feet.
To correct your calcaneal varus, stabilize your ankle joint and fight against the premature wear of your shoes;
- Place the Pronator Heels inside all your shoes to straighten the heel.
- If the wear of the shoes is too pronounced repair them or replace them.
