    What kind of shoe is best for someone with posterior tibial tendonitis? Are double rocker shoes such as finematics ok or are they contraindicated?

    New Balance makes many different sneakers. Some may be appropriate for your foot, others not. The same is true with all companies. You would do best going to a good shoe store with a knowledgable shoe fitter(perhaps a cped) to be sure that you get a shoe that matches your foot, gait and needs.

    The higher the heel counter of the shoe, the greater the reduction in residual pronation moments that are precipitating the PTTD. High top walking/hiking boots are ideal for this type of condition in combination with some appropriate orthotics. If the tendonitis is in the later stages , having resolved reasonably well, then running trainers with a solid, high heel counter may suffice.

    Avoid double rocker shoes. Not saying they are bad for everyone, but not great for PTTD
