Foot Solutions' staff conducts in-depth personal evaluations to help the foot-pained find the right gear to sedate their barking dogs. Staffers map every foot that walks or stampedes through the door with an advanced digital scan to determine the causes of pain by analyzing the unique bumps, curves, and stress points of each foot. Then, they use their insight to unite each pair of anklehands with appropriate shoes, such as Orthaheel sandals ($59.99), which provide unfettered access to summer breezes while cushioning each step with orthotic undercarriages and padded straps. New Balance, Brooks, MBT, and Thorlos soothe the soles of those who are on their feet all day, and walking poles help to maintain an even-keeled stride during workouts and strolls up K2.
