    • New blister prevention chapter

    Fixing Your Feet is a comprehensive guide to injury prevention and treatment for outdoor adventurers. Foot pain and injuries can thwart even the most experienced hikers and athletes. Foot expert and ultra runner John Vonhof discredits the conventional wisdom of 'no pain, no gain,' teaching instead how the interplay of anatomy, biomechanics, and footwear can lead to happy or hurting feet. The 6th edition of Fixing Your Feet covers all that any active person needs to know to find out what works now and also hundreds of miles down the trail.

    This 6th edition has an important new chapter, Blister Prevention – A New Paradigm. It contains new information about blister formation and introduces the concept of shear, which in turn, changes the way we look at blister prevention and treatment.

    This comprehensive resource covers the full gamut of footwear basics, injury prevention, and treatments. If it can happen to a foot, it's covered in this book.

     

    Reviews

    As a veteran of more than 80 marathons as well as ultramarathons up to 100 miles, and being a podiatrist for 18 years, I thought I knew it all. John’s comprehensive approach of asking the so-called medical experts as well as the real experts out in the trenches for their tried-and-true advice will bring you more value for your endurance event than a podiatry degree ever will.

    Just about everything I have learned and passed on about working on endurance athletes’ and soldiers’ feet I have learned from watching John completely and patiently repair blistered feet that I would have considered candidates for amputation.

    This is it—the best book ever written on foot care. Everyone who has been bothered by foot problems or wants to prevent them should own this book.
