The 7th 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.
Inside you'll find:
- Tried-and-true methods of footcare from numerous experts

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.
After more than 25 years of treating feet and reading about treating feet, I've found nothing, absolutely nothing, as helpful as Fixing Your Feet.

From heels to toes, products to pathology, resources to rehabilitation, this book has it all. An essential guide.
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.
