Hip Pain

Unsure of your arch type (high or low)? Wet your foot and stamp it on the ground, the imprint will determine your arch type. High arches require mid-sole cushioning whereas low arches require purchasing reinforced insoles. Asics Gel-Cirrus 33 paired with Aetrex Orthotics will help prevent the pain in your arches.
