On June 15, Holy Cross Hospital will holds its 3rd Annual “For The Health of It” fun run/walk. There are so many details that are in the planning stage but so far the group is hoping to expand the course length this year to include a timed 10k run!
And to get in the mood for the big day, The Good Sole in conjunction with the hospital is celebrating its 5th Birthday by kicking off our Walking Club on April 1! Phyliss Nichols – Taos’ own outstanding volunteer - is helping to head up this club.
Anyone is welcome to join. We are currently working with various vendors to help us secure incentives for reaching various milestones such as 100 miles, 250 miles, 500 and so forth. We plan on having some gatherings to cover topics such as stretching techniques, gait analysis, how to improve time and mileage, and what gear will help keep you going.
Yes, you are on the honor system but we do have a chart posted at The Good Sole and we ask that folks stop by on a weekly to bi-weekly basis to track their progress. We are also fortunate to be working with various groups who are helping us develop some walking trail maps with mileage to help make the routine more interesting.
Spring is upon us and we will have more details before April 1. Stop by The Good Sole to get your name on the chart and happy trails!

Cooler weather is upon us and it is boot season! We have listened to you and have brought in a variety of boots that are both fashionable and warm so you will go into the coming months looking AND feeling great! When you are making that transition from the freedom of summer sandals to the cozy comfort of winter boots, here are some reminders:
Most boots are sized by whole sizes; and it is safe to guess that if you are between sizes you should go up (unless the boot has shearling that will pack down). And, there is always heel slippage with a boot -- which is good; when the heel is too tight, blisters occur. The slippage will decrease as the shank of the boot is broken in and becomes accustomed to your foot.
The biggest challenge women face in this area is making sure that taller boots have ample calf room. Since we live in a terrain where we walk more - our calves our more muscular than a city gal. So, we have talked with our vendors to try to accommodate higher elevation gals and offer some generous leg space.
On Thursday Oct. 25 and Nov. 1 – stop by the shop from 4:30 to 6:45 pm and take a look at our boot selection. We will be hosting a "Boots and Burgundy" (–or some kind of wine) and cheese gathering and you can get 20% of any one single item -- – so treat yourself!
And stay tuned -- we will have more invites for special events via our facebook page in the next few weeks!

Fall into Fashion!
We have just started to get in our fall styles at The Good Sole -- so here is a quick preview!
We are happy to introduce Cobb Hill. This shoe line is designed by the same group that does New Balance -- so they really know feet and comfort! The great plus about this line is it comes in widths - so it works with wide feet or feet that has bunions or other toe issues.
Clogs are a great fall style and Naot has some great colors to complete your fall wardrobe.
And, as always, Dankso has some great styles. As you can see from the pictures Dansko is offering some more heel height. But unlike other heels, Dansko has its unique fit which makes these styles perfect for work and play.
Stay tuned...we have new styles arriving weekly!

This is the time of year when most stores are in sale mode. School is just around the corner and in the retail world, it’s time to move into to the next season of fashion.
One question we are asked over and over again at The Good Sole is about the pricing of our athletic shoes. So, here is some insight to help you understand why a particular shoe may be less than what you are seeing on shelves elsewhere:
Shoes in the athletic world can change styles anywhere between 90 days to 6 months. So that moss blue model you saw in February won’t be available in April, and in most cases will either be on sale or unavailable. Also, it’s not just the color that changes; updates can include adding different features such as extra support, new lacing system, expanded width, etc.
What you are seeing on the internet or in big box store ads are older models. They will be on sale — but it is because they have been updated or discontinued.
We work closely with our vendors to get the best footwear for our terrain that best suits our customers. That is why you will only see a few models from vendors; we can’t carry everything that they offer. However, we are more than happy to do special orders if desired.
Remember – shoes are like tires. It depends on how much you use them and what type of terrain you cover. So the investment is worthwhile!

It’s that time of year when we celebrate freedom – and to keep with the theme we want to encourage everyone to free themselves from pain – and that usually starts with the feet!
We offer a great selection of footwear that is supportive, functional – and yes, even a little fashionable. And sometime that is all one needs to wear to enjoy walking, hiking and just strolling around Taos.
However, sometimes we may need to enhance footwear with either an orthotic or some sort of modification to either support our body or alleviate pain.
We are Taos’ Orthotic Facility and continue to use the same lab for custom orthotics as in the past. These are terrific; a foam impression is made of your foot and then a plaster mold is cast, and finally you get your orthotic. This is great for the person who has severe pain either in the foot or needs help in the alignment of knees, hips, and back. While these customer orthotics work in athletic and hiking shoes, they often do not fit in loafers or women’s fashion shoes.
Over the years, we have found that many people who have minor issues with their feet can find relief with an OTC (over the counter) orthotic. OTC orthotics offer extra support and cushion without the major investment of custom orthotics. This is a big advantage and most people find they can afford several pairs to put into a variety of shoes.
The Pedorthic Footwear Association held its annual meeting last November in Albuquerque. The main buzz among the seasoned pedorthists and shoe fitting experts attending was the advantage of the new heat -moldable custom orthotics.
These are innovative insoles that bring you most of the benefits of custom orthotics at a very affordable price. At The Good Sole we are pleased to introduce the Footbalance system which offers a complete foot analysis and custom molded insoles on the same day.. Each insole is individually custom molded for each foot, to ensure perfect fit and support no matter your arch type, foot shape or differences between the left and right foot. Your insoles are available for use immediately. If you need extra support under the ball of the foot, it can be added just for you.
So, whether you overpronate, supinate, suffer from Plantar Fasciitis or pain in the ball of the foot, give us a call to schedule an appointment. Our trained staff will be glad to walk you through the various options available and zero in on the best one for you and your feet!
Here is a preview of what happens to create your heat-moldable orthotics:
1. Your arches are analyzed with the use of a podoscope
2. Pictures are taken of your ankles to analyze your alignment with the help of a computer.
3. You stand on heated, unmolded insoles that have been positioned on the molding pillows.
4. Our expert s expertly molds each of the heated insoles to fit your feet perfectly while maintaining correct alignment.
5. Once the insoles have been individually molded, the Footbalance expert ensures that the insoles confirm to the natural arch of each foot.
6. The insoles may be trimmed to fit your footwear if needed
7. Your new 100% customized Footbalance insoles are ready for use. The entire process takes only minutes, which is not a lot of time to spend on the welfare of your feet!
See you soon! Happy 4th of July!

Well – March has come in more as a lamb than a lion – but that can change!
Everyone that we visit with is so excited to get out and enjoy our great weather –and, somewhere in the conversation folks are anxious to get their feet ready to see sunlight again. And after being ignored for a few months our toes do need some TLC.
We wanted to release our newsletter yesterday which was National Pi Day –3.14 – (please- someone laugh) but our focus got caught up on National Toe Day which is April 6. Yes that day is Good Friday but now is the time to start getting ready for sandal season!
We are partnering up with local businesses so stay tuned for event invites and updates via The Good Sole newsletters and Facebook pages. And now Pinterest?? This social media world keeps us busy! But, as with everything that we try to do – we are giving you an educational piece of our newsletter. Since it is toes there are three exercises we recommend:
OUR TOES NEED EXERCISE: Even though they are the smallest appendages on our body, we need to work the little muscles in the toes to improve balance and help our feet through the full range of motion The three I am suggesting should be done while sitting ( and yes, socks and shoes should not be worn!)
One: Place a thick rubber band around your toes and spread them apart. Hold for five seconds and do it for 10 times on each foot 3 days a week.
Second: Get two pans/buckets/ baskets and…put a group of either small river rocks or marbles in one container. Then, transfer the items from one bucket of items to the other with one foot, and then back to the other foot. CAUTION : Dogs and cats may think this is fun and try to eat the items so be ready to say “No!”
Third: Grab a towel and do the same exercise as in number one – scrunch!
So, keep those toes healthy and happy. And stay tuned - there are more irrelevant holidays that we will focus on in the next few months!
THE PLANET DRIVE
We are so excited – The Good Sole was selected to host the planet Jupiter during the Taos Charter School’s Planet Drive
. This is one of the most fun events that a local school has done and it is headed up by one of our favorite teachers, Rich Greywulf ( Mr. G) who loves taking care of toes! – he runs in Vibram 5 Fingers!

We like to keep our information timely – and since it is Valentine’s Day, we figured we should try to focus on something to do with the heart! We all know that the heart is the workhorse of our circulatory system. Throughout an average day, the heart pumps blood to all of the extremities as equally as it can. Gravity, however, often causes blood to pool in the lower legs and feet, causing circulatory problems such as edema, phlebitis and thrombosis. But in most people, especially workers who are on their feet all day such as hospitality, retail or health care workers, all of this blood pooling can cause fatigue and leg cramps. Elevating the legs and feet may alleviate the pain temporarily, but it often returns after a few hours back on your feet.
Many of us think of an older relative who had to wear thick compression socks to increase blood circulation. Remember the term support socks – when I hear that term I think of a thick skin colored sock.
Well – like everything –compression socks have changed! They are now referred to as circulatory or graduated compression socks and you will find more and more people wearing them whether they are doing a long shift at work or just finishing up a long run or workout session.
The advantage to these socks is they help the body maintain a stable core body temperature and heart rate – so the body doesn’t have to work so hard to get blood to the legs. It allows oxygenated blood and nutrients to get to muscles faster so they can repair and rebuild, The result is less swelling and pain for the person wearing the socks.
Goodhew has just introduced a line of circulator socks for both men and women. The graduated compression is a 15 to 20 rating which is considered mid level compression and will allow faster recovery with less fatigue. Ratings below this range are not strong enough to produce results for active people. And higher ratings (30 or more) are for older or inactive folks who have a serious medical need for stronger circulation. The colors are great (no skin tones!) and all contain merino wool. Check them out and show your legs some love!

I am always amused at how many customers (mostly men) are surprised to find out that we measure feet in our store as a matter of habit. They are often even more surprised to find that their foot size has changed in the years since last measured. Some are shocked to find that one foot is larger than the other or that their narrow foot has morphed into a wide.
There is also confusion when their size in one shoe style is different than another. Shoes, like clothing, vary in size. You may wear a 38 in a Dansko sandal, but a 39 in a Dansko clog. And you may wear an 8 ½ in a Merrell Jungle Moc but a 9 in a Keen hiking boot.
Measuring and proper sizing are critical to healthy feet. Here is an example. I have found that, without proper measurement, people with wide feet tend to always choose a size bigger than they need. Recently a man whose foot we measured at 8 ½ wide told me he had been buying size 10 for years. He thought he had to go bigger to accommodate his wide feet and have room for his toes. But his feet still hurt and he could not figure out why. Well his feet hurt because he was wearing a 10 medium instead of an 8 ½ wide. The arch of the shoe was totally misaligned with the arch of his foot! We fitted him with an 8 ½ extra wide pair of New Balance shoes and the fit was perfect! They hit his arches in the right spot and he had just enough room for his toes. For the first time in years, his feet felt great.
An important factor to remember is that one cannot get hung up on the size of shoe as measured by a number. The difference between each half size is 1/6 inch longer and 1/8 inch wider. So when trying on a shoe and walking around the store make sure that the arch feels like it is in the correct support area and make sure your toes aren’t hitting the very end of the shoe. This is especially important for our terrain. Most stores have a small ramp that you can walk down to make sure that the toes aren’t hitting.
Sometimes the shoe will meet a person’s needs but they may still need some extra support. We offer a wide selection of premade and custom orthotics that can enhance the footwear. We also have an assortment of pads to customize shoes for the individual “personality” of your feet.
After shopping at big boxes for years, many of us have forgotten what good customer service is all about. But the next time you are in The Good Sole or any full service shoe store, ask to have your feet measured. You might be surprised to find out your true size!

Remember that weird aunt or distant relative who gave you a pair of socks for Christmas? Well, the sock world has changed and today everyone wants that goofy relative so they can get socks.
We have expanded our sock selection at The Good Sole. We have all kinds, all brands, colors, weights and sizes. We have ski socks, snowboard socks, hiking socks, hunting socks, running socks, casual socks, and of course – toe and flip flop socks.
One of the most intriguing socks is Columbia’s Omni Heat socks. There is a special reflector shield on this sock that helps our feet conserve heat to keep us warmer.
We carry Smartwool, Fits, Bridgedale, Columbia, Goodhew, Point 6, Dansko, Injinji, Thorlo and New Balance. So stop in and treat someone – or yourself - to some toasty comfortable socks this holiday season!

On the Sunday after Thanksgiving blue posters were left at the storefronts all around Taos Plaza.
The poster read:
Don’t Throw it away.
Buy it local. Keep it local.
For every $100 spent in a locally-owned independent store, $68 returns to the community through taxes, wages, donations and other expenditures. Spend that in a national chain, only $43 stay here. Spend it online and nothing comes home.
It’s a great poster and a serious reminder how we all need to support each other. Both The Good Sole and Taos Mountain Outfitters appreciate the local support we receive. I realize we sometimes don’t have every style or size for everyone, but most of the time we can do special orders and make you happy.
Have a great holiday season and be sure to join us at Taos Mountain Outfitters on Friday, Dec. 9 for our Santa Sleigh Ride from 4 to 6 p.m. There will lots of prizes and guaranteed fun!
And, thank you to whoever is behind the mystery poster on buying local. It is a real wake-up call for all of us!

The fall season is upon us and there have been numerous sightings of bears. And, these aren’t the bears that wear hats or bow ties. I have had friends encounter bears from Williams Lake to the Weimar area.
Bears are preparing for hibernation so don’t leave birdseed, food garbage etc. out for them. And, to protect yourself out hiking or on early morning treks - Taos Mountain Outfitters does sell bear spray and bear bells. Both are used for different purposes. The spray will protect you if you have a face to face encounter and the bells will just make noise so you won’t startle a bear.
PLEASE – read the label on bear spray before going on a hike. Do not use the spray near a dog. This is a beautiful time of the year – so enjoy!

Ever look at someone’s foot – or even your own foot—and wonder what that protrusion is pushing out below your big toe? What is that bump? Well, what you are viewing is the third most common foot ailment – a bunion.
It's a bit confusing, but the word bunion actually refers to three different medical conditions: soft tissue enlargement, hallux abducto valgus (HAV) and metatarsus primus varus (MPV). All three of these problems generally occur together and are what most people think of as a typical "bunion."
HAV is a fancy way of saying that your big toe (hallux) is rotated and leaning toward your other toes. Sometimes the deformity becomes really severe and the big toe can either sit on top or underneath your second toe. The other condition, MPV, involves the first metatarsal becoming rotated and leaning too far toward your other foot. The hard bone you feel when you touch the bunion (the side of your big toe joint) is the head of the first metatarsal that has shifted out of position.
Bunions are usually termed mild, moderate or severe. Just because you have a bunion does not necessarily equal pain. There are some people with very severe bunions and no pain and people with mild bunions and a lot of pain.
Bunions are much more common in women than in men, mainly because we women will sacrifice sensibility for sexy – which means poor fitting shoes. Daily at The Good Sole we have ladies calling their bunions “onions” because they are so huge.
In countries where people do not wear shoes there are not as many bunions, but bunions are still found in some non-shoe wearing people. Here in the USA there are a greater number of people who have bunions, however, there are factors other than shoes that contribute to bunions.
Heredity plays a part. You do not inherit the bunions, but you inherit the foot type that may lead to bunions. Certain foot types cause the bones to change position and go out of alignment.
So – next time you are around your grandparents, parents, aunts, uncles, sisters and brothers – take a look.
Possible causes of bunions:
• Shoes (especially high-heeled shoes)
• Flat feet (pes planus) and pronation (foot rolls in)
• Amputation of the second toe
• Neuromuscular disorders such as cerebral palsy, rheumatoid arthritis, poliomyelitis.
• Shortening of the achilles tendon
• Ruptured posterior tibialis tendon
Non-surgical treatment will not make the bunion go away, but it will hopefully decrease the signs and symptoms you have and help you get rid of the pain. There are various bunion regulators and other devices that may help.
At The Good Sole, we have had several patients including ourselves (yes, several of us do have bunions) who use toe socks to help keep the bunion from getting bigger. Lately, more bunion folks have been wearing Vibram Five Fingers ( yes- the funny toe shoes) to help and so far the reports have been good.
Some other solutions to help with bunions are:
• Wider shoes
• Extra depth shoes
• Stretch shoes (Don at The Good Sole is the best bunion buster this side of the Mississippi and can get most shoes to accommodate bunions)
• Padding, splints, toe spacers
• NSAIDs (Aleve, Advil, ibuprofen, etc.)
• Arch supports
Foot exercises and toe stretches can also help to keep the foot mobile, maintain flexibility, and strengthen muscles.
• Toe stretches. Stretching out your toes can help keep them limber and offset foot pain. To stretch your toes, point your toes straight ahead for 5 seconds and then curl them under for 5 seconds. Repeat these stretches 10 times. These exercises can be especially beneficial if you also have hammertoes.
• Toe flexing and contracting. Pressing your toes against a hard surface such as a wall, to flex and stretch them; hold the position for 10 seconds and repeat three to four times. Then flex your toes in the opposite direction; hold the position for 10 seconds and repeat three to four times.
• Stretching your big toe. Using your fingers to gently pull your big toe over into proper alignment can be helpful as well. Hold your toe in position for 10 seconds and repeat three to four times.
• Ball roll. To massage the bottom of your foot, sit down, place a golf ball or a Foot Rubz on the floor under your foot, and roll it around under your foot for two minutes. This can help relieve foot strain and cramping.
• Towel curls. You can strengthen your toes by spreading out a small towel on the floor, curling your toes around it, and pulling it toward you. Repeat five times. Gripping objects with your toes like this can help keep your foot flexible.
• Picking up marbles. Place around 20 marbles on the floor in front of you and use your foot to pick the marbles up one by one and place them in a bowl.
If you have questions about your bunion, you should always consult your podiatrist. But feel free to stop by The Good Sole and we can visit with you about some of the above options to help your bunion not become an onion!

It is hot outside – and of course – our feet get hot.Have you ever had your feet feel so hot that you couldn’t wait to get somewhere and slip off your shoes or sandals – only to pass out from the smell of stinky feet!
The two most common and prime reasons that contribute the most to smelly feet are sweating from the feet and the type of shoes worn. Sweating, as we know, is an essential body process that not only maintains our body temperature but also assists in removing waste products from the body.
And --each foot has more than 250,000 sweat glands - so no wonder our feet smell so bad.
The main reason behind this odor is the bacteria – or more precisely the waste products of the bacteria ingesting the sweat. The bacteria excrete waste in the form of odor that sometimes smells like rotten onions or rotten eggs (let’s face it – neither is a great smell)
If you or a special someone suffers from this, there is hope!
Here are a few suggestions:
*Keep good hygiene by washing your feet daily with lukewarm water and anti-bacterial soap for the removal of bacteria.
*Wearing clean and dry socks made of wool, wool cotton mix and special synthetic knits made for athletic wear will move the moisture away from the foot and help the feet to breathe better. We have a great selection of Smartwool, Fits, Goodhew, and Thorlo socks that can help. Avoid wearing nylon socks and stockings as they don't allow the feet to breathe. Socks made of 100% cotton do breathe, but they also retain moisture which can contribute to foot odor.
*Make sure you change your socks daily and wash them after wearing as this will minimize the chances of bacteria to breed.
*Don't wear the same pair of shoes everyday ( of course we are going to say this) and give at least a day for the previous pair of shoes to dry out so that the built up moisture and smell gets removed.
*Don't wear shoes that are tight on your feet, and also purchase removable insoles for your shoes so that you can wash them occasionally. This will not only help you get rid of the odor, but will also help with the wear and tear of the shoes as the insoles absorb the moisture, not the shoe.
Of all the solutions for smelly feet, most experts (yes, there are experts on stinky feet) say that soaking the feet in strong black tea for 30 minutes once in a week is a highly effective. The tannic acid present in the tea destroys the bacteria and closes the pores which keep the feet dry for a longer duration of time.
Another solution is soaking your feet in two quarts of warm water containing two tablespoons of Epsom salt. Similarly, soaking your feet in a bowl filled with warm water and oats for 10 - 15 minutes is another solution.
To save a shoe – there are some different solutions. If the shoe can’t be washed, some people have had success with adding baking soda and swishing it around – but this is messy. Others have put the shoe in the freezer but again – when you go to the ice cube tray you are kinda grossed out. At The Good Sole we have the 10 Seconds Brand of shoe disinfectant and deodorizer which is terrific. It is a staff favorite and has saved many of our shoes.
So So – let’s enjoy the warm weather and feel free to take off your shoes in front of company!
