Do all VFFs have a very stiff piece that pushes against the back of the heel?
I'm really bummed today. Starting about 3 days ago, I started having pain in the back of my heel (right where that bump of bone is) when wearing my VFF Classics. It was OK....hurt a bit to walk, didn't hurt at all to run. Today, it hurts just to have VFFs on
I googled it, and it sounds exactly like Haglunds Deformity:
"Haglund’s deformity is often called “pump bump” because the rigid backs of pump-style shoes can create pressure that aggravates the enlargement when walking. In fact, any shoes with a rigid back, such as ice skates, men’s dress shoes, or women’s pumps, can cause this irritation."
Do all styles of VFF have that really stiff spine up the back? I'm going to be so sad if I have to stop wearing them--they feel fantastic otherwise. I also wonder about going up one size and getting Sprints so they aren't held on just by tension.
Zone diet on and off for several years....worked, but too much focus on exact meal composition
