Achilles tendon pain affects hundreds of thousands of people each year. This pain can seem unending, and the healing time is long. Chances are, if you are reading this, you are one of these people.
The Achilles tendon is a very flexible tendon that connects the calf muscle to the heel bone. This important tendon is flexible and allows for a whole range of movements—from standing, walking, running and jumping. Because the Achilles tendon is so important, any strain or tear can lead to serious problems.
If you are having consistent Achilles tendon pain, this is likely from overuse during routine exercise or intense physical activity. Some of these activities could include basketball or tennis where you have sudden starts, stops and changing direction.
Sudden changes in exercise intensity while failing to stretch can also cause Achilles tendon pain.
What if there was a way to help heal your Achilles tendon naturally. Imagine a solution that would not require surgery or powerful drugs.

When I wore these for the first time, it felt like I was walking on clouds. I was skeptical but desperate to relieve my foot pain and these made the pain go away. I've worn them for a year and a half now and looking to get another pair... I will continue to buy these shoes for life.
I have...severe plantar fasciitis for approximately 19 years...the arch support is absolutely the best I've tried, even better than my custom orthotics, and they are still my go-to shoes for everyday use. My Kuru Chicanes have taken the place of almost every other shoe in my wardrobe.
