Retail Store Update With Focus On Minimalist And Natural Footwear

Mark Cucuzzella, MD

The running, walking and lifestyle shoe market has evolved greatly over the last 10 years. Patients are constantly asking about what shoes they should buy. Minimalism shifted to maximalism and now what I have witnessed is a settling into what would be best termed as natural footwear. The goal in prescribing natural footwear is to restore normal foot strength and function. In this talk we will walk you through the retail center Two Rivers Treads in West Virginia. We will update you on current shoe lines and models and their features. We will also share complementary products to support natural foot health and retraining.
