So this episode of SHOEphoria, we grill Kevin on current and future issues, and where he feels the industry has got it right, and more particularly, where they got it wrong! View our previous SHOEphorhia podcasts here.
Dr Kevin Kirby is a leading podiatric authority in the world in foot and lower extremity biomechanics, foot orthotic therapy and sports podiatry. He is an Adjunct Associate Professor in the Department of Applied Biomechanics at the California School of Podiatric Medicine and owner of his full-time podiatric biomechanics and surgical practice in California.
The word legend is bandied about a lot in modern society, however, our guest on this episode of SHOEphoria has well and truly earned this moniker.
Dr Kevin Kirby is a podiatric physician, author, educator, mentor, inventor and thinker, and it is impossible to downplay the influence he has had within the worlds of podiatry and biomechanics.
Kevin has also been an accomplished athlete, especially as a runner, and remains so interested in running and running shoes, that until recently, he regularly volunteered his time at his local Sacremento Fleet Feet store to help out with his knowledge.
So this episode of SHOEphoria is special, and in it, we grill Kevin on current and future issues, and where he feels the industry has got it right, and more particularly, where they got it wrong.
He brings a fascinating insight to a diverse range of issues, including the decline of running shoe durability, the impact of the Super Shoes, and how he uses certain running shoes to treat injury.
Finally, we touch on the subject of footwear for football (soccer), and get his thoughts on why it has not fundamentally changed in over 40 years.
Join us for this tour de force with Dr. Kevin Kirby.
