PRLog - Apr. 21, 2011 - The therapeutic walking shoe company 12 Hour Shoe has partnered with the National Posture Institute, the leader in posture and body alignment education programs, to bring consumers the best footwear on the market.
12 Hour Shoe has quickly earned a reputation as an authority on comfort and wellness walking shoes that keep users’ feet comfortable all day long. 12 Hour Shoe was developed under the direction of Dr. Richard Lennihan, a pioneer in impact reduction and wellness footwear.
Together with the National Posture Institute, the makers of 12 Hour Shoe expect to provide quality, comfortable walking shoes for working professionals like nurses, teachers and retail associates who spend most of their day on their feet. The use of the 12 Hour Shoe is intended to alleviate many of the issues associated with long hours of standing and walking: foot pain, ankle swelling, fatigue and heaviness in the legs.
“We are almost all heel strikers with impact occurring along a narrow strip across the back and outer portion of the heel,” explains Dr. Lennihan M.D. “Shoes are not properly designed.” Until now. The 12 Hour Shoe was invented and patented by Dr. Lennihan M.D. , a physician, surgeon, vascular specialist -- and runner -- who is dedicated to helping people find the best footwear to help them get through the day.
