Last year I had a major IT band injury that set me back. This year I have been testing out a new shoe company along with 2 other great products.
The first one is my sponsor Stable 26. They make some great sock for all different sports. If you read my blog you know I ski and play hockey along with the other 3 sport I do. The socks Have different sizes of pads that you can put into the socks. As shoes break down there is extra space. The socks take up that space and keep your foot in the right place. check them out http://www.stable26.com/ I have had great success. Very happy to have them on my sponsorship team.
Now for my last one is a company that I am not sponsored by but you can bet I have a pair in all my running shoes cycling shoes ski boot and hockey skates

Without Support Collapsing feet increase movement inside the shoe. This causes a less efficient stride, and intensifies stress on feet, ankles and knees. Additional stress can cause foot pain, fatigue and risk of injury.
With Superfeet Insoles
Feet are supported and stabilized, reducing stress on feet, ankles and knees. Stride becomes more efficient, reducing fatigue and risk of injury. Can help prevent and treat plantar fasciitis, heel pain and runner’s knee.
I have been using the 2 products together the last 2 months or so and they are helping me go harder and stay out longer!
