    Because of the importance of ankle mobility.

    I just got a pair of VS Athletics, $55 bucks shipped. And the newer ones, the hee high isnt as much as it was before.


    Ceaze, what kind of excerises would you reccomend to increase ankle mobility?

    They are but, the heels are around an inch higher than the toes. Which puts your foot and ankle in a locked position.

    I prefer to go barefoot...better ground feel, and like you said, ankle mobility is huge...most places won't allow it though

    Higher heel = less dorsiflexion

    from Joe P.

    [​IMG]

    The slant board will be placed about 18" from a wall or fence, in three different positions: frontal plane neutral, " " everted, " " inverted; at 20 degree angles. The athlete does this by turning the board sideways, then placing a few rolls of tape or weight plates on the wall side to get the sagittal plane angle. The athlete will stand on the board with his foot/knee/hip in 0 rotation. The contralateral LE will be flexed to maximum, hands as high as you can reach on the wall, hip pushed toward the wall as ROM permits. From there, the TP element is added in by horizontally abducting/adducting the thigh as ROM permits. 1 set of 20 reps, each foot, in each position. Or as long as it takes you to tape a set of ankles!

    Not only is this a terrific three dimensional mobilization for the ankle, but also for the hip! They are functionally & anatomically linked together by the way

    that's awesome. If i had a reason I'd totally get a pair. I full squat and front squat fine in my old school adidas though (flat sole)... the sole is a little soft but it hasn't seemed to create any problems for me. Squatting or deadlifting in chucks fucks my knees up though for whatever reason.

    Look at the ones released by rogue fitness. They have a smaller heel than the normal do-wins.

    Although I agree with ceaze, you should focus more on ankle mobility. I attribute oly shoes in part for my patella tendonosis.

    you think the $45 VS is the equivalent of last years standard do-win? or could it be the rogue, really doubtful
