The Cadence Story

As a kid, my Dad would tell me that if he ever wanted to know where I was or what I was up to he would just look at which shoes were NOT on my shelf.  I had shoes for all occasions, shoes that met the demands and practicalities of my sports and work - and they all had to fit with just the right amount of support and cushion. 

But not many shoes off the shelf (if any) had the support and comfort where I wanted and needed it most: the insole - the part of the shoe your foot actually contacts and feels. So I was always strategically adding a little cork here and a little cushion there for that extra support, comfort and fit. continue...
