I have been known to break in a few new pairs of sneakers before I have a chance to wear them. The only difference is that the day I wear them out, I have to stop with a heel-touche.
Well, actually, it’s the other way around. The heel makes my sneakers go up and down. My heels are a bit more flexible than my usual shoes, which are more like stilettos. So they’re a bit more sensitive to heel-touches.
But you know how you get a pair of shoes that feel just right every time? You buy a pair of shoes that you know and love and then they go from good to great the day you put them on. This is what happens when you start wearing new sneakers.
I would have to say that the heel touch is the new hip flexor that’s giving us all a bit of a kick in our mid-section. It’s a stretchy, flexible muscle that’s attached to the bone in the bottom of our feet.
The heel has a very, very unique function. It’s the sort of muscle that you can really look for in your heels, but I don’t know if I’ve ever seen anything like it. I think it’s the most versatile muscle in the foot of the shoe. I could run a pair of gloves, even a pair of shoes, and it would feel a lot like a glove.
So when I think of the heel, its not the muscle like I thought it was. It looks like it is a tendon attached to the bone in your upper leg. Because it is so flexible and stretchy, I think my foot wants to flex to accommodate the stretchy tendon, which makes the shoe feel a lot more like a sock.
There’s also a lot to be said for the flexibility of the heel as a sole of a sneaker. This makes it so that the heel doesn’t need to be as rigid as other shoes, since the shoe only needs to be flexible enough to conform to your foot and stay comfortable when putting it on. I’m sure you can imagine the difference in comfort and stiffness.
The heel of the shoe actually is made of a rubber compound, rather than the more commonly used leather. The softness of the material is what allows the shoe to conform to your foot. The shoe also has a stiff sole that you can really work into your stride without feeling as though you’re doing a lot of dead-sock-bobbing.
Like many of the sneakers that are on sale today, the Hocky shoes are made from a leather that’s been treated with a special coating that’s meant to keep the leather from rubbing on your skin. This treatment is what gives the shoe its softness, but also its ability to conform to your foot.
This is a new, unique shoe for those of us who use our feet for movement. The Hocky shoes are also quite comfortable, so they can be worn for a long period of time with the usual footwear. I think it will also be really nice to wear during the summer, when you are most likely going to run around in nothing but your flip-flops.
