When we asked Darin Egan about his experience at Foot Solutions this is what he had to say:
“I went into Foot Solutions in Stillorgan Village in February 2012 in preparation for my climb of Mount Kilimanjaro the following September. I wanted to make sure that I had the correct support and footwear to get me from the beginning to the end of the climb without any pain or damage being done. I was put through a complete Foot and Gait analysis by Kayt who then advised me on what type of support I should be wearing whilst training for the climb itself. She measured and fitted me for a pair of Custom Made Arch Supports, which were then fitted into a pair of Brooks training shoes which she advised me to wear in the gym and when training/running for the climb. Kayt also made sure that the supports fitted well into my walking boots which I would be wearing for the climb.
In September I successfully climbed Kilimanjaro and with the help of Foot Solutions I was pain free and comfortable all the way!” I would recommend that anybody who is training for either a climb like mine or simply training to keep fit should pay a visit to their nearest Foot Solutions store – after all as the old saying goes “Prevention is better than Cure”. Thanks Kayt!
