Mr. G.K. from Lünen, 79, reports on his barefoot experiences with leguano
“A year ago, I'd never have dreamed of being in this situation. I'd just had some new insoles made for a pair of trainers I'd bought. Now they're just sitting there, I don't wear them any more. I was 40 years old when an orthopaedist ascertained that my left leg was 1.8cm shorter than the right. After that, I had to wear height increasing insoles. Years later I had an operation on my knee because of arthrosis. I also developed an oblique pelvis position over the years, which caused me frequent pain in the adductor muscles as well as sciatica. If I didn't keep moving, my body would be in pain. Since I started walking with leguanos six months ago, I have rediscovered the joys of fast walking, especially on flat surfaces and sometimes uphill too. Wearing leguanos regularly over the past six months has brought about a number of changes and improvements.
1. Firstly, I very quickly became more confident going up and down stairs. Straight away the leguanos put an end to stumbling, which is dangerous, and there was no more slipping on shiny soles when going downstairs.
2. Wearing leguanos has changed the way I walk. I don't bring my foot down hard on the heel any more, which is better for my knee joints.
3. There was also a third change: when I tried to put on my cushioned shoes with insoles when the weather turned bad, my whole body protested and I got painful cramp in my calves and my thighs. After a lifetime of walking with strong insoles, it’s a great experience to find I can walk much more confidently without them. I can feel solid ground under my feet and I don't turn my ankle any more.
I'm very thankful that wearing leguanos has enabled my body to adopt a new, properly balanced posture. Pulled muscles and other muscle pains are now a thing of the past, and I rarely need to go through the uncomfortable experience of correcting the sacrum.
Thank you leguano! ”
