5- EMAIL Question:
I saw your blog and one of your youtube videos and thought I would mail in a gait question! I appreciate any input or information you have about this. I was wondering about people that walk with their foot in the abducted position - why is this and what are the implications for such a gait? I know some people with flat feet have that tendency but I don’t have that and walk at baseline with my foot abducted. I took note of this since I’ve developed some hip pain recently and noticed that when I make a conscious effort to walk with my feet straight it actually feels abnormal (more comfortable and natural with the feet abducted). Why is this? Any input into this puzzle would be appreciated. 
Thanks much!  -Sheeva

Hi Fellas

You talked about it several blog posts but i would love to hear you expand upon it. 

 Is it true that walking in flip flops is bad for you?  I’ve heard a lot of “experts” say it will cause your arches to fall.  Thanks! - Norma
