Walk Without Pain
Your Resource for Enjoying an Active Lifestyle with Less Pain
By Cam White
For nine years, the staff at Total Relief Footwear helped over 15,000 Central Texans suffering from foot, leg and back pain. We saw almost every painful condition imaginable. Countless cases of plantar fasciitis, Morton's neuromas, arthritic conditions and painful conditions affecting the ankle, knee, hip and back joints. We devoted ourselves to constant study, and discovered a world of shoe and foot care technologies that significantly improved the quality of our customer's lives. Our store closed in 2012, but the pursuit of great footwear technologies, coupled with our desire to share knowledge continues. This website will focus on beneficial footwear products, why we like them, and where to find them.
Important Note: If you are suffering from foot, leg or back pain - please consult with your physician. The views expressed on this website are the opinions of the author, and not a substitute for sound medical advice.

Athletic Walking Shoe: Prospecs "Power" Series
Winner: "Best Fitness Walking Shoe for 2013" About.com "Reader's Choice" Awards
Honorable Mention: SHAPE Magazine: 2013 SHAPE Shoe Awards (Walking Category)
If you are looking for a walking shoe that offers exceptional stability, combined with cushioning, Prospecs may be the perfect shoe for you. They are exceptionally well-built, durable and extremely comfortable. Nothing gimmicky about this shoe at all. Every aspect in the design of the Prospecs "Power" series has been extremely well thought-out, and the end result is a shoe that may allow you to walk greater distances with far less pain and discomfort .
At the core of Prospecs technology is the unique, patented "MoveFrame™" cell. This component acts like a "spine" which is embedded in the midsole. It has alternating "ribs" that push against each other, providing noticeable shock absorption throughout the entire stride. A rigid heel counter stabilizes the hindfoot, and it is nearly impossible for the foot to pronate (roll-in) or supinate (roll-out) excessively. This shoe makes your foot travel in a smooth, straightforward manner with exceptional stability and cushioning. The insole has added arch support and cushioning The Prospecs "Power" series has excellent padding on the tongue and collar, and the insole is practically an over-the-counter orthotic with nice arch support and heel cushioning. Finally, the shoes are lined with Outlast®, a temperature-regulating fabric that either absorbs or emits heat to help keep feet at a constant temperature.
Prospecs aren't just for fitness walking. They are getting rave reviews from nurses, and people who work on their feet for a living. If you are an active adult who likes the idea of having the security of a stable shoe, combined with very pleasant cushioning, then Prospecs deserves your consideration.
