Choosing the right soccer shoes. From Ron Lavi
Most important issue, in my opinion, which was not covered and which ended my career is the fact that Soccer Shoes come only in one width which is B->Medium.
Many soccer players have a wide foot will pay the same price I did. I developed a Neuroma (Read below)
Just imagine trying to fit a wide foot (I need W) in a B width shoe for many years.
The nerve on the bottom of your feet is basically damaged. This is a well known issue.
I had two surgeries and I cannot play soccer more than 10 minutes at a time since 1994.
My Orthopedic Surgeon (Glenn Pfeffer) and I became friends (he played soccer) and he suggested to go into a custom soccer shoes business together.
