Signs of a Bad Shoe

Signs of a Good Shoe

Heel counter does not fold in.
Shoe bends in the toe box easily and not in the middle of the shoe. Toe box bend should not be too stiff.
No outside heel give.
Heel should be symetrical.

When walking you should be able to sense stability of the heel throughout the gait cycle as well as arch support/contact as you step through and push off your big toe.
