After an off-season workout in high school, Mike woke up the following morning with excruciating back pain. He soon found out that his L5 had shot out a quarter inch and was diagnosed with Spondylolisthesis. He spent 7 months hobbling around and didn’t want to get back surgery at 17 years old. In searching for alternative solutions, he was introduced to barefoot training. He noticed that wearing different shoes with thick soles and little pliability would throw his back out of line and cause more pain. From that point forward, he began to connect the dots on the impact that footwear has on posture and pain free movement.
He started Pedestal Footwear as a way to help people experience the many benefits of barefoot training. To Mike, nothing is more fulfilling than hearing customer stories of how Pedestals helped them move and feel better.
