Achilles tendonitis is the inflammation of the Achilles tendon, the fibrous tissue that attaches the calf muscle to the back of the heel bone, causing pain and swelling. The causes of Achilles tendonitis include overuse of the tendon, overly tight calf muscles, misalignment and improper footwear.
Footwear made of flexible material, typically featuring a sole made of rubber. Sneakers were originally sporting apparel, but are today worn much more widely as casual footwear.
K-Swiss Ultrascendor Mid Good support, a bit of an awkward height

This shoe definitely gives extra support and my Achilles isn't bothering me now that I'm wearing them. However the trade off is that they hit my ankle in an awkward spot and I need to wear a band-aide to prevent a blister. Other than that they are comfortable.
Wears this shoe: For lots of tennis

After much research based on reviews of this shoe I decided to make a purchase. It fit perfectly. I will purchase Saucony Shadow 6000 again when my current pair wears out. I found this shoe to be extremely comfortable the first time I tried them on & that hasn't changed.
Wears this shoe: daily, around home & always for walks.
