Now in a revised and expanded second edition, including an expanded section on running footwear and additional sports-specific recommendations, this updated, practical resource provides a concise and logical approach to prescribing footwear that will maximize performance and minimize injury in athletes. From fundamentals ― including athletic foot types, basic biomechanics and gait evaluation ― to step-by-step guidance through assessment and prescription of shoes, socks, lacing, inserts, and orthoses, this book is both comprehensive and easily accessible. A new section has been added to cover the array of different considerations for running footwear (barefoot, minimalist, maximalist), as well as new sport-specific recommendations. As in the previous edition, referral, coding and billing are also addressed. Photographs and drawings clearly illustrate key concepts, and wherever relevant, the authors have incorporated evidence-based medicine. 

By presenting new and updated essential information in a user-friendly format, Athletic Footwear and Orthoses in Sports Medicine, Second Edition will prove to be invaluable for sports medicine physicians, podiatrists, orthopedists, physical therapists, and athletic trainers.

    This book is OK. I think its a bit out of date now. I would not recommend it particularly to podiatrists (like me) as it lacks depth and the chapters are a touch superficial. I think if you are coming from a sports background generally and don't already have much foot and ankle knowledge then I'm sure it will be very helpful. but if your already lower limb trained then there are better books out there.
