Ski boots, water skis, toe shoes, soccer cleats, figure and hockey skates, running shoes, hiking boots, military boots, sandals, and even Hungarian dance boots, to name a few. Lance Armstrong trusted Tammy’s expertise all the way to winning his 6th and 7th Tour de France victories in 2004 and 2005.
An accomplished athlete, Tammy knows the wear and tear one’s body can take. She also knows that proper footwear and support have helped keep her body healthy. Tammy is an 11 time Ironman competitor.
In 1989, after a year of battling shin splints/medial tibial stress syndrome, she was sent for custom foot orthotics. Within two weeks, the pain was gone. She was so impressed, she began working part-time at the very same running store which specialized in the fabrication of custom orthotics. She worked for this company for eight years, honing her own skills in custom orthotic fabrication.
