    Heel raises suitable for sport

    I'm suffering from some Achilles tendonitis and found yesterday that having my heels slightly raised really helped. However, I did this by taking some insoles out of some fashion boots to put into my hiking shoes - which is not ideal, nor repeatable when they wear out! So, I see online many products to help, but would prefer to buy in HK. Except I have no clue where to look! Any ideas?

    If it's serious, u may want a referral to a orthopedic specialist.
    The one I used (back in Holland) made a pair of customized insoles. You might get advise not to exercises like running/hiking.
    whats also important is that u watch the way u stand. (Generally while waiting for elevator/coffee machine etc) if u stand with too much pressure on the heel, that's how ur condition persists.
