    Just saying hi, my area of expertise is footwear and specifically footwear for people with foot problems, therefore I network with Podiatrists.

    Happy to start a conversation about footwear and issues with you all; perhaps you have constructive comments or critiques about certain brands? I work very closely with DB Shoes who still manufacture in the UK, and will listen to your comments and feed back.

    I attend the GDS Shoe Fair in Dusseldorf twice a year, so can look around for specific requests.

    Well hello Lisa, long time no see.

    Hopefully we can catch up at IVO 2012, you are coming?

    Hi David,

    I do wish that I was coming to IVO..... but funds do not allow sadly :wacko: I have to concentrate on the business here. I am sure it will be a great conference and hope that there is good attendance; I do know that you have Peter Reed visiting from here, Reed Medical.

    The UK I am finding challenging and exciting and am eternally grateful for my pedorthic APMGFA training that I had in Australia as it has given me credibility for sure with the podiatry world here. Everybody has been really welcoming of our service and I am sure that we will succeed - in these times, just have to keep plugging away and remain positive!

    Stay in touch David, keep me informed of the goings-on in the Pedorthic World Down Under I miss you all!

    Hi Lisa,

    I recommend DB shoes to a lot of my patients. Might I ask how you are involved?

    I am always on the look out for new footwear/materials which allows me to use standard footwear instead of having to use modular/bespoke orthopaedic footwear.

    David, If you see Peter Reed, tell him Robin said hi from the Isle of Man!



    Good to have you here on PA
