Use "Shoe Goo" to repair holes or build up worn areas in the soles of rubber-soled shoes ("sneakers", running shoes, etc.) If you wet your finger with warm water before spreading the "goo", it won’t stick to your finger.
A tip for helping avoid both tripping and wearing out the toes of shoes: "place a ribbon of "Shoe Goo" on the sole about 1/4 to 1/2 inch from the toe. The added strip lifts the shoe just enough to keep me from catching the tip of my shoe."
Running shoes with toes that "curl up" may be easier to walk in than ones with straight toes, as well as "high-top" style athletic shoes.
If you wear down the heels of your shoes on the inside or outside edge, consider having a shoe repair store install "taps" on your shoes.

We are excited that Giving Tuesday is coming up soon. It is a once a year event and is a perfect accent to the holiday season. Unbeknownst to the commercial world, the holiday season is not about who gets more for me, me, me. It is about that special feeling you get when you know you have really helped out someone you care about or love. It is knowing that the dollar you give today is going to blossom into a million dollars worth of relief from suffering for the people with HSP and PLS. Welcome to Giving Tuesday and we Thank You for your consideration.
When Clinical Trials begin in 2017 it may require as many people as possible for the Clinical Trial to be effective. If you have HSP or PLS, please add your information to our data base so we can keep you informed. We are missing a lot people's email address, so if you just want to add your email address. just enter your name, address and email and we'll add it. That way, we will be able to reach you quickly at a lower cost. Your privacy is very important to us. We will never share any of your information with any individual or company without your permission.
