Fashion Pulse Mom brings news from Western PA: the Therafit Shoe are “shockingly comfortable, in fact, incredibly comfortable!” Endorsed by the National Posture Institute and created by Dr. Lisa Masterson, of the Emmy Award- winning series, “The Doctors,” the shoe features an outsole that can be adjusted to allow an increase or decrease in impact resistance as well as cushioning and support so that the shock of each step is distributed downward and outward.
