NBA star LeBron JamesNBA star LeBron James following a basketball game and keeping with a personal tradition, tossed his shoes into the crowd.  Minutes later, the loudspeaker annouced if the people who caught the shoes of LeBron could come to the scorers table.  James did not want his shoes back as he has hundreds, but he forgot to take out his orthotics; not only because they typically cost more than $500 a pair, but because the orthotic inserts help reduce common injuries such as plantar fasciitis (heel pain) and stress fractures.  Podiatrist Dr. Alan Shih says that orthotics help in many ways by improving mechanics, reducing injuries, and improving performance.

A teammate of Lebron, Ilgauskas swears by his orthotics having overcome repeated foot injuries that required multiple surgeries.  Zydrunas Ilgauskas says, "Forget athletes, I think everyone should have them just to walk around."
