A recent study by Himan and Bennell called the “Advances in Insoles and Shoes for Knee Osteoarthritis,” found that shoes that were flat and low while remaining flexible instead of stabilizing were one of the best choices for those with knee pain. Walking shoes that allow you to have optimal foot movement within the shoe will help to alleviate pain when walking. Over pronation is a problem for you if you have bad knees.

In an intricate process of translation and mistranslation similar to the game of ‘Telephone’ which the British call ‘Chinese Whispers’ designers conjoin disparate stylistic references into a fantastic pastiche of Chinese aesthetic and cultural traditions.”The Costume Institute will be joining forces with Met Department of Asian Art for the exhibition which will be spread over several parts of the Museum the first time since 2006 that it has teamed up with another curatorial department. The different sections will start in Anna Wintour Costume Center’s Lizzie and Jonathan Tisch Gallery which will feature, as the Met tells us, “a series of or conversations through time and space, focusing on Imperial China; Nationalist China, especially Shanghai in the 1920s and 1930s; and Communist China, with an emphasis on changing images of Chairman Mao Scenes from films by noted Chinese directors like will provide extra illustration, and Chinese “women of style” such as Wellington Koo, Madame Chiang Kai shek (Soong May Ling), and Empress Dowager Cixi will be spotlighted.Upstairs, in the Chinese Galleries, visitors will find fashion from the 18th century to the present displayed with Chinese decorative arts, and then, in the Astor Court, the exhibition will turn to Chinese opera.
