I have been reading about how to determine the optimal forward lean, and I have a question.
When I flex my ankles, my shin bone is at 64 degrees from horizontal, or a bend of 26 degrees from vertical.
But when I stand relaxed, my shin bone is at 79 degrees from horizontal, or a bend of 11 degrees from vertical. So if I subtract this 11 degrees from 26 degrees above, I have roughly 15 degrees of bend.
Measured by a doctor, (lying flat on my stomach, with the doctor bending my ankle and measuring the dorsiflexion) it is 14 degrees.
My boots have a net forward lean of 9.5 degrees (13.5 forward lean less 4 degrees bootboard and orthotic angle).
So which dorsiflexion angle do I have to match with my boots net forward lean?
And should the dorsiflexion angle equal to my boots net forward lean, or somewhat less, so when I bend my boot, I have a few degrees of dorsiflexion left?
Thank you for helping.
