Heel pain and Haglunds deformity 14

The modified shoe of professional soccer player Philippe Coutinho photographed in 2017. Though Coutinho has never confirmed this, this shoe modification could be to relieve Haglund’s deformity. The next year, in 2018, Coutinho had updated shoes, custom Nike Mercurial Vapor 11’s where the outer liner of the shoe appears to cover a hole in the harder shoe lining. Image: Anfieldhq.com
