my work requires I spend a lot of time in boots so my feet flattened out and knees turn in. it definitely has been a moving target. I had an accident where my foot collapsed, knee locked out and my weight came down resulting in a hyper extended knee. 

2 things main things I’ve used to rehab:
1. practice the air squat while flaring my knees out putting my feet and knees in a safer position. Kelly talks about this in supple leopard and many mwod videos.
2.  training barefoot VERY gradually.  this causes the tissues in the feet that have gone on vacation, due to walking/standing on flat surfaces and certain types of footwear, to start working again. and as long as you train barefoot gradually your body will respond well.
your thoughts?
