In this article, we report a 67-year-old male patient who had a different wear pattern on the bottom of his tennis shoe after surgical repair of acute Achilles tendon rupture with 22-year follow-up. The wear pattern was well-matched with dynamic pedobarography. In left shoe with less total contact area and higher pressure values, there was more wear compared to right shoe.
