MIDDLEBURY — Mike Nienow thought the persistent pain in his left leg was simply the result of a bad pair of clogs, the footwear of choice for culinary school students at the Patricia Hannaford Career Center.

But being a bullet-proof 17-year-old with a busy school schedule and social life, he didn’t think too much of it at first.
Then the pain became persistent enough that he switched to a new pair of shoes.
