5 Shoes Recommended for Foot Pain

5 Shoes Recommended for Foot Pain

Even when you're dealing with slight foot pain, it’s a good idea to think about the footwear (or in some cases, a lack thereof) you've been wearing. One of the easiest ways to keep foot pain from getting in your way is to rethink the shoes you're wearing and what you put in them. Lack of support and poor fit can lead to plantar fasciitis, a condition that occurs when the fascia within the base of your foot becomes inflamed and uncomfortable. Usually, this comes about because your feet are overpronating as you move, which means you need a shoe with superior arch support to combat the pain.

More and more people now are working from home and tend to wear slippers, flip-flops or bare feet which has contributed to an increase in foot problems being seen in podiatry offices. Walking around in socks or barefoot on hardwood floors can cause a variety of foot issues due to lack of support, cushion and shock absorption. Given that people are spending more time at home, it’s time to choose better shoe options that will provide both support and comfort.

Wearing comfortable, supportive, stable shoes during your day-to-day life now will help existing pain and prevent foot pain in the future. We'll discuss how to choose a good shoe for you, and share a list of our five favorite supportive shoes to prevent foot pain that are all available on Healthy Feet Store!
