Warning: “Comfortable ” Spring Shoes Can Be Bad for Your Feet

Those fancy flip-flops might be hurting your feet.By Deborah Wilburn

Spring is here, and so are chic ballet flats, flip-flops, and sky-high platform sandals. They’re comfortable shoes, and trendy, too, but are they good for your feet?

Not so much, says Dawn Olsen Figlo, MD, a certified foot surgeon in New York City. Even though many women think flats are a foot-friendly alternative, “ballet slippers are the worst shoe anyone can wear,” she says. “There’s no support whatsoever and the ankle can turn in too much or turn out.”

 

From me:

After I read te article I was reminded of great piece of shoe advice wear shoes that suit the job. I love wear high heels and I have a collection of high heeled clogs and on average as a blogger/marketer no one ever sees me on a professional level in flat shows. Here is my secret to comfortable feet and legs.

  1. Find the shoe that fits that days activity
  2. Keep on pair on easy on easy off shoes in the car
  3. Make sure you can just about wiggle your toes in your shoes
  4. Make sure you have arch support
Style and comfort can be found together if shoes are planned out properly. Be honest about the days activities. Who are you going to see in the meeting today?  Who is going to be at the party? Make sure you change your shoe and sock often through out the day. Your toes need air. That dark damp place where your feet stay in any shoes can cause fungus. Apply a fungicide when you do your pedicure. Go once a month for a professional pedicure. When I say pedicure do mean tips’ on the toes I mean they soak and massage your feet. Think about the 10,000 steps you will take in the day.
