|Enclosed heeled fashion shoes are a very popular style of shoe for both work and fashion. This style of shoe offers very limited support and stability. This shoe type should not be used when any significant walking is being done. Suitable activities for this footwear are those with minimal walking.
Enclosed fashion shoes similar to the ones pictured do not have a mechanism to fasten the shoe to the foot (like laces or a buckle), and so the foot needs to be forced into the shoe tightly to keep the shoe on. This causes deformation of the bony structure of the foot and also areas of high pressure over the bony prominences of the toes.
Recommended heel height for this type of shoe should not exceed 2.5cm, anything above this will further destabilize the foot. This will over load the controlling muscles of the foot leading to tired aching feed and foot pain.
Docpods orthotics help to add support to open backed enclosed fashion shoes. When the foot is supported to function in a more efficient position there is less wear and tear on the foot. This leads to less foot pain and more comfortable shoes.
Docpods orthotics that are perfect for enclosed shoes are listed below.
