|Everyday women’s shoes are generally designed with appearance as the first priority and comfort as a distant second. Generally these shoes are designed to be worn for minimal walking.
Everyday women’s shoes are not the podiatrist’s choice when selecting a shoe for high mileage walking, or for that matter a moderate amount of walking. Even such things as walking to the train and walking to lunch will generally cause enough wear and tear on the foot to eventually cause foot pain. Irritation of the joints and ligaments of the foot or corns and callus over the bony prominences are just 2 of a wide range of foot conditions that are caused by wearing this type of footwear.
Long term use of this type of footwear can also lead to more debilitating conditions such as bunions, stress fractures, plantar fasciitis, heel pain and arthritis of the midfoot.
It is important to listen to your feet when wearing this type of footwear. If your feet are hurting you will need to change to something that is more supportive or more suitable for the level of activity you are performing.
If you still can’t give up your fashion shoes for work, docpods would suggest wearing sneakers for the walk to and from work and change in to your fashion shoes at work.
Docpods orthotics help to add support to every day women’s 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.
