|Open backed shoes are often popular in summer as they are cool and also easy to slip on and off. This shoe type has limited support when compared to enclosed shoes.
Open backed shoes often have an adjustable sling strap around the heel, or elastic in the heel strap to hold the shoe on the foot. This is not as supportive as a fully enclosed heel cup, but a heel strap is preferable to an open heeled shoe.
The recommended heel height for this type of shoe should not exceed 2.5cm. Anything above 2.5cm will further destabilize the foot and over load the muscles that control the foot leading to tired aching feet and foot pain.
