5 Life-Changing Benefits of Orthopedic Shoes


We believe in enabling you to do the things you already enjoy doing - like spending time with the people you care about, keeping active in recreational activities and working to provide for your family. That's why you should consider buying orthopedic shoes if you're experiencing foot pain. Investing in these shoes can drastically impact your happiness, stress level and mobility. They not only alleviate pain and provide comfort, but also give you the support and energy you need to stay active in normal day to day activities. Here's 5 reasons why we think orthopedic shoes provide lifelong benefits.

1. Foot Support

If you suffer from plantar fasciitis, flat foot, hammertoe, or heel spurs, these shoes will provide the support and cushion you need for everyday mobile activities. They are uniquely designed to support and realign the natural arches in your feet and ankles. You can also find strong midsole and outsole shoes that hug your feet firmly and don't twist when you walk. For custom orthotic patients, you can find removable sock liner shoes that give you extra sole space for your feet. 

2. Alleviate Pain

The typical person walks 5,000 to 10,000 steps a day. Many people experience foot pain because they can't find proper fitting shoes to compensate for all the walking they do. Orthopedic shoes, however, come in sizes you can't find in typical mainstream shoe stores. By wearing these custom-fit shoes, it alleviates pain that you would otherwise feel in regular shoes.

If you're a diabetic, you've probably experienced the loss of sensation due to swelling in your feet and ankles. This can harm you over time if you suffer from foot injuries and aren't aware of it. You'll also be limited in recreational activities. These shoes can literally save your life in this situation. They're designed to provide more blood circulation to your feet so you can reduce swelling and continue enjoying your regular day to day activities.

3. Save You From Surgery

Preventative care is key when it comes to your feet. Wearing un-supportive shoes will eventually catch up with you in old age. So don't wait until your only option is foot surgery. You'll spend more money and time recovering from surgery than you will if you buy these shoes.

4. Provide Comfort

Orthopedic shoes are created to provide optimal comfort for your feet. While some people make the argument that they aren't attractive, today you can find a wide range of fashionable styles at local diabetic shoe stores - so you don't have to sacrifice fashion for comfort. 

5. Keeps You Active with Your Friends and Family

Nothing limits you more from spending time with your friends and family then foot pain. Foot pain doesn't just stop at your feet. It drains your entire body's energy from working out and spending time with loved ones. Investing in orthopedic shoes will improve your overall mood, stress level, and energy so you can do the activities you love with the people you care about.
