Bunions, plantar fasciitis, swollen feet, corns and calluses – there are a variety of foot issues that can leave you with pain or irritation. Unfortunately, the wrong footwear can make the problem even worse. Other than avoiding shoes that are too tight, ill-fitting, or those with high heels, you can make smarter choices in the shoes you wear, based on your particular problem. As bulk wholesale footwear distributors supplying customers around the globe, we have a few shoe tips that will hopefully help you deal with your foot issue.
Swollen feet are common, and can occur in pregnant women, those who consume a lot of salt or carbohydrates, or simply due to hot weather in summer months. Certain medical conditions can also make your ankles and feet swell. What are the proper shoes to wear for the most comfort? Those that are well ventilated so your feet can breathe, and that provide plenty of room. Avoid shoes that are snug.
Plantar fasciitis is a condition that affects the tissue in the heel of the foot, which is usually where the pain or inflammation is located. What you want in this situation is a shoe that offers shock absorption, one with good cushioning and heel support. Shoes that provide good arch support are also helpful for those with plantar fasciitis pain.
Have a bunion? Most are located along the inside edge of the foot in the area where the big toe joint joins the foot. A bunion can cause your big toe to push inward, so you’ll want to choose shoes that are flexible and a bit “boxy” in the toe area; flat shoes that are comfortable and not tight. The last thing you want to wear is high heels, as this only puts pressure on the area where the bunion is located.
Corns and calluses can actually be caused by the footwear you choose, as these “tough” or thick areas of skin occur when shoes rub the ball area on the bottom of the foot, heels, or toes. Shoes that put pressure on your feet such as heels are usually the culprit. What to do? Choose shoes that are well-fitting, and that don’t put pressure on your feet or rub on any area of the foot. It also helps to have good cushioning in the sole area.
Your feet are your means of transportation, so to speak, so you want to keep them in good shape and as pain-free as possible. Choosing the right shoes can go a long way toward helping you avoid problems!
