Arch support stabilizes joints providing relief when overuse occurs. Rocker bottom shoes are also nice as they relieve some of the work the foot experiences as it moves through the gait cycle. Shoes with more room in the toe box can ease cramped toes by providing extra wiggle room. Shoe inserts also stabilize the foot by realigning your feet in the correct position to distribute weight evenly between your feet. Some people may find custom-made orthotics to be most effective as they are molded to fit the exact specifications of the wearer.
Bunions are the result of the big toe pushing outward against the first metatarsal bone causing a bony, painful hump at the ball of the foot. Bunions can be minor or develop into a severe foot deformity.
Wearing shoes with a wide toe box works great to manage pain associated with bunions. The added room helps reduce rubbing against the hump and the soft interior lining of the shoe can be therapeutic. Also, adequate arch support can help properly align the foot and may limit the bunions from becoming more serious.
How diabetes affects feet? Diabetes can cause feet to swell and lose feeling (neuropathy) due to poor blood flow circulation.
How Can Shoes Help With Feet Affected by Diabetes? Shoes designed for diabetic feet offer more volume and depth inside the shoe to accommodate for swelling. Some styles have stretch material or side goring that adjust to increased swelling (edema) so reduced rubbing occurs. Look for shoes with soft interior lining that are delicate on your feet and shoes with extra- or double-depth to allow more volume in the shoe for high insteps or swelling.
A hammertoe is a toe that is bent because of a weakened muscle.
Extra depth shoes and shoes with a wide toe-box work best for hammertoes because the toes have more room to rest inside the shoe.
Metatarsalgia is a condition in which the ball of your foot becomes painful and inflamed.
Wearing shoes with great arch support is ideal when managing pain associated with Metatarsalgia. Arch support stabilizes joints providing relief when overuse occurs. Rocker bottom shoes are also nice as they relieve some of the work the foot experiences as it moves through the gait cycle. Wearing shoes with more room in the toe box can ease cramped toes by providing a little extra wiggle room. Shoe inserts also stabilize the foot by realigning your feet in the correct position to distribute weight evenly between your feet. Some people may find custom-made orthotics to be most effective as they are molded to fit the exact specifications of the wearer. Those suffering from Morton's Neuroma may also find proper fitting shoes beneficial as well as the symptoms associated with Morton’s Neuroma are similar to Metatarsalgia and can also contribute to added metatarsal stress.
Plantar fasciitis is a painful condition caused by inflammation of the bands of tissue (plantar fascia) that connect your heel to your toes. The tension and stress on this band of tissue causes irritation and can become inflamed. Plantar Fasciitis is common in runners, those who are overweight, and those wearing shoes with inadequate foot support.
Shoes with cushioned heel pads and adequate arch support are ideal for those suffering from plantar fasciitis. The cushioned dropped heel cup in shoes with a raised arch support will help align your foot to its natural position and provide support where needed to reduce stress and tension on the plantar fascia.
