Foot health is a crucial aspect of our overall well-being, yet it's often overlooked. Ill-fitting shoes can lead to a myriad of foot problems, causing discomfort and even long-term damage. But fear not, OrthoFit is here to guide you on a journey to foot comfort and health.
The Perils of Ill-Fitting Shoes
"Short term, this may cause you to temporarily lose the nail, long term, it can lead to permanent damage and a lifetime with a thickened nail." - Kiera
Ill-fitting shoes can cause repetitive trauma leading to bruising and bleeding under the toenail. Our stretchy sandals are designed with a wider fit and super stretchy material, ensuring a perfect fit every time.
Blisters: More Than Just a Nuisance
Blisters, the most common foot health condition in the UK, are often caused by shoes that don't fit correctly. Kiera, a podiatrist, has seen her fair share of blisters and warns, "If you feel a blister forming, the shoe isn’t right for you!" Learn more about foot health and how to prevent blisters here.
Heel Pain: A Common Foot Problem
Heel pain, often caused by plantar fasciitis, can be alleviated by choosing shoes with adequate support and cushioning. Shoes with a low heel height, cushioned insole, and arch support can help distribute pressure evenly across the foot. Discover the power of orthopedic shoes for plantar fasciitis here.
Gout: A Painful Form of Arthritis
Gout can cause sudden and severe pain, especially in the big toe. Shoes with ample space, cushioning, and a wide toe box can reduce pressure on the affected joint. Our ultra-wide Fly Flot range is perfect for those with extra sensitive or swollen feet.
Osteoarthritis: The 'Wear and Tear' Arthritis
Osteoarthritis can cause pain, stiffness, and limited mobility. Shoes with good shock absorption, cushioning, and a soft and flexible sole can reduce the impact on your joints. Avoid shoes with a high heel or narrow toe box as they can exacerbate symptoms. Learn more about feet problems and treatments here.
The Power of Properly Supportive Shoes
Properly supportive shoes not only alleviate foot problems but also provide long-lasting foot support. Shoes with proper shock absorption can help avoid cracks and other foot problems. Explore our collection of comfortable shoes for women that provide the benefits of wearing orthopedic footwear.
