Step Up Your Sandal Comfort Game with Foot Levelers Custom Orthotic Sandalthotics
Tired of uncomfortable sandals that offer no support for your feet?
Flip-flops, sandals, slip-ons, thongs — whatever you call them, we’re all ready to ditch the wool socks and boots for them now that summer’s arrived. And why not? They’re comfortable, cool, stylish, and quick and easy to take on and off. But before you set your toes free, it’s important to consider the impact that your footwear can have on the health of your feet (and everything else!).
Your feet are the foundation of your body, however, the care and maintenance of the structures in our feet is usually at the bottom of our list of priorities. We tend to cram our feet into whatever footwear fits with our current outfit, with no regard to how it might be impacting our body.
That neglect of our feet has led to an epidemic of foot problems – including plantar fasciitis, bunions, hammer toes, collapsed arches and foot pain, along with secondary effects like knee injuries, pelvic instability and back pain.
We tend to blame genetics, not our lifestyles. But what if the answer was simply changing our footwear?
Are flip flops really that bad for your feet?
While flip-flops are fine for short-term, casual use — for example, to pop outside to grab the mail or for just wading at the beach – the cheap, generic flip-flops you find in most stores aren’t exactly the choice of footwear your Brookfield chiropractor would recommend. Thin, flat soles made of cheap foam tend to offer only the bare minimum in support and shock absorption. Without cushioning and arch support to soften the strike, the soft tissue around your heels absorb the force of the impact, leading to extra stress on the joints in the ankles, knees, hips, and lower back.
The lack of foot stability caused by generic flip-flops also tends to cause wearers to shorten their gait and over-pronate their feet, and that can throw your entire body out of alignment.
Then there’s the strap holding it to your foot: Even if you’re not aware that it’s happening, a loose-fitting flip-flop causes your foot to over-grip, putting abnormal pressure on the metatarsal and phalangeal joints and potentially spurring foot cramps, bunions, metatarsalgia and plantar fasciitis.
Over-grip also makes the muscles in the front of your leg work harder than they would if you went barefoot, or wore more supportive footwear. Overusing these muscles can cause tiny tears to develop and become painfully inflamed – a condition called medial tibial stress syndrome, also known as shin splints.
A better choice: Foot Levelers Sandalthotics
The good news is that with Foot Levelers custom Sandalthotics you can enjoy the best of both worlds – the comfort of sandals and the unmatched support of Foot Levelers custom orthotics.
Instead of relying on flat, one-size-fits-all footbeds, Sandalthotics custom orthotic footbeds are made using advanced 3D scanning technology to fit your feet perfectly, providing support and comfort where you need it most. The result is reduced pain and fatigue while standing and walking.
Each pair of Foot Levelers’ custom orthotic flip-flops are equipped with their iconic 3-arch support system that is customized according to your unique needs, which is the only way to properly address total biomechanical stability from the ground up.
