Plantar fasciitis might sound like something remote and alien at first, but you might be surprised to discover that it is one of the most common causes of heel pain. This affliction is common to people who constantly wear poorly designed shoes with inadequate support. It can also creep up simply because of wear and tear of the feet.
Painful feet can affect our capacity to enjoy even the most basic activities in our daily lives – and quite unfortunately, plantar fasciitis is but one among many foot conditions that can adversely affect us.
Bunions, another common ailment that tends to afflict women, are protruding bumps that develop around the big toe joint. As the condition worsens, the big toe may end up resting under or over the second toe, which in turn impairs a person’s ability to walk properly. Medical research has shown that bunions are commonly caused by wearing ill-fitting footwear, such as constrictive dress shoes with insufficient toe-box room for example.
Other foot conditions – such as flat feet or diabetic foot – arise due to genetics or poor lifestyle habits, and can similarly hinder you in your daily activities if not properly addressed.
Thankfully, many foot conditions can be easily prevented or treated by wearing properly designed footwear. Here at The ShoeCo., we have a wide selection of orthotic-friendly shoes for various foot conditions. The orthotic-friendly designs come with excellent insoles. Alternatively, if you have your own customised insoles, the removable insoles of the orthotic-friendly designs can be replaced by your own, for a customised fit.
Our range of therapeutic footwear is equipped with the latest technologies from specialist shoemakers, and includes shoes for bunions, plantar fasciitis, flat feet and other common foot disorders.
Drop by any of our outlets, and let our in-store experts help you find a pair of orthotic-friendly shoes that will make standing and walking so much more comfortable for you.
