Lots of women wear sandals during the summer months and men are wearing sandals more and more too. Sales of men’s sandals grew 20% between 2005 and 2007. However, there is a difference between a good sandal and a bad one in terms of your feet. Choosing the wrong sandal can lead to heel pain, Achilles tendonitis and even breaks or stress fractures in the foot.
Don’t look for fashion alone while shopping for a sandal. Men should find a sandal that has a sturdy, cushioned, supportive sole with padded straps to provide the structure needed to help prevent potential foot problems. If you
have diabetes, consult us first before wearing sandals.
Foot pain is not normal and should not be ignored. If you have been sporting this summer fashion and your feet hurt, your sandal could be the problem. Contact our office for an appointment.
