Avoid a beach blunder this summer by addressing your footwear woes:
 
  • Wedges and Espadrilles
    PROBLEM: ankle twist or sprain; instability and difficulty walking                                   SOLUTION: try a wider, flatter wedge; look for a rubber sole with good traction
  • Peep-Toe Sandals
    PROBLEM: increased pressure on toes; bunions and hammer toes
    SOLUTION: wear only for short periods of time; use an APMA-accepted insert
  • Flats and Slides
    PROBLEM: arch and heel pain; inadequate cushioning and foot support
    SOLUTION: avoid prolonged wear; try cushioned inserts for shock absorption; select a sole that doesn't twist excessively
  • Platforms and High Heels
    PROBLEM: pain in the ball of the foot and ankle injuries
    SOLUTION: wear lower, more stable heels (less than two inches); use an APMA-accepted insert
  • Gladiator and Strappy Sandals                                                                     PROBLEM: irritation between toes; callus and dead skin build-up around the heels; lack of support and shock absorption
    SOLUTION: select natural materials such as a soft, supple leather; ensure proper fit with no toes or heels hanging off the edge
