Believe it or not, a lot of summer footwear can be harmful to your legs, joints, and overall skeletal structure. As we all know, many shoes don't offer our feet the support they need, but it's sometimes hard to know which ones are best. Luckily, we have the insider knowledge to help you decide which footwear to avoid and which to pack this summer.
Espadrilles may be very current, stylish, and let your feet breathe; however, espadrilles have a super flat sole. Meaning there is no shock absorption when you walk, and there's hardly any support for your feet, especially the arch. These types of shoes also aren't waterproof, making them a massive no-no for your suitcase this summer.
Platforms shoes, yes, they make you look heaps taller, but is it worth your feet suffering? This style of shoe can lead to foot deformation as the action of walking with platforms is unnatural. You also have a high chance of twisting your ankle in these, so definitely steer clear of these types of shoes if you want to take care of your feet.
Heels with a point maybe fashionable on your summer night out; we get it. But pointy heels aren't the way forward! They offer lousy blood circulation disorders in your toes, foot deformation, sometimes bunions, and are likely to cause you an accident. You could also get unnatural blood flow levels in your legs and squashed nerves due to the shoe's narrow shape, so pointy heels don't even bear thinking about if you want to take care of your feet.
So, we have to steer clear of all of these types of shoes, but what CAN we wear?
To walk long distances and for sufficient support, your footwear needs to have sloped soles, arch support, and enough protection for your feet. If only there were a solution!
