Video games I can understand. Model airplanes make sense. But, sneakers, the ones that cost upwards of $100 a pair -- what does that say about my son? Will this interest lead to anything that will actually benefit his future? Am I the only parent asking myself these questions?
No matter what type of foot problem you may have, when you place arch supports in your sandals, high heels or running shoes your foot will automatically become more supported, comfortable and improve the wear pattern of your shoes.
It is holiday time again along with the long lines waiting to buy those special gifts. How will your feet and legs survive the pounding of pavements and standing for hours on hard concrete floors at the malls and running from department store to department store?
There are many different arch support products available to choose from. Some are even designed to stick in the arch area of sandals, wedges, flip flops, flats and pumps and will provide the extra support needed to cradle the arch of the foot.
"They're bad for the environment!" "They can't be recycled!" "They will cause your arches to collapse!" I began to see cruel Facebook posts about them. One particularly heartbreaking one went something like this: "Wow, that's a nice looking pair of Crocs. Said No One Ever."
Wearing shoes that are comfortable and fashionable is not a lofty goal. Try going up a size and adding supports. Resist falling prey to a great sale but the wrong size. Take care of your feet or do the rest of us a favor and cover up if you don't have the time.
These Crocs aren't the swollen, garishly colored and punctured versions my former science teachers wore. These are super cute, black peep-toe flats that look almost nothing like their monstrous cousins and make me feel like I'm walking on clouds.
