Arch Supports Sandals Will Make A Difference In Comfort

Sandals are comfortable, fun to wear, easy to slip on and off your feet and are made from materials such as leather, plastic and rubber but are they made with adequate support. The answer to that question is NO! Most sandals are not purchased by individuals who are looking for arch supportive type shoe ware, they are looking for casual, beach and fashion foot ware. Having the ability to place a supportive comfortable uniquely designed arch support in a sandal is imperative to maintaining good foot health. Most of the sandals designed today from designers such as Valentino Garavani, Marni, Proenza Schouler, Michael Kors, Taryn Rose, Kenneth Cole, Steve Madden or the brand havaianas can eventually cause the foot to fatigue and soft tissue problems because they do not provide enough support . Wearing sandals without proper arch support predisposes the foot to some common soft tissue foot problems. Sandal wearers can also develop such problems as fissured skin or cracked heels, ball of the foot pain known as metatarsalgia, muscle cramps and spasms in the arch and plantar fasciitis. Also, bunions, heel spurs and pain in the joints of the feet can be aggravated when wearing sandals without the proper arch support.

Walking Surfaces

Hard walking surfaces, such as pavement, tiled floors and concrete / carpeted flooring is very hard on the body and can fatigue or tire you out. The part of the body that takes the brunt of the stress is the lower half, low back, hips, legs and lastly the feet. Sandals are not always made with the best shock absorbing materials. Therefore they are not properly equipped to absorb the impact load from the ground when walking. Having an arch support properly placed in the arch of a sandal would support the foot from the stress created by pounding the pavement when wearing sandals. It would also help stabilize the lower half of your body, the lower back, hips, legs and feet. It is very difficult to control the different walking surfaces we encounter every day; however it is much easier to control supporting the arch of your feet when wearing sandals. Instant Arches® for sandals is the only arch support available today that will fit in any sandal, wedge, backless dress heel or flip- flop and support the arch of your foot, therefore prevent foot problems from occurring.
