Many folks who are past middle age, who stand for extended periods or who are overweight suffer the agony of the feet. The source of this discomfort often is plantar fasciitis, an inflammation of the ligament that connects the heel and toes.
The condition is just as likely to affect women as men. Fortunately, shoes designed to help combat the effects of plantar fasciitis can provide easy relief. Dash any thoughts of traditional orthopedic shoes…our lady’s styles are fashionable enough to make a unique gift for Mother’s Day or any occasion.
These fun and flirty flip flops realign the feet to a neutral position. Recipient of the prestigious American Podiatric Medical Association’s Seal of Acceptance, the sandals are built with a podiatrist-designed, shock-absorbing EVA midsole that provides arch support while aligning the feet naturally. The orthotic footbeds provide optimal comfort and support when the sandals are worn for at least a few hours per day over the course of two weeks. Available in raspberry or black.
For a dressier look, these lightweight faux jeweled sandals offer the same podiatrist-designed features and sport a flexible, man-made upper decorated with an array of differently sized faux gems. Choose bronze or black.
The Lady’s Plantar Fasciitis Wedge features a modern 2”-high wedge heel. Covered in soft microfiber, the footbed’s deep heel cups help align the feet properly. With each step, the built-in metatarsal raise provides arch support for more even weight distribution and eases pressure on the ball of the foot with a contoured forefoot. The durable, flexible soft synthetic uppers secure the foot to ensure comfort while the durable rubber outsoles’ non-slip pattern ensures reliable footing. In tan or black.
Looking for a unique gift for her that will combine the easy comfort of a pair of slippers with relief from the pain of plantar fasciitis? The lady’s closed-back, indoor/outdoor slippers feature cotton corduroy uppers trimmed and lined with soft polyester terry. Flexible, lightweight rubber outsoles are molded with a slip-resistant pattern and provide enough protection and support that she can even wear these slippers out for a trip to the store. Available in camel or black.
