Choose Sandals that are Good for your Feet

Foot & Ankle Specialists

You don’t necessarily need to sacrifice style in the quest for smarter footwear this summer. Save the basic flip-flops for the beach and backyard, and invest in something cute and supportive for when you’re walking around. Here are some tips for what to look for:

  • Choose a sandal with a supportive yet lightweight outer sole that provides shock absorption, and stay away from the ‘floppy brands’.
  • Look for a cradle around the heel, to reduce your chances of ankle sprains.
  • Cork soles are better than most rubber soles, a slight wedge can be better for some with higher arches.
  • Orthotic sandals, such as those by Naot, Birkenstock, Bite and Wolky, can be a better option.
  • Go for solid straps, such as Velcro strapping or a pulley-lock fit system in technical support sandals, which can help hold your foot in place.
