During the warmer weather barefoot walking and wearing of thongs/sandals/flip-flops can
cause your feet to feel sore and tired. Overtime this can develop into a chronic painful
condition. Helpful Hints!
Instead of barefoot at home try wearing thick, cushioned shoes to reduce pressure on your heels on those tough tiles.
When looking for a great pair of sandals make sure they have:
-A back strap
-Small amount of torque (small twist in the middle of the shoe NOT alot of twist)
-Slight elevation in the heel
-Appropriate width and length
