Choosing the Correct Footwear for Bunions

How Can Proper Footwear Help My Bunions? Many people still believe that bunions are only for senior citizens; however, nothing could be further from the truth. While women are more susceptible to bunions than men are, they can happen to anyone. Typically, ill-fitting shoes, particularly high-heeled, pointed toe shoes, cause them. Such footwear may be fashionable, but they are anathema to your feet. In shoes that are too constrictive, the foot is forced into the unnatural position of bending inward,…

How Poorly Designed Shoes Can Damage Your Feet

Why We Sell Only Healthy Shoes Like Birkenstock and Finn Comfort Many of the commercially available shoes on the market today for both men and women are not only uncomfortable but are actually designed with flaws that affect the health of the foot. The reason behind this is that most shoes are designed simply for appearance or the illusion of comfort with little or no thought given to the long-term health of the feet of the wearer. It is important…

Jabbed by a Heel Spur ?>

Jabbed by a Heel Spur

  Heel Spur – two words that create an immediate uneasy feeling of pain. In most cases you can avoid developing heel spurs (got that tingley feeling again?) by treating the cause. While it is unclear exactly why and how heel spurs develop, it is commonly agreed upon that they occur after a plantar fascia sprain. When the plantar fascia is pulled away from the Calcaneum bone (see Three Arches of the Foot) the result is Plantar Fasciitis (see Plantar…

  Do your feet seem to hurt more in the cold weather months? It could be that with the transition from summer sandals to winter shoes and boots that you are squeezing your feet into constrictive, and painful, footwear.

All summer long your feet were happy spending a lot of time in sandals, especially if they were supportive sandals like Birkenstock or…

Are You Pregnant and Do Your Feet Hurt 2?

As you might guess, my perspective on footwear is biased. Happy Feet Plus sells footwear that emphasizes health and comfort. I look for information that reinforces our opinions on “proper footwear” when I write these blogs. In all of the research I did, as in-exhaustive as it might be, I never saw that anyone recommend that pregnant women should wear pointy-toed high heeled shoes or flip-flops. Instead, the consistent theme is flat or low-heeled shoes with a wide toe box…

Are You Pregant and Do Your Feet Hurt?

  OK, so I’m a guy and can’t fully appreciate the effects that pregnancy bestows on a woman’s body. Although if I knew then, when she was pregnant oh so many years ago, what I know now my wife would have been at least a bit more comfortable. You may hate for saying this, but do your toes look like sausages stuffed into your shoes? It’s not your fault, you’ve just got the wrong shoes. Normally a woman will wear…

Sneaker Season

  Most of the country is preparing for Fall and your sandals (your Birkenstock sandals?) are going into the closet. So what can you wear instead and still have the support, quality and comfort you’ve come to love from those Birks? I’ve got a couple of suggestions. From the Birkenstock family of products, there are three styles from Footprints that fit the bill – the Darlington, the Davenport and the Santarem. These are fashionable sneakers but with a level of…
