Your Feet Need Support Too

Don’t Neglect Your Feet, They Need Support Too.

Happy Feet Plus - Support Your Feet

Although it seems pretty obvious that the human body was not designed to walk or stand on hard surfaces all day long, many of us wear footwear that does nothing to soften the impact to our feet, legs, and back. Even more obviously bad for us, but done in the name of high fashion, are high heeled and pointy toed shoes.

The results of this neglect, or ignorance, are ailments like plantar fasciitis, metatarsalgia, hammer toes, bunions, knee pains, back aches, and more. Fortunately there are non-invasive remedies that can lessen or even reverse these ailments.

Feet need to be supported. Feet are designed to support the body while walking on soft ground. As the heel hits the ground it compresses and indents the soil. The arch area is filled by the ground and is supported as foot rolls towards the toes. By supporting the arch properly the plantar fascia is not stressed and the knees and back are kept in natural alignment.

Since we usually walk on hard surfaces, like sidewalks and tile, we need to compensate for the lack of softness and compression that soil provides. Supportive and flexible footbeds and insoles are the best available solution.

Toes need wiggle room. Footwear with a wide toe box may not make a splash on a Paris fashion runway, but trading in your pointy toed shoes sure will make your bunions feel better (or better yet, never develop). Avoiding high heeled shoes can keep you from developing hammer toes or metatarsalgia.

To feel your best you need Happy Feet. If you noticed a theme here, you’re right. Supportive insoles, wide toe box, and neutral heel cup – all of these are found in footwear that is good for you and your feet (and knees, and back). That’s who we are and what we believe. For 25 years Happy Feet Plus has been providing customers with footwear that makes you feel good. And when you feel good, you look good. Who needs those high heeled, pointy toed shoes anyway?
