In the world of clothes and fashion, shoes have a very important impact. There are shoes of all shapes, sizes, colors, and styles. High heels, flats, flip flops, clogs, sandals, boat shoes, boots, sneakers and so on and so forth. The number of styles and types of shoes can be overwhelming. Women in particular have the most options to choose from. Many of the shoes they buy are purely for fashion purposes. A lot of women forget that shoes are essential to their foot health. It is okay to wear a cute pair of shoes every now and then, but constant use of the wrong shoes can severely injure a lady’s foot.

High heels can cause a lot of problems for women and their feet. Some workplaces require women to wear high heels as part of their uniform. If a woman has to wear high heels or insists upon wearing them, then she should consider swapping them out for a different type of shoe during break at work. This will allow for the feet to recuperate.

Women can also try “walking” heels. These heels are specifically designed to blend fashion and comfort together. They offer wider toe boxes and reinforced heels for stability. These heels are less likely to cause ankle sprains, bunions, blisters and fractures. Although they sound like the perfect heel, they can still contribute to foot problems in the long term.

Lace-up sneakers are by far, the best option for a women’s daily shoe choice. Not only do they offer ample amounts of support, stability and shock absorption, but there is a far lower risk of foot problems. Sneakers also have good arch support and a wider toe box for optimal fit.
