Sandal Buying Tips Can Ensure Comfort, Safety, Support and Style.
Tags: sandals, shoes, comfort
Drew Shoe of Lancaster, Ohio offers some helpful shopping tips for consumers who may suffer from various foot conditions or who just want to make the most sensible sandal choice. While sandals may provide a measure of comfort and style there are other things to consider such as arch support and shock absorption. Little-to-no support can lead to overworked tendons and an overstressed arch. Ankle sprains, tendonitis and other foot related issues can also develop.
| ||The sole of the sandal should be larger than your foot. Your foot should not hang over the sides or the back of the sandal.|
| ||There should be enough material on the top of the sandal to keep your foot on the sole and to keep the foot from slipping.|
| ||The sole of the sandal should be rigid and not flex in the middle. If you can take your sandal and fold it in half, then it is too flexible and it will not offer enough support.|
| ||Many sandals are not made for walking, but designed purely for style. Owning one pair of sandals for walking and one pair for relaxing around the house or outdoors is a practical solution.|
| ||When buying a sandal for walking, look for a sturdy sole, multiple straps with buckles or velcro, built in arch supports or an accommodation for a custom orthotic|
