Different Foot Types: Help find your perfect, comfortable shoe

12 Apr

Summer is coming soon and finding the right sandals can be challenging. It’s a fact that you and someone else may not have the same foot type. Determining which sandal will be comfortable for you is difficult when you don’t know your foot type. Figure out your foot type here. Different styles help accommodate this problem. I’m here to help you figure out which shoe is best for you.

Flat feet

For flat feet, choose a nonflexible sandal. A flexible sandal causes inward motions; this is painful to the feet. Find a sandal with a wedge. The wedge will be able to support your foot and decrease the inward motions. Not to mention the wedge will add some height. Finding a wedged sandal isn’t hard at all: stores like DSW, Famous Footwear, and Payless sell wedges. Look for a shoe that fits your personality.

High arch

High arched feet benefit from a cushioned shoe. Make sure the shoe is flexible and provides less support. You definitely need cushion where your arch is. You might also benefit from investing in a high arched sole. The sole will allow you to accommodate all types of shoes and add that extra cushion that you need.

Neutral feet

This is the ideal foot type; it adjusts to your stability. You can buy almost any sandal with this foot form. The best shoe allows both cushioning and pronation control. Check out websites like Shoe Dazzle or Just Fabulous to find your perfect style for summer 2012. And the best part, they give discounts for first time users.

No matter what your foot type is, stay away from flip-flops. Flip-flops, especially the rubber ones, don’t offer any support or cushioning. Determining your foot type enables you to find shoes that are more comfortable for you but still keeping it stylish.
