Are your feet already aching from running the numerous errands that pop up at this time of year? Part of the problem may stem from shoes that lack enough support and comfort to see you through hours of standing and walking.
Since no one knows more than a podiatrist when it comes to keeping feet healthy and happy, we consulted Dr. Polina Zaydenberg, who's Board-certified by the American Board of Multiple Specialties in Podiatry, Prevention and Treatment of Diabetic Foot Wounds and in Diabetic Footwear. Dr. Zaydenberg shared her favorite shoes included in Amazon's pre-Black Friday sales.
These mesh sneakers have more than 1,900 five-star reviews and captured the attention of Dr. Zaydenberg thanks to their flexible fit. Since they are available in eight colors there's bound to be one that makes you happy.
“The toe box is accommodative," she says of the sneakers. "The material is stretchy and breathable, which isn’t likely to cause any skin disturbances.”
This pair from New Balance is supportive and cushiony, and they're well suited for people who are prone to pain in the balls of the feet.
According to Dr. Zaydenberg, it's all about the toe box. “The sole of the toe box is propulsive — the tip is off the ground — which helps you offload the pressure from the ball of your foot," she explains.
Flats are on Dr. Zaydenberg's wishlist since they work for all occasions. She has her eye on this flexible pair from Naturalizer. Available in 19 colors, half sizes and wide widths, it's easy to find a pair that works for your feet and your wardrobe.
“They’re accommodating and supportive, plus the heel has extra cushioning, which makes them a good option for those with Achilles Tendonitis (an injury or overuse of the Achilles tendon)," the podiatrist shared. "However, I would steer clear of these if you’re predisposed to dermatitis and fungal skin infections because of the synthetic fabric.”
Dr. Zaydenberg raves about this style's natural materials and six pretty, neutral shades.
“I love that these are leather — natural materials are always better for your feet!" she explains. "The platform is beneficial for those with metatarsalgia and neuromas (painful conditions that affect the balls of the feet), as well as those with insertional Achilles Tendonitis.”
If you live in a climate where a pair of sneakers just won't cut it during the winter months, these booties are a perfect option. They have a grippy sole, cozy interior, and are lightweight and durable.
“The toe box is comfy, stretchy, and it’s great for people with metatarsalgia and inter-digital neuromas," Dr. Zaydenberg explains. "It’s helpful for people who are predisposed to sprains in their ankles.”
