  • Business Professionals Can Benefit from Shoes that Are both Stylish and Supportive

Proper Foot SupportThe Daily Journal provided an article advising business professionals searching for shoes that are both occasion appropriate and supportive. When it comes to women, should not be more than two inches tall as a rule. In addition, it is advised that women vary the heights of the high heels they wear and if possible, trade them for pumps. Shoes with wide toe boxes are suggested as a more comfortable option.

Meanwhile, the Journal suggests that men should opt for conservative oxford-style footwear, which can be found in many styles which include boots and loafers. For both fashion and health purposes, it’s best to keep a variety of shoes in every wardrobe.

The more you are on your feet, the more important the need for proper foot support becomes. For questions about supportive shoes, see a podiatrist like Dr. Andrew H. Cohen of Mid-Michigan Foot and Ankle Center.  Dr. Cohen will give you the information and guidance you need to help solve your footwear dilemma.

The Importance of Proper Foot Support

Walking is an everyday function for both men and women, and in order to keep your body’s balance in order, you are going to need shoes that provide the proper kinds of support. 

Poor foot support can cause pain and discomfort in the lower back, hips, knees, neck and shoulder. It also can lead to emotional stress, and physiological changes in the body. In order to avoid these problems, you must have proper foot support.

The arch is the most important part of the foot, which is where most of the support and balance of your feet lies. The arch of your foot varies in height, and as you age, this height can change. Proper foot support will help musculoskeletal issues, which causes inactivity or disability.

When looking for shoes that give proper support to your feet, you should refrain from wearing ill-fitting shoes.  If footwear is too tight, this can affect the body’s posture, stress, bone deformities, and other foot and back pain. It’s important shoes fit well in order to avoid these complications.

Shoes to Consider:

- Good heel and arch support

- Have proper length and width for your feet
