As the dreary winter months finally start to wither away, we are all excited to spring forward! Spring cleaning is in full swing and that also means getting rid of our winter shoe gear...well at least hiding it away for a while. 
 
Whether choosing sneakers, loafers, sandals or flip flops to rock your spring look, make sure you are paying close attention to the fit of the shoe. If a shoe is too tight/small, you run the risk of exacerbating deformities such as bunions or hammertoes. Too big of a shoe and you risk the formation of blisters. 
 
It is common to fall prey to fashion over comfort, but it is possible to have both! Make sure a shoe is supportive enough to stabilize the arches and is not floppy. When wearing flip flops or espadrilles, it is better to go with a thicker sole than not.
 
If you are unsure as to which shoe is better for your particular foot, make an appointment with one of our doctors for a consultation. We can discuss specific shoe gear for your feet or recommend custom orthotics to help provide the support and stability that some lower profile shoes lack. 
 
We look forward to seeing you in our offices! Until then, enjoy the warm weather and stay safe.
