Toronto Foot Clinic Discusses Orthotic Options for Summer Footwear

Summer is finally here and everyone is putting away their Boots and bringing out their Sandals, Flats and Running Shoes for the warm weather! People walk around significantly more during summer, enjoying the warm weather which can cause Foot irritation and Pain if you are not wearing supportive Shoes. Open toed Shoes are great for Summer weather as they keep your Foot comfortable and cool in the hot temperatures, however Sandals often lack the adequate support needed to ensure your Foot is comfortable all summer long. Although Flats and Sandals are trendy, they do not support the Arches in your Feet properly and can create long term Foot discomfort if not proactively treated.


Women’s Shoes

Women’s summer Shoes in particular often provide poor support. Flat Shoes, Sandals, and high Heels don’t support natural Arches that we have in our Feet. Although each Foot type is unique, Women’s Heels and Flats can be hard on the health of their Feet as they provide little to no support. If you are wearing Heels on a daily basis for your job, invest in Custom Made Orthotics that can be put into almost any shoe type.


Orthotic Options for Sandals

The easiest way to get the ideal support for your Sandals is to invest in Custom Made Orthotics for your Sandals that you can wear year after year. The lining of your Sandal would be removed and a podiatrist would take a Custom Mold of both of your Feet to fabricate the orthotic to each individual Foot. This is the best solution to invest in for comfortable summer Shoes while sustaining the fashionable appearance of your favourite Sandals.
