Casual Dress Shoes at Famous Footwear...

The LifeStride Millie & EuroStep Ramona.

These aren't the best dress shoes ever but they are an excellent example of a decent casual dress shoe that will work for most patients with mild foot problems who need a dress shoe.

What's Good:
*The semi-rigid sole.
*Low heel height.
*The straps which provide forefoot, midfoot and some rearfoot control.

What's Lacking:
*Arch Support.

Recommended for Patients with:
*Mild Bunions and hammertoes
*Mild heel pain
*Mild Tendonitis
*Mild Hallus Limitus (decreased range of motion at the 1st Toe Joint)

NOT Recommended for Patients with:
*Chronic Pain (not supportive enough)
* Moderate to Severe bunions & Hammertoes
*Hallus Rigidus (No motion at the 1st Toe Joint due to osteoarthritis or genetics)
*Moderate to Severe pain in the foot of any kind (Get an evaluation and treatment from a Podiatrist!)

Hope all is well!
Dr. McCarthy
