Comfortable Women's Sandal - The Wolky "Tulip" Sandal.
THE WOLKY "TULIP" SANDAL.
This is a fabulous sandal!! My patients who have gotten them have said that this is the most comfortable sandal they've ever worn. They cost more but consider them an investment in your feet, knees, hips and lower back.
What makes this sandal special:
*It has a thick rigid sole with an insole made of cork and memory foam so it is thick and protective but also soft, conforming and very comfortable.
*The straps are adjustable so this works well for patients with mild to moderate swelling.
*It is made out of environmentally friendly materials (no chrome or vegetable extracts) which is great for patients with skin/environmental allergies.
*It's approved by the American Podiatric Medical Association.
This sandal is great for patients with:
Hallus Limitus (limited range of motion at the first toe joint).
Mild, Moderate and Severe Hammertoes.
Mild to moderate Osteoarthritis.
This sandal is not recommended for:
Neuropathic Patients (Nerve Damage).
Severe Degenerative Joint Disease (These patients will need an enclosed shoe for more protection and biomechanical control.
This sandal can be found at Arizona Walk Shop in Mesa, Arizona. I know this is a bit of a drive for my patients but their wide selection and excellent customer service will make it well worth the trip.
