Comfortable Women's Dress Shoe - The Naot Admire
It has a thick, rigid sole that helps to protect the foot, a relatively wide toe-box, a strap to give more control to the mid-foot and decent rear-foot control.
What's not so good:
The slight taper on the toe-box and lack of depth to the toe-box may crowd the toes and be uncomfortable for anyone with forefoot deformities like hammertoes and bunions.
This shoe will not work for patients with:
*Limited range of motion of the 1st toe joint (i.e. Hallux Limitus/Rigidus or moderate to severe osteoarthritis).
*Moderate to severe hammertoes.
*Moderate to severe bunions or Tailor's bunions.
*Diabetic or Neuropathic Patients (Patients with Diabetes with nerve damage causing their feet to be numb).
This shoe will work for patients with:
*Mild Achilles Tendonitis.
*Mild Plantar Fasciitis (Heel Pain).
Dress Shoe Rating:
6 out of 10 (with 10 being the best)
**Remember: when it comes to dress shoes - the acid test is how it feels on your foot! If it's not comfortable, don't get it. I recently tried on a dress shoe that should have been perfect but I didn't like it. Shoes are all about the subtleties.
Have a wonderful day,
