Comfortable Women's Dress Shoe at Shoe Mill in Tempe...


Found at The Shoe Mill in Tempe, Arizona.

I own this shoe and it's one of my favorite and most comfortable dress shoes! I can wear this shoe all day long at work...

This shoe has a thick, rigid sole for protection of the foot, a wide and semi-soft toebox to prevent hammertoes, bunions and ingrown toenails, and decent midfoot and rearfoot strapping for more biomechanical control. Although it will not be able to accommodate a custom-molded dress orthotic - if you need more arch control you can use an over-the-counter "stick on" arch support sold in many stores. I wore mine without arch control and they were uber-comfortable!

This is an acceptable dress shoe for patients with:
*Mild bunions
*Mild Hammertoes
*Mild Achilles Tendonitis
*Mild Plantar Fasciitis/Heel Pain

This shoe is NOT recommended for patients with:
*Hallux Limitus/Rigidus (limited range of motion of the first toe joint)
*Osteoarthritis or Degenerative Joint Disease of the first toe joint
*Moderate to Severe Bunion or Hammertoes
*Moderate to Severe Plantar Fasciitis/Heel Pain
*Moderate to Severe Osteoarthritis in the foot or ankle
*Diabetic Patients
*Neuropathic Patients (Nerve Damage)
*Charcot Patients
*Moderate to Severe Tendonitis
*Moderate to Severe Hypermobility

Cost: $120

Have a Great Day!
