Tsubo Magda - Comfortable Heels for Certain Foot Types.

Tsubo Magda 


Although the Tsubo Magda is not for every type of foot, this is a comfortable shoe for women who know that they can wear a shoe with a three inch heel height. The shoe gives you three and a half inches of height but the forefoot is one half inch thick.

First, it's gorgeous!

Second, it has a wedge type sole with a thick rigid sole that allows for more protection and comfort - particularly in the forefoot area. 

 The inside of the shoe has added cushioning in the form of "latex foam padding and a forefoot compression platform" that allows for more comfort and protection of the forefoot.
Tsubo has ergonomic design that "complements the nature form of the foot." 
I personally love the Tsubo shoes and can wear the lower-heeled Tsubo's all day. 
This, however, is a higher heel than might be comfortable for many women. 

The rule of thumb is - if you know that you can wear a three inch heel comfortably -  this shoe should be an excellent shoe for you. If you know that you can't tolerate heels this high, that means that your foot's biomechanical structure is not suited for heels and I would not recommend these for you. It may sound simplistic but, when it comes to heels, women typically know how high they can go. The trick is to not learn that lesson the hard way! 

This shoe is NOT Recommended for Patients with: 
*Hallux Limitus (Limited Range of Motion of the 1st Toe Joint)
*Osteoarthrutis of any of the Toe Joints 
*Rheumatoid Arthritis
*Degenerative Joint Disease
*Moderate to Severe Bunions or Hammertoes 
*Morton's Neuroma
*Ankle Instability
*Severe Hypermobility or Ligament Laxity
*Peripheral Neuropathy (Nerve Damage)
*Peripheral Arterial Disease (Poor Circulation)
*History of Foot Ulcerations 
*Charcot Foot

Overall, if you know that you can comfortably wear a three inch heel, this is a great choice! 

Price: $104 - 150
Rating: 7 out of 10 
on a scale of zero to ten with ten being the best.

Have a great day!

The picture of the red high heal looks like something my wife would love. She has plantar fasciitis from too many years of wearing flip-flops. Every shoe she buys needs to be good for her feet or her foot pain comes back. We'll be moving in a few months so I'm sure she'll be looking for a good podiatrist. It's amazing how much a good pair of shoes can help with foot pain. http://www.walkwithoutpain.com.au/plantar-fasciitis/
