The Wolky Jewel - Podiatrist Recommended Comfortable Dress Sandal for Most Foot Types.
This is an incredibly comfortable dress sandal for most foot types!
What makes it so comfortable is the fact that is has a thick, rigid sole that offers exceptional protection for your foot joints as well as knee, hip and lower back. The built in arch support is excellent and the anatomical cork and latex footbed is removable so that it can accommodate a custom-molded insert if needed. It also has adjustable forefoot, midfoot and rearfoot strapping, which is crucial for increasing comfort, decreasing the risk of injury and decreasing mechanical strain of your joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments.
If you're not sure about this sandal, find out what store in your area carries it and try it on and judge for yourself. This sandal is an investment in your feet that will pay off in abundance in that it will help to stop or slow the progression of bunions, hammertoes, neuromas as well as many other foot conditions and it will significantly help alleviate knee, hip and lower back pain.
