Donald J Pliner - Podiatrist approved women's dress shoe.

Donald J Pliner

Donald J. Pliner's Lilie is a classic women's dress shoe that is stylish and comfortable. What makes this shoe so comfortable is that the sole is thick, rigid and non-flexible, which is crucial for good foot health. There's a lot of bad information in the media about what makes a good shoe and the truth is that a shoe must have a thick, rigid and non-flexible sole. A flimsy sole which allows motion through foot joints significantly speeds up the progression of arthritic joint changes, bunions, hammertoes and increases the risk of injury and stress fractures as well as knee, hip and lower back pain. 

The four criteria that a shoe must have to be comfortable are:
1. Thick, rigid and non-flexible sole
2. Wide, soft toebox
3. Rearfoot control
4. Arch support

The Donald J. Pliner Lilie is recommended for people with:
*Mild Bunions
*Mild Hammertoes
*Mild Metatarsalgia
*Mild Functional Hallux Limitus (limited range of motion through the 1st toe joint while functioning)
*Mild Hallux Limitus (limited range of motion through the 1st toe joint)
*Mild Plantar Fasciitis (heel pain)
*Mild Achilles Tendonitis
*Mild Osteoarthritis 
*Mild Rheumatoid Arthritis (check with your podiatrist) 
*History of a resolved Lisfranc's fracture (check with your podiatrist)
*Mild Over-Pronation (wear with a dress orthotic or a heat-molded insert if possible)
*Mild Hypermobility (wear with orthotic if possible) 
*Mild Morton's Neuroma
*Mild Capsulitis
*Mild Plantar Plate Issues

The Donald J. Pliner Lilie is not recommended for people with: 
*Diabetes with history of ulcerations
*History of ulcerations
*Peripheral Arterial Disease (poor circulation)
*Peripheral Neuropathy (nerve damage) 
*Drop Foot 
*Ankle Instability 
*Charcot Foot 
*Hallux Rigidus (no motion through the 1st toe joint) 
*Severe Bunions and Hammertoes

Thank you for the tips. It is not easy finding comfortable footwear. I was looking for clog sandals for women to get for my mother, whose podiatrist has recommended wooden shoes for her.

I am very surprised to not see SAS (San Antonio Shoemakers) featured on your blog. In my experience, they are one of the most highly recommended footwear lines by podiatrists and other foot-care professionals, especially considering the wide range of sizes and widths available.

Is there a specific reason you have not recommended SAS shoes? I would highly recommend checking them out; they far exceed both quality and comfort than many of the other shoes and brands featured here.
