Clarks Wedge Heels - Podiatrist Recommended for some foot types.

Clarks Maritsa Lara
Podiatrist Recommended

The Clark's Maritsa Lara is a great choice for fashion and comfort for some foot types. What makes this shoe comfortable is that it meets 3 of the 4 criteria required for a shoe to be good enough for your feet. 

Most importantly, this shoe has a thick, rigid and non-flexible sole which is absolutely crucial for foot comfort. Shoes with flexible soles are horrible for your feet because a shoe that allows motion through joints causes pain, inflammation, swelling and can lead to osteoarthritic joint changes. Secondly, this shoe has a wide toe box that helps prevent the risk of hammertoes, bunions, corns, neuromas, ingrown toenails, and fungal toenails. The rearfoot strap helps to control motion which means that there will be less biomechanical strain on joints and tendons, which will help to speed the healing of pathologies such as Achilles tendonitis and plantar fasciitis. Wearing a shoe with rearfoot strapping also helps to decrease strain on the knees, hips and lower back. 

This shoe is recommended for patients with:
*Plantar Fasciitis (heel pain)
*Mild Achilles Tendonitis 
*Mild Hallux Limitus (limited range of motion through the 1st toe joint) 
*Mild Functional Hallux Limitus
*Mild Hypermobility
*Mild Over-Pronation
*Mild Morton's Neuroma
*Mild Metatarsalgia
*Mild Bunions
*Mild to Moderate Hammertoes
*Mild Capsulitis
*Mild Tailor's Bunions
*Mild Osteoarthritis (maybe) 
*History of previous Lisfranc's Injury (maybe) 

This shoe is not recommended for patients with: 
*Hallux Rigidus (no motion through 1st toe joint)
*Balance Issues
*Peripheral Neuropathy (nerve damage)
*Peripheral Arterial Disease (poor circulation)
*History of Ulcerations
*Lymphedema (excessive swelling) 
*Drop Foot
*Ankle Instability 
*Severe Hypermobility
*Severe Over-Pronation
*Severe Osteoarthritis 
*Rheumatoid Arthritis 
*Charcot-Marie Tooth
*Charcot Foot
