John Fluevog Women's Shoes
First, the most important thing to remember is that any shoe that you wear must have a thick, rigid and non-flexible sole.
The concept is counterintuitive but the idea is that if you have a painful joint then the last thing that you want to do is wear flexible shoes that force motion through joints that can’t handle it. When it comes to the foot, less motion equals less pain, inflammation and joint damage. A sturdy sole with no motion will also stop or slow the progression of bunions, hammertoes, stress fractures, and osteoarthritis.
These shoes are not recommended for patients with:
*Peripheral Neuropathy (nerve damage)
*Peripheral Arterial Disease (poor circulation)
*History of foot ulcerations
If you are unsure if any of these shoes will work for your foot condition, please refer to your local podiatrist.
I hope this was helpful!
