Podiatrist explains: What to look for in a Slipper

Hi I'm Dr. Jacqueline Satara podiatrist and Vionic Innovation Lab member what I'd like to describe today is what to look for in a slipper. When we get home at the end of the day everyone loves to take their shoes off but this is not a good option if the slipper is too flat or too thin. These type of slippers offer no support. Going barefoot is actually not a good option either it can thin out the natural fat cushioning at the bottom of your foot. A better alternative would be a slipper like this. This slipper has a thicker sole, a deep heel cup, contoured arch and a super cushy sole, it gives a lot of shock absorption, a lot of support... This is what you should look for in a slipper.

Plantar Fasciitis Relief Slippers

What is it? Plantar Fasciitis, also meaning 'ailment of the foot tissue' is a common and painful issue that is hard to ignore. It causes a dull to severe pain that radiates throughout the heel of the foot. It is caused by inflammation mostly and can also appear after too much strain has been placed on the foot and heel. The tissue that is affected is a ligament attached to a side of the heel bone that stretches to the five toes.

When that tissue becomes inflamed or if microtears have occurred after excessive stretching of the tissue, it causes pain throughout the heel bone that can appear suddenly or commonly after physical activity. If overpronation has occurred, or rolling in of the feet, for whatever reason, Plantar Fasciitis can appear due to the strain placed on the tissue when the arch is not supporting the feet as it should when it is properly aligned.

How to alleviate or reduce Plantar Fasciitis? There are quite a few steps that can be taken to ease the pain. The first step is to buy orthopedic shoes or slippers with lots of support that can help realign the feet. Orthotic inserts worn throughout the day will help. At the Orthotic Shop, we offer footwear options with insoles designed to help treat plantar fasciitis. You must also stretch the calves and achilles tendon, exercise more often to keep the muscles warmed up and also try icing the feet to relieve the pain.

Arch supportive products that we carry will help keep the heel supported and the foot aligned which, when worn daily, should ease the pain and help treat the ailment quickly. These shoes and slippers are also great because they are becoming more stylish. That is important to keep in mind since those who suffer the pain of Plantar Fasciitis should wear orthopedic shoes or Orthoheel Technology every day, from the first step of the day especially since that is usually when the muscles are the tightest. It is easy to put on slippers with arch support as you get out of bed. You can shop for these specifically orthopedic-designed shoes throughout the Orthotic Shop website to find an appealing and comfortable shoe.

Health Note

Diabetics and people with poor circulation or lack of sensation in their feet should consult their health care professional before using arch supports.

Sizing note: If you are a half size and the slipper only comes in whole sizes, it is recommeded to go down a half size (e.g., size 8.5 go with size 8).
