Ready for Flip Flop Season?

Flip FlopsAs temperatures begin to spike, it is inevitable to see many people already using flip flops and other types of sandals. Depending on what you want to accomplish, sandals can be good or bad for your feet. If you want to allow your feet to breathe after a long day or you have a fungal infection and your feet sweat excessively, then sandals are good for you. But if you want to walk, run or otherwise exercise, then sandals are not a good idea. While sandals may look and feel great, they are not the best walking shoes. It is also very important to realize that sandals are not all made the same. As shown in the picture above, the common flip flop (on the left) has minimal arch support and flat thin soles which can traumatize your feet.  Our featured sandal (on the right) has a built-in orthotic technology that offers arch support, cushioning, shock absorption, among other great features.

Wearing the right shoe for the right activity is the key to avoid foot injuries in this time of the year.

PS: Our featured sandal is available for sale in our office. Don’t wait, contact our office at 973-755-7775 and get your pair today!
