Women’s Shoes Shouldn’t Hurt with the Help of Insoles

Help of Insoles

 

 

Marilyn Monroe once said, “Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world.” Women, by nature, are fashionable, and we’re a sucker for those kitten heels and stilettos, even when the latter make our feet sore and tired. We all do it for the sake of beauty. It’s true that the right pair of shoes, especially high-heeled ones, gives us women the poise and grace when we strut. However, we can’t use them over a long period of time as they could strain particular muscle groups, according to podiatrists.

It is also recommended that we slip on some protective padding in our footwear. There are shoe insoles for women that will fit different shoe types, even your stilettos. I am using Hydrofeet® insoles for women and I can use them on almost every pair of shoe that I have. (I have about a hundred.) No need to purchase another pair for different footwear.

Writer and celebrity podiatrist Dr. Suzanne Levine pointed out that women’s risk of developing foot problems is four fold higher than men. She wrote a book, called “My Feet Are Killing Me,” in which she explained how various sole types can affect our feet, and our health in general.

Stilettos are already known to be detrimental to women’s feet, so some thought that pumps would be a better alternative. While it’s true that these provide enough support, if the shoe size does not match the size of your feet perfectly, you will still develop foot problems such as bunions and plantar fasciitis. Ballet flats look like the best option and the last resort, but Dr. Levine additionally said that even those shoes without heels are not always the best. You may still have to look for shoe insoles for women to protect your tootsies.

It all sums up that there really is no perfect footwear. But, there’s something you can do to help make you feel comfortable in it by slipping on shoe insoles for women that give not just cushioning but arch support as well. On that note, I do suggest that you try Hydrofeet® shoe insoles for women.
