Walking on Clouds: Tips for maximum foot comfort
For people suffering from heel pain there are a few things you can do to minimise it, while maximising comfort. Many people accept the pain they feel, and the tiredness they experience at the end of the day, thinking it a normal part of daily life, without experiencing the relief that a proper insole can give in providing support throughout the day. Having a soft step can help to reduce pain, but also may make you forget your feet entirely, unless you just really enjoy the feeling of light feet!
Consider what you wear
One way to ensure comfort is to consider the shoes you wear. While boots might be heavy, they do offer a lot of support, which is something of a trade-off. For thin soled shoes such as flats or sandals, you aren’t given much support, which can affect your feet, especially the arches. Insoles could benefit you here too.
Also, for the sake of comfort for skin, try to rotate the shoes you wear daily, and try not to wear the same pair of shoes for more than two days in a row. This will allow the toes and other parts of the shoe to dry out, and you won’t be wearing increasingly damp shoes that could affect your feet.
