Flat Shoes Can Cause Foot Problems for Women

We’ve written before about the problems associated with wearing high heels for long periods (see our blog on the risks of wearing high heels).

But switching from high heels to just any type of flat shoe may not be the right solution. Some types of flats potentially can cause foot health problems.

Flat Shoes May Cause Many Foot and Toe Problems

You Can Wear Flats and Be Comfortable

If fatigue and pain from wearing flimsy, flat shoes persists, please call Stavros O. Alexopoulos, DPMfor an examination. We’ll address any problems we see and discuss appropriate footwear. Custom-fitted orthotics that are made just for you can help make flat shoes more comfortable and healthy for your feet.

Limiting the time that you wear flat shoes, just as you should limit your time in high heels, can allow you to wear your favorite slipper shoes in comfort.
