There’s a lot of information for various foot gait concerns with runners or fitness enthusiasts of any kind. There’s also a lot of suggestions for those who need targeted work shoes for a specific foot issue or gait. However, what if you just need or want a casual shoe? For women, the main suggestion is easy enough: avoid high heels. If you’ve spent any time in them or seen a woman’s feet after wearing them, you know why.
Earthies Bindi with Arch Support
Fashion dress shoes do a real number on the actual foot structure. But many people tend to slide on the opposite side of the scale, which can be almost as dangerous – especially if you have flat feet. From ballet flats to minimal Zumba shoes, flats can be a saving grace for overused and abused feet. But if you choose the wrong ones, they can actually cause as much damage as heels; or they can increase the problems you’re trying so desperately to reduce and repair.
When it comes to flat feet, you need a good combination of support and cushioning without overdoing it. Add too much or too little of either, and you might as well walk barefoot. Earthies are among the best flats for flat feet for this reason. The company has been promoting health and wellness through their feminine-friendly shoes. And their Women’s Bindi Pacific leather flat is one of the best modern fashion options for daily wear.
Bindi combines classic comfort with alluring grace in an all-day fashion accessory you can be proud to wear. Multiple color options are available in real nubuck and leather to flawlessly polish any style – from jeans and your favorite t-shirt, to a pencil skirt and silk shell, or even a tailored business suit. These are so cute, the surrounding fashion options are as endless as these shoes are timeless. The entire upper wraps the 1.24” wedge heel in luxurious leather. This makes the shoe look like a true flat while giving you just a slight lift. Laser cutouts and scallops give the shoe a feminine look while providing breathability.
Built-in insole provides anatomic arch support and nice padding, both of which make them excellent flats for flat feet. This are often promoted as excellent shoes for problem feet and those who suffer from plantar fasciitis. However, the insole does have a stitched line which can irritate some after wearing them for a while. Adding an extra insole – gel or otherwise – can take care of the issue immediately. These are true to size for most; but if you lean towards the wider side, be sure to order a half size larger than normal.
