Summer is made for sandals, open shoes, flip flops, lightweight shoes. Shoes that let your feet breathe. If you suffer from flat feet or plantar fasciitis, you know you need extra arch support and probably think that sandals are out of the question. Not anymore. There are sandals like the Vionic Orthaheel Unisex Sandal that make flip flops with arch support to keep you comfortable and on your feet all day.
Extra Arch Support in Flip Flops
When your feet are happy, the rest of your body is happy. Think about how tired and out of sorts you feel when your feet hurt. When your feet hurt, walking is difficult and you compensate by changing your gait, which in turn can make your back or knees hurt and you have a general feeling of grumpiness. When your feet aren’t bothering you, you don’t even think about them. You want a pair of sandals you don’t have to think about fitting and make you forget about any foot problems you might have.
The Vionic Wave sandal has lots of extra support that you’re not used to seeing in a flip flop style sandal. They feature the “Vionics Orthaheel Supportive Technology” which includes a foot bed with a deep heel cup. This was designed by a podiatrist to help support and realign your feet into their natural position. When you over pronate due to flat feet or plantar fasciitis, you put extra strain on your knees and back. These sandals are designed to correct your stance and gait and relieve that strain. Correcting your gait can relieve pain you’re already having in your knees and back and prevent further injury down the line.
The Wave Sandal has a deep heel cup and lots of extra midsole cushioning to absorb shock and reduce pressure on your feet, ankles, and knees. That extra midsole cushioning and deep heel cup help relieve plantar fasciitis pain and prevent it from getting worse with extra arch support. The bio-mechanical orthotic footbed is joined with jersey-lined nylon uppers and padded toe post for comfort. The patterned tread on the durable rubber outer sole will give you traction on a variety of surfaces.
If you always thought flip flops or sandals were out of the question due to plantar fasciitis pain or lack of arch support, these Vionic Wave Sandals for Men and Women might just be what you’ve been looking for. All-day support and comfort in lightweight flip flops for summertime.
