When springtime rolls around, thoughts turn to refreshing and rejuvenating. Many times this means spring cleaning and ushering out the old to welcome the new. It’s fun to see pastel springtime color schemes and new warm weather styles. Jean jackets, capris, sandals…these point to a fun springtime vibe we all love to welcome.
Slipping on that springy attire is fun and rewarding, especially when you get compliments from your friends. But slipping on new springtime sandals is a different story. How many times have you fallen in love with a new pair of shoes only to realize once you bring them home that though they’re cute, they’re also uncomfortable? What to do? Some choose to suffer through the discomfort, others decide to put the new shoes in the closet with the hope that they’ll magically be more comfortable in a month or so (tip: sadly, they never are!).
Sandals can be especially tricky. It’s nice to feel the fresh air on your feet, but many times it comes at the price of comfort and support. Flip flops, for example, are a great springtime shoe. But they don’t offer much, if any, support. The “flip-flop” sound they make is fun, but it’s really the sound of your feet walking without any support on a hard, flat surface that is detrimental to your foot. And when the foot doesn’t have support, the rest of the body feels it. Because the feet are the foundation of the entire body, they determine whether or not the joints up from them–like the knees, hip, and back–are aligned. When the feet are aligned, the whole body can function properly!
Fortunately, it’s not necessary to sacrifice your desire for spring styles for all-year comfort. That’s where The Good Feet Store comes in. Good Feet arch supports can be worn in almost every style of shoe, even flip flops! The heel cup cradles the heel, stabilizing it during movement. According to Doctor and Podiatric Medicine Expert Ken Howayek, “healthy foot alignment begins here [with a well-supported heel].” Good Feet arch supports help support the heel, as well as the transverse and longitudinal arches, which is especially important but rare to find in sandals. By adding a pair of Good Feet arch supports to your favorite warm-weather shoe, you’ll get the best of both worlds.
Spring is a time of joy and growth. Give yourself the opportunity to prosper in style and comfort with Good Feet arch supports!
