When you choose shoes, it’s important to consider your arch type too. Our arches have many jobs as they assist with weight-bearing and movement, bringing flexibility and stability to your foot.
If you follow shoe trends – or maybe that special lady in your life does – you probably have heard of the new floss heels. A floss heel – named for the dental product because their straps are so wispy – has virtually no supportive structure for the foot, even with a thin ankle strap. The heel is flimsy and, at 2 ½ inches, is a little too high for daily wear.
With our intentions for the New Year set to inspire us along the way, it can be helpful to learn about what exactly weight loss can potentially help you avoid when it comes to foot and ankle health. Untreated foot and ankle issues can contribute to weight gain by preventing you from being active!
