Pick the Right Pair: Shoes That Support a Healthy Spine

There is nothing better than finding the perfect pair of shoes. If you’re a woman, then you really know just how good this feels. Heels that are the perfect color, the perfect height, and comfortable?! You have probably died and gone to shoe heaven. In all seriousness, however, shoes can make or break an outfit and your self esteem. But, do you know what else it can make or break? Your health. Good shoes can help to keep your back and spine healthy and you feeling your best, So, what do you look for to make sure you have a pair that will improve your health? Read on to find out.

Go for Comfort

I know you want those gorgeous heels, but if they aren’t comfortable for your feet, then they probably aren’t good for your back either. Choose shoes that are cute, sure, but also make sure that they provide comfort for your foot. The more comfortable they are on your foot, the more likely they are to be easy on the spine in the long run.

Look for Support

Though you can’t always predict support just by looking, there are some obvious ways to tell. For example, if you buy a flip flop, you definitely aren’t getting any support. This is probably the case with a lot of sandals and heels as well. A good way to tell if something is supportive is to pay attention to the arch, the sole, and to feel of the material. The thicker and softer, the more likely it is to provide optimal support.

Walk in Them

Before you buy, make sure that you have spent some length of time wearing the shoes. Obviously, it is not like a car so you can’t take them for a test drive, but you can spend more than the typical 10-15 seconds. Put them on your feet, and then make at least a few paces in them. The more you move in the shoes, the more likely you are to notice any negative side effects. This small step can keep you from making a mistake in your shoe buying options.
