Answers to Common Podiatry Questions

Premier Health providers answer frequently asked questions about podiatry.

What should a person look for in a shoe or sandal to keep their foot healthy?

When choosing a sandal or shoe, start by avoiding a one-size-fits all design, according to Premier Health Specialists’ (PHS) physicians.

Instead PHS physicians and the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) recommend looking for a shoe or sandal that has an adjustable strap for sizing and stability.

Also, look for options with arch support, and choose shoes or sandals made of high quality leather instead of rubber or plastic, according to the PHS physicians.

Talk to your doctor for more information about healthy options to look for in summer shoes and sandals.
