As Podiatrists we know the importance of having correct, supportive and comfortable shoes to keep you pain free on your feet. Shoes become the ground that we walk on because they play a key role in providing balance, stability, and preventing injuries. Shoes can impact the way our feet and lower limbs move, function and the way you walk.
Footwear plays an important role in protecting your feet as well as offering support. Most foot conditions can be alleviated if the correct footwear is chosen for the right activity. It is especially important for children to have correctly fitted shoes to avoid further complications down the track and enable the foot to develop naturally.
Abnormal wear patterns on the sole of the shoe, heel or in the upper can indicate problems with your foot posture and the way you walk. Your Podiatrist can assess your footwear for stability, cushioning and distribution of load and how suitable these qualities are for your daily activities. Our Podiatrists specialise in pairing your feet and their characteristics with the right shoes that will provide the support that you need.
The Podiatrists at Foot & Sole Podiatry can also guide you to various footwear providers to supply you the most suitable shoe for your needs to ensure they fit well and last a long time.
