Specially designed for those who need extra support when walking, extra roomy footwear and bespoke shoes can make it easier to get around. When you’re unsteady on your feet or highstreet shoes are uncomfortable with your foot condition, you may need to look elsewhere. Luckily, many mobility aid shops, like LTC Mobility, offer a range of shoes that are cosy and supportive.
Some conditions result in swelling around the foot, especially when walking, so it’s important that your shoes are roomy enough. Tight fitting shoes can cause you a lot of pain if your feet are too wide or are prone to swelling, but specially made wide-fit shoes are designed to fit women and men who need more support. It can be hard to find wider shoes on the highstreet but extra roomy shoes will keep your feet in the right position and encourage proper circulation too.
If you’re unsteady on your feet then flip flops, heels and other similar shoes are not going to provide the stability you need. Supportive shoes can ease walking by helping you to grip the floor as you take each step. Inappropriate footwear can make you feel less confident moving around the home and being out and about. But, you can minimise the risk of trips and falls by investing in good shoes that suit your needs.
Everyone deserves to have comfy shoes and not have to squeeze into something that doesn’t fit properly. Mobility footwear relieves pressure which could otherwise make your condition and symptoms a lot worse. The last thing you want is to cause additional pressure when your feet are already in pain, but with the right footwear you can make you day to day life a little more comfortable.
