Whether or not your flat feet cause you pain, wearing the right shoe is vital. Slipping your feet into the wrong pair can lead to ankle, knee, hip, back, shoulder, and even neck problems later down the road, cautions Edgard Nau, DPM, a podiatrist at Manhattan Home Podiatric in New York City. The right shoe will provide a comfortable haven for tired, achy, and swollen feet.

So what should you look for? Bruce Pinker, DPM, a podiatrist and foot surgeon with Progressive Foot Care, says an ideal pair will firmly cup the heel and offer sturdy arch support. The toe box should provide ample room, and the shank, or middle part of the shoe, should be somewhat flexible—not too rigid, but not too flimsy.

Vaseline is a super affordable way to soften callused skin. "It’s a sealant," explains Emily Splichal, DPM, a New York City-based podiatrist. "When you take a bath or shower, your skin absorbs all the water and moisture. Vaseline helps lock all that in so it stays within the skin." Apply it to a callus immediately after bathing, then cover the area with plastic wrap overnight to seal in moisture and nix rough skin.

To treat calluses and massage your feet at the same time, try using a pumice stone. "These are better than the blades they use in nail salons because the chance of cutting yourself is much lower," explains Dr. Splichal. In addition to applying topical treatments like creams or ointments nightly, Dr. Splichal encourages patients to use "mechanical debridement" tools like the Ped Egg foot file on calluses one to two times per week to remove coarse skin on the foot.

When your profession involves anything from running alongside a gurney to standing for hours in the ER or operating room, the right shoes are a must. “You now see all kinds of medical professionals on hospital floors wearing running shoes that are designed to stand up to a lot of stress and strain,” says Karen Langone, DPM, a podiatrist based in Southampton, New York. Clogs are also a good choice, says Howard Friedman, DPM, a Suffern, New York-based podiatrist. They tend to have a wide toe box, which helps accommodate feet as they naturally expand throughout the day. This is why you often see surgeons and other health professionals wearing them in the operating room, Friedman says.

To help keep pain at bay, you’ll want to pick up at least two pairs of supportive sneakers or clogs. (Or one of each!) A shoe's cushioning becomes completely compressed after six hours or so and no longer offers support, Friedman cautions. So having two great pairs allows you to change halfway through your shift.

Dr. Jacob Wynes
 
 
According to Jacob Wynes, DPM, assistant professor in the department of orthopaedics at the University of Maryland School of Medicine & Foot and Ankle Surgery, the simple act of soaking your feet can lead to fluctuations in moisture balance as well as fissuring, which is a known cause of cellulitis or deep-skin infection, especially in patients who are prone to leg swelling. He recommends avoiding prolonged soaking, particularly if you are prone to dry skin.
