PODIATRIST RECOMMENDS RUBBER OVER LEATHER SOLES FOR SHOES
posted: Aug 14, 2019.
D.C.-area podiatrist Dr. Franklin Polun, says many of his patients aren't willing to throw out their Manolo Blahniks (or knock-offs). "A high-heeled shoe is sexier-looking," he said. "I get that." So he tries to give them "an action plan that's actually do-able."

Polun's advice includes going with a rubber-soled shoe over leather, because rubber absorbs pressure on nerves in the feet. He also suggests shopping for shoes at the end of the day, when your foot is most swollen.
