“Generally, people have more problems with their feet during the warm summer months because they’re more active but wear less supportive shoes or go barefoot," says Shelby Hyllengren, DPM, a podiatrist with Allina Health. "We see injuries, from cuts and scrapes to infections and broken bones, because our feet just aren’t as protected.”
