For Priya Parthasarathy, DPM, a podiatrist in Silver Spring, MD, August and September aren’t just the transition from summer into fall. Instead, she calls that time of year “plantar fasciitis season.” The culprit? Flip-flops. “Everyone has been wearing flip-flops all summer,” said Dr. Parthasarathy, a spokeswoman for the American Podiatric Medical Association.

“Flip-flops don’t provide any support. There’s no structure,” Dr. Parthasarathy said. “Your feet have to work much harder to grip the flip-flop.” Dr. Parthasarathy, who is also a runner, opts for Birkenstocks, which have structure to them.
