It's very common for symptoms of RA to first appear in the toes and then the forefoot, back of the feet, and ankles, says Alison Garten, DPM, CPed, vice president of the American Association of Women Podiatrists, and a podiatrist in Washington, D.C. These foot problems can make shoe shopping more challenging for people with RA.

The most important consideration is that the shoes you're considering offer support, says Dr. Garten. The more support a shoe has, the more it will protect your joints and provide shock absorption — features you want when you have rheumatoid arthritis. Good support means choosing shoes with good arches. Also look for removable insoles that can be replaced with better over-the-counter insoles or custom orthotics that provide even more support. Avoid styles like mules or slip-ons, which offer no support.
