  • PODIATRIST DISCUSSES WHAT TO WEAR (OR NOT TO WEAR) ON YOUR LUNCHTIME STROLL

PODIATRIST, DR. STEPHEN M. PRIBUT, PAST PRESIDENT OF THE AMERICAN ACADEMY OF PODIATRIC SPORTS MEDICINE  (AAPSM) STATES, "YOU FORGOT YOUR ATHLETIC SHOES AT HOME, BUT YOU HEAD OUT FOR YOUR LUNCHTIME WALK ANYWAY IN A PAIR OF 3-INCHERS.  IF YOUR 'WALK' IS A SHORT STROLL AS YOU BROUSE THE SHOPS, YOU'RE PROBABLY OKAY.  BUT IF YOU'RE PLANNING A 20-BLOCK HIKE, YOU COULD BE IN TROUBLE.  THE SOLE OF A HIGH-HEELED SHOE IS NOT CONSTRUCTED CORRECTLY FOR LONG-DISTANCE WALKING AND THE HIGHER THE HEEL, THE WORSE IT WILL BE.  SUMMER SANDALS AND MULES CAN EVEN BE MORE DETRIMENTAL."

MY FOOT CLINIC NEVER RECOMMENDS HIGH HEELS AND NEVER FOR WALKING.  FLIP-FLOPS ARE ONLY FOR PUBLIC AREAS SUCH AS POOLS.  SOME SANDALS WHICH ARE SUPPORTIVE ARE NOT THAT BAD FOR WALKING.  OUR FOOT CLINIC HAS A LARGE SELECTION OF ORTHOTIC SANDLALS.

BROUGHT TO YOU BY DR. JOHN A. HARDY, OWNER OF ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS.
