Walk On Podiatry

Orthaheel thongsLeading into the warmer weather, now is the perfect time to be looking at an alternative footwear option for the summer months. Most of us like to spend this warmer period wearing sandals and thongs as they keep your feet cool.

Despite this perceived comfort, this style of shoe lacks the appropriate support most of us require and as many of you probably find, can't accommodate your orthotics hence this style of shoe is can leave you sore and tired after a long day on your feet.

Orthaheel sandals and thongs are a great alternative have been designed to reflect a more contemporary look whilst maintaining their full biomechanical benefits. They are perfect for the everyday beach goer and are a must have for those who wear orthotics on a daily basis. If you wear orthotics you are probably aware that you can't utilise them in the summer and that you struggle to find summer footwear with adequate support.

Orthaheel sandals and thongs feature a 4 degree built in wedge to provide some rear foot support and are made from a well cushioned EVA midsole which provides contour to your arch while moulding and softening to your foot as you wear it in. The footwear not only provides support to the arch of the foot, but is also helpful for a number of conditions such as: knee pain, hip pain, plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinitis, heel pain, lower back pain, bunions and can help to offload painful corns and callouses.

Orthaheel sandals and thongs are water resistant and come with a 30 day money back guarantee if you are not satisfied with the product. Walk On Podiatry now stock a range of these sandals and thongs for your convenience. So if you require any further advice or have any questions don’t hesitate to contact your podiatrist at your local Walk On Podiatry clinic.
