Walk On Podiatry



Archies Thongs 

Archies Support Orthotic ThongsLooking for a comfortable alternative to barefoot this summer? 

Have you ever found that your feet seem to hurt or ache more in the summer…? Think about it for a second and you’ll realise it’s true. There are a number of reasons for this. Many of us tend to try and kick off the new year with a new found motivation to lose weight and exercise which can often lead to foot and ankle soreness. However a a common thing we see as podiatrists is that people gravitate towards thongs and even barefoot over the summer months and this is one of the worst things you can do for your feet. Read More...



Troublesome Summer Footwear: Sandals and Thongs 

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. Read More...

Looking for alternative footwear this spring racing seasonLadies, the spring racing season is upon us! Whilst it is the perfect time of year to dress up in our fashion finest and indulge in a little pampering, the aftermath of it all can leave you with mixed the emotions of regret and self-pity. Unfortunately I can’t give you any advice on how to explain the hefty figure on the bank statement from buying that must-have dress, or how to deal with consequences of enjoying a little too much fruity lexia.

Do you know when we should be using a  running shoe and when a cross trainer would be more appropriate? Have a read of these few tips.Having worked in a technical footwear store fitting athletic footwear, I often get asked many questions about footwear. In a series of blogs over the coming months I will aim to answer some more FAQs podiatrists get relating to footwear. One of the most common questions I get asked is “can I use a runner for walking even if I don’t run?” In short, yes, you can use a running shoe if you plan on walking and don’t intend to do any running but there are some significant differences between runners and cross trainers that many of us don’t know and it is important to make sure you are using the right shoe for your desired activity.  Read More...



Men's Health Week - Work Boots 

Men's Ascent Alpha Work BootThis week is Men's Health Week and many of us often neglect our feet. When we think about footwear and injury prevention we generally relate this to our running shoes or exercise footwear, we rarely give a thought to the other shoes in our footwear collection.

Quite often our work shoe, which we all spend upwards of 30 hours a week in, is forgotten. For many, like myself, this isn't a major issue as we spend the majority of the day seated at a desk. For anyone working long hours spending the majority of the day on their feet, selecting the right footwear can be significant in preventing injuries and soreness in the lower back, hips, knees, ankles and feet. Read More...
