It’s great to see that even Dr. Oz is helping to educate people about the benefits of wearing the right shoes to keep your feet healthy. Check out this Dr. Oz show video to see what he has to say about determining your arch type – normal, flat, or high, and what the wear patterns on your shoes can tell you about your feet, so you can be sure when you’re shopping for shoes that you find the best shoe for you.
And from my perspective as a foot-fitness expert… good shoes can help support your feet, but keeping your foot, ankle, and leg muscles strong, fit, and flexible is even better. Even if it’s only for 2-3 minutes a couple of times a week. Taking time to exercise your feet can help improve your arches, retrain gait habits, and help you enjoy pain-free feet!
