There's no need to sacrifice style just because you have a foot condition. Our podiatrist, Dr. Lori Paragas of CT Family Foot Care and Surgery in Hamden, CT, explains how stylish Vionic shoes can ease your pain.
What are orthopedic shoes?
Orthopedic shoes are designed to cushion and support your feet and improve their alignment. They're also roomier than the shoes you find in stores, making them the perfect choice if you have a hammertoe or bunion. If you have diabetes, orthopedic shoes may be recommended to help you avoid diabetic foot ulcers. The shoes help prevent ulcers by reducing pressure on your feet.
Orthopedic shoes can also help reduce knee, hip, or back pain. When your feet aren't properly aligned, they can't adequately support your body. As a result, you may experience nagging pain in your back, hip, or knees. Orthopedic shoes are an excellent choice if your feet turn inward (overpronation) or you have weak arches or other structural problems with your feet.
What are Vionic shoes?
Vionic shoes were first created by Phillip Vasyli, an Australian podiatrist who wanted to find a better, less expensive orthopedic shoe option for his patients. His shoes, one of the few brands approved by the American Podiatric Medical Association, offer exceptional support and alignment. Vionic shoes, available in our Hamden office, feature:
- Orthaheel Technology: A deep heel cup improves stability and alignment and reduces heel pain.
- Flexible Midsole: The firm, flexible midsole supports your arches and helps you avoid pain in your knees, hips or back.
- Excellent Stability: Have you given up on wearing flip-flops or sandals because your feet hurt after just an hour or two? Vionics' selection of flip flops and sandals improve stability and offer the support you need.
- Wide Selection: Whether you need a walking, athletic, casual, or dress shoe, Vionic offers plenty of stylish options. In fact, no one will be able to tell that you're wearing orthodpedic shoes when you slip on a pair of Vionics.
