“Summer time and the livin is easy” but what you’re putting your feet through wearing flip-flops is not. When you are wearing typical Sandals your toes are constantly gripping and bunched up to keep the shoes from falling off, making it impossible for your arch to flex normally, which in turn compromises the way your forefoot pushes off when you step forward. What happens? We compensate with our hips – forcing our knees and hips to absorb the impact while not allowing our butt and the backs of our legs to fully engage, thus weakening them over time.
To help your toes recover from the stress of being clenched, Prevention Magazine, a leading publisher of health, fitness, and whole body issues, suggests stretching the muscles along the top of the foot.
Thankfully Therafit came along and designed a sandal just for you flip-flop lovers. If you suffer from foot pain or if you’re simply interested in preserving the good health of your feet, a solid pair of orthotic sandals like ours are worth the investment. With the same patented technology as our athletic line, these flip flops not only offer you the optimum amount of support (that you can customize), but the foot bed is encrusted with 86 acupressure points to stimulate the various regions of your foot. Your feet can happily enjoy the breeze in these sandals while your legs and body feel incredible support.
• Wear comfortable sandals with a thick & rigid footbed, good arch support and thick heel cups
• Use proper shoes, especially when walking for long periods to evenly distribute weight through your foot
