Summer’s here, but be careful the season’s footwear doesn’t destroy your feet. Here are tips:


  • Flips flops have no arch support, which can lead to a painful condition called plantar fasciitis. Wear a pair with built-in arch support.
  • Wedge sandals lack flexibility, which can cause slipping and lead to sprains. For stability, wear short wedges.
  • Sling backs can crack your heels and cause blisters. So rub antiperspirant on your feet to keep them dry and friction free.
