After a long day of work, walking, or out with friends do you immediately take your shoes off when you get home, complaining about how terrible your feet hurt? Do you also have aches in your legs and lower back? If you answered yes to either of these, Independently Yours and Vionic have the solutions for you. Your pain is not a result of the activities you were doing, or how much walking you did that day. Rather it is a matter of what you were wearing while doing those activities, in particular what kind of footwear were you wearing.
Our feet were not designed to walk on flat, hard surfaces. They were meant for the soft elements of nature like soil, grass and sand. Shoes, boots, sandals and sneakers were designed to protect our feet from the hard man-made walking surfaces. While these shoes protect us from the ground and other obstructions, if you are wearing the wrong kind of shoe you may be doing more damage to your body then you are protecting it. The benefit of walking barefoot is that we are walking and standing on our feet in our body’s natural position or natural alignment, creating proper posture and weight distribution. Almost all of the time, once we put on a shoe we lose this natural alignment.
Vionic shoes and sandals feature an Orthaheel Technology that is bio-mechanically designed to hug your arches and support natural alignment. They feature a deep heel cup to enhance stability, substantial arch support and a firm but flexible midsole. When your body is in a proper, natural alignment your common pains and aches will be reduce. You will also notice that your stature and posture is more upright.
Plantar Fasciitis is a dull to severe pain located in your heel caused by strain or inflammation on your plantar fascia (foot tissue). Plantar Fasciitis is caused when your feet roll in too far with each step. The rolling is also known as over-pronation. Often times, the over-pronation can be due to pregnancy, weight gain, tight muscles, new physical exercise. or wearing unsupportive flat footwear. With over-pronation, your arches collapse causing painful strain on the tissues on the bottom of your foot. The number 1 relief for plantar fasciitis is wearing orthopedi shoes or orthotic inserts. It is an easy and effective method or naturally realigning the foot. It multiple studies, Vionic Sandals have been shown to effectively alleviate heel pain.
