How Your Shoes Affect Your Body
Proper posture is something that’s been drilled into us from a very young age. Sit up straight! Don’t slouch! Unfortunately, millions of people around the world just can’t seem to fix their posture and end up suffering from issues like back pain and discomfort.
While you might not think it, your shoes can contribute to bad posture by changing the way we stand and walk throughout the day – which in turn affects the rest of our body.
Wear Shoes Made for Your Body
Take a moment to look at your feet? Are your aches high or low? Do you under- or over-prone your foot when you walk? All of these are factors that affect which shoes you should wear to walk and stand comfortably.
Invest in Orthotic Sandals
Just like you, we love wearing thongs in Summer. Unfortunately, they’re not the most supportive type of shoe out there – or are they? Zori Orthotic Sandals and Thongs are a great option for people who want to enjoy the freedom of sandals, with the support of high-quality orthotic shoes. Not only do they give your feet the customised support you need to walk comfortably, but they also make good posture easier to achieve.
Speak to A Professional
Bad posture hurts your body in the long run, that’s no surprise. However, if you’re experiencing severe pain in your back or feet while standing or walking, don’t be afraid to reach out to a professional. They’ll be able to pinpoint the cause, recommend a treatment, and advise you on the right foot-wear and products for your body.
