Recovery Sandals Provide Comfort and Support for Tired Feet
There’s no feeling quite like kicking your feet up after a long run (or a long day at work). But sometimes life doesn’t let you relax on the couch.
So, when you still have dinner to make, dishes to clean and kids to get into bed, you need another option to soothe your hard-working feet. That’s where recovery slides and sandals come in.
Also, who wants to wear shoes all day when it’s so hot outside? The bad news: going barefoot and wearing flat sandals are not good for your feet and can cause painful conditions like plantar fasciitis (heel pain). The good news: there are great sandal options out there that are good for your feet.
“Good recovery sandals provide support and cushioning with a contoured foot bed, meaning they aren’t flat,” says Anne Stancil, the owner of Fleet Feet Tucson. “They are great to wear after a workout or long day at work because they allow your toes to stretch and flex and also have a massage element.”
“We see a spike in plantar fasciitis cases and other foot issues in warmer weather because people are going barefoot or wearing flat, unsupportive sandals,” Stancil explains. “Having a sandal for inside and outside can keep your feet comfy and healthy all summer.”
Like anything you put on your feet, sandals should fit properly, cradling the arches of your feet without putting too much pressure on them. “When you wear a recovery sandal, your foot should feel almost like it’s being massaged,” says Stancil.
In addition to helping prevent foot pain, good quality sandals provide moisture management, offer an anti-slip surface and provide protection from rocks, thorns, and glass.
