6 Fashionable Women’s Arch Support Sandals You Can Buy Now to Alleviate Foot Pain

Spring has arrived, and time to treat your feet to some fresh air after being cooped up in a pair of boots all winter. But, with the freedom to wiggle your toes, can come foot issues. Since many sandals don’t offer the support closed shoes do, it’s important to do your homework before heading out sandal shopping. Consider a pair of sandals with built-in arch support, often mimicking the benefits of an over-the-counter orthotic without having to pay the added price.

Even if you have not experienced foot or heel pain, arch support sandals can enhance your comfort experience. According to The Insole Store, arch supports can help align the foot, to help alleviate pain in the knees and lower back in addition to the feet. Bottom line, they can help align the body head to toe.

Here, FN has curated some of the most fashionable arch support sandals for spring into summer.
