On your feet all day? More than likely your feet will start to swell as the day goes on, especially as the weather gets warmer.
But there’s an easy fix for tired, swollen feet. While a foot soak at your local spa can do wonders, a pair of shoes that adjusts to the changes in your foot shape will comfortably take you through a day of sightseeing to running errands around town.
Now, don’t think these styles are bulky looks designed for those with medical foot conditions such as diabetes and require a wide-width shoe. Instead, these are everyday casuals, athleisure and sandal styles designed with lightweight stretch uppers and adjustable straps that allow you to adjust to the foot for a customized fit.
Those on their feet for long periods of time are not the only ones who can benefit by adding a pair of shoes with adjustability to their wardrobes. Moms-to-be often find they have issues with swollen feet. And since many styles don’t need to be tied, pregnant women will find them easy to slip on and off.
These adjustable fit shoes make great travel companions since they can be worn in-flight where feet tend to swell. And, the mesh uppers allow air to circulate preventing feet from sweating.
To enhance the customization of many of these styles, they come equipped with removable insoles, another easy way to adjust the fit of a shoe. It also makes good sense health-wise to remove insoles and air them out since bacteria can grow causing foot issues.
