Picking the right summer shoe
Warm summer days are perfect for flip-flops and sandals. However, make sure you’re wearing something supportive on your feet to avoid injury.
You shouldn’t wear something overly cushioned. That could cause you to lose your balance.
You also want to avoid sandals and flip-flops that can bend and twist easily. Shoes like this can get caught on a raised curb or stone.
“Oftentimes, we will see patients, they just trip and fall. Also, if patients are wearing shoes that don’t have any support, they can easily sprain ankles, they can stub toes,” said Dr. Joy Rowland, a podiatrist.
Also, avoid wearing flip-flops and sandals that are too thin in case you step on a sharp rock or glass.
