Summertime footwear is so easy isn’t it? Just slide into a pair of flip flops and you are good to go. No fuss, no muss…
I know many of you know there is a connection there. Wearing flip flops causes the pain to returns. But, it is so hard to give up that summertime ease!
Since pain is simply a signal from the body that it is working too hard, let’s find ways to make summer easier on the feet so we can keep moving.
Even though it is not as easy to slip into, finding sandals with a back makes all the difference. Why? Because the toes and muscles in the feet can relax. Without support for the back of the foot, the muscles over work to keep the shoe on with each step. It is subtle, but over time it makes a big difference.
