It isn’t surprising that sandal wear increases as the temperature increases. It may be surprising, however, that the number of planter fasciitis cases also increase during this time from the lack of support that sandals offer.
Most sandals offer convenience and a relaxed feel but a rather nominal arch support at best. Imagine the potential harm you are doing to your feet when you walk around in cheap sandals all summer long, especially when you put them on right after your race to get out of your running shoes. In the same way that you should have your feet fitted to determine the best pair of shoes for your feet, you should do the same for sandals especially if you wear them a lot in the summer.
Complete Runner offers the most respected brands in sandals like Teva (Barracuda shown), Chaco, and Sole that are sure to give you awesome comfort and arch support your feet need. They also come in a wide variety of styles, since we don’t like that “one type fits all” approach.
Whether you are walking around town, on vacation, or after a summer race, be sure to keep your feet protected from planter fasciitis with quality sandals with arch support.
