What exactly is "healthy footwear"?
To put it simply: it's footwear that lets your foot function properly. The human foot is jam packed with all the technology it needs to function optimally.
Shoes that have the following features will eventually give you foot problems:
-Cushioning (disrupts your connection to the ground below you)
-Arch support (weakens your feet)
-Elevated heels (not just high heels - most running shoes these days have an elevated heel)
-Narrow forefoot that squishes your feet and toes
Wearing shoes with a wide forefoot, thin & flat sole, zero cushioning and no built in rigidity is how the foot works best.......aka barefoot footwear
Make the change to restore healthy, strong feet and escape foot pain for good
