Summer is almost here and with it, the chance to let your toes feel the sunshine a bit, as you go on your summer walks, picnics, and hikes. However, just because you are wearing sandals and flip flops, it doesn’t mean that foot health and comfort are any less important! It is still vital that you take care of your feet and give them the support they need to keep you healthy and active.



Most people think of flip flops as cheap, throw-away shoes that don’t matter and don’t protect your feet. While that is true for many flip flops, they are not all created equal. Flimsy, cheap flip flops can increase your risk of foot problems because they lack proper support and cushioning. You have to work much harder to keep them on and this aggravates any existing problems not only in the foot but ankles, knees, hips, back and neck.



However, cushioned, supported flip flops are different! SOLE brand flip flops have a supportive footbed that cushions the entire foot, as you walk. This support prevents the collapse of your arches and allows you to wear them all day without pain or discomfort! The added cushion also helps them stay on your feet better.


The arch height adjusts to your required level, but does not flatten out. The forefoot takes the shape of the balls of your feet and toes, and the aligning heel cup supports your unique heel shape. This creates a continuous contact point across the soles of your feet, leaving no area unsupported. This means that you get a superior fit and expert support and comfort.
