Slippers are Supportive too!

If you have troublesome feet or struggle with foot pain for various reasons, you may already realize the benefits of proper shoes. They help prevent and treat many foot conditions and can often eliminate foot pain. However, did you know that this therapeutic effect can continue, even when you are home and cozy for the evening, in your home footwear? It’s true. Even slippers can be therapeutic!

 

Besides keeping feet warm and cushioned from the hard floor, slippers can provide arch support for people with certain foot issues. We carry a wide selection of Haflingers: German-made, boiled wool slippers that offer comfort and warmth with strong arch support. Those who suffer from plantar fasciitis will often benefit from supportive slippers. Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common causes of heel pain, although pain can also be in the arch, ball or top of the foot.  Doctors often tell people with plantar fasciitis they either need to wear shoes with arch supports around the house or slippers with support.  They suggest that sufferers wear support even when getting up in the middle of the night. Having a slipper with built-in arches works well. Come see us today to find the perfect pair of comfy slippers or house shoes to support your feet!

  1. Excellent article. I used to go barefoot alot and suffered with plantar fasciitis for almost a year. A friend recommended the Haflinger slippers and my pain was gone in a week. Proper support is so important and these slippers are a must.
