Tips to prevent the most common causes of achy feet from summer shoes.

Ah, so many summer shoe options.

So what and how do you choose?

A nude wedge, I wear them with dresses and shorts they're very comfortable!

Something you know where you can feel the air through your toes.

Podiatrist dr. Rami calis explains that during the summer, people tend to be more active.

Unfortunately, the shoewear that goes along with a lot of the summer activity tends to be less supportive so people become more prone to injuries

Injuries like heel pain on the bottom or the back of the heel.

He suggests four features of shoes that you should consider having to prevent these aches.

One - is have something around the ankle to hold the shoe in place.

Two - have some sort of arch in the shoe if possible.

Three - would be a thicker rubber sole to give you some shock absportion.

Four - to have a slightly deeper heel cup to hold your heel in position.

And since many shoes don't have all of these qualities?

Some of them would be okay but to find one with none of them, you'd be asking for trouble.

Dr. Calis says flip-flops are okay for lounging around.

But if you're walking, he recommends a shoe with more support.
