Vionic Girls’s Tide Flip Flop

Dr. Woodruff says Vionic clinically tests their shoes, and the women’s Tide flip-flops have shown to be particularly effective at alleviating heel pain. “They have biomechanical tri-planar motion control in the footbed and a deep heel cup, which helps to stabilize the feet and hold them in a more neutral position,” Dr. Woodruff says. He adds: “These sandals are lightweight and are made out of medium density EVA, which helps to absorb shock and reduces stress on the feet, ankles and knees. This is the same material used in the top cover of many orthotic devices.”

And it’s not just the expert who’s a fan of this product. Customer Chiaro wrote, “How is it possible that a fantastic orthopedic flip flop shoe can be this cute?? This shoe is amazing at solving all my foot issues, of which there are plenty. 🙂 Super high arch in need of support and plantar fasciitis are completely eased while wearing these babies!! Seriously, I got three different pairs because I plan on living in them.”

Customer Mary T. Graffeo added that Vionic shoes seem to last years: “These Tide Sequins sandals are beautiful and VERY supportive! I bought them as replacements for my very first pair of Vionics—from about 15 years ago!—which have now seen better days. The foot bed of Vionics are just as good as my expensive podiatrist made insoles. I wear Vionics every day, whether their sneaker Walkers, their insoles (in every shoe), or their sandals. With plantar fasciitis, flat feet, really bad knees and back problems, Vionics are my pain relief prescriptions! It is wonderful to not have to “bread in” any pair of Vionic shoes—I just open the box, put them on, and go! And, so it is with the Tide Sequin sandals! Beautiful, comfortable, supportive—you can’t ask for more!”

HOKA ONE Men’s Ora Recovery Flip Flops

Dr. Woodruff says the men’s HOKA ONE Ora Recovery flip-flops are an example of HOKA’s many shoes designed with a lot of cushioning. “This sandal has some great features,” Dr. Woodruff says. “It has the same oversized midsole as a lot of the HOKA shoes. It also has the meta-rocker geometry, which helps to rock the foot forward and does not put so much stress on the metatarsal heads or ball of the foot. It is made in two layers, one that is very cushioned and the other for durability. The top layer is EVA, which is another material that is used by many podiatrists to help cushion orthotics. This product is recommended by the American Podiatric Medical Association and has their seal of approval.”

Customers say that the HOKA ONE men’s Ora sandal is ideal for people with heal pain, and some shoppers stated their shock at how comfortable they were. James, for one, said, “I never realized how flat, hard, and unsupportive the flip flops I previously wore were until I slipped these soft yet wonderfully supportive magical shoes onto my feet.”
