As footwear experts, we believe that there is not enough emphasis placed on the importance of correct footwear for your health. We want to dedicate this section to describing the health benefits of comfortable shoes.
If we are sure of anything here at Pitillos, it is that if you care about wearing proper footwear, you ensure that you move much better throughout the day without anything stopping you. By wearing comfortable, quality shoes you are investing your money in a pair of shoes that will serve you for a long time and that will avoid many setbacks. Wearing comfortable footwear has all kinds of benefits for our body, especially in relation to foot care. But not only for our feet.
Let’s see one by one the health advantages of buying comfortable shoes.
They prevent foot pain
Good shoes made with quality, breathable materials and with a comfortable sole allow you a better comfort when it comes to being on the move. The best footwear for someone is one that does not do any damage, that does not rub or squeeze, and with which it feels as if you are practically barefoot, but with the protection needed to walk on any type of surface.
We should also look for this feature in shoes that are usually not comfortable a priori, such as men’s dress shoes or women’s heels. Pitillos has a large selection of very elegant but equally comfortable models, because your feet can be comfortable even on the more special occasions.
They improve posture
Some uncomfortable shoes prevent us from walking properly, forcing the natural position of the foot, ankles, knees and hips, and, in general, the back and the whole body.
When we wear appropriate shoes, it is much easier to maintain a more natural posture, without our joints or muscles being affected. If the shoe also has a little heel, it will be much more comfortable not to force the strap, and to be able to walk fully upright without discomfort.
No long term damage
Comfortable shoes that do not tighten prevent frequent foot problems such as corns, spurs, bunions and other deformations such as plantar fasciitis or joint ailments. They are small damages that occur little by little without us noticing but in the end they accumulate, and it can be very uncomfortable to lead a normal life. Better if we can avoid them!
They improve circulation
When shoes are not comfortable, or they cause damage, they end up making feet swell, causing bad circulation in the entire body and, at the same time, making it terribly uncomfortable to walk. In order to improve circulation, even if you spend a lot of time sitting or standing, shoes of good quality can help by promoting venous return and preventing the appearance of oedema and varicose veins problems.
They allow you to be more active
It goes without saying that when we wear shoes that feel as if we are walking on clouds, we feel much more comfortable going about our daily routine without stopping. If you do not want unbearable shoes to be bothering you all day, invest in a good pair of comfortable shoes to get you to the end of your day as fresh as you were in the early morning, with no pain and with no discomfort!
