This summer’s stylish sandals are definite attention grabbers, but will they force you to focus on the pain they are causing your feet? The American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) has seven secrets to avoiding a sandal scandal this summer. Follow this podiatrist approved advice so you can enjoy the fun and sun with pain-free feet. Be sure to share these secrets, including the APMA accepted products, with family and friends!

Flats & Slides
Problem: arch and heel pain; inadequate cushioning and foot support
Secret Solution: avoid prolonged wearing; try cushioned inserts for shock absorption such as APMA accepted Foot Petals’ Amazing Arches; select a sole that doesn’t twist excessively

Gladiator & Strappy Sandals
Problem: irritation between toes; callus and dead skin build-up around the heels; lack of support and shock absorption
Secret Solution: select natural materials such a soft, supple leather; ensure proper fit with no toes or heels hanging off the edge

Platform & High Heels
Problem: pain in the ball of the foot and ankle injuries
Secret Solution: wear lower, more stable heels (less than 2 inches in height)

Wedge & Espadrille Sandals
Problem: ankle twist or sprain; instability and difficulty walking
Secret Solution: try a wider, flatter wedge; rubber sole with good traction

Peep-toe Sandals
Problem: loads of pressure on the tootsies; bunions and hammertoes
Secret Solution: wear only for short periods of time; insert Giovanna Toe Cushion by Heaven4Toes, an APMA accepted product

Ankle Wrap Sandals
Problem: lack of adequate ankle support; friction causing blisters
Secret Solution: try ankle wraps made of a soft, breathable material such as leather, cotton or satin; ankle wrap not too tight; apply APMA accepted Strappy Strips by Foot Petals

Overall Persistent Pain
Secret Solution: See a Podiatrist!
