Deborah suffered for several years with Plant Fasciitis, or painful heels, until she experimented with several brands of shoes.

If Your Feet are Sore, Owning the Right Pair of Shoes is Essential

Mephisto Shoes are Comfortable and Attractive

Are you interested in buying a pair of attractive, comfortable shoes? Do you have sore feet and legs? Does it hurt to walk very far?

When I try on a pair of shoes, I am just as concerned about comfort as I am about appearance. I have plantar fasciitis and, since I was diagnosed with this painful condition in the heel of my foot, I have been on a quest for shoes that I can wear and feel happy with my choice. While I want to have shoes that looks cute, it is also important to me that I can wear them all day without wishing that I could go barefoot, instead.

Because of my need for comfort, as well as something that looks fashionable, some of my friends suggested that I consider Mephisto shoes. Once I discovered them, I was pleasantly surprised by how comfortable they are! I was also delighted that they also have a lot of cute styles. Truthfully, I would have been willing to wear the ugliest shoes imaginable, just to get rid of the pain. While I don't own all the shoe designs that Mephisto carries, of course, I do have a few pairs of their summer sandals that I love. Gradually, I will probably add other colors and styles.

Mephisto carries a full line of men's and women's shoes, both closed toe as well as open toe sandals. While some of the styles look purely functional, other choices are quite cute. Mephisto shoes tended to rank well when I have read reviews on Amazon and other sites, too, which indicates to me that many people have been satisfied with the shoes this line of shoes.

What is the Best Design for Plantar Fasciitis?

Since Plantar Fasciitis is one of the most common problems people have with the heel or arch of their feet, it is important that you consult with your podiatrist about the type of shoe that would be right for you.

My podiatrist told me that ideally I should wear a shoe that has my heel about one-half inch to an inch higher than the ball of my foot. In this way, my weight is more evenly distributed between the heel and the ball of the foot, and all the weight is not on the heel. This reduces the pressure on the heel.

Even with the right shoes, however, some people will need to get an insert for their shoes, especially when they are first diagnosed with this painful condition. That will help them keep their feet in the right position while their feet heal.

In addition, it is important to know that it can take months for a foot to heal, once you have developed plantar fasciitis. It does not go away right away.

My podiatrist also told me that I should avoid going barefoot, even in the house, until the pain went away.

By following these instructions and wearing the correct style of shoes, I discovered that the pain did eventually go away and my feet now seem to have heeled. However, I am very careful to continue to wear the right styles of shoes so that it does not develop again.

These Sandals Have the Right Weight Distribution and Comfortable Soles

These Helen Thongs come in a wide variety of colors, including red, which makes them a perfect choice in the summer when you are looking for sandals to wear with your different outfits. They are comfortable and attractive, too. Very stylish!

 

Look For a Shoe That is Also Durable

Many of the Mephisto Women's Sandals have leather uppers and a latex sole, which should wear well. The sole is cushioned for greater comfort.

One of the reviews I read on Amazon stated that this was this buyer's second purchase of this particular sandal. The first pair had lasted six years, and the writer believed they were the most comfortable pair of shoes she had ever owned. Of the four reviews on the site, all of the buyers gave the shoes either four or five stars. There were no bad reviews. When I consider the fact that I nearly always see a bad review of any products that I have purchased online, this was a pleasant surprise.

I love their thong sandals. I think they are quite attractive, and a nice change from the typical flip flop.

Allrounder Shoes For People Who Work on Their Feet

The Allrounder Fisherman Sandal by Mephisto is a comfortable and darling combination of an athletic shoe, sandal and great walking shoe. It has a leather upper and rubber sole. It comes in a variety of colors and designs. These are great shoes to wear to the grocery store or a sporting event.

In addition, these shoes are known for their comfort as well as for their attractiveness, which makes them popular with teachers, soccer moms, medical staff, and anyone who needs to spend a lot of time on their feet.

What is your favorite brand of comfortable shoes?

      I've never heard of Meisto Shoes for Women but they sure sound comfortable. I like Minnetonkas for my sore feet but might have try these after reading this great review.

      @mel-kav: Try finding shoes in your size that are wedges. The heel should be only about 1 to 1 1/2 inches higher than the toes. That is what my podiatrist recommends for dealing with sore heals. Hope that helps!

      I often have pain in my left heel. I would so love to try a pair of these shoes, but unfortunately, it doesn't look like they carry my size - I wear a children's size 3.
