How Orthaheel Flip Flips Can Help Elimate Foot Pain
My Favorite Summer Sandal
In a way I consider having plantar fasciitis a blessing. Weird huh, to consider my aching, sore and painful feet a positive experience isn't it? But, if I hadn't been on the search for shoes that wouldn't hurt my feet I wouldn't of found Orthaheel Sandals.
For months I would wake up and limp to the alarm clock feeling with pins and needles shooting through the soles of my feet. I had tried custom orthotics, shoes inserts, and a variety of shoes, but Orthaheels are my favorite.
During a vacation in Arkansas I stopped into a unique shoe store in Conway Arkansas called Wilkinsons Mall, it was a warehouse type store tucked into an industrial area, not a fancy shopping center. My daughter was buying a pair of Chacos (which are all the rage in outdoor sandals) and I decided to find a pair of summer sandals that did NOT hurt my feet.
I Have Happy Healthy Feet
The minute I put my feet into the Orthaheel flip flops it was as if my feet did a sigh of relief. My feet were happy! They had instant support in the insole, I felt balanced, and my feet felt cushioned. My only problem was I never liked flip flops and the feeling of something between my toes. But, for this kind of pain relief I would learn to wear flip flops.
The sales clerk said it would take about a week for my feet to get used to the extra support and many people need to wean themselves into wearing Orthaheels by wearing them just a few hours a day. I knew the instant I put them on this wasn't going to be the case. I wore these flip flops all day, every day for a month and my feet never felt better.
What I have learned is orthopedic shoes can be fashionable and fun, they don't have to be ugly.
Shopping For Shoes Online is Easy
I have also learned buying shoes online is easy. Amazon.com has an easy, no questions asked return and refund policy, so if they don't feel right I can just put them back in the mail and get another pair. These shoes can be hard to find in stores, and they don't have all the styles. I get a lot more variety and choice when I shop online. With Amazon Prime shipping is free and they only take a couple of days to arrive.

These were the first pair of Orthaheel flip flops and I LOVE them!! Can I say it again? I Love them! They are just plain black rubber and plastic, nothing fancy, but I pop them on walk in the garden, the water, the beach, get them wet and they don't wear out.
The Orthaheel Carla II flip flop has a woven toe post which is sometimes more comfortable than rubber in between your toes. This summer sandal has faux jewels and a metallic design suitable for dressy occasions and work.
