Believe it or not, men suffer just about the same as women do when it comes to wearing fashionable dress shoes. Unlike women that force themselves to wear unhealthy pumps or high heeled shoes, men squeeze their feet into nice looking narrow dress shoes that are often way too small for their feet. Toes end up smashed together because of the small narrow toe boxes and with each new step taken the weight of the body is unevenly distributed to the feet causing extreme pressure to the ball of foot and forefront areas. Hammertoes, bunions, corns, calluses, Metatarsalgia, neuromas, and other unhealthy foot conditions may be the end result. But it doesn’t end there. Men’s dress shoes often do not offer proper impact relief and arch supports because of their poorly designed lasts, outsoles, and insoles. Guess what usually happens when men’s dress shoes lack these features? More unhealthy foot problems can occur such as arch pain, heel pain, and ankle pain.
Poorly designed dress shoes can cause a great deal of damage to feet. Keep in mind that the same trendsetters who design women’s high heeled shoes come from the same school of thought as those who design men’s dress shoes that are not orthopedic.
