As the weather turns warmer, many people enjoy wearing “flip-flops” or sandals. It’s important to choose a sandal with good arch support, especially if you have flat feet or bunions, or a history of problems such as plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, or Achilles tendonitis. It’s also wise to choose a sandal with a thick toe area if you have stiffness or pain in your big toe joint, or have hammertoes or toes that aren’t straight.
