6 types of shoes that can do too much damage to your body


The average person travels 245-292 kilometers a year. That’s why it’s crucial to find a perfect pair of shoes that will not hurt your feet. Being fashionable is cool, but being healthy is a lot cooler.

At Bright Side, we found that there are 6 types of shoes that hurt your body.

Pointed shoes may be too tight.

Wide feet will not feel happy with pointed shoes. They are too tight and will put a lot of pressure on your toes. Nobody wants to be in a hurry, and that certainly includes your feet too. This can lead to things like nerve pains and blisters. Before buying a pair of pointy shoes, check to see if your feet are completely comfortable.

Flip flops cause severe misalignment of the ankles.

Flip flops look perfect for summer and the beach. But let’s look at them better and see if it’s true. First of all, you can not really say that they are comfortable because they rub between the toes and cause skin lesions. Secondly, wearing them can lead to misalignment of the ankles and knees because your feet are not properly supported.

Plus, when you walk, your feet can feel tired faster and it is very difficult to run in flip flops.

High heels can cause nerve damage

Yes, women love high heels because they look great and are attractive, but the damage can be bigger than you think. Wearing high heels often leads to sprains, ingrown toenails, nerve damage and lower back pain.

To get rid of these problems, it is advisable to make sure that your daily heels do not exceed 3 inches. And remember that you can always change your shoes at the office, if you can not spend a day without more legs.

Flat shoes exert pressure on the plantar fascia.

This may seem surprising, but flat shoes can also damage your legs. This is because they have no plantar support exerting pressure on the plantar fascia. As a result, you experience knee and back pain.

But it is not necessary to get rid of your flat shoes. You can simply buy orthopedic orthoses that will fix the position of your feet.

Running shoes too light and too soft that can cause trauma.

It is true! Let’s wear our running shoes only when we run. If you wear them everyday because they are very comfortable and lightweight, they can damage your feet because they are too soft and supple.

Do not stress your plantar fascia and instead choose a better option for each day. Hard-bottomed sports shoes are much safer, for example.

The soles compensate for the walking mechanism

Wedge shoes are not flexible and have rigid footrests. Our legs need more tolerant footwear because our feet must be able to bend in a certain way. The shoes must repeat and strengthen the movement of the feet. They actually act in the opposite direction, going totally against the mechanism of walking. It is best not to wear platforms very often.
