Foot problems can occur due to a variety of reasons, including foot deformities, medical conditions, injuries, poorly designed shoes, or age. You are at higher risk of developing foot problems in the presence of any of the following factors:
- Frequent wearing of poorly fitted shoes
- Neuropathy (loss of sensation) in the feet and ankles
- Bunions or hammertoes
- Flat feet or highly arched feet
Making healthy choices for your feet, much like eating a nutritious diet or getting regular exercise, can add up to big improvements in quality of life, says Marian Hannan, associate professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School. “People should start thinking of their shoes as a factor they can modify to help minimize pain and maximize their ability to get out and do things.”
Wearing proper shoes can often help improve or reduce the symptoms associated with various foot ailments.
To help alleviate foot pain and enhance comfort in sensitive feet Orthofeet has been using its expertise in foot biomechanics to design unique footwear with innovative orthopedic features.
Here are the features that differentiate Orthofeet and makes it the healthiest and most comfortable shoe in the industry:
Innovative Ortho-Cushion TM System
DTF’S Ortho-Cushion TM is engineered with unique comfort features:
– Contoured orthotic insole with anatomical arch support.
– Cushioning pad under the heel.
– Ergonomic sole with air cushioning.
– Softens every step you take.
– Reduces pressure under the heel and ball of the foot pain.
– Adds spring to your step.
– Works wonders to alleviate heel pain & plantar fasciitis.
Protective Interior Lining
DTF shoe interior is uniquely made of soft fabric with extra foam padding and seamless design in the forefoot. The smooth and soft design offers the gentlest interface with the foot and provides superior comfort and protection.
Recommendation: Avoid shoes that are using leather for the interior lining with seams in the forefoot, which can be rough on the foot, and may cause irritation and discomfort.
Non-Binding Upper Construction
The uppers of DTF are designed without overlays in the bunions area, and soft across the entire shoe, including the toe box area, offering superior comfort and protection.
Recommendation: Avoid shoes that are designed with overlays in the bunions area, which might be uncomfortable, and even harmful to sensitive feet.
Extra Depth Design
– Offers a loose, comfortable fit
– Eliminates pressure points on the foot
– Offers extra room for toe movement and pressure relief for Bunions and Hammer-Toes.
DTF is offering a variety of shoes, including Fisherman sandals that feature stretchable uppers, which allow the shoe to form to the contours of the foot, and ease pressure on sensitive areas.
Tie-Less Lacing System
Innovative lacing system that combines laces and straps on both sides of the shoe eliminates the need for lacing up, and enables fastening and unfastening on both sides of the shoe.
Two-Way Strap System
A strap system with Hook and Loop elements on both sides of the shoe allows fastening & unfastening on both sides of the shoe, as well as the adjustment of the length of the strap.
Two extra removable sets of spacers (1/16” and 1/8”) are available with every pair of shoes, allowing to adjust the space inside the shoe for a perfect fit.
