What To Look For In Shoes That Help Prevent Falls
Wearing the right kind of footwear can be essential in helping to prevent slips and falls. Loose-fitting slippers, backless shoes, high heels, and slick shoes should all be avoided if you’re seeking supportive, footwear that will keep you stable on your feet. There are some important characteristics to look for in your footwear, including proper fit, non-skid soles and comfort with adequate arch support & stability.
Properly Fitting Footwear
When your footwear is the wrong size or width for your foot type, you are more likely to slip and fall. You want to be sure that your footwear has an adjustable fit so you can be sure to give your feet the support they need. Shoes that tie with laces and/or Velcro are a good choice, as they allow you to tighten the fit to your liking.
Be sure to get your feet measured every year to ensure you are wearing properly fitted shoes. Our “Proper Technique Procedure” will guarantee the proper fit for both width and size, and with our Heat Moldable Customized Inserts will be the best orthotics for your foot needs. If your feet grow and change with age, be sure to throw out old footwear that no longer fits properly.
Shoes with rubber, non-slip soles are ideal for those who are prone to slips and falls. While EVA mid soles are lightweight and provide great cushioning, a shoe with a rubber out sole will be ideal and help to prevent falls in a variety of weather conditions.

Arch Support & Stability
Arch support & stability are crucial in a good shoe. Proper arch support helps to keep the body balanced and helps to encourage proper movement. Orthotics can also be a great way to properly support the foot and encourage balance.
