What Are the Best Slippers with Arch Support?
While any pair of plush slippers can leave your feet feeling cozy, this comfort may be short lived without arch support. Morning foot pain or sore, achy feet after a long day away from home can quickly be resolved with a pair of arch support slippers.
Wearing slippers with arch support, sometimes called orthotic or orthopedic slippers, provides a comprehensive approach to eliminating foot pain. From everyday shoes to house slippers, adequate support protects your feet from painful conditions like plantar fasciitis.
By understanding how arch support slippers relieve foot pain and why you should wear them, you can give your feet the care, comfort, and support they deserve.
What Are Arch Support Slippers?
Arch support slippers have an increased arch along the middle of your foot from a built-in insole or a removeable insole, like PowerStep® ArchWear™ slippers. Shoes and house slippers with arch support help maintain healthy alignment of the feet which can improve posture and reduce pain.
Orthotic slippers blend support with cushioning to help absorb shock while soft, cozy materials keep feet warm and comforted. Most slippers lack arch support and instead emphasize comfort, but wearing a flat pair of slippers can be just as harmful as going barefoot especially if you have pre-existing foot pain.
The Importance of Arch Support
PowerStep orthotics are all about the arch, because the right support can do even more than prevent and relieve pain. Your foot arch is made of ligaments and tendons connecting your heel to your toes. When the arch becomes weak or injured due to overuse, it can cause pain that interrupts your daily life.
Arch support from both orthotic insoles and shoes like slippers holds these ligaments, tendons and bones up and distributes pressure evenly across the foot. This helps correct issues like overpronation, provides shock absorption, increases mobility, and relieves pain and fatigue.
Changing out of your everyday shoes into a pair of unsupportive slippers can do more harm than good. Some people, like those with flat feet, require more support and stability to stave off pain. If you want to get rid of your foot pain or simply experience a new level of comfort, supportive slippers are a must.
Why Podiatrists Recommend Orthopedic Slippers
According to podiatrists, wearing arch support slippers protects your feet from pain or discomfort in the long term. By limiting the time spent on bare feet, you can slow down fat pad atrophy, prevent injuries, and relieve joint pain as well as knee, hip and back pain. Everyone can benefit from wearing slippers with arch support, and you don’t need a prescription to get the best orthopedic slippers.
PowerStep is the #1 podiatrist recommended brand of insoles for preventing and relieving pain from conditions like plantar fasciitis. Our arch support slippers have the same trusted support as our orthotic insoles, delivering the relief you need with the comfort you desire.
