If you have ever been stuck between choosing your pretty pair of sandals that hurt just a little and that one pair of orthotic friendly sneakers then we have news for you:
You don’t have to compromise on style for comfort!
Orthotics have been used as a treatment for foot pain and to improve comfort for centuries now, so it only seems fair that shoe companies evolve to incorporate them into their designs. We love digging through our shoes to find the perfect pair for every outfit, and there’s no reason that we should have to say no to the combo of our dreams just because they don’t cater to our orthopedic needs.
With Summer on the horizon and the temperature gauge getting higher and higher every day, we are definitely starting to reach for sandals. The breathable open design of sandals allows your feet to stay cool even as the temperature begins to skyrocket! As this happens, we hear far too often complaints from orthotic-wearers that they wear sandals without their required support, because they’ve never found a style to suit them. So, we decided to make a handy list of our 5 favourite orthotic sandals to wear this Summer, all designed to incorporate a removable sole to allow for your personalised orthotics:
Naot - Lamego in Black
Naot’s Lamego sandals are elegant and simple, making them the perfect shoe for any outfit. The buckle detailing adds style while the leather straps help to keep your foot comfortable and secure when wearing them all day. The slight heel works to elevate you off the ground without compromising on comfort. The Lamego orthotic friendly sandals are going to be the first shoes you reach for all Summer long!
We love the way that Zanzibar drips elegance with a brilliant structure designed to optimise your comfort and support. Revere’s Zanzibar subtly incorporates three velcro adjusting points to ensure your perfect fit and similarly boasts a removable innersole to provide the ultimate customised fit for any foot! The metallic colouring elevates the shoe in a unique and clever way, allowing it to pair with any outfit, and even making it the perfect option for an event later in the evening. Got a hot date? Throw on your Zanzibar’s!
Ziera’s Beaux is a stunning wedge sandal that is perfect for those long days on your feet. The adjustable velcro closure allows for the sandal to be adjusted to your perfect fit adding that extra touch of personalised comfort that even sandals that don’t cater to orthotics often miss out on. Beaux’s elegant white wedge heel adds height and stability to the sandal, elevating your outfit and giving just enough emphasis to an elongated leg. The colouring of this orthotic friendly Beaux screams summer, with the deep tan blending in beautifully with the white wedge and gold finishes. We can’t get enough of this style!
Klouds – Abbey in Black Swirl
The stunning Abbey by Klouds combines comfort and elegance together to form the ultimate foot and trend friendly shoe. With subtle cross-straps to mould over your foot and featuring velcro fastening for that perfect fit, this sandal will keep your foot stable and secure all day long. The added bonus of a removable innersole allows this sandal to cater to a variety of foot types, including your orthotic-needing self. We also are obsessed with the way that Abbey’s rubber sole acts as a shock absorb to protect your joints with a slight heel to add a touch of elevation and lift your foot off the ground. We love this black swirl design, it’s unique and perfect for a night event or a subtle addition to a bright and colourful outfit.
The Naot Tatina is a cheeky and sexy orthotic friendly sandal that will keep you stylish and on-trend this summer. With two velcro closures, this sandal is easy to be slipped on and worn, making it the perfect everyday shoe for throwing on as you walk out the door. We love how the sleek white wedge heel on the Tatina adds the perfect amount of height to keep this shoe comfortable while elevating your entire outfit and bringing a touch of elegance to it.
We can’t emphasise enough that you do NOT have to compromise on style just to be comfortable. There are so many options for you, from orthotic friendly sandals to orthotic friendly sneakers, don’t give up hope. Start shopping now, you might just find your new fave sandals to wear in to 2021.
