Men, listen up! Feet were designed to walk on soft, natural elements like soil and sand, not the hard, flat man-made surfaces that make up so much of our modern world – especially in the workplace. If you over-pronate – meaning your ankles roll in – when you stand or walk, you are at greater risk for developing major foot complications, most notably heel pain, or plantar fasciitis. This misalignment can travel up your body to your knees, hips and even your lower back. The biggest cause of over-pronation is not wearing shoes with arch support. That’s why it’s so important, not just to wear the comfortable dress shoes for men, but to wear orthopedic shoes, especially in places where you’re standing or walking for long periods of time, such as at work.
Here’s what to look for in comfortable men’s dress shoes with arch support:
- Firm yet flexible midsole – Allows your foot to move naturally while still providing reliable balance.
- Deep heel cup – Your heel is held in place with a contoured heel cup for stability as you walk.
- Biomechanical footbed – Our podiatrist-engineered footbed hugs the curves of your foot for all-day arch support.
