Since we hear that very high heels are bad for our feet, we think that the other extreme, ballet flats, must be perfect. However, this is not the case, and there are some aspects of flats that you should be aware of. In general, ballet flats lack support in the arch that is needed, especially to prevent tendinitis or plantar fasciitis. One way to remedy this is to apply an arch support in the shoe, such as our Medical Grade Inserts. As the full length are made for athletic or lace up shoes, these inserts come in 3/4 length that are perfect for all types of flats and they can convert those ballet flats into a shoe with support that you will able to wear to prevent injury. If you see our staff or our doctors in flats, you will also see the Medical Grade Inserts in aiding our own two feet. So for a solution to those uncomfortable ballet flats, visit us at Prairie Path Foot and Ankle Clinic and speak to our front desk staff and they can make an appointment for you to be evaluated, or if you want to try the Medical Grade Inserts they are available at all times without an appointment.
