Celebs are no exception to foot problems when pregnant

Posted on May 02, 2013

We love to people watch, and these days pregnant celebs like Kate Middleton and Kim Kardashian put their foot health on the back burner for fashion.  Due to pregnancy hormones that loosen all ligaments, the ligaments in the feet can cause your shoe size to increase a half or whole shoe size.  When ligaments in the foot and ankle loosen, this decreased stability making wearing heels riskier.  The increase in weight may also cause increased heel pain, or plantar fasciitis, to occur.  But these problems don't get in the way of pregnant celebs who are a slave to fashion! Look for a supportive shoe with a little heel, approximately 1 inch or so, never completely flat.  And flip flops may be tempting, but they offer no support.  Instead, opt for our Spenco recovery sandals.  Use an arch support if your shoe such as Powersteps.  All these options will keep your feet pain free, and you don't have to be a celebrity to experience that.
