Foot Health And Your Shoes: Choosing The Best Clog for Your Foot - Stegmann Clogs

April 02, 2020 3 min read

Do you suffer from foot pain? You’re not alone. More than 2 million people a year seek treatment for plantar fasciitis, according to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. Of those sufferers, 61 percent said the sharp, burning pain interferes with their daily lives and 54% said it impaired their daily work tasks. 

Stegmann is here to help. 

We recently surveyed 1,000 of our customersand found that many of you relate as sufferers from one or multiple types of foot pain: heel spurs, bunions, neuromas, neuropathy, back pain, high arches and fallen arches. Many of these conditions lead to back pain. 

The good news: Our shoes can help. Arch support, lighter soles, shock absorption, heel support, and ample toe room are a few characteristics that make our shoe design ideal for people suffering from painful foot conditions. 

This is what Doctors and Podiatrists have to say: 

“Wearing support shoes or using inserts to help take pressure off the arch.” - Medical News Today

“Bunion pain is relieved by wearing wider shoes with adequate toe room.”  

American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons 

“The most common treatment is to use a good arch support.”

- Dr. Narmo Ortiz, DPM
