If ball of foot pain is causing your feet to ache, there are self-treatment options, such as wearing the best flip flops for arch support, that can help reduce the pain. While we don’t recommend flip flops as treatment, we do know that when the arches are firmly supported, the pressure on your feet is reduced.
The best flip flops for ball of foot pain we recommended are the Orthaheel Sandals. Our friends from everywhere from Orange County to Miami tell us they love wearing the Wave Orthotic Flip Flops. These sandals stabilize and realign the feet into their natural position. This means that when the feet are correctly aligned, other aches and pains also may also reduce, such as hip, back, or knee pain.
Another recommendation that is just is important for reducing ball of foot pain is to wear shoes that fit your feet correctly. It is amazing how helpful a supportive shoe is to correct many foot problems. A shoe specialist can help you decide if you have the right fit based on our recommended shoe list. If you prefer to continue wearing your current shoes, try inserting a medical-grade orthotic, such as the Powerstep Full Length Arch Support inside your shoe. This unique system can correct the level of cushioning so that your feet are properly supported.
