Foot and ankle specialist Denver, Colorado? Stretch the soles of your feet – Get a round object like a plastic bottle or tin can and place it beneath the arch of your foot. Use the circular shape to roll your foot forwards and backwards to stretch the muscles and release any tension. Flex and wriggle – Ideal for sitting on the couch and takes only two to three minutes. Raise your feet into the air and flex your feet, draw circles and wriggle your toes. Toe grip – This is a fun little exercise. Get a tablecloth or your sock and place it on the floor in front of you. Use your toes to pick it up and hold it in the air for 15 seconds. Drop it and do the same with your other foot. This strengthens your muscles and helps to improve your balance.
With a normal closed shoe with arch support, your foot naturally steps from heel to toe, rolling along the ball of your foot. But because flip-flops don’t have that arch support, you just step flat, hitting the ball of your foot hard, says Dr. Ramsey-Parker. “When you hit something long enough walking, it becomes irritated,” she says. You’ll feel pain and maybe experience a bit of swelling from an injury called metatarsalgia, but it will go down if you switch to more supportive shoes.
Insoles are an important component to foot health as most footwear choices out there have zero arch support. Proper insoles help to support the arches, provide shock absorption, help with proper alignment and help to take some of the stress off of the feet. But not all insoles are the same. They vary in stiffness and cushioning, arch height and some are just too big and bulky to fit in most shoes. Solelytics has partnered with a unique insole vendor that offers the consumer a 100% custom molded insole at an affordable price and in under 10 minutes.

Most running shoes come with a shape built around a last, but did you know most running shoes don’t come with any arch support? That’s where Solelytics comes into play. Each insole is shaped to your individual feet, giving you support built around the way you run. Your feet, your stride, your goals. That is what 100% custom fitting is all about. Simply remove the thin layer of padding from your running shoe and replace it with your custom insole. You’ll feel the difference right away. Take a little time to get used to your new insoles, and then it’s off to your training program of choice. Whether you run for fitness or run for sport, Solelytics is there to support you along your journey.
