Avoid shoes that have seams over areas of pain, such as a bunion.
Avoid shoes with heavy rubber soles that curl over the top of the toe area (such as seen on some running shoes), because they can catch on carpets and cause an accidental fall.
Flat shoes (with a heel height of one inch or less) are the healthiest shoes for your feet. If you must wear a high heel, keep to a heel height of two inches or less, limit their wear to three hours at a time, and take them off coming to and from an activity.
Laced, rather than slip-on shoes, provide a more secure fit and can better accommodate insoles, orthotic devices, and braces.
Look for soles that are shock absorbing and skid resistant, such as rubber, rather than smooth leather.
Shoes should be made of a soft material that has some give.
My visit to Laurel Foot & Ankle Center was very pleasant. I was taken back into the treatment room as soon as I got there. No wait time at all. All my issues and concerned were addressed and answered right away. I felt like I knew these people all my life. Great office and great service.
I visited Laurel Foot and Ankle Center and was very impressed with the service that I received. The wait time was only 10 minutes. The front desk staff and the doctors were very friendly and professional. My feet feel so much better. I will recommend this Podiatrist Office to my friends and family.

My experience at Laurel Foot & Ankle Center was great. When I arrived the waiting room was packed and I thought to myself: “I will be here all day.” But to my surprise I got put into a room within 8 minutes of me sitting down. They were very fast! I was greeted by a very insightful doctor, Dr. Smith, who knew exactly how to help with my heel problem. I would definitely recommend to anyone with foot problems!
