Shoes: rigidity, stability, and elevation
During the treatment period, it is important to put aside shoes that do not provide support for your arch. Sandals, ballet flats, Converse, and minimalist shoes are a few examples.
Prioritize a good sports shoe with a rigid sole in which you feel supported
and stable. To make a good choice of shoe, visualize a hiking shoe. The goal here is to add stability to your foot during the healing time. Try to twist your shoe, if you can wiggle it all over the place, chances are it isn't stiff enough.
Rise of approximately ¼ inch ("Drop" of 12mm).
