What is the ideal shoe?
One of the most common questions I am asked is "what shoes do you recommend". Well, here's a whistle-stop tour...
Wide Feet / Bunions
As far as bunions go, footwear is key; wearing footwear for function is important so that you do not stress the big toe joint. With this in mind, the best shoe for walking any distance in is one with a slight rocker sole.
I really recommend Hoka One One trainers. They have a slight rocker built into the sole (not visible) and are incredibly cushioned; brilliant for shock absorbency and general comfort.
ShoeMed is a good online shop, and they also have high street stores. You can have an online consultation to determine the best shoe for you but, again, something with a bit of a rocker such as Joya. If you do purchase something from ShoeMed, use the discount code Felic10 for 10% off.
Skechers have an inbuilt rocker (and are cheaper than other brands).
