Doussprt slip-on shoes
“Stability, or ‘support,’ is probably the most important quality of a sneaker or any other shoe that someone will wear to stand for more than a few minutes at a stretch,” Richard H. Graves, DPM, of Sol Foot & Ankle Centers in Longwood, California, tells Yahoo Life in support of these shoes. “By making the foot stable, the joints of the foot are better aligned and the muscles, tendons, and ligaments don’t have to work as hard. A good shoe will do a lot of that work.
