Top 8 Worst Shoes for your Feet

Many people from Utah to New York suffer from foot, knee or lower back pain. What many people do not know, however, is that much of this pain can be traced to the type of shoe on your foot. Shoes have a lot to do with pain in the body because of the various types of support they offer. Many land at the foot doctor because they are wearing the wrong type of shoe.


While most women are wearing these for style not comfort, many don’t realize that they can cause serious foot problems and pain. High-heels can cause bunions, stretched Achilles tendons and other problems that could land you at the foot doctor.

Ballet Flats

These shoes have almost no support and can cause strain on the foot, as they don’t have any straps to secure it on the foot.

Platform Heels

In terms of heels, platforms are better for your feet than most. But, the increase in height causes ankle instability that could land you in the foot doctor with a broken ankle.

Comfy Sheepskin Boots

Although these shoes are comfortable and warm, these shoes can cause issues. Many people wear these without socks, causing fungus build up in the shoe.


Flip-flops are great for keeping your piggies cool in the summer. But, their lack of support is horrible for your feet and ankles and can cause serious pain if worn for long periods of time.

Worn Out Shoes

So many from Utah to Florida are guilty of wearing shoes that are old and worn out. Support in the shoe wears out and can accentuate any pain or problems you may have.

Thigh-High Boots

These boots are often tight and constrict a large portion of the leg. This can cause leg issues, such as nerve damage in the knee and leg.

Pointy Toed Shoes

These shoes constrict the toes and can cause a lot of foot pain. The wearer can get painful bunions, ingrown toenails, as well as secure some painful nerve damage in the toes from being constricted.
