Hello there 🙂
We are not the ones who disagree with what a Harvard doctor has to say, and that includes recommendations on foot health. In an interview for Shoes news, Casey Kerrigan, MD (who also has her own line of athletic shoes) became poetic about the damage high heels do to her knees (it's bleak), the importance of foot health, and tips for buying shoes. But since the light is finally near at the end of the long winter tunnel, we currently have spring shoes in our brains that Kerrigan also addressed. When asked how to promote spring foot health, she said, "Pedicure. And what's really wonderful is good air pollution. I'm a big proponent of wearing sandals."
Spring sandals may not seem very groundbreaking, but we're happy that, although they're not always the most supportive shoe style, they're good for our feet. Shop some of our most popular breathable spring sandals below.
