Are Crocs good for your feet?

Your feet are the foundation of your body and often foot health gets compromised from the kind of footwear that you choose to wear. Crocs are a type of shoe that has been around since 2002. They were originally created for boaters due to their non-slip treads and waterproof qualities. Since then, many styles have been designed for all members of the family and are sold everywhere.

Are Crocs a healthy choice for footwear?

As far as being a shoe healthy for your feet, crocs do provide some great benefits. There is a particular line of the brand called Crocs Rx, which are specifically designed to help with many common foot problems. Aside from being comfortable and offering good arch support, they are wide, which gives plenty of room for feet and toes to move. This is a great advantage if you have problems such as bunions and hammertoes. They have a deep insole that is beneficial if you need to wear custom orthotics. They are also very lightweight and have antibacterial properties that help ward against fungal infections.

If you are in doubt about whether Crocs are good for your feet or foot condition, set up an appointment to speak with Dr. Danciger. He can assess your foot health and advise on the best choice to keep your feet safe and healthy.
