Additional information for reference:
Orthopaedic footwear - Orthopedic shoes are
specially-designed footwear to relieve discomfort associated with many
foot and ankle disorders, such as blisters, bunions, calluses and corns,
hammer toes, plantar fasciitis, or heel spurs. They may also be worn by
individuals with diabetes or people with unequal leg length. These shoes
typically have a low heel, tend to be wide with a particularly wide toe
box, and have a firm heel to provide extra support. Some may also have a
removable insole, or orthotic, to provide extra arch support.
Rocker bottom shoe - A rocker sole shoe or rocker
bottom shoe is a shoe which has a thicker-than-normal sole with rounded
heel. Such shoes ensure the wearer does not have flat footing along the
proximal-distal axis of the foot. The shoes are generically known by a
variety of names including round bottom shoes, round/ed sole shoes, and
toning shoes, and also by various brand names. Rocker soles may replace
regular soles on any style of footwear. Some rocker bottom shoes are
purpose built to reduce the function or replace the lost function of a
joint. For example, a person with a hallux rigidus (stiff big toe) may
use a rocker bottom shoe to replace the flexion lost at the metatarsal
joint. Rocker bottom shoes are also used to compensate for the lost
range of motion, however caused, at the tibiotalar joint (ankle joint).
In such cases, the wearer maintains solid and stable footing while
standing, but the rock of the heel assists with the propulsive phase of
gait, making walking more natural and less painful to the affected
joints. If selecting these shoes with the hopes of some sort of medical
benefit, Apparel Search strongly suggests that you first consult with
your physician to make sure it is appropriate.
