Are you looking for some good shoes to do your daily activities or even your training? After many researches of human movement behaviors and the correlation with human health, scientists are sharing the healthy shoes footwear. In this article after uncovering science, we present the list of the most comfortable and healthy shoes to wear.|

Wearing uncomfortable shoes put pressure on the back and spine, our legs and ankles leading to back pain in short term. It does affect body movement by forcing us to make more moves to compensate the lack of support. Have you ever felt like your legs swollen? It is a cause of low blood circulation in legs due to bad shoes.

Researchers from Harvard University and the University of Australia found that the most suitable shoes have a sole flexible enough and in terms of size is a low size sole, so that the foot muscles can work and gain strength. Barefoot shoes are ideal to avoid knee pain, lower back damage and the "flat feet" according to this article.

This is the reason a movement of people has been acquiring shoes like the sport shoes barefoot for their daily activities. They have a flexible sole and adjust easily to the feet. There are so many patterns, colors and styles suitable for any activity like sports and normal everyday tasks. We love the designs and how they are so comfortable.

When we talk about footwear, high heels are often a topic because women usually have narrow, pointed, high-heeled shoes at their disposal.

According to a human movement researcher at the University of the Netherlands, high heels are at the root of back pain that results in the curvature of the inside back. As for men, shoes tend to be more comfortable, but you should be careful with steel-toed shoes and use more breathable ones.

Specialists advise the harm of using the same type of footwear every day. We should vary our footwear by introducing more shoes with low heels and thin flexible sole. Flexible sole shoes are the most recommended by researchers, but should not be worn on all occasions because of risk of injury as referred. The key word is to vary your footwear by opting for low-soled and flexible shoes more often.

We know inherently when we wear some kind of shoes that are not so comfortable and we try to tolerate the pain by using them in some occasions. If you do this, be more attentive and recognize that something does not feel okay to your feet. If you are not comfortable, you are not doing yourself any good.

Our feet are our friends and support us everywhere. Be also friends with your feet.
