The Podiatrist’s Pick: New Balance Shoes for Optimal Foot Health

When it comes to foot health, the right pair of shoes can make a world of difference. With countless brands and styles available, it can be a real challenge to find the perfect fit for your feet. However, one brand that consistently receives recommendations from podiatrists is New Balance. Renowned for their commitment to quality, comfort, and support, New Balance shoes have earned a reputation as a go-to option for individuals seeking optimal foot health. In this article, we will delve into the reasons why podiatrists recommend New Balance shoes and how they can benefit your overall foot health.

  1. Superior Arch Support

One of the primary reasons podiatrists recommend New Balance shoes is their exceptional arch support. Proper arch support is vital for maintaining the natural alignment of the foot and preventing issues like overpronation (inward rolling of the foot) or supination (outward rolling of the foot). New Balance incorporates advanced technologies, such as their ENCAP system, which provides targeted support to the arch and promotes a more stable gait. At Lucky Shoes, we offer the 1540v3, which features the ENCAP midsole. By wearing shoes with optimal arch support, you can alleviate strain on your feet, ankles, and knees, reducing the risk of injury and enhancing overall comfort.

  1. Cushioning and Shock Absorption

Another key feature of New Balance shoes that podiatrists love is their superior cushioning and shock absorption capabilities. The shoes are designed with innovative midsole technologies such as the Fresh Foam X and FuelCell, which offer responsive and plush cushioning. At Lucky Shoes, we offer the 1080v12, which features the Fresh Foam X technology that is made from 3% biobased content. Lucky Shoes also values the FuelCell technology, carrying the 990v6. This cushioning not only enhances comfort during walking or running, but it helps absorb impact forces, reducing the strain on your joints. By minimizing the stress on your feet, New Balance shoes can help prevent common foot problems such as shin splints or plantar fasciitis.

  1. Customizable Fit and Width Options

Every foot is unique, and finding the right shoe size and width can be crucial for optimal comfort. New Balance at Lucky Shoes understands this diversity and offers an extensive range of sizes and width options, including wide and extra-wide widths. This variety ensures that people with different foot shapes and sizes can find a shoe at Lucky Shoes that fits them properly. This also allows for a more customizable fit, reducing the risk of discomfort, blisters, and other foot-related issues.

  1. Enhanced Stability and Motion Control

For individuals with conditions such as flat feet or excessive pronation, Lucky Shoes carries New Balance styles, such as the 928v3, that have motion control features that are highly recommended by podiatrists. Shoes like these are specifically designed to provide stability and control excessive inward rolling of the foot. They feature medial posts, like in the 860v13, or roll bars that guide the foot into a more neutral alignment, reducing strain on the arches and preventing overpronation-related injuries. By providing proper foot mechanics, New Balance shoes with motion control features can help individuals maintain and more balanced gait and alleviate discomfort associated with faulty foot positioning.

By wearing shoes that are specifically designed to cater to the needs of your feet, you can reduce the risk of foot-related issues and enhance your overall comfort.
