    • Cushioning
    • Low, broad heels for better support and stability
    • Latex rubber soles for better flexibility and comfort
  • Flat shoe, wide in the toe box
  • Heels no higher than 2"
  • Size – don’t wear shoes that are too small for your feet can cause bunions (e.g., swelling at big toe joint)

Smelly shoes:

  • Cut off the leg portion of panty hose
