There are few things that put you in a gloomy mood faster than foot pain. Whether it’s that dull ache from walking all day, a pesky bunion, or the toe-curling sting of plantar fasciitis, it’s no walk in the park when your dogs are barking. Fortunately, we now live in a world where the same kinds of comfortable, supportive shoes that podiatrists recommend come in super cute styles.
Example: Skechers Fresh Move washable lace-up sneakers, which are on sale now for $64 at QVC. Made for “direct-out-of-the-box comfort,” these kicks have a secret weapon you won’t find in many other fashion-forward shoes: heel-to-toe memory foam. We’re not just talking about the insoles; these beauties even have a padded memory foam heel counter. It’s like your favorite high-end mattress – but instead of protecting your back, it cradles your toes.

Podiatrists are the first to recommend memory foam to anyone who walks a lot or struggles with foot problems. Memory foam insoles are suitable for multiple bony deformities, including bunions, heel spurs and metatarsalgia [when the ball of your foot becomes inflamed], as well as atrophy of the fat pads,” says Dr. Nelya Lobkova, DPM at Step Up Surgical Podiatry in New York City, to Yahoo Life.
But even if you are one of the lucky few who did not have to make an appointment with the podiatrist, the passage of time will eventually catch up with you. “We lose a lot of the fat pad that provides natural cushioning as we age,” says Dr. Lobkova.
A well designed shoe like Skechers Fresh Move washable lace-up sneakers is simply an investment in your long-term health. Even the firmly cushioned heel “helps with proper foot alignment,” she adds.

In fact, the outsole is built with extra rubber where the soles wear out the fastest.
