    I never really thought that the shoes I wore could do damage to my feet or legs. I try to get shoes with arch support because I have a high arch, but other than that I didn’t really care what kind of shoes I wore. Thanks for making me aware of what could happen if I’m not careful about my footwear.

    Choosing the right footwear is immensely important! I’m currently looking for shoes that will help with my bunion issues. Isn’t there some gel that you can put in your shoes that help your joints and bunions? That’s definitely what I need to look into.
