Heel spur shoes - a myth?
Let's put it this way: the only true shoe designed exclusively for heel spurs does not exist. So what should it look like and what can you expect from it?
Unlike hallux valgus or hallux rigidus, the problem lies inside the foot. This means that there is little you can do about it from the outside. Because a shoe, despite all its functionality, can neither reduce or completely eliminate the problem.
But: On the other hand, there are definitely the right shoes that can help relieve the pain and improve the symptoms of a heel spur. That would be space for a suitable heel spur insole, absolute wearing comfort, 100% freedom for your toes and good support in the heel. In this way, the shoe, which we only call a heel spur shoe with reservations, can support your foot in such a way that your painful heel is relieved.
Profilaxe or relief - heel spur shoes should be able to do both!
With the right heel spur shoes, you can definitely take the precaution of preventing it from getting to this point in the first place, which would be the best form of profileaxe for healthy feet.
If it has already come to this and you already have pain in the heel area, then the right heel spur shoe can relieve your foot and prevent the inflammation around the heel spur from getting worse and thus the pain from getting worse. It is important to remedy this and not to continue to press your feet into the wrong shoes, which increases the wear and tear and thus worsen the heel spur.
