When I think of professions that require long hours of standing I can’t help but think of teachers. Hair stylists and makeup artists also come to mind. I happen to know a few hair stylists, makeup artists and teachers who have all complained about their feet bothering them at work. The culprit is usually their choice of shoes because they tend to go for looks over comfort. Well, I’ve got the perfect solution for your tired, achy feet, ladies. The Orthaheel Women’s Mary Jane Shoes are both great looking and comfortable and in my opinion, the best shoes for teachers.
Update 7/30/17 – These exact shoes are no longer in-stock, but I have found a similar pair here, which I have also linked throughout the article.
About Orthaheel’s Melanie Mary Janes
These shoes are built with podiatrist-designed support to help relieve heel pain! What more could you ask for in a shoe?
Just like the tires on a car, improper alignment of feet can cause wear and tear to other parts of the body… such as the knees, hips and lower back. That’s why leading Australian podiatrist Phillip Vasyli invented the Orthaheel technology that’s in this Mary Jane—to help provide heel pain relief while improving your body alignment, posture and walking gait. The ingenuity is in the Tri-Planar Motion Control system. It features a removable orthotic insole, which helps reclaim your foot’s natural alignment with contoured arch support and a deep heel cup, allowing your feet, ankles and legs to function properly. Elastic instep straps add a contrast color pop and a touch of stretch to the synthetic upper. Orthotic-Friendly.
- Podiatrist-designed, removable orthotic insole with a deep heel cup and raised arch support helps realign your foot and ankle to a natural position.
- Durable, textured rubber outsole helps keep you confident on your feet with sure-footed traction.
- EVA midsole provides lightweight cushioning to soften your steps.
