Being a woman is hard, being a fashionable woman yet has painful feet is even harder. I always heard women who came to podiatry clinic with painful feet, and with bad choice of shoes, saying: beauty is the pain. They choose to wear good-looking shoes rather than comfortable shoes, or what they called, granny shoes.
There are occasions or work requirement to wear formal and nice-looking shoes. Well, there are shoes that combined fashion and comfort, and they are orthotics friendly shoes, that you can start taking care of your painful feet.
Ziera Shoes-Where you get what you wanted
The words fashion/ stylish are all unique to us. Each person defines them differently. Ziera shoes offers wide range of women’s shoes that hopefully are your taste. They have styles such as dress shoes/ sandals, casual shoes/ sandals, heels, slippers boots and orthotics friendly shoes.
What is special about their shoes is that they have designed to fit in orthotics, even in high heels (look for the small foot icon at the top right corner). They have removable inserts, providing more space for it. With some shoes, you can choose the width of it (wide or extra wide), an extra bonus for wider feet people.
“From lace-ups to loafers, brogues to ballet flats, Ziera offers the perfect blend of style and comfort for those needing extra supportive footwear or those needing to swap out the Ziera footbed for their custom-made orthotic.

Best shoes to put orthotics-Runners
Most running and walking shoes are able to fit in orthotics. The reason why they are the best shoes to put in your orthotics because they have stable base, that your feet and orthotics will be secure inside the shoes.
Oh…and one more thing
One important trick when buying any shoes is to take the orthotics with you, try the shoes with the orthotics as you might need a size up for your shoes.
If you are buying shoes online, consider if you are going to have orthotics inside the shoes and measure your feet at evening time. These little yet important factors will help you to get the right size of the shoes, please be mindful that wearing smaller size of the shoes might cause problems to your feet.
