Spenco Total Support Sandal receives good response

Spenco Medical Corporation, one of the world's leading footcare brands, announced the general availability of the PolySorb Total Support Sandal for both men and women. First introduced in January, the sandal has proven to be a hit with early adopters as it marks the first time that the doctor-recommended contours of the Spenco Total Support insole has been developed into a supportive, stylish, slip-on sandal.

“The Spenco Total Support Sandal is the most comfortable, supportive, orthotic sandal on the market today,” says Gene Ulishney, C.Ped, a certified pedorthist with more than 30 years experience in the footwear industry. The sandals were awarded the American Podiatric Medical Association's (APMA) Seal of Acceptance earlier this year.

The introduction of the Spenco Total Support Sandal comes at time when many are ready to trade in their supportive shoes for lighter footwear. However, research suggests that consumers should still consider selecting footwear that provides appropriate cushioning and support. Studies have shown that wearing flimsy, unsupported flip flops affect how people walk and can lead to serious overuse injuries such as tendonitis, or lower leg, knee, hip and back problems.

“Just because you want to wear a casual footwear this summer, doesn't mean that your feet have to suffer,” said Dusty Williamson, Spenco Marketing Manager. “We've been thrilled with the initial response to the Total Support sandals. There is a real need for an affordable, well built sandal that helps keep feet healthy and happy.”

Last fall, researchers found that women who make poor shoe choices early in life, by wearing unsupportive footwear, are much more likely to suffer foot pain later on in life. The study, published in the Arthritis Care & Research Journal followed 3,378 members of the Framingham Foot Study between 2002 and 2008 found that women who wore good shoes in the past were 67% less likely to report foot pain.
