Work footwear receives APMA's Seal of Acceptance

The average American's foot pain often gets in the way of daily activities. Perhaps no group suffers from chronic foot pain more than those who are constantly on their feet. According to the American Podiatric Medical Association's (APMA) 2009 foot ailments survey, 44 percent of respondents spend between at least four hours standing every day. Additionally, nearly 78 percent of Americans have experienced foot problems as a result of wearing uncomfortable or ill-fitting shoes.

"The excess strain put on the legs and feet of those standing for long periods of time can take a massive toll on the body--especially for those working in the health care community," said APMA President Ronald Jensen, DPM. "Without the proper footwear that provides necessary support to the ligaments and joints of the feet, these individuals are subject to a host of ailments that can lead to chronic problems such as Metatarsalgia--a pain and inflammation in the ball of the foot."

Excessive standing and walking on hard surfaces like concrete can also increase the incidence of foot problems. However, many footwear companies create products that are specifically made for those who "work standing up." The following footwear products, designed specifically for those who make a living on their feet, have been granted APMA's Seal of Acceptance. The Seal of Acceptance Program recognizes products which have been found beneficial to foot health and of significant value when used in a consistently applied program of daily foot care and regular professional treatment:

Crocs Work Shoes. The familiar, comfortable feel of Crocs is also available in a professional-looking shoe that conforms to workplace standards. Featuring a closed toe and heel design, as well as arch support and a foot bed that promotes circulation, the Crocs Work Shoe is a top choice for many health and service industry professionals across the country.

Dansko's Acadia and Stapled Collections. Dansko's new Acadia collection (pictured at right) features distressed leather uppers, a removable triple density molded EVA insole and slip resistant out-sole. With a lightweight base and lower profile, this collection is perfect for the active woman. Additionally, the company's Stapled Collection features a rigid construction and key features that promote good foot health, including a rocker bottom and full arch support.

The Timberland Company - Timberland PRO. Timberland's PRO Renova series of work footwear--which includes the Professional, Provider, and Caregiver (pictured)--is designed specifically for those at work in the health care community. The Professional Series features Timberland PRO Anti-Fatigue technology, a rocker profile, and an anatomically shaped oblique last for all-day comfort.
