Lace-up shoes are the best and safest shoes for your feet. Flat shoes put too much strain on the Achilles tendon, and high heels can lead to back problems. Slip-on shoes cause the toes to dig in and bend, which can lead to hammertoes and calluses. Lace-up shoes, however, support the foot by helping to hold it in place.*
Be sure to use all of the lace holes on a shoe, including those extra holes commonly found at the top of athletic shoes. Using those extra holes will help secure your ankle and anchor your foot even more.
