Don't Let Standing Get You Down: The Best Shoes for Walking on Hard Surfaces

We’ve all heard the song, “The foot bone’s connected to the leg bone. The leg bone’s connected to the knee bone…” And it’s true! The study of biomechanics has proven that everything is interconnected, and when there’s a misalignment in one part of the body, it can travel up your body and affect other areas. What causes this misalignment? Prolonged periods of standing or walking on concrete can cause the foot to over-pronate, resulting in the ankle rolling inwards and the arch collapsing.
