1 Shoe & 6 Sandals that Won’t Hurt Feet [Shopping Guide]


Our office continues to be open to all new and existing patients. We use hospital-grade sanitizers and are taking measures to ensure patients maintain social distancing by not having anyone wait in our reception room with others. If you prefer to wait in your car, just give us a call and we will call or text you when we are ready to bring you straight into a treatment room. Our entire staff is wearing masks and we encourage you to do the same.

For those patients who cannot or still wish not to visit the office, we are offering private video telemedicine visits. Simply call the office at 713-785-7881 and ask for an e-visit and we will be happy to get you set up for an immediate appointment. You can also request an appointment through our website.

The Merrel sandal is one of several stylish and supportive shoes in our summer shopping guide!Summer is almost over, but there’s still time to make sure that your footwear is stylish and supportive so you don’t have to worry about foot pain this season.

My number one-work shoe recommendation (if you can’t do flats or sneakers) is the kitten heel: it offers a little bit of height without placing your feet at the kind of odd angle that throws off balance and places excess pressure on your toes and the balls of your feet.
