Metatarsalgia, otherwise known as ball of foot pain, is a very painful condition which can lead to the inflammation of the ball of your foot. This is going to make it very painful to walk and so it’s important to find ways to address the pain and live your life as normally as possible. Thankfully, there are plenty of ways that you can help yourself if you have metatarsalgia. One of these ways is finding some comfortable shoes to wear during the day. Of course, because the condition swells the foot, a comfortable shoe isn’t always easy to find, but fingers crossed, the list below will help you when you are looking for a pair of shoes to help you with your pain.

When you are shopping for new shoes, we urge you to try on more than one pair. There are plenty of shoes available to people that have conditions such as metatarsalgia and plenty of styles. By trying more than one pair on before choosing a pair, it will give you an idea of the shoes available and the comfort each shoe can bring. As our feet are all very different, what works for someone else, may not work for you. Do take recommendations on board, but always do your own research into the best shoes for your metatarsalgia as well.
