Flip Flops Ease Knee Pain

Not a surprise to us flip-flop lovers… A study by Rush University Medical Center has found that flip-flops and sneakers with flexible soles are easier on the knees than clogs or even shoes designed for walking. When we walk, the shoes we wear have a significant impact on the load on the knee joints. Compared to supportive shoes that have less flexible soles; flat, flexible footware and even walking barefoot, reduces this load on the knee joints. Excessive pressure on the knees while walking can impact the severity and progression of osteoarthritis.

So kick off your shoes or grab your favorite flip-flops!
