Comfy, Cozy and Chic: 6 Stylish Orthopedic Shoes to Wear During the Holidays
Between the cold temperatures and inclement weather, winter is really tough on your feet. It may seem like an impossible quest to find shoes that keep your feet warm, offer the support you need and still look fashionable enough for holiday parties. But don’t give up yet because we’ve done the work for you and rounded up some of the most stylish orthopedic shoes on the market that are perfect for the winter months.
If you’re searching for a more casual winter bootie without a heel, look no further than suede shoes from Dr. Comfort. The large toe box gives you plenty of room to move while offering protection, and a firm heel counter provides extra lateral and medial support. The insoles are removable, so you can swap them out for your own custom orthotics if you want. However, the factory insole itself is very supportive, combining a cushy polyurethane layer with gel pods in the heel and forefoot and polyethylene cushioning. The shoe also comes in medium, wide and extra wide widths for superior comfort.
Ladies aren’t the only ones who need a pair of versatile boots for the winter—and these Ruk dress boots deliver for the guys. This chukka boot style is lightweight and versatile, and will look at home at the office, the store or a party. The leather and suede material help regulate heat, keeping your feet cool and dry. The sturdy toe box protects your feet while offering plenty of room to move, and the lightweight outsole provides a skid-resistant finish. The shoe’s construction also provides extra medial and lateral support and stability for day-to-day activities.
These substantial boots will protect your feet from the elements during a tough winter while still looking and feeling stylish. The Highline boots unite a soft genuine leather exterior with a seamless, breathable lining on the inside. The shoe upper is padded with foam, with extra padding on the tongue and collar for added comfort. The ½-inch heel height (the difference between heel and forefoot) promotes proper walking and standing posture, while the thick sole absorbs shocks and cushions your foot. For superior fit, the shoe is also constructed on an anatomical last, with extra width across the midfoot and toe-box.
