Best Shoes For Walking On Concrete All Day Long (No Arch Pain!)

Do you feel the pressure of your entire body acting on the feet? These are the best shoes for walking on concrete or any hard surfaces.

I’ve seen people around my industry removing the shoes they wear and rubbing the foot arch against some smooth curved surface. They do it for almost 2 minutes straight daily. That’s around 13 hours per year!

Remember, people with productive mindset like us cannot afford to waste time. If you are the guy facing the same because of the common foot problems like,

  1. Athlete’s foot
  2. Plantar fasciitis
  3. Diabetic neuropathy
  4. Blisters
  5. Bunions
  6. Corns
  7. Heel spur, or
  8. Stone bruise.
  9. Flat feet

You may have to choose these shoes as recommended by my physiotherapist Mrs. Ivana Kramar.

Note: If you already brought a shoe, but it doesn't relieve pain as expected, try a plantar fasciitis arch support insole for men and women made by easy feet store. I used those a few years back. Change it every 5 months.

What Causes Foot Arch Pain?

The foot arch pain is very common among runners but non-runner may also experience the tearing sensation. It causes because of

  1. Very high arch
  2. Intense training without stretching
  3. Improper running and weight lifting techniques
  4. Poor choice of walking and running shoes
  5. Obesity
  6. High pressure on heel

If your body is overweight, naturally your foot tendons become weaker. Perform additional stretches like toe grabs, stretching upper feet using a towel as shown here.


If you have quite a good budget, try FitVille Extra Wide Unisex and Ortho feet Walking Shoes which costs $85 and $130, respectively. This is a pure beast suitable for rough and tough use with flexible arch support.


Material For Pain Relief

The shoes listed here are breathable, eco-friendly, anti-odor, lightweight and flexible, waterproof, and last but not least, engineered for comfort.

The material is an Active-air technology with meshes. This material absorbs and releases moisture from the air so that you will never feel sweaty or moist again even after a marathon.

The knitted upper fabric, the padded collar, lasts long and comes with anti-odor moisture-wicking properties to keep your foot fresh.

Shoes Based On Sole Thickness

The soles may be flat in some low-quality shoes. They act as an extra comfort to the heel. They are bought as rubber and engineered into comfortable designs as per customer’s needs.

A good inner sole should-
  1. Absorb shock,
  2. Have long-lasting cushion gel.
  3. Provide medium-elastic arch support.
  4. Have anti-slip technology
  5. Be odorless

FAQs

With common foot pain problems like foot arch pain, plantar fasciitis, bunions, choose shoes with wide toe room instead of pointy. Make sure they have medium-elastic foot arch support and anti-slip features.

What shoes should I wear with the athlete’s foot?

The shoes you choose should be breathable i.e. the ability to flush out moisture or sweat easily. E.g. Canvas, leather. It should have an anti-bacterial odorless inner sole and foam material. Prior to that use dusting powder regularly. Avoid synthetic materials like plastic and leather.
