A bad pair of shoes doesn’t just lead to foot pain, it can also cause problems throughout your body: “Your feet are the foundation of your body, and if they’re not properly supported you can have problems anywhere from the bottom of your feet up through your neck,” explains Jeffery Solomon, D.C., president of the American Chiropractic Association’s Council on Sports Injuries & Physical Fitness. Choose your footwear wisely—if you have a long commute on foot, find a good pair of walking shoes that best mimics barefoot walking, then put your dress shoes on at the office.
