What Shoes does a Foot Doctor Recommend?

What hemorrhoid cream does a proctologist use when he gets hemorrhoids?

What skin care does a dermatologist use to wash his face?

Do 9/10 dentists really use Crest?

Do Cardiologist’s ever eat fried chicken?

These are questions we would all find intriguing, right?

While you all wear shoes, some of you take your shoes VERY seriously. Maybe you’re a runner and need the “Pirelli Tires” of running shoes. Or, you are a Junior in High School and need the coolest tredz, kicks or whatever is a “dope” word for shoes. You could be a wife dressing to the 9’s but your bunion (see my bunion blog) is killing you in those stilettos. What shoes would a foot specialists recommend? I’ll tell you!

For a recommendation for comfortable women’s shoes please follow the below link to a yahoo survey. I have read some about women’s shoes as it is a VERY common question. I find Bjorn, ColeHaan, and Merrill are very well made and offer good support. I may post more on women’s shoes in the future.


I love shoes! My mother-in-law is the best at getting me shoes for my birthday, Christmas, Father’s day, etc. I try to wear every weird make of shoes out there so that I can recommend what I think is best.

At Foot and Ankle Specialists of The Woodlands we pride ourselves in being at the forefront of shoes. I highly recommend trying new shoes with great companies like Luke’s Locker. Luke’s Locker on Market Street in The Woodlands offers evaluations and fittings specific for your foot type.
