It is important to note as general advice that, when buying an item like this, one should always try it out in person beforehand. We assume that you have access to that option in the following parts of the article.
Selecting Slippers That Offer Arch Support
Choosing the perfect pair
One of the prime things to look for in a slipper with arch support is shock absorbing material, specifically in and around the middle of the footbed, but optimally covering your entire foot. This reduces the amount of vibrations and shocks transferred to your feet by the ground whilst walking and is paramount in providing a comfortable user experience. If you are unable to determine whether a pair is shock-absorbing, ask a professional. Most people at enthusiasts’ footwear shops should be able to help.
Examine the material of the sole, both the insole and outsole, is made out of closely. How does it feel? This is not just about comfortability, in fact, materials that are too soft and warm are known to cause problems since they will not provide enough grip, causing your feet to slip on the footbed, potentially causing pain, if not just being an annoyance.
The outsole should be made out of rubber or something similar, providing good grip on the floor and allowing the slippers to be used indoors and outdoors fairly easily. The insole, on the other hand, could be made out of a variety of materials. Most slippers of this type employ some synthetic material, creating a soft feel but without being too thick and warm, but natural wool is a common, comfortable and reliable choice as well.
Fit and proper size
A good fit is a must. If your pair does not fit, you can leave it. Though this criterion is already very important when searching for a regular pair of shoes, when dealing with slippers, especially arch-supported ones for doing away with foot aching and pain, it becomes much more critical as a slipper that is too loose will cause harm by letting your foot slide about on the footbed. As described above, this can also happen due to insole material that is too soft and does not grip your feet well enough, so keep your eyes peeled for both of these factors.
This is very useful. A replaceable insole allows you to use different ones depending on whether you are wearing your slippers indoors or outdoors, and you can also replace the default one with a special insole catered to your needs. If you have flat feet, for example, simply inserting an insole made for people with that condition could greatly increase your comfort.
Since you are looking for slippers with arch supports, what happens when they do not fit, you may ask? Even if you found a pair that seems perfect in every way, supports that are too tight can put a lot of stress on your feet, while ones that are too loose will not contain them properly, also causing lots of problems. The best solution is an adjustable support that lets you change the tightness of the arch support. Most slippers feature this in the form of a simple Velcro strap, which is more than enough to satisfy the average buyer’s needs.
Choosing the best pair of slippers with arch support comes down to the above factors. Take all of them into consideration, think about which is most important to you personally, and then make your decision.
