Thankfully, Dr. Weil’s agrees. He believes our feet, are our connection to Earth. Recently, I had the opportunity to check out a pair of shoes from the Dr Andrew Weil integrative footwear line. I wanted a shoe that I could wear when working on getting fit, something that would allow me to walk and do my daily activities without killing me feet and knees.
I chose the Rhythm Walker’s, these shoes are designed to help relieve knee, back, heel, and leg pain.
I am not one to wear shoes all day, everyday, I normally only put shoes on when I am leaving the house, or going outside for something. With loving to hike, it’s important to have shoes that will be comfortable. Before receiving the Rhythm Walker’s, I was always the one trailing when we went out for hikes. My feet would start to hurt, and if I took my shoes off to walk, it felt as though my feet were on fire.
So when the Rhythm Walker’s arrived, I didn’t wait to put these on. It’s recommended you wear these only a few hours a day, so that your feet can adjust.
I found the Rhythm Walker to be very comfortable.
A few days after having the chance to get my feet use to them, we went for a hike, my feet didn’t have that burning sensation they had with my previous shoes, and remember how I said I am not one for wearing shoes, unless I go places? Well, I wear the Rhythm Walker’s, almost all the time.
I think this has to do with the fact they don’t cause my feet to hurt at the end of the day.
Some of the features I like about the Rhythm Walker’s are:
- Padded collar and tongue – This allows me to have comfort all around, no uncomfortable tongue!
- Light weight – These are the lightest shoes, I have ever owned. I have some that are so heavy it makes it hard to walk in, these are well made, but also light, which I love.
- The mesh material – The top of the shoe is made with a breathable material, this allows my feet to breath when I am walking or working out.
With the Rhythm Walker’s shoes, I can enjoy family hikes, instead of limping back to the car because I am so sore.
The Rhythm Walker comes in 4 different colors, and retail for $119.95, you can purchase them at Orthaheelusa.com or you can purchase Dr. Weil Rhythm Women’s Lace-Up Walking from Amazon.
