Even the pedorthists at SoleScience would agree that choosing dress shoes can be difficult. We all want a shoe that looks nice, but we want our feet to be happy too! Often dress shoes are made narrower than our other shoes, making it harder to find a good fit for feet that are not quite “normal”. On top of this, not all footwear options have a removable insole so that you can put in your orthotics insoles.
Lucky for you, and us too, there ARE dress shoes that look nice and fit your orthotics, that way you can look good AND feel good all day long.
Men’s shoes often are a bit easier as they typically have similar shapes between running shoes and dress shoes. They key point is finding a shoe with a removable insole. Here is a highlight of what is available:
