Foot pain can have causes that aren’t due to underlying disease. Examples include poorly fitting shoes, prolonged period on feet, overuse such as long walks or running a marathon, sprains, strains, or trauma. Here are some leading causes of foot pain and how we at Hawley Lane Shoes can help your feet to feel better.

Causes

Tight Shoes
A number of factors can cause your shoes to be tight. The length of the shoe might not properly accommodate the length of your foot, or shoe size. Similarly, the width of a shoe may be too wide or too narrow.

Inadequate Arch Support
Shoes that do not provide ample support to your arch can lead to foot pain. Many times, people with flat feet need more arch support than others, though it is important that your shoes have ample support regardless of your arch. Standing for long length of time with little arch support can lead to arch pain.

Plantar Fasciitis
Plantar Fasciitis involves inflammation of a thick band of tissue that runs across the bottom of your foot and connects your heel bone to your toes. It’s commonly caused by repetitive strain injury to the ligament of the sole of the foot such as excessive running or walking, inadequate foot gear, and jumping injury from landing.

Calluses, Bunions
Irritation or constant rubbing on parts of your foot can lead to thickening and hardening of high-contact areas. These growths can make it painful to fit your foot inside tight or ill-fitting shoes, leading to further iritation.
