If you experience any type of foot or leg pain it can be difficult to walk around all day doing your regular routine. If you have a pre-existing medical condition then your health insurance should cover part of the cost of your orthopedic shoes.
Even so the expense of a new pair of shoes can be outweighed by the benefits. Once you have a shoe that fits your foot it will be so much more comfortable to walk. After you take your shoe off your foot will not be as sore and achy. Many people have noticed a decrease in their foot and knee pain within days of wearing a good pair of orthopedic shoes.
