The Good & Best Dr Martens Work Boots for Bunions/Plantar Fasciitis

Spread the love

The Dr. Marten’s boot is a great choice for both men and women who suffer from foot pain. The boots have a thick, rigid and non-flexible sole that protects the foot joints from too much motion, which means there is less strain and stress on painful joints.

It also has a wide toe box, has plenty of room and fantastic rearfoot control.

Less motion means less inflammation too, less damage, less swelling and significantly less foot pain. A rigid sole will also help slow the progression of bunions, hammertoes and osteoarthritic joint changes.

Extra Tip

You can add a thin heat-moulded insert or a dress orthotic to Dr. Marten’s boot for better arch support.
