Top 3 Shoes Recommended by Physical Therapists

 As physical therapists, we often get asked if shoes make a difference to an injury or if a specific shoe can help in recovering from an injury. Because our feet play a significant role in supporting our bodies, the type of shoes we wear can have a direct impact. Here are three brands of shoes recommended by physical therapists that provide excellent support, are comfortable and affordable.


Asics shoes are great for anyone who is on their feet a lot. If you enjoy running they are perfect for that as well. The price range varies but starts at around $60. The higher in price you go, the better comfort and support you get. If you have flat feet, you will love their Duomax instep. Asics are a very nice all-around shoe for the average person.

New Balance

There is something for everyone when it comes to New Balance shoes. They have a good tread for outdoor walking. They may not be the best choice if you are seriously into running, but overall, they meet the needs of pretty much everyone. They cost, on average, between $60 – $100 and come in wide sizes.


Saucony is comparable to Asics but costs less. They provide a moderate level of support and comfort to the average person needing that but at a more affordable price. If you are not an avid runner or walker but want something for everyday wear around the house, these shoes are a good option.
