The Best Spring Shoes for Your Feet, According to a Harvard Doctor

We're not ones to disagree with anything a Harvard doctor has to say, and that includes foot health recommendations. In an interview for Footwear News, Casey Kerrigan, MD, (who also has her own athleisure shoe line) waxed poetic on the damage that high heels do on your knees (it's bleak), the importance of foot health, and shoe shopping tips. But since the light at the end of the long wintry tunnel is finally near, we currently have spring footwear on the brain, which Kerrigan also touched on. When asked how to promote spring foot health, she said, "Pedicures. And, what's really wonderful is having good air exposure. I'm a huge proponent of wearing sandals."

Sandals for spring might not seem very groundbreaking, but we're pleased that even though they're not always the most supportive shoe style, they're good for our feet regardless. Shop a few of our favorite breathable spring sandals below.
