    Thanks. My supination is pinching a nerve on my right little toe. My Dr. says no more bare feet, and that’s how I like to spend most of my time! So I’m looking for something I can slip on and off easily as I am in and out of the garden. Who knew sandals would be so spendy! Know of any like Sanuks but without the thong part? TIA

      Try Sanuk Beer Cozy Light Slide Dress sandal, actual review says it’s very comfortable even when wet.

        I got a pair of those before I read this. I have been wearing for weeks and OMG they are so comfortable and my feet are pain free! Not thrilled about the thong between my toes, but I’ll take it. Thanks!

        Now I have to find a pair of steel toe, slip resistant boots required for my job.

      You’ll see Teva among the most popular sandals with actual reviews that they’re comfortable and supportive for both high and low arches. Teva Toachi 2 is particularly recommended for high arch by a Teva customer service representative. We also like the arch support of Naot, Mephisto, and VIONIC for high arch given that they belong to comfort footwear.

    Is it possible for a shoe to be good for both overpronation and supination? When I look at some of the shoes, they say they are for overpronators so I’m confused. i have a big supination problem, particularly on one foot. I was told to get flexible and cushioned shoes with no support features. Many of these have quite an arch, and it seems that would push my foot outward even more. I’m confused. It seems there just aren’t many shoes period for supination. I don’t drive and walk many miles every day. so I’m constantly trying to find good shoes for my feet.

      Yes, there are shoes that work for both overpronation and supination because the manufacturer designed them for irregular walking patterns. In our view, the sandals that work for overpronation and supination are Birkenstock, VIONIC, Mephisto, and Chaco. If you supinate, you only need a neutral arch support because your arch already absorbs impact well, although, some would prefer to wear sandals with high arch support (but it’s not a requirement). When it comes to running, if you have big supination problem, you should choose a neutral cushioned shoes because it’s the most efficient design for correcting supination/underpronation.

    Hello – Looking at the wear on the bottom of my shoes, I can see that I supinate because the wear is primarily on the outer edge. However I have pretty low arches, and I believe that is unusual for supinators. My legs are a little bowed, so I’m guessing thats’ the cause of the supination? My question: is there a sandal for supinators (listed above, or elsewhere) that has a low arch, to accommodate my flatter feet?

      Hello Mike. There are sandals that can correct both supination and overpronation because they are designed to correct irregular walking patterns. The top brands to look for are Birkenstock, VIONIC, Mephisto, and Chaco (but there could be more) – these brands have sandals with actual consumer reviews that say the footwear works for both low arch and high arch. If you have supination, you should look for flexible sandals with excellent cushioning in the heel and forefoot.

      Speaking of pronation of the foot, there’s also a possibility that you overpronate because low arches can cause an inward roll of foot of more than the ideal 15% roll on an impact. People with low arches have problems stabilizing their body so the feet will have to work extra hard which may also lead to wear of either outer edge or inner edge of the shoe. An excellent arch support is needed if you have low arch.
