Rainbow Sandals for Sore Feet

Deborah suffered for several years with Plant Fasciitis, or painful heels, until she experimented with several brands of shoes.

Rainbow Leather Flip Flops for Men and Women

Looking for beautiful, comfortable Rainbow Sandals? This article has a large selection of Rainbow flip-flops that are perfect for the person who is looking for sandals that look great and fit well.

As a resident of Southern California who lives near the beach, it would be almost impossible to get through a week without spending at least some time in a pair of comfortable flip-flops. However, since I also suffer from plantar fasciitis, finding the right pair has not always been easy. Once my podiatrist told me that I should wear Rainbow sandals, especially the double layer ones, my life has changed. Even with my foot problems, I have been able to return to wearing flip-flops whenever I want.

Rainbows come in a variety of thicknesses and colors. They can be purchased with either thin or wide straps. Most of them are made entirely of leather, although they do have some that are made of synthetic materials that are suitable for the beach. Although Rainbow sandals are more expensive than the flip-flops you will find in the drug store, you will soon discover that they are much more comfortable and will last much longer than the cheaper versions.

Thin Straps on Top are a Popular Design

Rainbow Double Layer Wide Strap Sandals

My Favorite Flip-Flops

As mentioned above, the type of Rainbow sandals that I usually wear are the double layer flip flops with wide straps. They provide the kind of arch support that you will need if you suffer from plantar fasciitis or similar foot problems. However, you should realize that it may take you several wearings in order to break them in. I found that it takes a while for them to mold to your feet. Until the weight of your body has caused the soles to compress a bit, the straps can rub on the top of your foot. I have solved that problem by wearing a band-aid under the tightest part of the band for the first four or five times I wear the flip-flops. After that, they are perfectly molded to my feet and they are incredibly comfortable. The straps will not rub once you have broken them in.

I am apparently not the only person who loves this particular design. When I read the Amazon reviews for this sandal, I discovered that out of 78 reviews, 64 people ranked these shoes 5 stars. Only three people gave them the lowest rating of 1 star. However, as with any type of shoe, you are wise to do your own research.

I am unquestionably a lover of these flip-flops, as I own three pair and wear at least one of them almost every day.

If You Like Bling, There Are Rainbow Sandals for You, Too!

Rainbow Platform Sandals for Women

One style of Rainbow sandals that I especially enjoy wearing are these platform sandals. They are comfortable, even with my foot problems, and I feel they are a tiny bit more fashionable than the traditional sandals.

I also had the problem with the rubbing straps on these Rainbow Platform shoes until these sandals were broken in. However, they seemed to get broken in a little faster than the regular flip-flops. They are a lot of fun to wear and perfect when you want comfortable summer shoes.

I love these shoes, and they are also popular with Amazon reviewers. Nine out of thirteen reviewers gave these platform sandals a five star rating. However, one person said they thought they were too heavy. Personally, I think they are very light-weight; however, everyone is entitled to their own opinion.

What are your favorite comfortable shoes?

Rainbows are the only flip-flops that my podiatrist approves, especially when I wear the ones with the double-thick soles. They are extremely comfortable and have built in arch support.

Almost the season for sandals again. Of course here in Texas there are days year around when sandals are perfect, but the really hot days are getting closer all the time when feet will appreciate a little freedom and ventilation.

This article should give anyone thinking about some new sandals a lot of things to consider. The time is right to get ready for spring!
