Valuing fashion over comfort and properly fitting shoes can increase your chances for developing a foot condition. Happily, we offer you fashionable and supportive options in The Shoe Fits, our on-site shoe stores in Suffolk and North Suffolk, VA.

A bunion is a bump that forms at the base of the big toe. They can cause pain in your joints and decrease mobility. Both genetics and mechanical instabilities play a significant role in developing a bunion. Women’s bunions create more discomfort and pain due to aggravation caused by narrow fitting shoes, but our award-winning foot doctors in Suffolk, North Suffolk and Hampton, VA, are here to help you permanently get rid of your bunions.
Women get hammertoes for various reasons. Hammertoes are commonly caused by genetics, nerve damage, and poor foot alignment. Finding shoes that fit perfectly for women can be challenging. Women can find themselves squeezing into shoes that are too small for their feet, which creates an ideal environment for hammertoes to form. If hammertoes have formed, our award-winning foot doctors in Suffolk, North Suffolk, and Hampton, VA, can help. If hammertoes haven’t formed, you should visit our Suffolk and North Suffolk shoe store, The Shoe Fits, to ensure you have properly fitting shoes.
Neuroma occurs when a nerve in the ball of your foot becomes inflamed. This is caused from continuous compression of the nerve located between the bones. Improper footwear is a huge culprit here! Wearing shoes that are too narrow will squeeze your foot and cause irritation. Inflammation in your nerve can lead to burning and tingling sensations. By seeing a shoe-fitting specialist at The Shoe Fits, you can ensure you are wearing properly fitted footwear.
The Achilles tendon connects the calf to the heel bone. Women often neglect the support they need for their feet when they wear high heels, boots, flip flops, and other types of shoes. This tends to place more stress on your tendon, causing you pain. Getting an assessment done with one of our award-winning foot doctors in Suffolk, North Suffolk, and Hampton, VA, can help you determine if you suffer from Achilles Tendinitis. You should be living your life without any pain.
Most women are always on the go! Combine this with shoes that have too little absorption, and you increase your chances of developing a stress fracture. High heels, flats, and flip flops provide little support against hard floors or outdoor pavement. Women are at higher risk of getting stress fractures from physical activity and low bone mass, which also becomes more apparent after menopause.
Pregnancy brings change to hormones and a woman’s body. It is important to care properly for your feet during this time. If you are or have been pregnant, you’ve probably experienced swelling in your legs and feet or aching in your strained arches. Find shoes that fit comfortably throughout your pregnancy, remember to trim your toenails, and rest whenever possible. During pregnancy, you can also develop plantar fasciitis and Achilles tendinitis. Our award-winning foot doctors in Suffolk, North Suffolk, and Hampton, VA, can help you find relief throughout your pregnancy.
