Rubber boots can be a powerful tool for looking professional and they can also help keep your feet from sliding around, says Dr. Richard Riggs, an orthopedic surgeon in the University of British Columbia’s Faculty of Medicine.
“If you wear them well, they can actually help you avoid falling over,” he says.
“It’s not just a question of shoes, but of footwear in general.”
There are a few ways to use rubber boots to look more polished and professional.
Some experts recommend wearing rubber boots while sitting in a chair, so you don’t have to worry about getting too tired or slipping, and wear them for the same amount of time as shoes.
Some people prefer to wear rubber shoes in their car seats, so that they can easily slip while driving.
“You can do a lot of things with the rubber shoes,” Riggs says.
If you do wear rubber boots, keep them on tight and keep them out of the way.
Keep them away from the face and hands, as well as under the eyes.
“A lot of times, rubber shoes will get in the way of the camera,” he adds.
“But there are other ways.”
If you’re not sure what kind of shoes you should wear, talk to your doctor.
Riggs recommends that you take the time to research the type of shoes your feet will fit in.
“We’ll do a full review of your shoes and your foot size,” he explains.
“And if it looks good, we’ll give you an order of what you should order.
If not, you can order a pair of the rubber boots that are closest to your foot and the shoes you want to wear.”
Riggs also recommends that if you’re going to go for a more formal look, wear the shoes in the summer.
“This is when you can put them on in the evenings,” he advises.
If your feet are big and your feet need a break, consider adding a pair or two of rubber boots or a pair with a heel or a rubber heel.
“There are other options out there for feet,” Riggles says.
These shoes are available at Walgreens and Target, and there are also shoes at the Foot Locker and Foot Laces stores.
You can also try to find shoes with different types of rubber and other types of padding to keep your toes and feet from slipping.
