Footwear recommendations can change how you can impact public health.

Footwear means so much more than just its functional use. This session will explore the key drivers behind the fashion industry and how this translates into shoe designs. Can the worlds of fashion and health meet and make changes that matter to the public?

Shoes matter on many levels to everyone, from being a statement of fashion, a part of identity, an occupational requirement or to enhance performance. This session will look at the role of clinicians in influencing footwear choices by the general public for their improved foot health. Footwear interventions provide a huge opportunity for clinicians to increase their ability to influence foot health.
