Recovery shoes: taking care of your feet, one step at a time. Maybe you know what recovery shoes are or maybe it’s a word you hear your “athletic” friends throw around and you secretly nod in unknowing agreement (don’t worry, we all do it).

Whether you are the first, the latter, or anywhere between, do not fret! You have come to the right place! Here at PR SOLES®, we are recovery shoe experts who have designed, and created PR SOLES® because we truly do believe in them - and wear them!

In fact, many of our PR SOLES® staff members wear them everyday in the office to help them recover faster from their morning workouts. We are a family-owned business that enjoys being on our feet so we created a better shoe to help you continue doing what you love!

Okay, now that we have told you too much about us, let’s get to the good stuff.

Recovery shoes are just as they sound - shoes that help your feet recover from activity faster, enabling you to be on your feet longer and/or more frequently.

Whether you have a job that keeps you on your feet all day, you are a marathon runner, or you have been traipsing around Disney World with your energy-filled children, PR SOLES® recovery shoes help to reduce pain in the foot, legs, lower back, and even the joints! They have also been seen to help relieve symptoms for people with plantar fasciitis.

Contrary to popular belief, recovery shoes are not just for the fitness extremists of our world! They can help anyone on their feet for extended periods of time including travelers, nurses, runners, parents, and those with active jobs!

How do Recovery Shoes Work?

We like to explain recovery shoes by comparing the muscles in the feet to other muscles in the body. Take your arms for instance. Say you spend all afternoon helping your brother move into his new apartment. After lifting what feels like bricks all day because you made the poor decision of telling him you were free, your arms become tired and even more sore the next day.

Soreness can cause a range of symptoms - sometimes you have to limit what you do, while other times you are just left annoyed for a couple days.

In the same way, your feet have muscles that become sore with strenuous activity. Unlike many other parts of the body, your feet probably cannot take a rest day or two after being active. This is where recovery shoes come into play.

Recovery shoes help your muscles recover faster from activity which decreases the level of soreness, tension, and inflammation in the feet, legs, and lower back. They also help to speed up the recovery process. Instead of being sore for the full length of time, recovery shoes help to decrease this length to a smaller amount so that you are ready to get back into your routine faster.

PR SOLES® recovery shoes also help to reduce:

  • Lower Back Pain
  • Joint Pain
  • Foot Pain
  • Calf Pain
  • Heel Pain
ACUPOINT® Technology: A Massage With Each Step

PR SOLES® recovery shoes contain ACUPOINT® technology which massages your feet as you step. Massaging has been proven to reduce pain, swelling, inflammation, and tension as well as encourage blood flow. Encouraging blood flow is important because it decreases lactic acid build up in muscles which happens after activity. The ACUPOINT® technology also absorbs impact as you step which helps to relieve the pressure placed on your muscles and joints.

PR SOLES® recovery shoes can help to reduce pain from:

  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Shin Splints
  • Foot Tension
  • Lactic Acid Buildup
  • Foot Swelling
  • Arthritis

Okay, so now that you have read the expert run-down on recovery shoes, we hope you feel empowered when your athletic friends bring up recovery shoes! Go with confidence, friend, because you too have the power to boost your recovery!
