Instead, do what you love without the pain that you hate by using PR SOLES® recovery shoes - shoes that were made to reduce foot pain!

Why Do Your Feet Hurt After A Work Day?

To tell you what recovery shoes do, let us first tell you why your feet hurt after a long day at work. Being on your feet for extended periods of time causes pain just like overusing any other muscle in your body. Say your shoulders hurt after you lift weights; your feet contain muscles that become sore with overuse as well.

When you overuse your muscles, lactic acid is produced and can cause lactic acid buildup which is thought to be one of the reasons your feet hurt and swell after being on them. Your muscles may also become pulled or inflamed with overuse which perpetuates and increases the pain you are feeling.

All of that to say, your feet hurt because you are using them too much! But where do you go from here, you ask? *Enter PR SOLES® recovery shoes*

What are recovery shoes?

Recovery shoes, originally made for athletes, are a type of shoe that helps your feet recover from the activity faster. Like your arms becoming sore after a workout, your foot muscles become sore and need time to recover after activity. Since many people, athletes and active job-holders alike, cannot always do that, recovery shoes help to speed up the recovery process.

PR SOLES® recovery shoes contain ACUPOINT® technology - massaging footbeds that reduce pain, encourage blood flow and absorb impact as you step. The best part is that you are able to recover from your long day WHILE being on your feet!

Massaging has been seen to reduce pain in the foot by:

  • Reducing tension
  • Reducing inflammation
  • Encouraging blood flow
  • Reducing lactic acid buildup
  • Reducing swelling

Some people have also found relief from lower back pain, joint pain, plantar fasciitis symptoms, and arthritis pain by wearing PR SOLES® recovery shoes!

PR SOLES® recovery shoes are the perfect shoe to slip on after work. With a variety of styles, you can wear them at work, while running errands, or even in the house - check out our slippers here!
