What type of shoe would you recommend for someone suffering from knee pain and who works in a restaurant?

Hi, Beth,

Thank you for your question. In our experience, we’ve found that wearing shoes that allow your foot to function like a bare foot inside the shoe is often helpful in addressing certain types of knee pain. This depends on the underlying problem, however. To better understand your particular knee issue, we recommend that you consult a local healthcare provider.

We’ve found that most people in the service industry have enjoyed using the Lems Primal 2 shoe. The Primal 2 is very comfortable and meets all of our criteria for a foot-healthy shoe, and it can easily accommodate Correct Toes toe spacers.

Depending on your work environment, you may also be able to wear the Ahinsa Ananda Ballerina:

If you have any questions moving forward, please do let us know. We’re happy to help!

Kind Regards,
Andrew Potter

I understand completely and am grateful that you, the surgeon, and everyone else involved in bringing this to the public has done so precisely. I have plantar fasciosis that is extremely limiting my activities of daily living. I got the shoes, the toe socks, and the Correct Toes toe spacers. Wonderful—I will let you know how the healing goes. I’m very happy now that my feet, legs, and hips have a second chance to rebalance and repair themselves. Thank you!!!!!!!
