Are Crocs cool now? An expert and editors share why they love the controversial shoe
Between the return of low-rise jeans and the rise of cargo pants, the past few years have given us plenty of unexpected trends. But none are quite as shocking as the recent popularity of one of the most hotly debated shoes in history: Crocs.
They've always been a go-to for anyone who favors comfort in their footwear, but now the clunky slip-on shoes have officially gone mainstream. The company's Classic Clog has held a steady place on the Amazon bestsellers list for over a year now and is currently the No. 1 bestselling item across all clothing, shoe and jewelry options on the site.
While it may come as a shock to some, it's not that hard to see why the shoes are so popular: They're comfortable, affordable and easy to slip on when you're headed out the door to run a quick errand — and, as podiatrist Dr. Miguel Cunha tells us, they're not too bad for your feet either. We're breaking down what you need to know about the brand, including its popularity and the top shoes to shop, below.
The best walking shoe for you depends on your foot type
Getting daily exercise is essential for good physical and mental health, whether you work out at the gym, walk your dog or commute by foot. Regular physical activity — even a moderate-intensity mile walk — can improve brain health, help manage weight, reduce the risk of disease and strengthen bones and muscles, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. But if you're not wearing walking shoes that fit properly, you could develop a host of uncomfortable side effects, including pain in the feet, hips, and lower back or common conditions like bunions and plantar fasciitis, says Jesus Esparza, fit expert at Road Runner Sports.
Rocker Shoes Are The Best For Your Hot Girl Walks
When you hear about rocker shoes, you may start thinking of musicians onstage wearing leather boots while shredding on their guitars. However, rocker shoes are actually something quite different and probably a lot more functional than the fashionable footwear of a rockstar. In fact, they can be really good for your feet.
Rocker shoes get their name because of how they rock your feet from heel to toe as you walk in them. Instead of shoes with a totally flat sole, these have a curved sole, which can be located in different spots depending on the type of shoe; where the curve is can have different benefits for different parts of your feet. Rocker shoes can also keep your feet from getting as tired. That way, you can feel more comfortable walking longer.
Best fitness apparel from Lululemon, Hoka, Brooks and more: Select Wellness Awards 2023
The right workout outfit can motivate you to hit the gym and even make it more fun — but think of exercise leggings, sports bras and sneakers as fitness equipment, not just accessories, say our fitness experts.
Just like shoddy dumbbells can hinder your workout, uncomfortable or unsupportive clothes and shoes can, too. High quality, effective products to help you recover from exercise by soothing sore muscles or dulling aches and pains are also critical to help you feel your best.
So we tried dozens of shoes, leggings, sports bras and more to find the best for your workouts.
‘Barefoot boy summer’: Shoeless hunks reclaim ‘hot girl’ season
Who let the dogs out?
A-list hunks are being caught barefoot — in public.
Before you ask, no, they’re not at the beach, nor are they darting down the driveway to grab the mail. They are baring all 10 toes on the scorching hot Los Angeles pavement as they run errands and grab a bite — leaving the internet scratching its head.
“Barefoot boy summer,” which supersedes “short king spring,” is the free-spirited cousin of “hot girl summer,” a 2019 trend inspired by Megan Thee Stallion’s iconic “hot girl” attitude.
The phrase — or, rather, lifestyle — is for people who are the “life of the party,” unapologetically themselves and can “be a bad bitch,” the rapper told the Root.
A podiatrist says this is one of the top sneaker brands he recommends to patients
If you've ever asked your friends or colleagues what their go-to brand is for comfortable sneakers, there's a good chance that Asics made its way into the conversation.
The classic brand is known for its comfortable footwear that can be worn for everything from runs to long days on your feet. And Dr. Miguel Cunha, a podiatrist and founder of Gotham Footcare, says that Asics is among the "most recommended brands of sneakers" in his practice.
So what makes them so good for your feet? We asked Dr. Cunha to walk us through the benefits of the shoes and some of his favorite pairs.
The 8 best men's running shoes of 2023, according to experts
As host of her own travel show on PBS, Samantha Brown spends a lot of time on her feet. So when her dogs are barking, she relies on a trick she learned years ago while working grueling double shifts as a restaurant server in New York City: Whenever she had a short break, she’d switch into flip flops to give her toes some fresh air and space to spread out. Then, Brown would sprinkle on powder to absorb moisture and odor. When it was time to get back to work, she’d change into a fresh pair of socks before once again slipping on her work shoes.
8 best running shoes for men in 2023
Not all workout shoes are made the same. Running shoes in particular are made to make a marathon feel more like a mile. While that might be hyperbole, there is some truth to it.
Between the Select team and yours truly, we run dozens of miles every week. We've raced in dozens of different 5Ks, 10Ks, half-marathons and marathons. To find the best men's running shoes on the market, I spoke with fitness and medical experts to better understand the essentials to look for. Then, I ran around New York City in dozens of popular shoes from top brands.
Foot trend that is tickling some toes and making others cry "foot foul"
Do you run barefoot through the park or down the street?
If so, health experts say to just know what you might be stepping on.
There's actually a name for going barefoot all or most of the time, and it's called grounding. Some say that when your feet are in direct contact with the earth, it helps with stress relief and leads to better sleep.
Researchers at the Ecology Center say studies have found that electrons of the earth's surface absorbed by the skin have an antioxidant effect.
Dr. Miguel Cunha told Time Magazine, "Walking barefoot on carpeted floors can increase circulation and strengthen the muscles in your feet."
However, when you're not walking on carpet, most doctors say to look out as going barefoot for long periods of time can actually change the mechanics of your feet.
This could lead to things like bunions, hammer toe, and Achilles injuries.
There are also tiny cuts on the feet that we can't see or feel, and if the feet come into contact with the wrong thing, such as hair from a chihuahua, it can lead to an infection.
Podiatrists also warn of sunburn as the feet aren't used to being exposed all the time to the sun's rays.
Your Feet and Ankles Deserve a Nice Stretch, Too—And This 8-Minute Session Hits All the Good Spots
Any time we walk, run, jump, squat, or generally move our bodies from the feet-up, the muscles in our ankles snap to attention to make it happen. So if you want to keep everything in ship-shape, consider doing some ankle stretches. The ankle muscles, as well as the ligaments and tendons that as a whole make up the ankle joint, can get tight and lose mobility just like other joints.
Luckily, we've got you covered with everything you need to stretch your ankles. You can follow along with this 8-minute stretching and strengthening session by trainer Nicole Uribarri (above), made for Well+Good's Good Stretch series. Or, keep reading to learn why your ankles—and feet and calves—deserve some stretching love, too.
This Travel Pro’s Trick Can Relieve Tired, Achy Feet After Standing All Day—And It’s Podiatrist-Approved
Beauty starts from the bottom up — how to care for your feet, according to podiatrists
Sweaty feet and an unkempt pedicure are not a cute combo when you're wearing sandals, especially when it's hot and humid outside. Personally, I've never been concerned about foot health until I embarked on my footwear (obsessed) journey and realized my feet were being neglected.
The majority of Americans have logged approximately 75,000 miles of movement by the age of 50, according to the American Podiatric Medical Association, but the opportunity to stride even further is possible with an effective foot care routine.
Aside from preventing common mishaps like ankle injuries and tendon problems, a proper foot care regimen can target everyday woes like blisters, calluses and odor issues. Shop TODAY reached out to a couple of foot experts to determine how to protect your soles and keep them healthy for the long haul.

According to Miguel Cunha, DPM, podiatrist and founder of Gotham Footcare in New York, "The best shoes for arthritic feet will reduce or eliminate foot pain, which has a tremendous impact on the body's function and mobility."

10 Best Breathable Shoes for People With Sweaty Feet
Peeling off your sneakers after a walk or workout and finding soggy, sweat-soaked socks can be annoying. Though it’s normal for your feet to perspire, especially in the warm weather, if the slippery feeling is hindering your ability to enjoy your favorite exercise routine—or if the odor is making you self-conscious—you might want to consider upgrading your shoe game with a more breathable pair.
Choosing the right footwear is also important to your well-being—non-breathable shoes may cause or exacerbate health ailments such as athlete’s foot or nail fungus, especially if you have a condition like hyperhidrosis that causes excess perspiration, Miguel Cunha, DPM, a sport podiatrist and the founder of Gotham Footcare in New York City, tells SELF. “What’s important is that you pick shoes with proper ventilation.”

Whether you’re always on your feet at work, traveling, running errands or walking is your main form of exercise, having a comfortable and supportive pair of sneakers is the key to happy feet. No we’re not talking about the adorable, animated penguin movie.
While many experts will say that shopping for walking shoes online isn’t as ideal as going into your local shoe shop to try them on in person, sometimes going into the store isn’t always possible. Be that time, convenience or even laziness — we’ve got you covered.
The 9 Best Running Socks of 2023
Balega’s Blister Resist Quarter Socks help prevent blisters and chafing.
Running is a great form of exercise with extensive benefits, such as lowering your risk of heart failure.1 But if we want to reap the benefits of running, we need to make sure we’re doing it in a safe and effective way. Setting yourself up for running success goes beyond just finding a comfortable pair of shoes. In fact, a proper pair of running socks can be vital for making sure you’re not only comfortable but also protecting your feet when it matters most.
7 best rain boots for women to keep your feet dry and comfortable
If you’ll need to bear the rain at any point this year, these expert-recommended rain boots can help you — and your socks —stay dry.
For many, a good pair of rain boots are a staple for the springtime: They can shield your feet from unexpected puddles and the dreaded walks to work in rainy weather, and they ensure you’re not running around with uncomfortably wet shoes even when you have an umbrella on hand. Rain boots differ from your typical snow boots because they’re usually completely crafted with waterproof materials like rubber and polyvinyl chloride (PVC). And you won’t have to sacrifice style for functionality: They’re available in a variety of silhouettes, including sleek Chelsea boots to complete a chic outfit or tall boots that feel reminiscent of your childhood pair.
‘I’m a Podiatrist, and I Don’t Go a Day Without Recommending These Sneakers’
Finding the perfect pair of sneakers is similar to finding a soulmate. You may have to go through a lot of pain and discomfort along the way, but when it's right, you'll know immediately. And while the sneaker market (similar to the online dating pool) has no shortage of options, there's one pair that a podiatrist recommends time and time again as being a match for everyone.
The Asics Gel Kayano has come up repeatedly as being the best foot-stabilizing shoe money can buy, and Miguel Cunha, DPM, founder of Gotham Foot Care in New York City, has touted its benefits for walking, running, and every activity in between. It's designed for people who need a bit more stability in their movement (aka people with flat feet, whose feet "overpronate" or roll inward when they run), and has next-gen technology that provides both comfort and support.
Here’s the Secret Way To Get These Podiatrist-Beloved, Best-Selling Hoka Sneakers 20% Off—Before They Sell Out
It is no secret that the Hoka brand has made a splash in the athletic shoe space. From walking shoes to running shoes to collabs with fashion brands bringing them into the fashion sneaker realm, they’ve made ripples (yeah, we’re still going with the water metaphor) in just about every footwear category a sneaker brand can.
Are they worth the hype? Judging from podiatrist feedback, we say yes. Of course each foot is different, but the design and cushioning of Hokas get Dr. Miguel Cunha’s seal of approval. Cunha, DPM, is a board-certified podiatrist with Gotham Footcare who previously told Well+Good that shoes that support healthy feet “will have soles that don't look as though they have any arch, because the arch area will be filled with extra padding.” The Hoka Clifton 8 is one of his recommendations for this reason.
A Hot Girl's Guide to Having Bunions in Your 20s
Recommendations for you—or for anyone on your gift list who shares this regrettable problem.
As the daughter of a woman who clocks in at 4’11”, I was introduced to the allure of high heels at a young age, and have dabbled in some fashionable elevation myself over the years: a toe-cramming gladiator heel here, a fatally pointy thigh high boot there. But any shoe fanatic will tell you that a pretty shoe is almost never a comfy shoe—beauty is pain, after all. And after a relatively short career in glamorous footwear and at the youthful age of 25, I’ve been forced to box up my beloved collection and succumb to only the most accommodating of footwear. The culprit? A villainous bunion. No, the star of my quarter-life crisis isn’t a career spiral, nor is it a relationship I suddenly realized I wasn’t happy in. While those troubles do seem pretty stressful, no words could ever adequately describe the pain of dealing with a worsening bunion—physically and aesthetically.
Yes, You Probably Already Need To Replace Your Running Sneaks—Get These Podiatrist-Approved Brands on Sale Now
When I started running during the pandemic and realized my worn-out cross trainers weren’t going to cut it, I bought myself a pair of cream and pink Nike Pegasus 28s. They saw me through my first long run, my rejuvenating runs on weekends away, my sad runs for processing the things I was missing out on because of COVID, the joyous runs like the one celebrating my birthday.
So when the Nike Run Club app told me I'd logged over 300 miles, and that it was technically time to replace them, it was bittersweet. I felt a sense of accomplishment at all of the miles I had run in those Pegs, but also a little bit of sadness at bidding them adieu. They had helped me get through so much.
Your Guide To Getting Baby Soft Feet
On a daily basis, our feet are on the receiving end of seemingly harmless activities like walking, running, dancing, and wearing open-heeled shoes. According to a 2014 poll by the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA), eight out of 10 Americans have dealt with foot issues, which can range from an ingrown toenail to persistent foot discomfort. Excessive wear and tear is the number one reason why our feet are highly prone to calluses and corns.
Aging also plays into the gradual dehydration of your feet, causing your feet' skin to look dry and flaky. Over time, the sweat glands in the feet lose their activeness and make the skin look dry, so we need to be warier of our hydration levels as we get older, podiatrist Margaret Dabbs tells The Guardian. "To help prevent and treat common foot complaints, good home care is necessary," she emphasizes. With the right tools and products, our feet can regain their softness and flexibility in no time. While a trip to the salon for a pampering pedicure treatment is a good way to kickstart your foot care routine, there are numerous techniques you can try at home to get baby-soft feet.
Are Crocs Actually Good For Your Feet?
The idea of Crocs came to life back in 2002 when three businessmen wanted to improve upon a foam shoe they saw during a sailing trip in the Caribbean. Ultimately, Crocs were created with the intention to be comfortable, functional, and easy to wear when participating in activities like boating, sailing, or going to the beach. In 2003, the women's style of Crocs named the Nile was introduced. Soon after that, the company acquired Jibbitz, the manufacturer that designs the small pin-like accessories that snap into the holes of the Crocs, which gives the shoe an extra customizable option. Since then, Crocs have been a fashionable debate amongst society (via MasterShoe).
You may recall a time when Crocs were seen as the "ugly" or "embarrassing" shoe to be wearing. Many people still feel that today, though not as strongly as back in the day. Others, however, have fully embraced them for not just their unique, quirky look but also their comfort. These shoes were created with that in mind, but the question is: are they actually good or beneficial for your feet?
10 Things You Can Still Do In Your First Trimester But Not In Your Second
With the changes the body undergoes during the second trimester, many of the things that were okay during the first trimester are now off-limits.
The first trimester of pregnancy is filled with excitement, anticipation, and a bit of anxiety. It is also when women face some worst pregnancy symptoms. With things such as morning sickness, fatigue, or even pregnancy insomnia, it is no wonder that those expecting are excited to transition out of the first trimester and into the second. What many do not realize though is that entering the second trimester means far greater restrictions than were experienced with the first. Therefore, even though women may be feeling better and have energy, many of the things they could do in their first trimester they cannot do in the second. Leaving women to figure out what a new normal is as they navigate the journey of pregnancy.
The Common Pedicure Item That Could Be Game Changing For Your Balance
We owe our toes a lot of thanks. Made up of tendons, nerves, soft tissue, and more, our toes play a major role in supporting our body weight, maintaining posture, and propelling us forward as we move, reports Gotham Footcare. With 14 toe bones found in each one of our feet, the big toe, in particular, is pivotal for shock absorption (via Kinetic Health). But the benefits don't stop there, our toes are also instrumental to our balance (per Gotham Footcare).
Despite all that our toes do for us, however, physiotherapist Aaron Horschig tells Glamour that most of us aren't returning the favor. "The vast majority of people are wearing shoes that are way too narrow for them, and the toes just get smashed together," Horschig tells the publication. Yet experts at Lems Shoes say this isn't entirely our fault. Rather, the majority of modern shoewear doesn't come equipped with a wide enough toe box — the portion of the shoe that encases the toes. As a result, pain, tenderness, bunions, and issues with function and alignment can set in over time.

We hear you, which is why we spoke to podiatrist Dr. Miguel Cunha to get his tips on the kinds of shoes that can give you long-lasting comfort when you're on your feet a lot.

These Are the Best Neutral Running Shoes, According to a Podiatrist
As a general rule, Dr. Cunha says to determine your foot type, you should look at the soles of a worn-in pair of shoes. "The wear pattern illustrates where you are accumulating pressure when you walk," he explains. If your shoes are evenly worn, you have neutral feet and "an average gait with equal weight distribution across the foot."
For those with a neutral foot, you need a shoe with moderate to high stability, providing a combination of cushioning and support, according to Dr. Cunha. "A lightweight sneaker that is flexible and can bend and twist more in the middle of the shoe will be sufficient to offer a good balance of cushioning and support," adds Dr. Cunha.
