Break out the dessert shoes once in a while

In between technically difficult ankle surgeries and dermatology-heavy diabetic wound care, podiatrists spend a lot of time talking about shoes. Most people take them for granted; they're just another part of your morning routine - something you slip on as you leave the house without realizing they could seriously affect your feet.
