Dutch wooden shoesAs a child, William Van Marel, Jr. worked in the factory of master shoemaker Wilhelm Jansen. Marel Jr. learned to make Dutch wooden shoes known as klompen under Jensen. The two would go into the forest and harvest trees, which Van Marel would carve and take back to his instructor for critiques. Eventually his creations began to be featured in the annual Tulip Festival, and still are today.

Although Jansen passed away, Van Marel continues to make klompen, albeit for decorative purposes, as the ones worn by participants in the festival are now imported directly from Holland.

The Importance of Proper Foot Support

Walking is an everyday function for both men and women, and in order to keep your body’s balance in order, you are going to need shoes that provide the proper kinds of support. 

Poor foot support can cause pain and discomfort in the lower back, hips, knees, neck and shoulder. It also can lead to emotional stress, and physiological changes in the body. In order to avoid these problems, you must have proper foot support.

The arch is the most important part of the foot, which is where most of the support and balance of your feet lies. The arch of your foot varies in height, and as you age, this height can change. Proper foot support will help musculoskeletal issues, which causes inactivity or disability.

When looking for shoes that give proper support to your feet, you should refrain from wearing ill-fitting shoes.  If footwear is too tight, this can affect the body’s posture, stress, bone deformities, and other foot and back pain. Therefore, it is important that shoes fit well in order to avoid these complications.

Shoes to Consider:

· Good heel and arch support
o   Have proper length and width for your feet
