PLYMOUTH, Minnesota — Giving our feet a little fresh air by breaking out the sandals and flip-flops is one of the joys of summer. 

Yet, experts say some of our favorite summer shoes can also be pretty rough on our feet.

“Generally, people have more problems with their feet during the warm summer months because they’re more active but wear less supportive shoes or go barefoot," says Shelby Hyllengren, a podiatrist with Allina Health. "We see injuries, from cuts and scrapes to infections and broken bones, because our feet just aren’t as protected.”

Dr. Hyllengren shares tips on how to select the right shoes during the summer season. For more information on caring for your feet, click here.
