Summer is now upon us so it is time to dump those heavy winter boots and wear something that will keep our feet nice and cool. However, be careful of what footwear you choose as they could inadvertently cause a slip, trip or fall. One type of footwear that could cause a slip, trip or fall claim are strappy gladiator sandals.
How could strappy gladiator sandals cause a slip, trip or fall?
Gladiator sandals are usually flat shoes and these can cause serious problems with your feet. Your feet have a natural arch in them and so need some support when it comes to footwear. If you consistently wear flat shoes such as gladiator sandals this can cause some painful foot problems and could cause a slip, trip or fall.
How to avoid sustaining a slip, trip or fall injury in any footwear
Before you put the footwear on make sure they are both in good condition with no weakening of the straps or soles coming apart. Both of these issues can cause nasty slips, trips or falls especially if it happens in the middle of the road. Also, if your feet start becoming painful stop wearing them, and if the pain continues whether it was caused by a slip, trip or fall get it checked out by your doctor to ensure you have not done any permanent harm to your feet.
