Foot drop, also known as drop foot, is a locomotive abnormality which makes it difficult for you to move properly.

It is a pretty common foot problem and requires special attention to the kind of foot-wear that you wear in order to minimize the pain caused by this condition. But worry no more! We have got you covered by compiling a list of 5 best supportive footwear especially made to minimize the fatigue caused by foot drop! 

1. Women's Walking Shoes Sock Sneakers by Slow Man

  • Breathability and Elasticity
  • Easy Slip-on wear

  • Cushioning decreases after a while

Origin: Imported | Sole: MD + Air Cushion | Material: Mesh Fabric | Shipping Weight: 14.1 ounces | Package Dimensions:9.8 x 3.9 x 3.9 inches

Topping this list is the incredibly accomplished shoe by Slow Man: the Women’s Walking Shoes Sock Sneakers!  These are imported and made out of a lining of mesh-fabric with a winter style Wrap-over Faux Fur. Moreover, the sole is an MD out-sole with air cushion implying the ULTIMATE comfort that you seek! The top-notch quality of the rubber material makes it non-slip and wear-resistant, so you can use these for any purpose at all be it walking, running, long-time standing, casually, dancing, athletics, work, other outdoor activities etc.

When I ordered the shoe, I specifically took notice of the manufacturer’s note that the shoe’s sizing is similar to the street shoe size. The boxed toe in the shoe and the exceptionally soft fabric used in the shoe supports toe stands and allows breathability that I didn’t expect. The especially perforated arch allows ventilation in the shoe. The air cushion design makes it even more comfortable given that the platform design measures about 1.96” to provide maximum support and to keep my feet safe from muddy areas in the rain as well. The heel is fitted with an anti-skid MD-outsole and the cushion technology used in the shoes make them so much more lighter! 

These shoes come in a package with the dimensions of 9.8 x 3.9 x 3.9 inches and a shipping weight of 14.1 ounces. The only drawback I experienced was that I didn’t feel that they would be that durable. The cushioning kind of wears off after a while of walking. However, for the price they are a good investment. 

All in all, these shoes provide great value for money, keep your feet comfortable and allow you to have a pain-free experience. 

2. TIOSEBON Women's Athletic Walking Shoes

Best Multipurpose

  • Multipurpose
  • Lightweight
  • Slip-Resistant
  • Fashionable
  • Narrow foot-bed for wide feet

Origin: N/A | Sole: MD | Material: Textile | Shipping Weight: 1.2 lbs | Package Dimensions: 10 x 10 x 2 inches

Last Update on 2020-09-28 using Amazon Product Advertising API

The runner up on the list is a BEAUTIFUL pair of competent casual mesh sneakers that you can wear for work as well. The TIOSEBON Women’s Athletic Walking Shoes are here for your rescue from that foot-drop. These come in a package with dimensions of 10 x 10 x 2 inches and a shipping weight of 1.2 pounds. 

Made up of a textile material, these shoes have an MD sole and come in an expansive variety of sizes. These shoes are definitely for multipurpose use i.e. running, jogging, casual wear, working out, dancing, etc. My purchase was inspired by the manufacturer’s mention of “weight-loss, toning, correct posture” description about these shoes! And VOILA! I have not regretted this purchase in the least. Ladies, if you are looking for a pair of shoes that gives you comfort and a fashionable look, this is it. These go with the majority of my clothes and the breathability and cushion support they allow is worth your money. With their elastic MD outsole, these fabric upper shoes are lightweight and also slip-resistant. The top part of these shoes is a knit mesh fabric that resembles a sock-like structure by relieving pressure on top of the foot saving your feet from any kind of blisters/hurt.

Like all great shoes, these aren’t, of course, perfect. One drawback I noticed was that the inner side of the shoe, i.e. the foot-bed feels slightly narrow which doesn’t suit flat/wide feet. However, they are amazing value for money, provide support and are fashionable. 

3. Rockport Men's Eureka Walking Shoe

Best Comfort

  • Flexible
  • Lightweight
  • Heel and Forefoot Stability
  • Impact Absorption
  • Less durable than expected

Origin: Imported | Sole: Rubber | Material: Soft Leather | Shipping Weight: 2 lbs | Package Dimensions: 10 x 15 x 6 inches

Last Update on 2020-09-28 using Amazon Product Advertising API

Ranking third on this list is the imported pair of the fabulous Rockport Men’s Walking Shoes by Eureka. These shoes are made up of a soft leather and a breathable mesh lining which makes the upper flexible and lightweight. 

Coming in package dimensions of 10 x 15 x 6 inches and a shipping weight of 2 pounds, this pair of shoes has left me baffled. The number of specs and features that it packs is mind-blowing. It’s foreign San Crispino construction gives it the fashionable edge and the engineered heel stability. Its Strobel make-up gives forefeet the ultimate flexibility coupled with the latex foam foot-bed. This shoe is basically a drop-foot’s savior.  Moreover, the EVA mid-sole adds to the flexibility and lightweight, ultimately making impact absorption one of its highlighted features. 

With the rubber out-soles, I expected these shoes to last me a really long while I found these shoes to be pretty durable for the first six months, they started to deteriorate eventually. 

But I would not mind paying again for this shoe given its unmatched comfort. The only reason it falls to the 3rd rank is that I expected it to be more durable than they actually turned out. Otherwise, this shoe is basically the perfect pick with that one tiny flaw that I’d be more than happy to overlook. 

4. New Balance Men's 608v5 Casual Comfort Shoe

Best Cushioning

  • Dual Density Colllar Foam
  • Maximum Cushioning
  • Maximum Flexibility
  • Narrow toe-box
  • Lesser breathability

Origin: Imported | Sole: Rubber | Material: Mixed faux-leather and breathable mesh upper | Shipping Weight: 2 lbs | Package Dimensions: 10 x 15 x 6 inches

Last Update on 2020-09-28 using Amazon Product Advertising API

Ranking second to the last of these best picks of shoes is the man made New Balance Men’s 608v5 Casual Comfort Cross Trainer Shoe. This imported shoe is made up of a rubber sole with a shaft that measures more or less low-top from arch. 

With package dimensions of 10 x 15 x 6 inches and a shipping weight of 2 pounds, these shoes have a LIST of special specs and features that I spent noticing and going through. Fore-mostly, the 608v5 comes with an “enhanced ABZORB heel pad” for maximum cushioning effect and a lot of out-sole flex grooves for unparalleled flexibility.

It provides this unmatched comfort because of the incorporated Dual Density Collar Foam and Injection Molded EVA. Moreover, the Polyurethane is responsible for the comfort your foot-drop has been craving. Entirely black in colour, these shoes are also slip-resistant and made up of leather. I found the cushioning to be far-more excellent than shoes of its price and value.

The only drawbacks that caused this pair to fall to the 4th rank were the lack of breathability due to the leather-make up of the shoe and the narrow-toe-box that can be a little inconvenient. All in all, this shoe puts up a strong fight and provides you a LOADED package of specs and features your feet would certainly enjoy.

5. Skechers Men's Go Max-Athletic Air Mesh Slip on Walking Shoe Sneaker

Best Lightweight

  • High level cushioning/support
  • machine washable
  • Various colour options
  • Not suitable for wide-feet
  • Opening is slightly narrower

Origin: Imported | Sole: Synthetic | Material: Textile | Shipping Weight: 12 ounces | Package Dimensions: 5 x 5 x 0.7 inches

Last Update on 2020-09-28 using Amazon Product Advertising API

Last but not the least, made from 100% Textile, this imported pair of “Skechers Men’s Go Max-Athletic Air Mesh Slip on Walking Shoe Sneaker” is the perfect choice to cherry top this list. As the name suggests, it’s an all-in-one product as well. Made up of a synthetic sole, the shoe’s shaft measures approximately low-top from arch giving you the comfort that you paid for. 

With package dimensions of 5 x 5 x 0.7 inches and a shipping weight of 12 ounces, the Sketchers Go Walk have especially designed mid-sole and out-sole with Goga max technology that provides the kind of cushioning and support that people with foot-drop would dream of. It is made up of a special 5Gen sole which, according to the manufacturer’s description, is a “proprietary lightweight injection-molded compound with memory retention” and hence caught my attention. I noticed that this particular feature allows the shoe to absorb impact. Moreover, these shoes are made up of special textile material and infuse a “squish” component with the lightweight mesh fabric to fit your feet. My favourite part was that these shoes are machine washable. 

However, there’s bad news if you have wide-feet. These shoes are usually easy to wear but can be a struggle if you have wide feet as the opening is a bit narrower than most. 

Overall, a very handsome pair of shoes with a range of colour options i.e. Black, Charcoal, Navy/Grey, Black/White, and Taupe. In addition, great value for money and an investment you should make if it suits your tastes!
