Did you know that open-backed shoes can contribute to cracked heels?

This is because they allow the fat pad under the heel to expand sideways, resulting in increased pressure on the skin, which causes it to crack.

Cracked heels can become serious if the skin is thickened or callused, so it is important to keep your heels exfoliated and moistured in summer.

If you have trouble managing your cracked heels, contact us to arrange professional treatment and advice.
