The health of your feet is a very important factor when thinking about your work. Uncomfortable work boots and shoes can be a pain in the butt, and in the foot, especially if your job requires you to be on your feet for several hours a day. No one wants to suffer from tired, achy feet day in and day out, but how do you know what types of footwear won’t cause foot pain and discomfort? Luckily, the American Podiatric Medical Association's (APMA) Seal of Acceptance Program does the homework for you and finds the best in footwear - shoes and boots that are not only comfortable, but also promote good foot health if worn long term.
The American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) Seal of Acceptance Program seeks out and recognizes footwear products that promote foot health and may even be used as professional treatment, and select Blundstone footwear had made that list. The Seal is only awarded to a product after being scientifically evaluated by the Podiatric Seals Committee. This scientific evaluation determines if the product will promote quality foot health and also allow normal foot function. The product must also prove to be safe and useful. The APMA awards the Seal of Acceptance not only to provide podiatrists (doctors specializing in foot anatomy and conditions of the feet, ankles and related parts of the leg) with information to pass along to patients, but also help the general public make the best decisions regarding their own foot health.
Awareness of the APMA Seal of Acceptance and what products have earned the Seal can help you as a consumer make informed footwear purchases. If you’re on your feet for the majority of the day, foot health should always be a priority. Footwear that holds the Seal, including Blundstone Footwear, promises to have significant benefits to overall foot health.
