Before you knock orthopedic shoes, you should probably try them. Seriously, they're one of the best ways to take care of not only your feet, but your entire body. And the brands on our list of best orthopedic shoe brands prove that "orthopedic" doesn't have to mean "ugly."

"Ortho" means "correct" or "right," and "pedic" means "feet." When combined they mean a great shoe that any doctor (or any feet) would approve of. Orthopedic shoes offer a great solution for providing arch support, heel support, and a design that allows your feet to maintain a correct and natural shape while you strut your stuff. 

Orthopedic shoes for women and orthopedic shoes for men have long been thought of as anti-fashionable. But before you say "uh, no way" to orthopedic shoes, consider the fact that mainstream brands like Asics, New Balance, and Naturalizer offer orthopedic options that look just as great as their standard shoes. And so do the other brands on our list! 

Chuck off those heels (we know they're killing you) and take a look at our list of the best orthopedic shoes brands. Vote up the brand that has you saying "Ahhh! Finally, a shoe I can wear all day that actually looks good!"
