Rocker Sole

Shoes with rocker soles are very stiff in the front of the shoe and often are even a little rounded, creating a rocking effect. This rocking effect helps alleviate foot pain due to conditions affecting the forefoot or ball of the foot, such as arthritis and neuromas. Rocker soles can also be used for walking or standing for long periods.
