Do Shoes Cause Foot Problems?

Depending on whom you speak with in the medical field, some feel that improperly fitted shoes or the wrong shoe last do cause foot problems. I can't dispute this to a certain degree. However, I see a variety of foot problems and find that a great share of them are caused more from a musculoskeletal breakdown. The shoe may aggravate the condition, but isn't the primary cause. With the exception of corns and callouses around the toes, as well as some other conditions, my statement is generally not disputed by most in the medical community.
