Does the shoe fit? | The Podiatrist and yourfeetnz
Make sure your shoes fit.
Wearing comfortable shoes that fit can prevent many foot problems. Consider these tips for proper foot care:
Shoe size may change as you age. Always have your feet measured before buying shoes. The best time to measure your feet is at the end of the day when your feet are largest.
- Most individuals have one foot that is larger than the other. Buy shoes to fit the larger foot.
- Always try on shoes before purchasing. Shoe sizes can vary between brands and styles.
- Walk in shoes before purchasing. The shoe heel should not slide when you walk.
- Select shoes that are shaped like your foot. High heels and pointed toes can hurt your feet.
- Leave about a half inch between your longest toe and the end of the shoe when standing.
- Make sure the ball of your foot fits comfortably into the widest part of the shoe.
- Don’t buy shoes that feel too tight and hope they will stretch.
- The upper part of the shoes should be made of a soft, flexible material.
- Soles should give solid footing with no slip.
Good foot care and regular foot checks are an important part of health care.
The Podiatrist should look at your feet often. If you have foot problems, make an appointment today.
