Good shoes are important to one’s well-being, here are some tips to help you find the best fitting footwear.

  • Shoes should have a comfortable snug fit but should not feel tight or binding.
  • Walk around in the shoe and be sure they feel comfortable. Make sure there are no pressure points from seams
  • Always buy shoes that are wider than your foot. Stand next to the shoe you have selected, and check if it is wider than the broadest part of your foot.

  • Feet grow as we age. You should measure your feet yearly. Also, shop for shoes at the end of the day when your feet are at their largest.
  • Avoid shoes that have heels higher than 2 ¼ inches for everyday wear. You are applying massive amounts of force to the ball of your foot, by lifting the heel above your toes past a safe distance.
  • Always have your feet measured before buying a footwear because the size of your feet changes as you grow older
  • If you can't wiggle your toes in them, don't buy those shoes
  • Wear running socks when buying a new pair of running or exercise shoes
  • For those who walk as exercise, shoes should be replaced roughly every 6 months. For normal use, sneakers should be replaced every year. Visit Shoosed portal for more.
