How To Purchase Shoes

Monday, 16 September 2019 00:00

Research has indicated the importance of choosing the correct shoe size. When shoes that are worn fit properly, uncomfortable foot conditions may be prevented. It is beneficial to try shoes on in the afternoon when the feet are generally at their largest. It is helpful to use a Brannock device to determine your exact shoe size. When shoes are tried on, it is important to ensure there is adequate room for the toes to move freely in. Additionally, the correct size and style shoe will fit properly when they are initially tried on, and will not have to be “broken in”. It is important to notice how well the sole of the shoe is constructed which is instrumental in providing enough cushioning and support. If you would like to know more information about how to purchase shoes that fit correctly, it is suggested that you speak to a podiatrist.

Getting the right shoe size is an important part of proper foot health. Seek the assistance of Dr. Robert Graser from Graser Podiatry and Bunion Surgery Institute. Our doctor will provide the care you need to keep you pain-free and on your feet.

Getting the Right Shoe Size

There are many people who wear shoes that are the incorrect size, negatively affecting their feet and posture. Selecting the right shoes is not a difficult process, so long as you keep several things in mind when it comes to choosing the right pair.

  • When visiting the shoe store, use the tools available to measure your foot.
  • Be sure there is ‘wiggle room’. There should be about an inch between your toes and the tip of your shoes.
  • Do not always assume you are the same size, as manufacturers run differently.
  • Purchase shoes later in the day, as your feet swell as the day progresses.
  • If a shoe is not comfortable, it is not suitable. Most shoes can’t be ‘broken in’, and comfort should be the ultimate goal when it comes to choosing the right pair of shoes

As our feet hold our body weight and keep us moving, it is important to treat them right. Picking the right pair of shoes can provide your feet comfort and mobility without pain.
