Purchase Shoes When the Feet Are at Their Largest

The overall body, in addition to the feet, may suffer when shoes do not fit correctly. There are simple methods that can help you in getting the right shoe size, and it begins with tracing your foot on a piece of paper. This may be easier with help from a family member or friend, and can be done by using a marker or a measuring tape. Many shoe stores have a Brannock device, which is generally successful in determining your correct shoe size. This can be followed by trying the shoes on and walking in them before being purchased. The majority of people have one foot that is larger than the other, and it is beneficial to choose shoes that will fit the larger foot. Additionally, the best time to purchase shoes is at the end of the day when the feet are at their largest. A podiatrist can provide helpful tips on how to determine what your correct shoe size is. Please confer with this type of doctor who will be able to give you the information you are seeking.

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.
