Choosing Fall Footwear
Fall foot problems are no joke, and they do occur. At this time of year, many of us are switching our summer shoes out for warmer, more protective footwear. That can cause foot problems to reoccur if you have existing issues that are irritated by footwear, or can cause new problems to develop if you choose footwear that is not a good fit for your foot.
The number one thing to look for in a shoe is comfort. A shoe that fits well will not cause you pain or feel uncomfortable and cause blisters to develop. Too many people walk in around in shoes that are hurting their feet just because they think it’s normal or the shoe needs a “wearing in” period. It is not normal at all, and you should not have to break in your footwear for it to not hurt your feet.
So, the number one rule of shoe shopping is: choose your shoes based on comfort, and make sure the shoe fits well before you leave the store. Don’t just grab a pair and go. Trying on your footwear and making sure it will fit your needs is extremely important. Take your time trying on several different types and brands and walk around a lot, making sure to try the shoes on varied surfaces. You can even try some twisting, jumping, and other movements to see how the footwear feels then, especially if you plan on using the shoes for a sport.
Remember to take the socks you plan to wear with you when you go shoe shopping. And don’t forget that shoe shopping is best done in the afternoon or at the end of the day!
