Inspecting Wear Patterns On Your Old Shoes Can Help You In Picking Out New Shoes
Examining the wear pattern on your old shoes can be very helpful when you are picking out new shoes. You can find out some of the things that may have been wrong with your old shoes so you can look for a better fit and style in your new shoe. You also may find that you need orthotics or that you suffer from a foot problem you didn’t know you had.
Here are some basic things you can look for when examining your old shoes:
- If your shoes have a bulge and wear to the side of your big toe, your shoes may be too narrow or you may have a bunion.
- If you have toe-shaped ridges on the upper of your old shoes, your shoes may be too small or you may have hammertoes.
- If your shoes have a lot of outer sole wear, it means you turn your feet out. If this is the case, orthotics may be helpful for you.
- If you have a lot of wear on the inner soles of your shoes, you may pronate (turn your feet inward). Orthotics may helpful in this case as well.
- If your shoes have a lot of wear on the bottom of the foot, your heel tendons may be too tight.
- If you have a lot of wear on the upper of your shoes above the toes, the front of your shoe is too low.
