It often happens that the shoes that fit in the store are eventually not as comfortable. You no longer want to wear your new shoes because they don’t seem to fit like they used to. Sometimes we spontaneously buy the shoes we like and then our feet begin to burn.
How do you choose the right shoe size?
Many people think that the most important thing is to choose the right size. Wearing small shoes for a long time can lead to severe deformity of the foot or a painful bunion. If you notice that the joint of your big toe becomes red and swollen, consult a podiatrist as soon as possible. Severely clenched toes can interfere with blood circulation in the feet.
However, not everyone knows what happens if the shoe is too large. In this case, the rolling motion of the foot is disturbed. There is still a little space in front of the toes. When walking, the foot hits the floor more rigidly than it should with a smooth rolling motion. The load on the joints increases and over time, the metatarsal bones will ache.
Firstly, choose the right size. Many people have different lengths of their right and left feet, so focus on the one that is longer. If the model you like does not come in half sizes and you have to buy shoes a little bigger than necessary, you can use an insole to make it fit.
Why is it important to choose the right width?
If the width is too large, the foot dangles inside. The toes involuntarily try to hold the shoes on, which leads to overstrain and, as a result, spasms. If the width is too small, the toes and metatarsals contract with each step. The increased load causes not only pain but also the deformity of the foot.
If the shoe fits you in size, but you feel pressure, do not buy one size larger. It’s better to look for another pair of shoes.
Other tips you should be aware of
While shopping, pay attention to these small tips, which will help you choose the best shoes for your feet.
Do not be afraid to check everything scrupulously and ask the shop-assistants too many questions. In good stores the sellers will not be offended, as they are confident in the quality of their shoes. And you, in turn, must check this on your own, because your feet health is of primary importance in this case.
