Check Your Shoe Size Annually

shoeAs time goes on, your feet, like the rest of your body, can change. Pregnancy, weight fluctuations and activities can all cause the shape and structure of your feet to shift. Feet can become wider or an arch can collapse and as a result, your shoes may start to feel uncomfortable. Without the proper fit, ill-fitting shoes can cause foot pain problems, painful blisters, corns, even ingrown toenails.[1]

During your next shoe purchase, make sure you: wear appropriate socks, request a store associate to measure your feet and make sure the shoes you choose provide a bend and cushioned support. Be sure to walk around in the shoes first and inquire about the store’s return policy should you decide that they are an ill-fit.
